About lies you told and heard
About right decisions and wrong times,
About outright NOs and painful YESs
About stolen pens and looted memories
About chits in the class and silence in the walks,
About newspapers and red inks.
Tonight, it’s about wars. And cries.
About preaching mom not to talk like that,
About feeling guilty for talking like that,
About stained pants and washed agony,
About withered walls and bright pictures.
About compass boxes and kitchen sets
And monsters in clouds, and a white dress.
Tonight, it’s about yesterday. And beyond.
About teary blurs and clear paths,
About stubborn keyboards and blocked contacts,
About rains and parched hearts
About drafts in the mail and updated Instagram.
And earrings, and short hair and long kurtis
About everything out of league.
Tonight, it’s about me. And stars.
