Talk to me
Would you please tell me where I wronged you
Said I to Love
As we sat close to each other
Would you please tell me
As I understand not,
I simply obeyed the skies,
The booms of my heart
And the tugs of my senses!
I obeyed them all
And lay there
With my soul bared,
With my porous infections exposed
With my fragility held tight in your hands!
Still, when you broke me
I chose to hide my pain
Behind sweet civilities
And neutral smiles
Believing in the madness swivelling around the mysticism
Which desires our bond
A cause meant solely for the mad!
I don't understand how I wronged you
Maybe the silence, coupled with misunderstanding,
That has settled comfortably between us
Is to be blamed!
Maybe, all it requires is a push of the will
As the second hand pushes the minute one
As the winds push todays into tomorrows
As fate itself pushes souls towards their chosen journey!
Still, know that I remain yours
To handle with care
Or to break with rage
I remain yours
As your solace is to me
What nectar is for bees!
I have written for you the day I started to write
I have written lines and lines
Knowing not that I would cross your path in this world
And I shall keep doing so
As long as the body that carries me
Still has enough strength in it to allow me to!
