high up in the sky

beautiful patches

of the night time

followed wherever I went.

The street was crowded

with rustic leaves

and howling winds.

Scattered around

were a zillion voices

faces with fables galore.

There wasnโ€™t a soul in sight

except myself

and my shadow behind.

Together we explored

every nook and cranny

happily thinking

I could never have a better company

until the dark gathered around

and the first to vanish

was my treacherous shadow

quick on its heels.

Your words

dug a grave

for my soul

so deeply

soothing

that

I wanted

to remain there

buried forever

When I gave you that book

I gave you more than I could

And who knew

what future held

But I believed in us

And it went without saying

that I loved you

more than you deserved

I didnโ€™t know what to do

When you said you couldnโ€™t meet me

on your birthday, that you had to go away

I trusted your eyes, those words,

and when you were gone

I ransacked every place I could

to get the best gift there was

And I happened by this book

which had my heart, my life

I wrapped it with all my love

as I wrote โ€˜To the best I know, the best of meโ€™

I wondered what you were doing

as I stopped by your place

to surprise you before you left

but what an irony

when I was given a surprise myself

by your gardener, a seventy year oldie

seems, youโ€™d never left, nor were going to

that you had a grand party

with friends and ex-lovers too

I was offered a ride that I promptly denied

with rage in my head and tears in my eyes

I turned to leave

but not before I parted with what I had to give

I asked your gardener for a penly favor

he said he had none and gave me a pencil

One last look beyond the shimmering parapet

realising not everything that glitters is gold

I tore off the foolish display of my affections

and signed โ€˜P. S. I donโ€™t love youโ€™, instead.

Every

nook and cranny

of the crumbling

ruins

were reeking of

such homesick

memories,

I kissed the

rotting debris

as if it were

a loverโ€™s lips

mighty hills on both sides

the haughty river dancing jovially

the sight made my heart tremble

like an anxious bride-to-beโ€ฆ

melting frost and snow

began to slowly hypnotize

my wild wild heart

and this chagrined mindโ€ฆ

amidst cloud-kissing peaks

and pines so sky-high

I forgot how lonely I was

despite no soul in sightโ€ฆ

my heart grew fertile

rosy dreams galore

I felt like a new person

on a frozen wintry roadโ€ฆ

You stole my heart

with your windy nights

that caressed my body

and left me in shiversโ€ฆ

Hey, December,

Iโ€™ve loved you more than summers

โ€˜Tis you Iโ€™ve wished to stay longer

I hope you always rememberโ€ฆ

And every time,
breathing felt like
a mountain weighing you down
I wish youโ€™d come running into meโ€ฆ
that youโ€™d allow me
to cradle you to sleepโ€ฆ
And every time,
living felt like
a burden drowning you down
I wish youโ€™d come running into meโ€ฆ
that youโ€™d allow me
to cradle you to sleepโ€ฆ
And when youโ€™d wake up
the darkness in your eyes
will have given home
to poignant smilesโ€ฆ
And when youโ€™d wake up
the new moon night
will have given way
to bright morning sunlightโ€ฆ

Iโ€™m this closeโ€ฆ

to shedding the jitters

to breaking away from bitters

to releasing the heartโ€™s flutters

Iโ€™m this closeโ€ฆ

to refueling the fire

to freeing the repressed desires

to rewriting my memoir

Iโ€™m this closeโ€ฆ

to losing the reins

to reducing to vain

to falling in love again

Dear Heart,

I am still

to meet someone

who would

put me in

more sweet trouble

than you.

Yours lovingly.

In a world

that falls

for looks,

darling,

go for the soul.
