nightingale

Posted on Updated on

I often leap
to touch your colours
breathe in
your lingering taste

in agony, in ecstasy
I climb inside you
as you unravel
in my veins

in your garden
flowers blossom
like open secrets
and warm kisses
fall down like rain

your one spark
spun me in a trance
now lost in you
I have become insane

every single memory
leads me back to you
born out of love
my very existence
bears your name

tell me
oh darling Beloved
how can I stay apart then
and yet
remain the same?

    I want your
    ‘Autograph’
    On notebook
    Of my heart.

    I’m your
    New fan.
    Half silly

      Thank you for your kind, generous words Gaurav 🙂 I am nothing really, none of this is ‘mine’ per se.. just an instrument to whatever flows from beyond. Happy to hear you resonated 🙂 🌿✨
