I will never return again

I have left that corner,

i used to frequent daily,

and the rest of the day,

that corner stayed in my heart.

I have left the sunlit, dreamy path

leading to the corner,

I used to wait by,

and the rest of the day,

the wait for that corner,

lingered in my heart.

I have left that corner far behind,

where, like the promised ray of light

i touched you every day

I have left that corner,

far behind.

I have kept in my heart bitter sweet tastes

of your words,

I have kept in a knot

some beautiful nights of wait.

I have in my smile the brightness of

those lovely days.

I have held tight the rope of the new day

I have left that corner behind

where like on canvas

you left few colors on my face.

On that corner,

one day,

your colors were not enough.

i wiped them of my face,

I stil carry those wiped colors

on my hand though,

but i will never return again.

Don't look at me..

my whispers will reach your


Don't you worry.

Every time your eyes

heave a sigh,

and want to look at me,

ill be there,

i will hold your hand,

I will smile back at you,

i will fold my voice in neat folds

and send it your way.

but hold your breath

don't look at me.

I can't stop thinking about the darkness

in which you hide your face.

Your thoughts keep my room alight

even in the darkest hour of the night.


your presence makes me smile,


don't look at me,

don't look into my eyes.

If you must,

soak my glow,

let me just look away,

my eyes burn

and still cannot light your darkness,

consumed by longing,

they are ablaze.

Then let me pretend,

I am shy, if you insist to look at me,

and let me look away,

if i cannot light your place...

imagining your gaze

troubles me in here...

Don't look,

till I can look into your eyes.
