Pacts of a lifetime and covenants of fidelity,
The tongue is teased by words which taunt
And yet indulging in idle, unneeded frivolity
The ghost of an annihilated memory rises to haunt.
The myriad lies as always get dissolved fast
And she wonders, “Can me and you last?”
Sifting the grainy truth,
Interpreting the double meanings
Hindered by conjectures
Tired by nature’s screenings.
Will destiny please reveal itself, at last?
She still wonders, “Can me and you last?”
Embracing promises and new horizons,
Yet meeting the same dusty roads,
Casting off worries and emotional baggage,
And yet taking on heavier loads.
How can the future mutate into a remnant of the past?
Why does she still question, “Can you and me Last?”
Sheltering your shortcomings,
defending your mistakes,
But never ever, take it for granted
Do not forget what is at stake..
My heart is not enclosed and protected within an iron cast
If it breaks, she will know- me and you, we were never meant to Last.
