“I love you…”

"I love you", he said,
"Don't...", I replied,
"Don't say these words
Until...
Every cloud shapes my face,
Until...
Every constellation spells my name,
Until...
You become speechless in my presence,
Until...
You're driven to madness by my absence...

Don't...

Don't say these words
Until...
No other words seem to express
What your heart feels,
Until...
The universe ceases to exist
Whenever I'm near,
Until...
The Earth stops spinning
Whenever I'm here,

Don't...

Don't say these words
Until...
It becomes a truth
Your heart cannot keep...

Don't say these words
Until...
They become deadly, the volcanoes erupting
Within you, for me...

Don't say these words
Until...
You stumble upon the letters
Trying to make sense of it all...

Don't...

Don't say these words
Until...
Every second
Of every minute
Of every hour
Of every day,
There's a song in your heart
Murmuring my name.

Ever since I was a little girl, writing has been my passion and my escape. I wanted a platform where this small voice - that usually dares only be heard by the notebook in the corner of my room - can reach out to the world. I have always been fascinated by this ability we have to turn a transient thought or feeling into something that could last forever and that could be communicated to any other member of our species who would stumble upon it. After all, we're one and the same, aren't we? Our hopes, dreams, fears, pain, joy are what make us who we are. This page is for you out there reading it, so I invite you to delve into this notebook as if it were your own. Welcome to my notebook. Many thanks to the creator of this page who made my dream come true.
