Eyes that do not lie

I was good at it

But now I’m getting worse,

Although I’m catching up

I’m trying to rehearse,

There’s a world hidden 

Behind those eyes,

A world that can be seen 

Only through those brown eyes,

They hide a secret 

A secret so deep,

That it’s hard to find

Harder to reach

But I will find it,

And I will find you 

Only then I will be content,

Coz I’ll be around you

Those pretty lips 

Are tightly zipped 

No feelings to share,

No person to spare 

There’s nothing else I long to achieve, 

But you time and company 

A little chit chat 

A little this and that

And I will have,

Everything I would ever need

The lady in white

Her smile is worth the struggle

Her eyes shines like glitter

Everything she touches

Comes to life

She is worth the wait

She makes me alive

We haven’t met 

Yet her presence astounds me

I wonder how I would react 

When she will be around me

She has turned my world upside down 

Can’t even tell, if I’m right or wrong

But I’m ready,

To take a leap of faith 

And see, what lies ahead 

Will I be a part of her life 

Or will I be another phase 

That passes by 

It’s all destiny, they say 

It all happens for good, they say

®JasdeepKukreja

Mismatch 

It was a coincidence 

That we met 

Our paths crossed for good 

I do not regret  

You and me jelled up 

Like bread and butter 

And things got better when we met 

For the first time 

It felt good 

After a long time 

I can be me,

When you are around me

You made me change the way i think

And you did it for my good

Filled my soul with positivity 

In a way I couldnt explore

You changed my thinking 

With so much patience

And I have no way 

To thank you with

So I quote a few lines 

Because I am good at it

May you get what you long

That all I would wish for

May your dreams come true 

And everything good happens to you 

May you plans go smoothly 

The way they should 

Dead man’s poetry 

I’m in a darker place

Somewhere I can’t be chased

Training myself 

Not to feel anymore 

The memories of you 

Have left me sore

I was angry 

I was annoyed 

Coz you were not there 

By my side

You were not there

When I needed you 

You were there 

When you wanted to 

I live today 

I might be gone by tomorrow 

Will you stay with me 

In my happiness and sorrow 

Can I count on you

Will you be there

Should I move on 

I cannot say

So live in the moment 

Live until it lasts 

Live in the present 

And forget about the past 

You were there with me 

Yet I felt alone 

So let’s cut through the chase 

And forget and move on

Unanswered feelings Vol. 2

To be, or not to be

That is the question 

That still haunts me 

I know we would drift apart 

I know this would not last

Still I want to make the most of it

All I need is a hug and a kiss

All I want is someone to take care of me

All I need is a heart to share with me 

But what I want is not what I got 

Cause you were too scared to believe 

For the first time 

It felt right 

I thought I found the one 

Whom I would call mine 

For the first time 

I felt a good vibe 

You were like the missing piece to my jigsaw 

Finally I could set it up right

You had your reasons 

I had mine 

You could not give in yourself 

Without you nothing felt right 

My feelings are still unanswered 

You were away from me, that bothered 

I love the way you look at me 

Even in a crowded place 

You find me 

I wish I could heal you 

By casting a spell 

You too cannot live without me

I can tell 

I know it is the past 

Where our hearts reside 

But all I ask if for you comfort 

By my side

A person like you 

Is hard to come by 

So hold my hand 

And let us give it another try

Unanswered feelings 

To be, or not to be

That is the question 

That haunts me

It’s such a shame 

That things are not the same 

Love was a feeling once 

Now it is just a game 

Should I step up 

Or should I lean back 

Should I remain this way 

I cannot understand 

Should I start 

Or should I end this feeling 

I feel vulnerable 

When it comes to dealing 

I don’t wanna remember you like an end 

I don’t wanna give it a name 

If nameless, can it last 

Will we be able to sustain 

Should I or should I not 

The question still remains 

Is it a dream 

Or is it reality 

Should I wake up 

Or should I choose morality

It’s never been the same

He called her up 

On a sudden night 

Wanting to know 

If she was alright 

She talked as if she was fine 

She pretended to be normal 

And talked 

As if she wanna talk all night 

Hours went by 

But the conversations didn’t last 

There were matters 

Digging out from the past 

Both acted normal 

As if they didn’t care 

But within they died 

For each other’s share 

Then her lover called 

And she had to go 

She said,” I’ll Talk to you later ”

But he knew she won’t show 

He said good bye 

And waited for her to drop

But within he still hoped 

For the convention to not stop 

It’s been months 

Since he heard her voice 

It was like melody to him 

Full of joy

He relived when they talked 

And died when she dropped 

He still hoped for her call 

A hope that was meant to fall 

She said,”we don’t have a future together”

He said that he didn’t care 

All he wanted was her happiness 

And everything else was spared 

Now the question lies 

Why did he call? 

What did he want? 

Was it worth calling?

What did he get from it all? 

Because she was his first 

And that’s what made it worse 

He couldn’t get her out of her head 

No matter what he did to let loose 

He drank he smoked 

He did it all 

He tried everything 

To get her out 

Get her out of his system 

By her memories corrupted his firewall 

He was like a computer 

Underrated and slow 

And you know

What happens to old computers 

They are replaced with 

Something new 

It’s such a shame 

That he’s still the same 

While everything around him underwent a change 

He just couldn’t adapt to that change

The world through my eyes! 

I want you to see 

What it’s like to be me

I want you to see

The world through my eyes 

I want you to see 

What is hidden behind that smile

I want you to see

What it’s like to be me 

I want you to see me 

Standing on the street 

I look at you 

And you look back at me 

The world is a sweet misery 

And we are just human beings 

I can go on to win it all

As long as you are with me 

You got my attention 

You got my piece of mind 

Now all I ask 

Is you to be mine 

You just need to trust me 

As I have always trusted thee

You just have to hold on to me 

And I’ll show you 

What it is like to be me 

®JasdeepKukreja  

Let go

Things are not the same 

As they used to 

We don’t talk 

Like we used to 

More like strangers 

Rather friends 

There’s nothing left to say

We are filled with emptiness 

Now I won’t be taken for granted 

As now my feelings are ranted

I have some reviews for thee 

You are bad news to me 

So let me go 

And let me live 

If I’ve done something wrong to you 

I hope you will forgive 

Let me go 

Let me fly 

You and I 

Are no more allies 

®Jasdeep Kukreja

Wanderlust 

Last night I saw you in my dream

Now I can’t wait to go to sleep

A dream where there was just you and me 

Running on the sand, by the sea

The sky was yellow 

Our hearts were mellow 

The atmosphere was filled with 

Nothing but love

There’s an energy I felt

When you touched me 

When you held me

It was so powerful 

Girl you are my reflection 

And all I see is you 

My reflection 

In everything I do

All I will do 

Is wait for you 

To look into your eyes 

And make you mine
