“At one magical instant in your early childhood, the page of a book—that string of confused, alien ciphers—shivered into meaning. Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; at that moment, whole universes opened. You became, irrevocably, a reader.” –Alberto Manguel

3 Minutes

I remember when you walked in with your guitar;
I tried reaching you but you were standing too far,
I tried screaming your name;
but I was afraid that it could be the end of this game.

I locked my eyes at you and you fake me a smile;
I sigh and lost my mind for a while,
I turned my eyes off hiding my shame;
and got lost to decide whom to blame?

At the end of the day you said goodbye;
boy; it was so hard to leave and I sigh,
I can’t forget those 3 minutes when you came;
against my will I am going home again.

Now you are a part of my every dream;
soon you’ll conquer my realm,
what do I do with my heart?
I can’t go back to the start.

I look for you every time, and I try to work;
but every time I fail and I feel like jerk,
and I just can’t stop to keep myself from thinking of you;
and the tragedy is that you have no clue.

But I love it when you pass next through me;
I feel butterflies and you just can’t see,
I can’t forget those 3 minutes when you came;
against my will I am going home again.

  2. nicely done, just one question. based on an actual event?

  3. Shreya,

    Lovelorn expressing self so well.

  4. Well said - you make it effortless to read. Was it like that to write?

  5. Perhaps it was effortless to read in the rhythm like Carolina says, but I really doubt it was easy to write, if it's real, and insomnia doesn't help the cause anyways.

  6. Aww! That was a very lovely writing!

  7. Just followed you, follow me back at http://mommaladybug.typepad.com/my-blog/ :)
