TAKE ME BACK.

"The primary switched mode of life is love and secondary turns to be Pain".

tAKE ME bACK
when reflections of green shone and signs of withering was a nightmare,
when roots were deep enough and laughter profound in us,
the flowers were lively and flourished all round in a show of a merry future,
the times when the self in me lived and my existence was in fullness,
cos for now, the self i have is torn and void , emptiness i cant avoid. All my senses are stale, senseless and devoid,
*****
tAKE ME bACK,
When dreams and visions stood with meanings,
when my steps had a destination and my days were not tamed with darkness,
days to come were fully illuminated,
*****
tAKE ME bACK,
When you whispered mornings and sunrises were full of glance,
The times your smile meant hope and your sound meant trust,
the times you meant your tongue and your thoughts spoke goodness,
and your voice could sound good and soothing to my ears
