PRINCE IN WAITING

spinner.gif

no more can i resist you
no more can i pretend to you

 

subtle that my hints were
not that i was aware.

 

longing for your voice
wakes me up in dreams

 

telling me to call you
only to know its two.

 

this love that i have
existing like a corpse

 

beggar that it is
without your existence.

 

everytime i see you
brings it alive

 

pushing me within
to take you in my arms.

 

Stupid that i am
trying to jam

 

jammed that it is
wanting to find its way.

 

know that i am afraid
afraid to say what i am

 

but no more can i be
because its time to me

 

to put an end to my ordeal
is not in my hands,

 

loving unknowingly is all i can do
and i accept its true.

 

fallen that i have
on the ruins of love before

 

darkened are its stairs
leading up nowhere.

 

prince that i was
on this very ruins once

 

castle that it was
underneath my white horse

 

long that it has been
without a princess in pink

 

leading to its downfall
ruined castle that it is.

 

the key that you hold
to the castle within me

 

open my heart you princess
you are the one meant to be.

 

i know that we belong
to dynasties spread in time

 

nowhere that our kins have met
nor in love or war.

 

must'nt that be a point
which tears us apart

 

even the mughal akbar found her
jodha that she was

 

a conquerer that he was
from far away lands.

 

but in all his glory
fades that he at my castle.

 

because i am the true prince
out to conquer one.

 

many times has that one been
only to falter at the steps

 

proof of being a princess
is taken on the long gap

 

by making her walk
the long faltering steps.

 

the steps of my ruined castle
lead to the throne within

 

long is its spawn
upto the horizon of dawn.

 

let that be a walk
with you on my horse

 

because princess that you are
proven is your mettle

 

no walk that you need
to prove it better.

 

no more can you hold
the keys to my castle

 

my time is already cold
to have you in my castle.

 

come be my princess
oh you player

 

player that you are
on the fields of love.

 

get it sure this time
that wants me to be your prince

 

 this pathetic heart of mine
screaming from its veins;

"i love you"
