And there I saw the perfect bed.
Just the perfect size, height width everything I could have dreamt.
I imagined the perfect sleep in my perfect bed.
Never quite seeing home the same again.
It came equipped with sheets and blankets even a heated mattress.
This bed was better than anything I could have imagined.
I climbed her leg and slipped myself in her pocket.
I haven't slept this good in a long while
love at first sight
as not something
that she could believe in,
being able to fall for someone
just by looking at them
seemed too unlikely,
a ridiculous thought
that people over exaggerated in movies
and some people
were too naive
to buy it
when she saw him
for the first time,
it wasn't love,
but there was definitely a spark
I was caught off guard by the everlasting effect of your smile.
In all honesty I thought I was prepared for the well placed explosion that took place in my heart.
In actuality, I was not.
Absent minded to the total embodiment that was you.
The coming of your lips,
The taste of your stare.
I did not know the effect your voice would have on me.
There wasn't a prayer that could have prepared me for you.
There was nothing left of what my heart use to be.
The occurrence of everything obliterated; Emptied.
The horizon filled by your silhouette; my hands lost in the light cast
by the radiance of your smile.
I was reduced to nothingness in the blink of an eye by a single look cast from
The stare of your eye.
The total sound of nothingness filled my heart with a peaceful hush
after the destruction you've caused with just a single look.
To the girl I will never see again,
I didn't even get your name, but I feel so certain it was beautiful.
You were tiny and angelic, but in no way fragile.
You had a smile that lit up the entire concert even when the lights were dim.
I am grateful to have met you, if only for one evening.
You barely came up to my shoulder, and I am in no way tall,
But somehow, you still seemed stronger than anyone else there.
Your makeup was perfect, when I was entirely drenched in other people's sweat.
Every time you could tell I was scared, you pulled me out of the pit.
Whenever a guy was getting a little too close to me, you pulled me away instantaneously.
You made sure if anyone had water, that I got a sip.
You cared, but why?
Why in the world would you have picked me of all people to make sure I was safe all night?
This was both of our favorite bands,
But you made sure I did more than survive the night.
You made sure I was happy the whole way through.
The lights reflected on your bright red hair,
Reminding me why we associate red with love.
I don't believe in love at first sight.
But I believe that you cared about me.
And I don't know why.
But I surely care about you too.
I wish you hadn't have gotten lost in a sea of people during the encore.
I wish I had gotten your name.
I wish I had gotten to know you.
May we cross paths again, my "For One Night Only" friend.
I can't help but believe,
that where the first time I'd meet those sparkly eyes,
it would be Inevitable to where we'd be standing now.
I don't know what hurts more,
not having you,
or the memories that taunt me.
I was screwed,
knowing you or not knowing you.

This morning will be a different one, for he will meet a girl
With an auburn eyes, a winsome smile and a hair that is curl
Strange she is, but in a beautiful kind of strange
The boy will stop and stare, will be lost in her haunting sad eyes
She will not notice, and will never knew, that cupid has
shot the boys young heart
The boy found a reason to go out every morning
To see her again, he was hoping
For her smile becomes the sun that brightens his day
He will sit from afar, and with an admiring eyes, just watch her
She paints, she reads, and sometimes plays with her dog's fur
He will silently watch and enjoy the beautiful scenario
It goes for almost a week
"I must be crazy, why do I stalk this chic?"
But he doesn't know the answer
All he know is, the girl brings peace to his heart
Her eyes and smiles are a piece of a pure art
and her laughs are a song to his ears
He could not explain it, watching her makes him happy
and sends a warm chill to his heart, very fancy
"I need to know her name"
The next day, the boy waited in vain
But the girl never came
"I'll wait again tomorrow"
It's been a week, but she never showed up again
In his chest a sadness and pain
Could not accept, she looked for the girl
He found out that the girl loves to paint
But the smell of the chemical will cause her to faint
That's why she sneaks out and do it once in a while
He found out that the girl loves reading
But her eyes failed her, every letters are dancing
That's why she sneaks out and pretends to read
He also found out that her hair was just a wig
And her red lipstick was to hide her pale lips
And finally he found out her name
With a sound of a breaking heart
He reads her name
On her graveyard
I wake up in the morning and see the sun saying hello
I go downstairs and am stopped by an odd fellow
He wore a green hat and carried a cello
He certainly was an odd little fellow
He stopped me and said “Do you want to follow your dreams?”
A little shy I squeaked “uh well, Sure please”
He led me down the hallway and right out the door
Looked back at me with a display and asked “what are you waiting for?”
