I’ve got many colours which attracted you,
And then we became friends - brand new.
We felt, getting closer would be a better choice.
All the unexpressed love started surfacing,
And all the friendship - secretly spoiling.
Being in love was a beautiful feeling,
As if - to love, Heavens were appealing.
With time, we became great lovers,
And you still loved all my colours!
Every new relationship has a new charm,
It’s only later that you realise the harm.
Within some time, this charm fades,
And the relationship changes its shades.
With time, as the relationship grows,
The jar of expectations overflows!
This is where every problem’s root lies,
Problems aren’t showered by the skies!
Now you wish to change all my colours and ways,
Has all that love and attraction faded away in days?
You wish to change me, to fulfil each of your expectation,
And where was this thought, while all that admiration?
I respect all your love and affection,
I also understand your feelings of possession.
I can change myself to certain extents,
But not so much, that challenges my existence.
I need to spread my wings,
Don’t bind them with strings.
It burns my heart in fires,
When you crush my desires!
Don’t forget the fact that I’m a butterfly,
And though not too high, but I need to fly.
Along with you, I’ll laugh and cry,
But in the cage of your fist, I’ll die!
