I stood wide eyed and gazed around,
you seemed so far away..
Woebegone,I closed my eyes
and I found you within my own self ,
in my heart and all over my mind.
I have used you as crutches, I have used you as my shield
I hid behind your thick foliage, in hope and in despair,
I expressed love, I conveyed detest
For shaping my thoughts my words, I thank thee..
Could never imagine in the wildest of dreams,
my world without you and your quaint twine
Lost in oblivion,I did stand perplexed,
in the complex maze of my own words enmeshed.
Until ,lies and deceit, became ,but just a shade of the truth
They looked like truth and they did pass as one.
But you stood right beside and never failed me.
In your victory my words, I came second to none.
