I want you here,

By my side

In a world cold

I always deride

I wish you would

Take my hand

Whisk me away

To another land

I need you here

To hold me close

Silently exchange words,

That nobody knows

I wonder if this wind

Stirring the leaves

Travels to you

On a moonlit eve

If it carries

My scent, mild

I wonder if you

Sense it, smile

The space between

May slowly diminish

As we’re granted

Our forgotten wish

Till then, come share

The stars with me

The only reality

We may together see

There are

People close, walking near

Breathing the same air

Yet, somehow, not really here

Then I have you, far away

In a distant place

Yet, tangible your presence

In this surrounding space

It’s not the burning red

Nor the bruises, black and blue

But the scars imprinted on my heart

I wish would cease to be true

Write me letters
That smell of you
Words splattered
With early morning dew
Raw thoughts
Thrown around
As you pour your heart
I hear their sound
 
Tease me with a
Long silence
Building anticipation
A wait, taut, tense
Let me get consumed
By the spaces in between
The lines you’ve written
And those I’ve seen
 
Beg me not
To see your face
To feel your presence
Or cover this space
For if we met
It would only lead
To bitter disappointment
Caused by the greed
 
I am not strong enough
To see your face
And not be able to, hold it in my palms
Not having the liberty, to lean into your arms
 
I am not adept at
Concealing my ardor
Having you together with me, so near
Yet, failing to tell you I hold you dear
 
It’s best I don’t think of you, at all
Keep you at a safe distance
Drown out your tormenting voice
Surround myself, with all this noise

I’ve just never
Learnt to say goodbyes
No I cannot smile
Through teary eyes

I cannot bear
The thought of losing hold
Of the warmth of your hand
Leaving me empty, bereft, cold

I cannot watch your form
Disappear into the distance
Slowly, but surely, moving away
With every passing instant

I cannot look at you
To realize
It’s the last time I’m seeing
My reflection in your eyes

I cannot watch you leave
Throwing away
All that we had
To find your own way

So forgive me
If I disappoint you
Because
You disappoint me too

I’ve just never
Learnt to say goodbye
A part of me
Still wills it to be a lie

Space, an infinite expanse
Stretching endlessly
Separating
You and me
Yet, there is so much
That we still share
The light from the moon
The stars at which we patiently stare
The same bittersweet
Memories
Binding us
In time, they freeze
I fervently hope, tomorrow
The warmth does not
Melt the frozen moments, timeless
Washing away all that we’ve got

A safe distance, from afar
Hidden, ugly scars
 
A step closer, uncertain
A glimpse of what’s behind the curtain
 
An instant too late
Love, replaced by hate
 
The moment, irreversible
Every deceit, discernible
 
The dream tarnished
Against my wish
 
Another disappointment
To my mind lent
 
Deep within, a familiar stir
Maybe I am simply, looking in the mirror.

We are lovers
Like the crest and the trough
of a wave
Close, yet never meeting
Glimpses, intimacy
for moments fleeting
Carried together
To the shore
Destroyed
For wanting more
