You held me every time as I cried today
Tears running down my face
Breathing becoming erratic
Sobbing into your shoulder,
soaking your shirt,
the time passing until I finally
had to leave for school.

I knew more and more
in every passing hour, every minute
every second, the time between the individual seconds,
that you are the one.

The one I want the get down on one knee and propose to
The one I want to marry
The one I want to grow old with
Through all the good and all the bad
You are the one I want to spend my life with,
and not be apart any longer than we have to.

Thoughts of proposals and rings rose high and mighty above all else in my brain,
rushing over all the other thoughts like a t...

गम ।

सीने मे गम दबाये रखना अच्छा नही ।
लफ़्ज़ो से जहर का रिसना अच्छा नही ।
जिसे गम न हो ऐसा दुनिया मे कोई नही ।
अपने गमों की नुमाईश लगाना अच्छा नही ।

माना के तुम्हारे हिस्से मे गम हिसाब से नही ।
पूछूं तो जो गम बाँटता है वो कंही दिखता नही ।
तुम्हारी शिकायत सुनने को किसी के पास वक्त नही ।
खुन के आंसू टपकते है पर किसी को दिखते नही ।

कोई किसी के गम लेता नही ।
मजा लेने के सिवा और कोई कुछ करता नही ।
तमाशा न बना अपने गमों का इसमे कुछ हासिल नही ।
खुशियाँ रही नही गम भी हमेशा के लिये रहते नही ।

बोया है वही काटोगे इस बात को कभी भूलना नही ।
हात मिलानेवाला हर शख्स दोस्त होता नही ।
गमों को जाहिर करने से उनकी तपिश कम होती नही ।
भुलने के सिवा गम गलत करने का कोई अच्छा रास्ता नही ।

- संजय उदगीरकर ।

Come away with me
We will steal away kisses under stars
Love broken and raw
Fingers tracing memories
Exposing all our scars

You've taken it all,
Nobody heard them fall,
These tears fell with my last wall,
Now you have my heart, my trust,
I promised you I believed in us,
Now it's all open, I'm vulnerable, pleading,
Please dont hurt me,
Because it's your love that has healed me.

Voices inside my head,
echo things that you've said.
Forces inside my soul,
Hold you and won't let you go.
Wild horses inside my mind,
Take me to a place back in time.
Lightning inside my spine
Strikes me that you are still mine.
Feelings inside my heart,
Breaks me now we are apart.
Tortured inside my life,
One day we'll make it alright.

Your eyes reminds me of an ever sinking ocean of dreams
Your mouth twitching into a smile so dreamy
Your finely manicured teeth slyly peeping out at me
Your nose suspended as my heart feels right now
Your eyebrows stretching for lengths into fine contours
Your tiny wrinkles forming puddles of joy and sorrow
Your enormous ears where I want to speak all night long
Your stubble where I lose myself so often
Your neck where I can snuggle forever
Your arms where I left my soul to rot
Your crotch which united with my energy so divine
Your legs which reached me always on time
You. Your aura and my trauma.
It lives and decays. Ever like time.
Your eyes reminds me of a graveyard sometimes.

Me dice que meta mano
Pero de seguro lloras
Con nuestra foto en la mano,
Y si!!!,  lo nuestro fue bakano

En este momento
Me fuy en sentimiento
Con lagrimas en los ojos
Me estoy despidiendo

Yo diciendo  adiós
Y háblarte lo que siento
El porque yo, salí corriendo
Este sube y baja
me llena de miedo

De ver a una dama bella
En constante progreso
No tengo que ofrecer
no soy piedra de tropiezo

Usted va pa arriba
Y En economía sigo tieso
Me quedo aquí en palco
Viendo tu progreso

Una mujer bella
Con sueño muy intenso
Yo dando golpes de suerte
Sigo fallando en el intento

Y hoy me arrepiento
Pero en este juego
yo soy de el equipo
Que en la 9na va perdiendo

Ya las Estrellas como...

