The kvell in your eyes when you see her approaching,
Resembles the fictional lovers in novels she reads,
You reveal that treasured smile only to her,
As if you sneaked something, for no one else to see.
Holding her hand, you ask, how long is all this going to last?
How much time do we have before we become a past?
In the end, we always get more than what we ask,
Patience my dear, haste will spill the patience cask.
Enfaith, it all will be right here till it simply won’t;
What’s to lose even if destiny betrays us upfront!
Don’t you want to know what future holds?
Can we not know if all we’ll end up in would be a bliss or a fuss?
Knowing more than needed has helped who about what,
How can you enjoy roller coaster rides if you off-pat the trail?
Live for now, now is where I am right where you are,
Don’t you worry if we can’t outlive this, for living this in itself is a wonder!
I am directionless, so confused about all this,
How are you so sure about this? Don’t you see all this mess?
I see your drive, direction we will find with it,
I am sure about nothing, but that’s how it is meant to be,
Holding your hands in mine is enough surety for now,
Mess can happen only if I dare to start asking if all this is a mess in the first place!
Why do I have so many questions when I know what I feel for you?
What makes me restless thinking about us being together?
You trick your emotions with the forbidden sight of your past,
Even jeans take several washes to get a comfortable fit,
And you demand all of surety, consistency, loyalty at a go?
Unless you simply want to love, will there be end to questions; shall there stay only love.
Where do I begin?
What do I name my relation with you?
Begin? That you have already done, what you do now is resume.
Don’t give doubts so much power that it destroys what your heart wants;
Name this relation what you practice for it,
Call it friendship, call it care, loyalty or of youth a dare!
Lots of love,
