the whole night
i've been holding my breath
without realising,
so when i exhale
it surprises me with an intensity
i've never known.
****

I think I love you,

Well, atleast I want to.

I inhale forgiveness.
And exhale all my vengeance.
Like taking a word from my right ear,
And throwing it out from the other
It hurts to say this:
Saying "Marhaba" to misfortune with warm hugs
Know why I do this?
I wait for serendipity
To surprise me with a confetti of lilies.
I'll fly with each petal...
But,
Why do I forget that there's always a purpose behind an accident?

Love is easy as breathing,
but around you I can't exhale
Is that why my chest hurts,
holding onto my every breath when we inhale?
Love has it moments of hurt.
In all the things you do, you love.

Every smile you give holds love
and my eyes light up with joy.
You laugh and it stirs my soul.

With every tear you cry, drops love
and my heart breaks for you.
You hurt and I want to bandage your pain.

A touch of your hand embraces love
and my skin tingles.
You need and I want to fulfill it.

Every word you speak echoes love
and I melt at the sound of your voice.
You give life to the vowels and the consonants.  

Every breath you take exhales love
and my heart is charged anew.
In all the things you do, you love me best.

The heaviness on my chest feels as though there is a boulder that decided to rest there for eternity

The heaviness on my chest never seems to waver since it rests so peacefully.

The heaviness on my chest rests peacefully, but I do not feel peaceful

The heaviness on my chest makes me feel uneasy

The heaviness on my chest makes me feel breathless


The deep breath I let go is to exhale the heaviness on my chest

The deep breath I let go is to waver the heaviness on my chest

The deep breath I let go is to feel peaceful despite the heaviness on my chest

The deep breath I let go is to feel at ease even with the heaviness on my chest

The deep breath I let go is to inhale again without the heaviness on my chest
you’re the kind of high i like,
the one i can’t get enough of,
you are my favorite flower.

and i’ll watch you lay on a blanket,
and wrap your arms to cuddle me in,
let our emotions ride the waves
feelings all so raw and real.

and i’ll inhale you deeply,
hold it in,
plant the seeds to grow a
garden of you.

your aroma, your scent,
it thickens in my memories,
my lungs tastes of you.

and exhaling all that anxiety,
my mind has turned a switch
and all the noise i once drowned in
are muffled whispers going into silence.

and i smile by the way
i’m addicted to you that
all i want is more of you,
i don’t want just the bouquet
but the paradise garden that is you.
on the spot writing so might tweak in the future but you get me as high as a kite
