Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

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.

  3. This is lovely. I was cruising the Commons for inspiration to do MY acrostic (which means you’re not last), and this totally gave it to me.

  5. 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.

  10. Yay! This is a kilig-inducing poem!!! So sweeet!

  11. This is so good that it inspired me to try my hand at writing an acrostic poem. Sad to say it turned out to be .. er.. not very noteworthy.

    • Aray that is so cool!😀 Did you have fun doing it? I want to seee.

      October 7, 2015 at 3:18 pm

      • Oh, I don’t know if I had fun. More like scratched the scalp off my head searching for words😀

        Here you go:

        Emperor of the world!
        Holder of the Crown!
        Under whom the Kingdom
        Dares to exert
        A mighty frown, on

        All those who don’t
        Accede, to the
        Demands of the
        Mad king, who
        Is but a Djinn

        (Kill me now)

        • Ahaha! That’s actually amazing. So much power in these lines. And I want to write one in Urdu now. xD

          October 7, 2015 at 3:43 pm

          • Hahaha, you’re too polite😀
            Go ahead. I’ll be keeping an eye out.

            October 7, 2015 at 3:47 pm

          • I’ll try, insha Allah.😀 You should, too. Urdu acrostics, that would be new.

            October 7, 2015 at 3:53 pm

          • My Urdu knowledge is rudimentary. So that won’t work. I’ll see if I can come up with something less puke-inducing in English (or Hindi).

            October 7, 2015 at 3:56 pm

          • Hindi, yes. You have Faraz and Ghalib I think, on your blog. Do try!🙂

            October 7, 2015 at 3:59 pm

          • In sha Allah🙂

            October 7, 2015 at 4:00 pm

  12. This one is so cool. I’m your fan, autograph please?🙂
    Your poems have been making me understand Ma’m Huma’s lectures. Thanks so much :p

    October 7, 2015 at 3:54 pm

    • Hahaha. Jazakillah, Mahaay.
      I need to know about Mam Huma’s lectures. :p

  17. “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…

    October 11, 2015 at 5:00 pm

    • I am at a loss of words filhal, honestly. Thank you so much for the kind comment, twinny. Much love to you.

      October 11, 2015 at 9:55 pm

  18. 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.
