The distance

It’s not okay to be near you but not able to hold you,

Even worse is that when I can’t whisper sweet words only meant for your ears to hear,

When I can’t show how much I love you –

Or the way I have to act as if we are only friends,

Still your presence close to mine is a relief,

A happy feeling which keeps me at peace.


Sharing the feelings growing within us,

How beautiful isn’t it to realise the crux;

Your silence gets deep down to my core,

No , I can’t stop the grief knocking at the door-

Pain, insecurity is laid barren infront of me,

As if all the positivity of ‘ours’ escapes just before I see,

This happens when you are silent,

Turning my mind into a storm which is turbulent.
