You are not here though
But a part of you
Is still in my heart
Yet whole of you
Will never really leave.

Crawl inside my skin
Leak within my heart
Tell me if there isn’t
Madness and chaos in me.

I throw our love
Across the sky
Watching the world to know
Where I have found you.

I burn for you
As severely as Sun burns
Till the relief of twilight.

May be,
We just found ourselves
As never before
At the wrong time,
And someday
Time will take us back
Together as before.
