You on that side
I stand on this side,
In between flows the river
River of man-made rules;
I can see you blushing
Seeing me occasionally,
Want to come to me
But afraid of the laws.

I am too afraid
Too petrified by results,
But love for you in heart
Strengthens my will;
Made a boat of compromise
The river breaks it,
Made a bridge of plead
The river rejects it.

Down and out I am
As I decide to swim across,
Breaking all the rules
Countering all of them;
Reached your bank
Hoping for your hand,
But you again refrain
As I drown smiling at you.
