You Let Go


image

You let go of my hand
It was outstretched in the wind
As I stood on the desert sand
I couldnt lower my hand,
I couldnt let go of you
I was pushed and I was pulled
I was alone but in my own
The crowd was mean,
They hurt me
Still my hand, outstretched
Kept searching for solace
All I found were mean glances
Taunting and hurting
Strangers who were family
But acted far from it
Like the solid sun in the sky
Like the moon in the confines of the night
Like the lone cloud on a bright day
Like the last flower about to wither away
I stood among strangers, among family
Learning to live alone.
Forever alone
Echoes of my own voice
Drowned the mean, venomous cries
I stood alone with hand outstretched
Seeking comfort, seeking help
Looking for you, looking for myself.

Fade Away


Today, I decided to give up on you
This day, I let my hopes down
I gave up waiting for you
And from today, I will just fade away.
Today, I stopped counting on you
This day, I thought about me and the hurt I feel
I gave up looking out for you
From today, I finally decided to fade away

Like the wisp of smoke and mist make smog
The same way I will fade into the fog
I let you have your way till now
You never cared whether I stayed or not
Just empty words and all that lot
Foolish enough not to see it all
I walked behind you and held your ground
Now I may get selfish, I may think of my feeble soul
My endurance is gone and so is my longing
Futile it is to wait for you
Just doing myself a favour today
I will keep my dignity and just fade away.
