Listen

Listen

The sound of waves crashing on to boulders

Reminds me of your stubbornness

How you stood still by your opinion

Unwavering

The gust of wind that swayed deep rooted trees

Reminds me of your strength

Saving me

As I was about to fall

You pulled me to your chest

and said

“Clumsy”

But despite your composure

I am aware

That you are anxious

As I listen to

Your heart

Skipping

A beat.

Dear-

Dear-

Your voice

Your gaze

Your stature

Everything about you comes in a pretty package

With a bit of spice

Every time you tease

I secretly crave for more of

 Your touch

Your hugs

Your kisses

Though I am too shy to say

That my body craves for it

But my mind is telling me

To wait

Until the wedding bells chime

I might be meek to say the least

But I value purity in high regard

Thus I hope you understand that

I did this out of my own consent

If you do respect me for who I am

Then by all means

Stay by my side

Forever and always.

Love sick

Love sick

How I wish everytime I see you I have the courage to say

“I love you”

Three words

Seem simple yet complicated

The time feels right but waves of hesitation engulfs

It is as if I am stepping into a minefield

Unarmed

Love is a battlefield

Risky but rewarding

In the end, I am thankful

that our paths crossed

Without it our story would never start

With this, now I am certain

That I am sick

Love sick.
