Writing Prompt #4

We did not know what love was
We thought it was becoming one another
Or losing our identity
We thought it was being there
Without giving
Without listening
We thought it was losing our voice
So we could create a brand new reality

We did not know so we tried
We fought battles so we could stop the tide
From taking us afar with no chance of coming back

We did not know but we played the game
Thinking that feelings would keep us safe
And sane

We kept putting love
Into brackets
Trying to define it
Without the correct lens

Till
We became two strangers

Walking into darkness
Tears falling on deserted gardens
Where flowers could not bloom

We did not know what love was
We broke each other’s hearts
Till there was nothing left
But empty fields
With holes where we could hide
Thinking it would end the madness
That kept us in a delusive togetherness

Self-Expression

There are million ways to express ourselves…

Trying my hands at painting these days. No words, just silence to welcome the inspiration. Whatever it is…

What is your way?

You & Me – The chaos & The grace – Darkness and Love again…

You were at the beginning of all time.

I used to pray and laugh and feel blessed. I used to talk to you. Day and night. I used to find solace when I turned my face towards you and you would smile back.

And then I lose track…

I thought you could be contained. In a religion. In a group. I looked for you in every place, every space. What happened? I don’t know. I started listening to other voices. It was the beginning of a search that took me to the edge. Deep darkness.

It felt like everything I knew was gone.

It felt like you were gone.

I read and prayed. I was lost. I lied to myself so many times. I thought I could catch you. In a place. In a book. Nonsense.

I tried and tried. I got tired, took roads which were not for me to walk. I tried to fit in. Fit in a mess that wasn’t mine. Fit in thoughts that I’d not agree with.

I cried.

I called for you. I shouted at you. Why? Why? Why?

Nightmares would last and you were nowhere to be found.

And then, one day, I decided to let go. I could not walk anymore. I could not breathe anymore. I started to remember the girl I was once.

And you were there. You never left. You just waited for me to be ready to see you again.

You were in the silence of my heart. And the fragrance of my soul.

I want you

I want you

Not just your body

Not just the way you make me feel when you touch my skin

And take me to the borders of intense pleasure

Near the river where our energies meet in fusion

I want you

In every inch of my body

Every pause of my breath

Every silence of my heart

I want you

Deep down

Where heartbeats sing a melody

That nobody can hear

Except you and me

I want you

I want to melt into you

Till I feel tears I can’t contain

Wash away every pain

And our love shines in the break of light

That set darkness on fire.

Hold me tight

love-quote-1709944_640

Take me in your arms

Hold me tight

May we embrace the silence

May we allow ourselves

For you to be you

And I to be me

Without wanting anything else

Without letting our minds wander

In spaces

May we surrender to the power

Of our breaths

Creating shapes of vapor

In the fresh air

May we let lust and passion

Aside

Just for us to live fully

This moment of grace

Come close

Take me in your arms

Let me hold you tight

Early goodbye

They are tying their hands together

Looking at the sunshine

They never thought

It could shine again

Footsteps on the ground

Heaviness of their mind

And the silence

After the first cry

Too much blood

And running around

Too many white shirts

And deaf sounds

Life is gone

One shot of pain

Emptiness

Bodies left, with invisible scars

***

They said their love would save their life

They were right

Only love could protect them

From this early goodbye
