The more I approach, the farther you seem to drift.
Even as I begin to retreat; you beckon me to come closer
I see you as an oasis, but you seem to be a mirage
Does the light around me cheat, promising visions that never existed;
Or is it my inner light that cease to fathom the beauty ahead;
My grip on the self seem to fade; I’m slipping away to the isolated solitude
Even when I’m away from you, your mind seems to conspire
To bring me back or despise;
Am unable to sense;
But; yeah something tells, it pulls, from the abyss of time,
I have to see the gifts ahead, I have to be responsible.
You sow the seeds of grit and might.
It seems like a death knell, tolling the death of the coward in me.
I hear, I wake up, the slumber seems to be of a distant past
Hazy dreams lead me to promises, yet to be fulfilled;
Promises with a purpose, with a goal to re-discover
The purpose, the prowess and I am made.
I wonder now why should I pretend or run away
If this is the love that awakens me to my duties, responsibilities and promises.
