I wanna redeem myself in your eyes…

I know I’m that little speck of dust you don’t want to pay attention to,
I’m someone who has ceased to matter to you, for I see you brush thoughts of me off your shoulder, in incoherent rue,

I am now a stranger to you, blithering amidst a score of people you don’t know, in town,
Whose presence doesn’t anymore, make a difference too profound,
Who is but an incoherent mass of flesh and bones, who carries with her memories of the past with emotions and hue,

Yet, I want to redeem myself in your eyes, oh yes, even if my existence doesn’t mean anything to you,

Because, you haunt me in my dreams, dreams that I don’t have to close my eyes to see,
You inspire me to break barriers and boundaries and my lingering complacency,

You induce me to fill my skies with vibrant shades of sunshine and happiness and rainbows and silvery dew,
You give me reasons to stay alive, you give me something to fight for and prove, you give me hope and mornings, to look forward to,

You make me to want to turn heads, you push me to go after what my heart seeks to pursue,

I want to redeem myself in your eyes, just so you begin to think of me like I do, of you.

I hoard books for a living. And read them too, when I am not sleeping. I express what I think, so my unheard feelings don't sink. I like to sing when I walk, to keep shades grey, at bay. I speak like a dork, but I don't want to drive anyone away. I write what's real, and nothing fake, so visit my blog whenever you need a break ;)

  1. Beautiful write Annu.. But, i wouldn’t read a few words as it in merging with the title and your pic.
    1st para 2nd line after the word “shoulder” the rest words are not visible.
    2nd para 3rd line after the word past with.
    5th para 1st line after the word silvery & 2nd line hope and the rest words are not visible.
    Could you please put those words in the next line as i would like to read it again?

    Thanks in advance. ๐Ÿ™‚
