Goodbye friend

Its been so long now
I only remember you in flashes

Your tiny little canines
That show only when you laugh really loud
Your eyes, with the really long lashes
Your thickly set eyebrows
And that dimple you get on your chin when you smile

Oh yes, I do remember you
But not very fondly
Only a memory of you
Is enough to make me feel as if
The air around me is thickening
Suffocating me, as I end up gasping for life

I am glad you are disappearing
From my mind
One day, I hope to struggle to recall your name

Disappointment

Sometimes, these words
Feel like poor translations
Of a poem this heart is yearning to write

How disappointing it feels
When words fail you
Words, that you have spent an entire lifetime
Gathering and preserving
A plethora of them just resting on your bookshelf
In the hope of one day putting them all together on a string
In a way that would feel just right

Well, for now
I shall just bore you
With the story of words
That have decided to become
Unattainable

Kisses

Were your kisses always so gentle?
Like butterflies fleetingly touching my lips
And then over, and over again
Freely bestowed, as if they cost you nothing
And yet, leave me richer with every touch
This must be why I had fallen for you
In the first place
Your kisses leave me content
That, in this moment

I am right where I should be.

Only the beginning

I guess its often easy
To lose perspective
Of everything I am yet to live with you

No, we are not old news
Everyday I discover new things about you
That freckle on your cheek
That mark on your back
Your love for old films
Your weakness for sad songs

I am yet to find out
How your face is going to look
When we bungee jump off the highest tower in the country
Or the way you will look
When we learn to ice skate together
I have many memories to make with you
Many days to fill with you
Many lives to live with you

 You and I, we are only at the beginning

And I cannot wait to leap into forever
