I know I shouldn’t

I know that we’re just delaying the inevitable, and that you’ll have to leave soon. I know that I should be ready and prepared and used to it, by now. But I still feel like the air has been sucked out of my lungs at the very mention of you going away. I know that…

A forever with you

Your hand in mine, my head on your shoulder, your other arm on my waist, holding me close to you. The light just enough to light up your face, at this beautiful break of dawn, that’s bearing the witness to something so special between us. No amount of time feels enough, when spent with you….

Immune to Love

I thought I was immune to these feelings that I now feel. I thought I had everything that I need, but now I have you. And it’s now that I have you, that I realize what I was missing out on. Knowing that I have you with me, makes me feel so strong and complete….

You’re all you need

When it gets dark, be the light who lights up the room. When you start feeling detached, be the person who would hold you tight, through it all. When you start feeling doubtful, be the person who can love you with all your scars. When it gets overwhelming, be the person who lights up the…

Sonali’s dream — Whispers of a poet’s heart

If only I could slide Between folds of time Without disturbing anyone Nor be disturbed myself Just long enough and until I could see, to know where I best fit into lives of strangers Friends and family and love So I could slip on my true skin Step out of my sorts as… just me. […]…

What if?

What if I open my heart up to you? Would you embrace it, or would you demolish the leftover pieces, just like everyone else did? Would you accept its faults and insecurities, along with its kindness and compassion, or would you take advantage of its innocence, and then leave me to fend for myself? Would…

Let’s just stay together

Let’s get high and never come back down. Let’s go climb that mountain which I can see from my window, and carve our names out, on the bark of the tallest tree, with a heart around it. Let’s go out on a walk on roads with canopy, and take the long way back, and talk…

White Knight

You’re not my white knight in a shining armor. I thought it was you, but you’re not. I was wrong. You’re just the person whom I love, unconditionally, even though you never come to my rescue. You’re the one , whom I expect nothing from. You’re the one who can hurt me, over and over…

I felt you

I was walking down a lane the other day, similar to the one where I was with you. All the memories came crashing down on me, and I swear, I felt you there, with me. I could actually feel your hands in mine, I could actually hear you speaking to me. I know that you’re…

I saw you yesterday

I saw you yesterday, in that black shirt that I’ve always loved on you. You looked as beautiful as ever, not sure if I can say the same for myself. Just a sight of you made me go weak in my knees. Just a glance at you made me feel something that I didn’t even…
