Star-crossed Lovers

Star-crossed Lovers

If a tear could 
carry oceans,

If a heart could 
have a tongue,

If to a rise would 
be a demotion,

If two rights could 
make a wrong.. 

The venomous 
damps exhaled
so feebly, 

have deluged, 
scarred and
marred 
me, 

So much so, 

that the vows
hopes and
dreams, 

I kept inside, 

have disbanded  
inside the malice
of its rigour, 

A liquified glum has 
remained where 
once was a 
beloved, 

I have become
restrained for all 
I unfeignedly
loved, 

None of the oceans
I’ve wept could 
testify, 

against the unjustly
trial wherein 
my love was 
defied, 

Fought to be heard, 
I prayed and 
wailed 

Yet, 
a final decision 
much other
entailed..

'Oh you unworthy! 

I forbid you to act
against the tides 
of life, 

To deny the
rules that sprout 
from its devise, 

Recluse yourself 
and rest your
tedious case,

Tuck your wounds
into the blanket 
of your banes, 

Oh you convicted one! 

Enfold your 
weary heart,
send it away, 

You won’t need 
it anymore, 

For it’s now deemed 
the sole part of 
you extant 
in vain

...

Any last words
from the detained?'

Milord,

One day this world
will comprehend,

that if pride & unjust
can turn a sea
into sand, 

then it shall only
be true lovers..

who will dare to 
grow flowers
in that cursed, 
desolated
land

सईयारा में सईयारा, सईयारा तू सईयारा
      सितारो के जहाँ में अब मिलेंगे अब यारा
A planet, I am now. A planet you are. We shall meet again between the stars. 
- From the song

NB: recommend watching the video, but I added an instrumental of the song too.
NB: fun fact: I posted this unaware of the full flower blue moon last night. Guess the stars were aligned lol

Whenever you drop a tear
grows the light of letter
sad, sorrows, whatever
blooms in you a flower

Sounds very much like a dialogue that could be performed on a stage. It's very intricate and fascinating. I'd love to see that, and even direct something like that :)
