Heart not free

And though he had got over her, he could never outgrow her love. The thought of her warmth still made him comfortable. Maybe he had convinced himself that she will never be his, but he can never get rid of her impression on him.

Now he looked for her in every girl he met. His heart yearned for the same spark again. And this is probably the worst place to be. The person ready to love but heart not free.


Too late

She liked me and I think I liked her too.
But none of us had the guts to speak out the truth.
We kept meeting everyday, We kept seeing each other.
Everyone else in the room could see it, everyone else but us.
I think I had made up my mind a couple of times,
But backed out.
I think even she tried,
But couldn’t.
Friends kept insisting and I kept delaying.
I don”t understand what was so tough.
Just three words…
Time was fleet and we didn’t meet.
Until one fine day,
She came to me.
I had decided to say it today.
I grabbed her hand and fell to my knees.
Asked her,’I love you and will do it always. Will you be mine forever?
With equal love she looked into my eyes,
Tears rolled down her cheeks.
Too late‘, she said as she pulled her hand out of mine,
Her ring came out in the motion.

I love you too..

She said it. She was worried about the outcome but was happy that she said it. Now she patiently waited for his reply.

Silent since she began speaking, he hadn’t fluttered an eye. Listening keenly and looking into her eyes. He was thoughtful. His thoughtfulness increased her excitement.

Anticipation was killing her. She felt her pulse increase. ‘That’s how I feel. You don’t need to feel the same’, she said and then cursed herself inside for saying it. She was shivering.

Suddenly, he moved towards her slowly and caught both her hands. Looked deep into her eyes. Leaned over and kissed her and said ‘I love you too’.

If I could ever…

Her bright face calls me every time I look at her. 

The pretty locks and her bright temple. 

I talk to her not but waive hi and goodbye.

Her distant smile beams through my day.

I think and only think of her all night.

I wonder if I could ever,

Go to her near and grab her hand

Look into her eyes and hold my breath.

Tell her that her pretty dimple has taken away my sleep from me.

Tell her that her gorgeous eyes have swept me off the ground beneath me.

Tell her that her charming smile takes me onto cloud nine.

Tell her that I want to make her mine forever after.

Only if I had had the guts.

To be fearless and to open up.

Walk up to her and speak my heart. 

That I love her forever and ever.
