I have been waiting for something good to come my way

Something warm, something gentle

Something not so heavy on my chest

Some ease of breath, perhaps?

Sometimes I ponder, unto myself

Is life what it seems to be?

Am I the only me?

Will I be remembered?

I ruminate deep inside

Like you are etched forever in my mind?

Sometimes you meet people

A little too late

And sometimes, time runs out

Too quickly before you get a chance to properly know them

My heart roams intoxicated, inebriated

Transfixed with the fear of being in love


I start to wonder what it would be like

Am I falling helplessly again?

You were not meant to be the 2 am thought

Or the 3 am poems

You were not supposed to be the midnight dreams

And afternoon wishes

But somehow you managed to be all those things and more

The parts of you I know, I love

Flaws and imperfections

The parts of you that you share

I cherish and hold dear

You don’t look at me

But when you do, your gaze

Your gaze finds a heart in me

That throbs when you smile

And fireworks in my mind

Exploding into a thousand colourful bits

With each touch

I’m aware

You are not someone to wilt flowers to my name

Yet, in your eyes I found galaxies

The whole universe in your soul

And stardust in your words

But the stars are the million miles too far to reach

And the galaxies too infinite to explore

So maybe I’ll learn to stay silent

And smile at the absurdity of it all

Love is a word puzzle

With all the clues given wrong

The answer, however is what you want it to be

If you’d like to stay a while

I believe there is room here for you to rest

You are always welcome


If you’d like

And if not

I will wait

And I will find you again

And again

In everything I see

    1. Thank you so so much Yang. I’m sorry for the late reply. India’s loss has devastated me. Currently suffering from PTSD.
