HIGH HOPES

Sitting high on a hilltop I watched the cattle graze
Suddenly I saw her silhouette,but she vanished without a trace
I rushed downwards on my knees stumbling and falling
To my dismay I saw her with someone else and my heart was left wailing

She always told "You are my best friend"
Little did I realise that with girls this was always the trend
Fool I was to press on the matter
Because she had warned me - Someday your dreams would shatter

I landed up with a job and was really inspired
Little did I know that something had already transpired
I told her "I really love you"
She said do not tell all this as I was not even in the queue

"What the hell do you mean?"I shrieked
It was you and only you that I ever seeked
I put down the phone with a bang
Only to feel something shoot up like a pang

Today I try to find myself and feel all alone
She is far away from me in a world unknown
Someone said life is like a mountain with many slopes
Strange it is that at such a time I am listening to Pink Floyd's High Hopes

beats me a song we listen to passionately really determines the method we use to deal with situations
had i been in that situation i might have listened to
pink floyd's dark side of the moon

i am sorry to say that ... din mean to override ur privacy ... but its really irritating to read ur SHE - SHE poems ,that sound so good but i seriously wonder if they carry the meaning they r really meant to .... now u don tell me they are purely imaginat and comp hollow .... ll kick the ass outta you .... ya u do write poems pretty well ..so frm now on , open them up only to ur SHE . "SHE" ll be really glad !!!! ...... sariyaaaa?
