By Arjun Dahal

Yes dear, I was positively nonsense. A complete perfection of stupidness. But all those deeds, I had done, Was just to come close enough of you. Your love heals me, Your sweet smile changes the course of my day, But you never looked back again. May be that's why, My heart tends to cry. May be that's the reason, My eyes have not yet dried.   I wasn't perfect, I knew. Neither I was any of your superheroes. I was just your follower, And your joker. May be that's why, You were always happy with me. May be that's the reason, You always wanted to see me serious.   You are in my dreams everyday, Thus, more lunatic I become. Yet, I'm happy, Because at least in my dreams, you're with me. Maybe that's why, I always speak in my sleep. Maybe that's the reason, I feel so lazy to wake up.   Even my bad luck is unlucky, I know. The closer I try to approach you, The distance increases the further. The more I try to impress, The more it makes you depress. May be that's why, When I call your number, the network becomes busy. May be that's the reason, When I think of you, the weather changes and teases me to write.   But dear, whatever may be the rest. I shall always try to be at my best. I've missed you everywhere I have been, For all I want is to love you again. I have got many reasons to live, But you're the only reason I want to keep.
