You took the blade and placed it pointing down on my chest, slowly you began to thrust it in stopping every now and then to smile at me; then you began to twist the blade in a reckless manner all the time still smiling, as if that wasn’t enough, you asked me how I felt…

I want…

I want to do what I’ve never done before
To go to a place where I haven’t been before
I want to take off and fly up high
Spread my wings and soar through the sky
I want to watch the rising sun
To hear the birds’ song as it is sung
I want to live in a beach house
Wake and sleep to the waves’ sound
I want to be at the bottom of an ocean
To be alone and witness the great illusions
I want to live in a forest with tall trees
Lay on branches and witness the sun’s beams through the leaves
I want to live in a peaceful valley
To feel her warmth all the time all around me
I want to live in a secluded cove
Where the sea comes up when it gets dark and cold
I want to stand on top of a hill
And feel the breeze as if it would blow me away
I want to do so many things
That I can’t even think of, let alone pen down
But what I do know is this
In this life or the next, I will get my desire and my wish.

She said so much when she said nothing at all…

As I closed the door and turned around, there she was standing in all her beauty, holding a book against herself as the street lamp shone on her as if she was on centre stage.
I looked into her deep, enchanting eyes, and for a moment there, we stood looking at each other with neither of us uttering a word.
“If only this wasn’t so hard,” she spoke, “I wish all these obstacles weren’t between us.”
“My dear, I only wish I could make them go away,” I replied.
I could hear her voice clearly in my head as she said those words, for it was not with her lips that she uttered them, but it was through those most beautiful eyes that they were said and engraved in my heart.

It drives me crazy…

“Can you do me a favour,” he said.
“Sure, what’s on your mind?” She smiled.
“Do you promise you’ll do it?” He spoke as he stared at the sky.
“I promise I will do my best,” she said.
“Can you come to me once and then never leave again?” He said.
“Wha…. what do you mean?” She said after a moment’s pause.
He turned towards her and looked deep in her eyes, “Every time you leave and then return, I fall in love with you all over again… and it simply drives me crazy.”