I shrugged my shoulders with dismay and followed closely behind
He kept right on running I followed suit in kind
He led me to a castle that stood up straight and bold
He looked at me and pointed at it while demanding “Don’t you now fold;
The answers to all your dreams is up there waiting inside
The place is falling at the seams, no time to swallow pride”
So with a leap and a bound I found myself in the castle
Searching far and wide certainly was a hassle
I walked up to a fireplace and saw a burning stew
I turned around to look and who I saw, was you
You stared at me with a challenge, blue eyes boring holes
I stared right back unable to move from those striking blues
You asked what I had come for
I honestly said, “No clue,
Though if I’d take a guess, I’d say I came for you”
That quip made your eyes lose their stony glare
And if I had the confidence I’d swear I saw a sparkle there
You invited me to sit, and we talked for a long while
I impressed you with my wit and even got a smile
It came time for me to leave, so I made to bid adieu
You reached out and grabbed my arm, “life is far better with two”
I was a little taken aback, had I been too far forward?
This woman knew my inner thoughts, perhaps clear-sighted?
I wanted to agree with you, but I lived far from here
It seemed you knew again and said, “Will you take me there?”
My shock must have shown for you shrunk back like I hurt you
“Did I assume too much?” you asked with hesitation
“That all depends” I said with sly smile “do you like blue?”
You smiled again, glowing with confidence, as you leaned forward and said “of course I do”
This time I smiled back, and linked your arm with mine
We walked out of the castle and passed the fellow, now drinking wine
He looked up with a glance and then jumped back with a dance
Shouting for joy at the sight
He grabbed his cello
Before he could mellow
And sang with all of his might
“oh happy days you found your dream
It has all come true to be
For you found her and she found thee
So happy to be!”
We danced with the fellow
While playing his cello
And moved about all through the night
My hand in your hand
And your eyes on mine
Nothing has ever felt more right
Like the fellow had sung
So happy to be
Right then and there
Just you and me
The very first time we met,
There was a garden full of orchid beds,
not in there, but in my head;
part be of your graceful pace,
part be of your gentle face,
As we talked and clasped our hands,
I felt your warmth, and I knew then,
what I did and what was yet to be,
has no say; clearly.
You took my heart and made me see,
My life with you, was meant to be,
As we join our hearts; in twined.
Please be mine till the end of time.
A love story till now untold
It was beginning of spring, but that day was a bit cold
The day had just ended, it was the night
Only whispers could be heard, in the twinkling star's light
Among the lands of life, a boy wandered
He was there because at home he blundered
He was just walking with some thought
The meaning of his life, he wanted to sought
He didn't cared for anything else, kept on to walk
There was no one in his life, to whom his feelings he can talk
No one was his, he was forever alone
He was quiet, still inside his heart was a cyclone
He was present there but his head was in another world
He felt he was a demon, unleashed from underworld
He was the sailor,in the seas he was lost
He never thought they exist, but with an angel his path crossed
His eyes were down, so coming person he never saw
He banged with a girl, it was indeed his flaw
The girl was lost in her world too, it was her mistake as well
Both lost their balance, on the ground they fell
He looked towards the girl, couldn't believe his eyes
Wondered if he was in sleep, dreams showing him such beautiful lies
He saw a girl, most beautiful of them all
She was smiling, her smile touched his soul
Smile forming an arc, like they were a crescent moon
Her lips were so sensual, they made him swoon
Her eyes, dark brown in color and so deep
He shook his head wondering again if he were asleep
Her shining face, glowing with her light
Her hair so gorgeous, darker than the night
He was just sitting there, held by his trance
On that beautiful girl, he kept his glance
The girl was no different, at boy she gazed upon
Like a magnet, to each other, they got drawn
After a moment, the girl stood
The boy asked "I'm sorry, all good?"
The girl gave him a nod, in a quiet way
They both were mesmerized, they had nothing to say
The boy was still on the ground
He gazed upon the girl, didn't even tried to see around
The girl raised her hand, to give to the boy
No one gave him hand ever, he was filled with joy
He grabbed her hand, quickly without a second thought
The happiness stormed inside him, and that happiness was a lot
He stood up and they both were then face to face
Without thinking he just gave her a hug, and felt her warm embrace
They stayed so close, like two lovers
In the seventh cloud their head hover
They then saw in each others eyes
They forgot about the past, stopping each others endless cries
The girl gave a smile again, this time so wide
Boy's happiness came to his lips, and he couldn't hide
"Take care" she waved her hand and said
All his shyness the boy did shed
"You are beautiful" he said, had never been so bold
His shyness returned and his ears grew hot in that cold
"awe" was all she said and she gave another smile
He forgot about the world for that while
She turned around and said "meet you soon"
"will you meet me here in the light of the moon?"
The girl gave him a nod and waved her hand again
The feeling of meeting her again made him insane
The girl departed and slowly went away
The boy was amazed at the events and he kept staring on that way
Something was different he felt
He was born again, this thing he never before dealt
He put his hand on his heart
He felt something missing from his body's parts
His heart was no longer with him
It was with that girl who was so proper and prim
She stole the boy, of the only thing he had
And for that the boy was glad
The boy's heart was with that girl
It was inside the girl like a seep that having a pearl
That girl, unknowingly, was a thief
And this was their love story in the brief
The boy had stolen girl of her heart too
They fell in love before they even knew
They gave their own but got the others ones heart
The fell so deep, no force couldn't make them ever apart
And this story is of our first few meetings.
And the poem is my gift to her on this Valentine
