Deep in the coridors of my 
yearning heart I dwell in the 
gloom that befalls me 
whenever the heat of your 
body lies 300k's away from 
I quiver in anxiety anticipating 
the moment ur parted lips 
would explore my almost 
sealed shut mouth. I await the 
hold of your arms as they will 
envelope my body and hold 
me tighter and longer than a 
life line.. 
My dear I ache for the burning 
look in ur eyes as it  etches 
itself into my soul seeing the 
vulnerable broken glass I 
really am.. the way you break 
all the rose coloured mirrors 
nd look at me thru a clear 
uncoloured biological canvas. 

When you're alone, your heart 
and mind finally take turns 
communicating with u and 
letting u hearself- feel urself- 
understand urself ..
When you're alone epiphanies 
are not just epiphanies.. They 
are dreams that have been 
coming true when u were too 
busy looking past them and 
not at them.. When you're 
alone the sun seems more 
calm, heartache hurts a little 
less, water suddenly has a 
taste.. And air suddenly 
passes thru ur lungs like a  
ring slipping on to a familiar 
When you're alone, u can 
actually feel the curve of ur 
The shed of ur tear
The break of ur heart
When u'r alone- things seem 
to move in slow motion..
U can suddenly see flowers 
 The birth of butterflies  ..
Whe u're alone... The world 
becomes Your world ..
Enlightenment is finally found. 

When you're alone math is not 
just math..
It is an artistic sexual 
encounter that ur mind has 
with the world givin life to 
pure genius - complex 
simplicity made into poetic 
calculations painted by  the 
mind's brush... 

When u're alone love is not 
just love ..
It is not an 'is' .. But it is what 
it is..
An inexplainable paradox of 
emotions- insync with the 
universe- a law of attraction- a 
gravitational pull towards 
worlds within a world .. 
When you're alone nothing 
makes sense and sense makes 
nothing .. 
Like a secret known by all but 
understood by none... Love is 
an enigma.. Love is the jack 
of all traits and master of ALL 

When you're alone ... When 
I'm alone
I think of all this and more my 
Because of u- my mind is 
challenged in every possible 
way to think beyond any scope 
.. To reach the unreacheable- 
to create poetry and 
enlightenment becoz even 
when I'm alone and you're 
300k's away... I'm still with