Pieces
Through life I have loved and I have lost
Living in pieces
Giving a part of me every time I love
Falling to pieces
Until you came along
Saw all of my brokenness and loved me anyway
Picking up the pieces one by one
With your love you put me back together
All of my pieces no longer left broken

I must grow old
Sometime
Alone
In a darkened room
My body
More bone than flesh

I will remember tonight
Someday
Of rain
On window pane
And silence
In the street

Old songs
On the radio
And memories of you
And I
Dancing together
Someplace

Love that grows on a tree;
where branches turn into hugs
and leaves curl smiles
while they sway with laughing winds. A touch of hope on fragrant buds, saplings green like promises of spring
where the fruit is sweet and juices overflow.
With rough skin of bark,
tough and resilient to critters
that burrow and nest  through the years.
Roots that hold and nourish, a steadfast clock.
It’s the kind of love I wish for, the kind that grows on a tree.

|LA ESPERA SACIADA
Porque sé que estás ahí, que tu corazón sigue latiendo por mí y que mis ojos ya no son culpables... se convirtieron en víctimas de tus encantos.
Sigo esperando tu abrazo sin que uses tus brazos y tu beso sin tocar tus labios carnosos...
Sigo pensándote y ya no me avergüenza ser sumisa de tus pensamientos...
¡Ya no tengo miedo! ¡Vives en mí y yo te quiero así!
No te tengo miedo, sólo tengo temor a este sentimiento que es inmortal.
Ya no hay espera puesto que no me imagino nada...
Hice un pacto con la vergüenza y cada vez que estoy sola y te pienso este se rompe.
-Aynara.

All i do is run away from you
All we feel is to run back to you
Paradox prevails

All i want is to talk to you
All you do is you say ‘I love you’
All i ask is a call from you
All you do is run away from me
Paradox prevails

All i want is to hold you
All you do is you say ‘We will’
All i ask is few moments with you
All you do is run away from me
Paradox prevails

All we are, are crazy lovers
All we do is we wait for each other
Only love prevails

True love.

Amidst the wakful morning,
A dream after a millennium.
A game being played,
By Him and Me,
And He always told -
"If He wins, I'll become His. And if I win, He'll become mine".
The subconscious me not being aware of it,
went towards the winning.
Alas, I didn't know it was Him letting me win.
A strike of revelation hit me - a realization in a dream,
And I kept the game aside.
I guess He was happy,
But more happy would He be if I had let Him win.
Thus ended this bittersweet dream,
with my Beloved teaching me in His "mysterious ways".

Cry from my inner realm.

It was time.
The burden was humongous.
My heart was the bearer and my mind was the maker.
Tangled in this Maya,
of this materialistic world,
I was lost.
Thoughts upon thoughts,
Impressions upon impressions,
They just poured in.
Silent and subtle signals from the heart were sent,
to rescue my soul in trouble.
Nay, the mind never listened, never satisfied.
It was time.
The heart cried. Voice resounding across multiple realms.
The call took place.
And then, it happened -
He came.
He saw.
He conquered...

You are the kind of person that falls in love
with the moon and the stars, every single night,
as though you were seeing them for the first time.
You worship the sun because even on the darkest of days,
it still manages to shine so it’s no surprise that you always end up hurting like hell when love is involved.
You give 100 percent of yourself all of the time and yet no one has ever managed to match your level of love like the sky can.

‘When it comes to love, the sky never disappoints.’

Entraste en mi vida
como el destello de un rayo
que sin pedir permiso
cae en el medio de la noche.

Nuestros caminos se cruzaron
con la casualidad impertinente
que lleva el destino escrito
por pereza o por falta de costumbre.

Yo estaba sentado mirando por la ventana
con la mirada perdida en un remolino de gente
que apuraban el paso para terminar de cruzar
antes que el semáforo terminara su conteo y se ponga verde.

La luz del sol bailaba en las ventanillas de los autos
y por alguna razón del espacio y del tiempo
sentí un profunda admiración por tu belleza
estaba conmovido como si te conociera desde siempre.

El viento barría las nubes blancas del cielo
la ciudad perdía fuerza a cada instant...

And just like that.
Everything has changed.
Every chance gone.
Every moment, surrendered.

These winds carry me to unknown places
Surrounded by a sea of new faces
Never knowing what lies ahead of me
So lost in the dark that I cannot see
And still I will enter without regret
Without a moment to sit and reflect
Comforted while trapped in my confusion
Too confused to notice the illusion
became my home before my very eyes
Enticing me with this new state of mind
My walls erect were now only suspect
To come crashing down when I'd least expect
Granting me the facade of feeling free
Foreign to me lay truth, reality
While I was taking up residency
In what was no more than pure fantasy
