I wish I had the key that could unlock the secrets
I wish you could love me enough to pass that on to me
The key that would open the enigmas of your heart
The mysteries that lie deep down, drowned, distorted
The key that can shatter the glass barrier between us
To unravel, to share, to feel liberated, to enter the peace zone
I yearn to turn that key and be locked in that zone
I wouldn’t whine even if it got left behind, hanging outside
I know my own ways of stepping out, if you hold my hand
I know the weary wedges are growing deeper, darker
Every effort ends in the same circuitous corridor
Your clandestine charades coerce me out of your life
This is my last cogent entreaty to accentuate my wishes…
To soften your acrimonious attitude
To understand the gravity of growing animosity
To unearth another opportunity of building bridges
To love and be loved, to assimilate austere emotions
Which are still around us, locked in our hearts.

I am travelling and you might see me missing from social media for a few days. I’ll try to peep in whenever possible. Thanks.
