Beautiful loneliness

I look out of my window
Mellowly into the far sky
I am happy for there is no one to disturb me
In a hostel so full of lonely melancholies

The horizon is like a bright orange
With shades of pinked hue
Hills on other end seem like a mirage
And I keep gazing as if stuck with glue

The birds are flying back in groups
But to me they seem like a bunch of elegant shadows
The lights across the roads have started flickering
And as the darkness takes over the little squirrels start quivering

Down the lanes and the small patch of neatly cut grasses
I see people walking to the tunes of their life
There are both the old and the young
Accompanied by women and children big and small

While the old, stroll spreading calmness all around
And the couples saunter, creating an aroma of romance and synergy
A young men few take strides burning their calories and pound
As the small children hop around disseminating energy

Slowly I could see none of it
Only their sounds and energy traveled across me
And as the sun set on the distance so far
Those flickering lights took over the hued sky

Suddenly I hear a commotion on my floor
With people coming back to the hostel
And I am forced to come out of that beautiful moment
With a loud knock on my door

It took me an year to realize the beauty around
But i am happy to have felt it today; and as I opened the door of my room
I realized that sometimes loneliness brings us closer
And intimate to a lot of other beautiful things around

SPOOF!

I look out of my Windows™!
mellowly into the far bugs and loopholes!!
I am happy it is not even close to a Mac™!
In a market full of lonelyness(no one to buy it now)!!

The horizon is bright orange
with shades of pinked hue!
This is how i give a metrosexual clue!!
Hills on other end seem like a mirage!
and i keep gazing them like a dumb ass giraaf!!

The birds are flying back in groups!
i wondor why dont they use Google groups™!!
The lights across the roads have started flickering!
or is it me branding Yahoo Flickr™(ing)!!

Down the lanes and the small patch of neatly cut grasses!
I wonder did somebody started pappu™ mundan classes!!
I see people walking to he tunes of thier life!
loosers! they need a IPod™ upgade in their life!!

A young men few take strides burning their calories and pound!
at 22 do i need to think about my belly pounds!!
As the small children hop around disseminating energy!
All i need is some Redbull™ energy!

Suddenly I hear a commotion on my floor!
With people coming back us oor se is oor!!
I realized that sometimes loneliness brings us closer!
And intimate to a lot of other beautiful juniors around!!
