Through framed window
Drops of rainbow and the snow

Illustration or illusion?
Delusion of reflections!

What do you see in each colour?
Variety of her gestures!

Do you understand well? perfectly?
No treatment for that 'your excellency!

Subway skip jive,
Off and on,
Up and over,
Been and gone.

Mind your wallet,
Watch your step,
Take your seat,
Turn right, lean left.

Token trav’lers,
Quick, quick, slow,
We’re underground,
And on the go.

‘I loved the abandoned subway stations, rushing past the darkened platforms, the sprawl of graffiti like old letters. Letters left by ghosts.’

Alright, perhaps I'm listless

Drained, by my past now gone

So, please don't get ahead of yourself  

You won't find what you're hoping for

But I do hope you're not disappointed

I can only be who I am, to who I try to be

But if you so choose to go on with me

I hope you remember what was said from the beginning

Don't tell me that you love me
Because I won't love back
Don't tell me that you need me
Because I don't need that
Don't tell me that you want me
Because I'm on my own


When it all start to whittle

Remember every bit of what was said, every bit of it  

Yes, maybe I want to be by myself

Not wanting anyone else

But I'm not

For I truly hope you're not disappointed

I could only be who I am, to who I try to be

But if you so dare, to go on

Don't you use those words, those gestures,  

Or even make promises that hold no meaning to you

Because to me they will and once they do I hold on to them

While I'm easily crippled, to be repaired with side effects.

If I was to be honest I don't know either.
Based of lyrics Alone by Bazzi
She tickled
my curiosity
just enough
to keep me
with the simplest
gestures of kindness

it's ironic how love is a fleeble thing yet it feels so heavy when it comes to you. i love you in sighs heaving out on my lips. i love you in glances i take when you're out the door. i love you as i swallow lumps that form in my throat. i love you the most in the smallest gestures of your actions, when you absently thread your fingers between your hair, when your tongue ran over from one corner of your lips to the other, when you squint your eyes when you read details in small font. i love you silently. i love you with distance i will never know how to minimize. i love you in ways in which you don't pay attention, in moments when your thoughts wander as you stare into an empty space. maybe that's why even though you're close, you're still so far away because i keep saying that i love you in inaudible whispers until they form a love letter in the back of my mind, hoping you could read it someday.

Its late night now
Its dark and cold too
Yet here I am on my balcony
Wrapping my own body with a blanket;

Once again I am indulged in my own thoughts
As I stare into the starry night
And hope it won't disappear into the thick clouds;

Wandering as I go back to those times
When I was innocent and young and selfish
Never did I knew how grateful I am to have you;

I was oblivious- you were there always
Asking and making sure I was feeling fine
Whether it was physically or emotionally
Like you said once:

"I'll be here waiting- for moral support"

You were there-
You knew I was lying when you ask if I was fine
When I said:

"I am fine" with a broken smile

Yet you stayed and made sure I was to go home with a cheerful smile
You stayed and we talked for a while- oohhh we bought ice cream at that time too!

You were there-
When the time it was raining and I didn't brought my umbrella
And you lend me yours
And you walked- almost like running on the street
As the raindrops blur your vision

I was so grateful

Such wonderful memories!
And its still strong and going!

Going back to those times- even at this times
Makes me go crazy!
We're friends- and I don't want to confuse myself
With such sweet gestures.... With love

Because I don't know.....

When the storyteller of Don Quixote told me that love needs no excessive gestures
I felt it was true
And when you saw those words written on my journal
The same time we found the courage to hold on again
You said it isn't about needing though
It's about wanting
And that was what I've been trying to tell you this whole time
I didn't want you because I need you
I needed you because I want you
I love you
But it was only this time that I realize how true those words were to me
We never needed big surprises in public places
And thousands of pictures and social media posts
Although I would have loved that
Love found no need for labels
To know I have you and you have me, always
I don't think there's anything that could ever encompass what we had
Is there a label that could say we found what love really is with what there was
Love didn't need a hell of a roller coaster ride relationship to prove its worth because
You were right
When you feel it, it'll stay there
You just believe it
Not the kind of belief where you believe in something to make it true
But the kind where you believe because it is true
Love needs no excessive gestures
It only needed you and I
It only needed us, in our little bubble, soft glances, warm smiles, right by each other's side, with certainty and calmness we've never found before
Love needs no excessive gestures
But we had always made it so much more.
Thank you for this kind of love. M.
I'm still trying to understand
how the sky emerges the signs to make meaning
how the star interacts with other stars
how the moon portrays the gestures
but I love to see the lamps in every corner of house from the window
and I think this is the language of light in the night

In the darkest of nights,
And the stars shining bright,
Lets make love.

In a special kind of way,
Your fingers running tenderly through my hair,
Lets make love.

When your eyes are reflecting moonlight,
Just hold onto me tight, and,
Lets make love.

Listening to your tempting voice,
With me appreciating you as my choice,
Lets make love.

The warm embrace of your arms,
And your touch healing my soul,
Lets make love.

A lil forehead kiss and nothing more,
With all these small gestures,
Lets make Love.
