La Douleur Exquise



I stare at the sky
as gravity keeps me grounded
and wonder if the moon appears
as bright to you
as it appears to me?
I catch the wind
in my fists
and glue it with kisses
and send them towards the sky...

If you ever feel
a puff touch your lips
or wind caress your hair,
I want you to feel my scent and touch
And know..
that even though I have never
been able to express
my love
or ask...
i do feel it..
as strongly as you don't!

And sometimes, I believe
you are like that dream
I keep chasing...
A beautiful illusion..
And this, darling,
is universe's way of letting me know
that the yearning should never stop
no matter how heart wrenching the pain is...
just like you...
