Fall in love with me

Fall in love with me,
i’ll immortalise you,
your smile, your giggles,
your cries, your sobs,
your strengths,
your weaknesses
In my poems and
treasure them in
ink blots.

Fall in love with me,
i’ll show you the
beauty in pearls,
sugar beads,
coffee mugs, crayons,
daisies, curtains,
your palms and
circles under eyes.

Fall in love with me,
i’ll align all my stars,
tracing path to moon,
to live like great
lovers on earth,
i’ll start from
where you stop,
and complete until
i die.

Fall in love with me,
i’ll sew you a blanket
of hope,
which i’ll curl on over you,
i’ll turn your empty
notebooks to
gallery of skies,
burnt orange,
vagrant white and
azure black.

Fall in love with me,
i’ll take you to a
world full of
melancholic metaphors,
artistic imageries,
of whose walls
are filled with
Van Gogh’s paintings.

Fall in love with me,
i’ll play with your shadows
until they fade away,
i’ll bury you in my chest,
sharing breath,
letting heartbeats sync
igniting our dying cells,
giving new life.

Fall in love with me,
i’ll build you a garden of
sunflowers, pine trees,
honey bees,
i’ll take you eleven
miles from the city
and get you wildflowers,
kiss you wilder .
Fall in love with me,
i’ll paint you with pastels
of love and intimacy.

Fall in love with me,
i’ll love you like i
always wanted to.

Fall in love with me,
rescue me from,
the broken streets,
from the air of
unrequited love.
find me, fix me,
with bandages
and be my euphoria
in dreadful days.

I’ll wait for you,
look for you
in library racks,
in park chairs,
in ruptured
dandelions and
shooting stars.

Find me, love me,
promising that you
wouldn’t leave me
like a lingering
single-digit number,
yet another time.

//an audacious lover’s tale//

I wanted to rescue this from the drafts and somehow managed to complete this piece. Hope it turned out well.

It’s been a year since I wrote my first poem. If someone asks if a poem can change one’s perspectives, thoughts, opinions, I would say ‘yes’ as it changed mine. When I look back at the journey in writing the result is a graph showing both progress and mistakes. It’s overwhelming to see where and how I stand today, this wouldn’t have been possible without the persistent encouragement. Most of the bloggers who read and comment today, were with me here for a very long time that you can see their comments in the older posts too. I would be eternally grateful for the love and support! ❤

  1. Your blue eyes
    have been hiking since
    half a century
    through my heart
    I was afraid
    Your lips
    like petals
    at your request
    that they break
    You beloved
    the nectar of it
    to kiss
    wanting to drink from it

  2. Wanted to pick a favourite line from the poem but God, you made it so hard by making every line INCREDIBLY STUNNING! This is what a masterpiece looks like! This poem is like the smell of rain, new clothes and new books. Like the touch of a flower, like a cup of hot chocolate. Brutally great! 👌👌
