The curtain is slowly closing, wrapping up this phase. The crowd is still clapping, right time to leave the stage. We both know the story is ending, playing our parts but just pretending. The love is already gone, it’s no use faking what we are not feeling. As I say the last line of this beautiful love story, pain is pricking every inch of my soul. As I say the words we both dread to hear, my heart is shattered to the core.

THEY live today, worrying about tomorrow, Living in pain, their hearts are torn with sorrow. All seems dark, pain paints their emotions, Paralleled to satisfaction, by lack; only tasting it in microscopic proportions.   They have no home, know no shelter, Living all alone, wishing for a helper. Unlike deserts, their eyes are ever wet- with tears, Their potential minds suppressed in a corner of fears.

The King in me savours the days I spend in the city of gold. I am living a life of endless luxuries; my life will definitely be told. I swim in pools of pride saying goodbye to my past. My glass is always filled to the brim with lust.
