Don’t try to read me Just from the things I write There is a fair chance I fabricated them, With figments of imagination To let out my creative streaks Or a proud attempt to create a masterpiece! Don’t try to read me Just from the media clips I post, Like the photographs, lets say They are souvenirs of moments Not of life ! Don’t try to read me Just from what I say, Words may lie To camouflage bitter truths Or could even be white lies Said with the noblest of intentions To save situations or build better relations ! What you see on the surface, are pointers, To vouch for the signboards You need make an attempt to reach out, And not miss the woods For the enormity of the trees! To read me right Look into the eyes ‘Cos they never lie. Listen to the unspoken words Uttered loud and clear, In the silence of the times , And in the whispers of the heart!
