Your Birthday

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.

I am passionately curious about you

I stumble when you smile
I stumble when I look into your eyes
You hold the whole universe inside you
You are reason the sky is blue
You are the depth of the ocean
You are the light inside a cavern
Describing your beauty isn’t an easy task
But I have borrowed some words from the glow in the dark.
This poem is not just a rhyme
It is your love for you are divine.
