2015, Poems and poetry

Truly Yours.

To you, I want to give flowers–I don’t mind that being cliched–

Roses, wrapped in ribbons. Letters, soaked in perfume. Stars.

Unnecessary though it might be, I want to tell you again and so often

Love, how much I have come to love you that I’ve now begun to live you.

Your thought is my drug, your memory is heaven’s mercy,

Your presence is an air without which my lungs parch up.

Oh the Sun of my universe, the Light of my soul!

Undying is my adoration–like a forever flowing ocean.

Remember this: my gift to you is my heart. I am yours.

Some day you’ll see. That some day, we will be.

Written in response to Writing 201 challenge: write something about a gift, use a simile. Poem form: acrostic. (The first letters of each line together form a special word which is the theme here.) Hi.

  1. Dear Randomly Abstract, ditto with the previous comments. Reading this made me slow down and appreciate life. I can tell it’s from the heart. Beautiful.

  3. I came across your blog through sulphurman’s and you’re as good as he says you are! 🙂

    I think this is a really cool way of writing poems!

  4. “how much I have come to love you that I’ve now begun to ‘live’ you” …Twin I’m always at loss of words when I read your poetry, it’s baffling how beautifully you write, really…

  5. Maria, Love, how much I have come to love you that I’ve now begun to live you. I LOVE this line so so much. Kuch words hotay hain na jin ko perh k apka dil kerta hai baar baar perho aur pher yaad ker k memory me save ker lu. Aisi line hai. Beautiful poetry. Really beautiful.
    I really wish I could write about love once again. But I can’t right now. You are amazing at this. Really.
