Fairy Tales

You don’t have to..!!

Glowing embers in my eyes designed dreams for you…
You don’t have to see them too,
You don’t have to stay back watching them..!!!

Are you real to me…?
You don’t have to say that to anyone,
You don’t have to recite the stories either…!!!

Between me and you…
You don’t have to perceive the murmuring,
You don’t have to sing along…!!!

Only..! To walk behind
You don’t have to seek permission,
You don’t have to look behind…!!!

Without meeting my eyes, do you see me…?
Can you even hear a word I say…?

Feeling moist eyes, are they tears…?
My longing, is that for you…?
Every bit the pain lingers, I stick close to the soul of this song,
You don't have to know all that,
You need to know nothing,

But I’ll even sing… this is my song… always my own…!!!
