The Lost Sparrow

 

A million pictures in my head,

And thoughts a thousand- scattered and stray.

Posing questions in hundred odd directions.

Leaving my mind numb and all abilities at bay.

What could have been? What have you done?

How to make amends? Now where will you run?

I sit amidst my ties of blood,

While my mind wanders another world.

Homesick I feel no matter where I roam,

And I don’t know anymore where to find home.

 

I see my creator wail before me,

Then my heart too weeps for a while

Before I give in again to my wandering mind,

And it goes frisking for your one sign

Remember you swore to follow me into the dark,

In times when nothing could beat our spark

I ask why did you leave your oath behind?

Why now do you have to listen to your mind?

 

Tell me that none of it was ever true,

You see I lost myself the moment I lost you

Wasted I kept, discarding the ultimate truth,

Today I see myself as someone unholy, uncouth

Living with a self such,

Shall be my punishment.


Homesick I will feel no matter where I roam,

And I won’t know anymore where to find home.
