    White, pure and holy. ♡

    Will you stop time for me?
    Will you pause everything that's in motion?
    Will you move heaven and earth for me?
    Or do you have some other notion?
    Can we stay here forever?
    Under the stars and the fireworks?
    Can we behold this sight forever
    and avoid the end and the waterworks?
    Do we really have to give up our place
    and move to a room with a roof?
    I don't think we can ever replace
    the magical sky and this starry night is proof.
    I love you to the pearl-white moon and back.
    Everytime I look at it, l'm reminded of our love - white,
    pure and holy.
    I take in its beauty and I lose track
    of the time I spent wishing it stood still.
    Listen, this silence might kill someone else.
    But it soothes me and that's all I need.
    Knowing that we can live with the silence that dwells,
    that matters to me.
    You're one in a million and I'm glad I found you.
    All the trials and tribulations we went through to find
    each other
    and to realize this is true...
    They're nothing compared to the ones we'll face to hold
    on to each other.
    And so I vow to love you even when you make me blue.

    From spending all her time striving to memorize lyrics to penning some of her own, she grew up.

    THE UNTOUCHABLE

    The untouchable,
    I'm unable
    to reach out to you.
    My fingers are desperate to hold you.
    My hand is up in the air, as high as it can go.
    My self-esteem is buried deep beneath the ground, as low as it can go.
    What if I can never feel you?
    What if I can't run my fingers along your scars?
    The marks on your polished surface,
    I want to make them disappear.
    I want to release you from the clutches of fantasy
    and let you out into the world of reality.
    I want to touch you, feel you and be you.

    Her Story

    It's that same old story again.
    The one where the guy does weird shit
    but nobody else seems to give a shit.
    The one where the girl said one wrong word
    and that's the only mistake in the whole wide world.
    He keeps his head held high and walks among the crowd
    pretending like he has nothing to be ashamed of
    while she becomes extra careful of every word she writes and utters
    when surrounded by friends and foes alike.
    But then again, why would he be ashamed?
    He has uncountable fake nobodies just like him that praise him for his million mistakes.
    The same nobodies who'll condemn her for one of hers.
    Please let me know what you want her to be.
    A nobody void of emotions like you?
    Or a woman with humane feelings she's supposed to have?
    She's damned if she doesn't and damned if she does.
    But, darling, he's not damned for anything at all.
    And I'm afraid that's just the way the world works.
    I don't think that it could work for you and me.
    But let's wait and see.

    How do you live with someone you hate?
    Tell yourself, "Honey, it's fate."

    You laughed as you watched me fall.
    That's when I knew you were just like them all.

    you would rather text him
    than text me
    you would rather choose to believe her
    than hear me out
    you would rather let this tear us apart
    than forget it and move on
    it's been a year
    and i'm not the same person
    neither are you
    you take your time to heal
    but i feel insecure
    at the thought of losing you
    to them
    i wish for a miracle
    that would make you realize
    everything isn't black and white
    there's more to it than what you see
    the mad woman who hated you isn't here anymore
    there's only the best friend who would fight tooth and nail
    to win you back
    i'll have your back
    if you just come back
    and trust me again

    I used to spend days yearning to click a selfie with you and here I am now, clearing out my gallery with my tears spattered all over your picture-perfect smile.

    Happily ever after! ❤✨

    He was mad in love as much as one could be
    She was the only girl he could see
    They spent their days without fearing an end
    They were not the ones who followed a trend
    He had only heard of true love in folklore
    But he had never seen it with his eyes before
    She never took feelings into consideration
    But she felt herself fall in love without caution
    They had their own little happy place
    Where they found true comfort and solace
    He took her to his favourite cafe by the bus stop
    She took him to her most favourite book shop
    They spent their days glued to each other
    Ticking everything off their bucket list together
    Until they finally picked out the most romantic place
    Where she stood on the right covered in lace
    With him on the left wearing his best suit
    They read their vows with everyone calling them cute
    They both said, "I do"
    And then they lived happily ever after as characters in fairy tales do

    Now that you are gone,
    I hardly pick up my phone.
    I used to text you with every breath I took,
    and now I smile as I go through our old texts like they're a book.
    We used to talk about how we couldn't live without each other,
    but now it seems like you don't even bother.
    With every "okay" you sent,
    I rest assured you would always be my friend.
    But here I am, writing a poem for you
    to tell you how much I miss you.
