under the velvet darkness
of those summer nights
you held me close to you
like a sacred song

rumi once said
that lovers do not finally meet
somewhere along the way
they are inside each other
all along

is that why your name
reawakened a fire in my blood
the moments our lips touched?
your kisses sweet
like the first new moon in the sky

i drank the honey from your lips
and realised how blind i'd been
to ever look for love
when you had lived inside me
in every lifetime.
- i wonder when you gaze at the stars, do they still sing my name?

and now
when we are nothing
but dust
i only wish
that you let me show you
you were always
enough.
- so cover me up and know you're enough to use me for good.
Life passes between you and I
As our eyes met
And you saw everything you needed
As I saw everything I've been looking for
I don't know if you are one for me
I don't know if I am the one for you
But this time I feel so right
So I will just go with the flow
This is a poem I had written which is part of my directorial venture short film "Made in Heaven' an idea short film on youtube. It has been beautifully composed by Rohan Abraham

Suffocated and overwhelmed-
This is what i'd always felt,
You are needed to mend
The broken pieces and
Suffering I needed dealt .

Who are you really? I ask,
This feeling always seeping
From my past.
Loneliness and hunger-
To me is a real danger.

What is this feeling? I inquired,
Like keys to a lock that's always
Been buried-
Confused and longing etched
Deep in my bones.

you looked at me
like a child
looks at his fallen ice cream
mourning the sweetness
he never got to taste

i should have seen it then
the goodbye in your eyes
i guess i was too busy
trying to stop myself
from spilling over your feet.
- this will be the last time you take me.

i once thought how easily
i could compare my love
to my eating disorder

sometimes i want all of you
to devour you hungrily
consuming you with greedy hands
only to exorcise you out
when i feel unworthy

other times it sneaks up on me
your name humming in the dark
leaving me starving
for nothing will satisfy but you

if only i could let myself
have a single taste
to press my teeth upon your heart
and feel your blood rising
to meet mine

then, once all i could taste was you
once you kissed every corner
of my honey soaked mouth
i would spit you out
before i could swallow you whole
before the hurt came
and ruined me entirely.

my body a vessel
my being, come true
from the source of my soul;
all my rivers and oceans
flow straight back to you.
for only you, could weave a magic
a witchcraft so divine;
that just a single thought of you
can take me back through time.
reliving each and every moment
every kiss and stolen glance;
to laying laying alone in darkness
realising it would be our last.

i still think of you every single day.
I’m tired
of not having
you here beside me.
I think I met my soulmate. How do you know? What if you’re wrong?
