Last few days or I must say months
have been hard for me and
I think I’m making them hard for you too
with my whimsical moods.
Honestly, I feel unloved and ignored
most of the times, but it is not
your fault as my heart has been
very needy or greedy these days.
But I never stopped loving you
It is easy to fall for you than
to build a wall against you.
One day, I came to know that
Rumi wrote 10,000 poems for his beloved.
The only figure that came to my mind was 10 million.
Without you, I’m shallow
like this poem, no rhyme
no rhythm, just simple living.
I could write sad poems
But no, today is not a sad day.
It’s s day brimming with joy
If it’s not, I’ll steal everything from the sky
Just for you.
Your birthday comes on the last day
of August, bringing a change in the nature.
Just like you brought in my life.
You are an ocean
I want to be drowned in.
Knowing your heart is not easy
for it requires breaking my heart
a million times.
Do you think I can endure it?
I don’t know much about life
this world and love
but I know one thing
that you’re beautiful
and you always will be.
P.S I think it’s time to use the past tense since you are no longer in my future.
