I am Drenched

Droplets pour in

Over a period of time

From here and there

Past and present

From no one else

Who I thought were mine

I endured for them

Passion and rage

I walked that thin line

I soaked in all of it

Sponge has a huge space

Never said a word

But for God’s sake

Let me say once

I am cold

Oh Lord let me say it

Just for once

Once and never again

I am drenched

Oh lord, I am drenched!!

I walked the path

Just like everyone

I feel now tired

I am overwhelmed

I whimper, I cry

Tears roll down

I am a human

But they say

I am a man

I can’t be drenched

I must not say it

I am drenched!

Never said a word

But for God’s sake

Let me say once

I am cold

Oh Lord let me say

Just for once

Once and never again

I am drenched

Oh lord, I am drenched!!

I did what I had to

I was brave

I renounced, I ostracised

I was an armour without a chink

It wasn’t you who led me

I led us to a place

Where I braved a beautiful face

I played it all

My symphony needs cadence

Never said a word

But for God’s sake

Let me say once

I am cold

Oh Lord let me say

Just for once

Once and never again

I am drenched

Oh lord, I am drenched!!

I thought I ran for a reason

What a mockery

People clapped for a different reason

It wasn’t me

I know I ran for right reason

It’s just that

The medals they make are spurious

I could not foresee

Why the hell

Was I not enough curious?

Never said a word

But for God’s sake

Let me say once

I am cold

Oh Lord let me say

Just for once

Once and never again

I am drenched

Oh lord, I am drenched!!
