Cold Hearted!

Waiting for you to return from the dead…

And I advised you to smile more

As usual, only silence prevailed

Status changed that very minute

‘Cold Hearted!’ it declaimed

Wasn’t a surprise to me after all

I guess I’ve seen enough, big and small

Or so I think, to myself I told

Maybe it was all a delusion

All the stories you believed to me you sold

In your hollow eyes, answers I now seek

I know to you it all just seems too weak

My questions still unrequited

My efforts, yet again vanquished

Although every day we do meet

Encounters aren’t exactly either sour or sweet

I now recollect the time past

You had warned me, it wasn’t gonna last

But, Coldness in you I cannot recall

You always responded to my every call

With warmth and care, me, you did spoil

I found peace in you, in this turmoil

That time, as I now reminisce

All our chats that I still cherish,

Silly debates, deep conversations,

Funny innuendos and more…

Your gentle words I now so miss

It’s all the same yet totally different

It just all now feels amiss

My heart breaks to see you this way

Are you sure aloof you’re going to stay?

From your decision you aren’t going to sway?

Glimpses of our time together run by me

Blurred although now is my memory

I’m waiting for you to help me revive

I’m waiting to see your ‘real’ smile!
