Beautiful Melancholy

Finding Lana Del Rey’s song
“Summertime Sadness” beautiful,
I spill my happiness.
My gates of misery
Are closed forever.
I have the spinning world
Under my feet.
The stars that miss the sun
Have awakened in the morning sky;
They are only unseen to your eyes.
My pure passionate heart
Has seen troubled arts
And have got drunk in
Their expressive happiness.
I get carried away by their
True expressions.
The cup of life,
Sugar-coated self
Is far untrue than a true sky
That pours melancholic rain.
Each time I turn the page
Love gets misread
In the unshared room of life.
I wait to dream again.
A drop of heaven
In liquefied and poured melancholy
Is what I read.
When the Himalaya misread my signs
I built a road to mount on it.
In shards of love, a poem
I shared wayback, I express
How melancholic a lover is
And at times how happy he is.
A mixture of imagination
And whistling wind
Carries the message of love
And scripts “Melancholic, but true.”
Freedom battles with melancholia
And reaches the soaring height of
Blue without pain.
