Do you remember, the day we journeyed together?
Will an account of details, de-clutter your rotten memory now, I wonder!
But let me tell you, that day when your hands found mine,
an intertwined crochet stitch of perfection I interpreted.
Flooding the veins with strength and hope, magic present in every touch.
And in the depth of your eyes, I thought, I found my nepenthe,
The courage to hold on without fading and remaining lost.
In your arms, within your embrace, I found my safest haven.
Where I was whole and complete, where I was, “Me”.
When I laid my head on the curve of your shoulder,
My restless spirit took a recess in quietness, I must admit!
No more war, my mind at ease conjured itself to tranquillity.
The hurricane inside surrendering to your presence,
Unable to perceive the mystery.
Ah! When I kissed you, I knew time could be locked for eternity,
Moments those feel the same when gray spray your hair.
Those feeble caresses rekindled the child in me
Gifting my eyes unicorns and satyrs,
And under your breath, I was melting down.
Each breath, an unwritten lullaby, like the beat of your heart.
The sparks involved dissolved every doubt, uncertainty that remained.
And in your warmth, I was losing my numbness forever.
Alas! How recklessly did I fell over and over again
like the steady rains with no halt in between, through the chaos.
Reassuring that you were my magic all along;
And dear, how well you taught me that magic was the greatest illusion of all times, with few actors in the hiding!!!
