    With the rain pouring down

    Through the canopy over me

    My lashes being washed off by the tears


    Tears that I was holding back

    From the torments of life

    That whipped me all the time

    Making me a coward


    Making me go abhorrent towards my own emotions

    The world around seemed vain

    And the rooms of my life got cocooned with cold and pale thoughts

    Though standing in a crowd

    I felt as if I was left out


    I was just left out with a smile

    Which I used to fake for everyone around


    But one day I smiled out of no reason

    I found the reason was you


    Even the slightest thought of you

    Gave a curve to my lips

    Every word of yours

    Sent through me a chill


    Adding colours to my life

    You made me realise that I’m still Alive


    But suddenly there was a breeze

    I opened my eyes

    To the darkness around

    In the lightening

    The outline of the trees were still flashing


    Just like YOU added a silver lining to my Lifeless life

    Where I’d forgotten that I’m still Alive ……
