Your voice is my favourite music
The kind I’d love to listen to all day!
Your eyes my favourite illusion, in them
I’d love to get lost in every way!
Your scent feels just like home
The kind I never wanna stay away from, honestly, never!
Your shoulders more relaxing than any bed
Time stops and all my worries disappear and for once, it feels like forever!
Your hugs , the way you so deftly scoop me up in your strong arms
They’re the cocoons I keep coming back to even after breking free!
Your smile, the heavenly blend of innocence and tease
Knowing that I’m the reason for it, sends my heart on a happy spree!
How could you be dumb enough
To beleive him when he said you were special,
that there existed between you a common denominator
To forget all those times he ignored your calls and texts just because he was “sorry” later
How could you be so blind
To look past all his wrongs just because deep down you wanted him to be your “right”
To tolerate patiently all his mood swings for you fall all over again at his mere sight
How could you not realise,
The strings that you thought were attatched strongly had infact many loose ends
“The one” for him you werent, for you, none of his rules he’d ever bend
How could you be so reckless
To give up on your friends who meant the world to you to fit in his tiny dingy heart
To keep hiding all those scars he so obliviously gave
For the fear of everything falling apart…..
I dont know why I try to camouflage in their skin
And not stand up for myself, for what I am within
Adding layers upon layers and masks upon masks
Anything to fill the deep pit of soliteriness and self loathing, why do I do it to myself I ask
Why cant I enjoy a queit cup of coffee with my favourite book ,
And not care about my messy braid or how I look?
Why is everyone so reluctant to stand out ,
To simply smile instead of woo and pout?
I wonder if I’ll ever find, in this world of picture perfect freak shakes and fries
Someone who’d like to share … maybe a muffin? Or atleast tries..?
I’ve always wondered what love really is
Is it the helpless smile that gets plastered on your face whenever you talk
Or the unknown sadness you feel when you are away?
Is it the little dance your mind does when you spot them in a crowd
Or the tears that u supress when you cant express it out loud!
Does it give u wings or instead have u tied
Does it help u flourish or dry up inside,
“It hurts” said a broken heart, “it heals” said another,
So does it come with conditions necessary to abide?
