Hey, I think
I may want to spend
the rest of my life with you.
For the way you flirt,
it works with me,
Wherever with you,
I feel I belong.
I don’t have to rattle
my mind for wittier diction,
for your contended smile
seems inspired enough by my daily wit.
Your need for space and intimacy
public displays of affection
catch me off guard,
in a very flattering way,
for sometimes even I can’t get enough of you.
Your behavior is now
and that’s a good thing because
it saves me a lot of anxiety.
I know that we are somehow intimidated
by so much that we know
of each other’s scars and mothers,
but I am ready to live with the risk
of you holding that knowledge
against me at times
than to live without knowing the rest of you.
P.S. – A shout out to Poets United for the platform they provide for so many poets and readers to get together and celebrate their love for poetry.
and also, this is my 50th Post (yeyee..!!) , so thank you all for being part of this journey of our common love for written words..
