How I wish ,
I was my shadow
then, I only have to follow.
Need not worry when I fall
and It’d be okay to not stand tall.
For, a shadow is just a flattened cast
of something more complicated and vast
Two dimensional — devoid not just of height
but also of pain and emotional freight.
How I wish, I lived
in the world of shadows
where there is not any place for my sorrows
where there are not much details
for someone to pay attention to
How I wish I was the figure
at the other side of the mirror
I can escape wearing that little heart
that can often fall apart
would be destined to just be abstract
could get away aping my real counterpart
Jut have to smile when she smiles
and also copy her frown — I don’t
have to act on my own
and can also happily rest
till she comes back — to test
How I wish I was a mirage
that could give people hope
and make them smile,
even if, only for a little while?
How I wish we were
living the day dreams
of our creator
and not the nightmares?
I spawn dreams
where people are
genuine and kind,
joyful and contended,
earnest and empathetic.
I how i wish
the creator of all reality
was light hearted as me..
How i wish I could pause reality
and indulge in what is believed as fantasy?
