This post is for you…
If you are a stranger, I shall keep you
like a curious gleam
among things in
my attic of thought.
If you are beautiful to my eyes, I shall keep you
like each drop of ink
that drowns my muse
in a sinking embrace.
If you are a hope, I shall keep you
like the tender hold
of my hands,
clasped in earnest prayer.
If you are a desire, I shall keep you
like the wistful look
at a ripened fruit, laden
but on heights of futile reach.
If you are my beloved, I shall keep you
like the delicate reflection
of gentle moonlight
seeping in the ocean of my heart.
If you are a secret, I shall keep you
like the tingling dance
of a stolen kiss,
upon my lips.
If you are my pride, I shall keep you
like the showy shine
of the best brooch I wear,
on my prettiest dress.
If you are a misunderstanding, I shall keep you
like the twitch,
in the flailing tick
of my broken watch.
If you are a regret, I shall keep you
like the pestering ponder
that returns to me,
in my vacant moods.
If you are a foe, I shall keep you
like the dog-eared end
of a page of each lesson,
yet to be learnt.
If you are forgotten, I shall keep you
like the longing throb in my heart,
that awakens at the touch of fading ink,
now too old to be read.
If you are just a wanderer, I shall keep you
Like the impulse
to smile at a passer-by
and feel the wordless joy…
Plummet… into the darkness
shaded with flaws,
So let go, let my words
And for you,
in my Abyss I shall keep a place,
I shall thus, hold you within,
So that was the last post for 2015! And such coincidence, it was my 1ooth too. 🙂 Yay. Cheers for this year… and for the year to come!
Hope all of you have a bash!
Best wishes, love and sparkles and rainbows and smiiileees for all!
I could’ve written an emotional, profound post for the 31st of December 2015… but I guess, the world would have to do without it. Haha. kidding…
Folks, thank you so much for all the awesome comments and likes and appreciation… for posting amazing things and making my boring life better with those smiles and laughter.
This year, sure was one hell of an year.
And hats off to those who survived!
