When You Came Into My Life

I was just a dead cubicle of ice hanging from the mountains; on the verge of breaking, with every passing draught of wind,
It was only when you came into my life; that I became a sparkling river; flowing boisterously down your slopes.

I was just a lifeless stone waiting to be kicked by the society on the road, staring hopelessly as swanky cars uncouthly trampled me with their wheels,
It was only when you came into my life; that I became a blossoming lotus; spreading my essence far and wide.

I was just a piece of garbage stashed miserably in some inconspicuous corner of the dungeon; nestled far away from the corridors of sunshine,
It was only when you came into my life; that I rose from the ashes; encompassed all tangible and intangible; in the swirl of my passionate flames.

I was just a bottle full of tears lying on the gloomy window sill; increasing in volume; as each second unfurled into a wholesome minute,
It was just when you came into my life; that I became the largest smile; imparting unprecedented happiness to whomsoever I encountered.

I was just a torn rag engulfed with dust hanging from the strings; with the holes in my body getting deeper every dawn,
It was just when you came into my life; that I became a pearl illuminating the darkness with my profound light.

I was just a worm traversing for mercy on the ground; taking shelter like a coward in the earth’s belly,
It was only when you came into my life; that I became a splendid bird; flew with rapid strides across the cosmos; breathing pure exhilaration from my beak.

I was just an impoverished leper begging incessantly on the streets; with the pangs of hunger reverberating in my stomach not being satisfied by the most delectable of meal,
It was only when you came into my life; that I became a king; and my heart throbbed violently with richness of your love.

I was just a commodity wandering around without any entity; with different people I met addressing me by different names,
It was only when you came into my life; that I made my impact felt; punctuated all sadness existing around me; with brilliant rays of hope.

And I was just a lifeless body entrenched in the coffin; simply inhaling air as I didn’t have the power to die; the power to close my eyes,
It was only when you came into my life; that I got a purpose to live; felt like I was just born; felt like on the pinnacle of the sky.
