Some were punished for being patriots,
Others for humanity,
Losers were robbed off their dignity,
Winners! lost sanity. . .
A father, a son, a brother died in the battle;
Ask that girl on the other side of the border. . .
How was your lover. . . ! I bet she has met the beast. . .
Off her soul they had a feast. . .
On the either side of the border –
Everyonelost their battle once the war was over.
Happy last Night
They said happiness spreads when you share,
I guess they were right. . .
Tears roll out when you sing lullaby to yourself –
passing by the midnight.
pain often gets multiplied by loneliness. . .
And smile struggles to be bright. . .
O my love I am bit drunk today. . . had a little too lot of wine,
Please tell me we didn’t fight. . .
The dead roses remind me I was happy. . .
Very happy. . . very happy and lonely last night.
Staring at the ceiling I often try to paint her face on,
Till a blurry shape appears I find the night has already gone. . .
Long gone o long gone my another sleepless night,
Those dark circles fail to pretend,
Fail to hold on to my plight. . .
