He is mesmerized by her charm
Her laughter like the tinkling of
Whispers made in secret at night
The smile seems to radiate love
As he tries to understand her life
The reasons that keep her going
Makes him wonder the strength
She carries in her petite figure
Like a magnet she is surrounded
By people who wish to know her
But those eyes hold the deepest
Secrets he wishes to know but
Nobody ever gets close enough to
Understand her as a person for
All they see is a persona, a figment
Of their dreams which is obscure
He sighs wishing if he could feel
The softness of her hair flowing
Like waves of an ocean that pull
You towards themselves but knows
He is just another number for her
He hears her footsteps approaching
His table like she does everyday
Greeting him and giving him a hug
Dazzled by her perfect features and
Her too good to be true life, wondering
If this was a castle of sand only that
She carried gracefully on her shoulders
Or was she hiding behind something

Picture Perfect

She makes you wish
You could have her life
That sharp pitch laughter
The glittering eyes that
Hold the world like it’s
The key to wonders you
Could only wish to touch
Her smile lights up the
Surrounding like hope in
The darkest alleys of life
But sometimes when you
Sit down with her and look
Into her eyes they remind
You of a history lesson
That felt unreal enough to
Make you uneasy and you
Want to dig deeper to find
Out the real story that hides
In those eyes but she looks
Away too quickly each time
Shutting you out to a place
From where her life looks as
If its a master piece of an
Artist’s life time of work
An enigma you try to know
Picture perfect‘ is all that
Comes to mind watching her
While desperately wanting
To tear off the layers in her
Smile to know the real her

Favourite Mistake

She was the hope you
Starved for in the perpetual
Madness surrounding you
Consuming you completely
In silence you looked for her
Reaching out blindly calling
Out to her promising words
You never intended to keep
But she fell for them anyway
Deliberately stepped in a trap
You thought was smartly set
But she played along with you
Smiling to herself and you kept
Wondering what kept her happy
Never knowing that the reason
She did it all gladly was you
While it was a dark hunger you
Felt when you thought of her
She was your temporary thing
You were her favorite mistake

The Dance

They both kept looking at at each other
As they performed salsa on the stage
Their movements precise and accurate
They aren’t just dancing to the music
They’re birds freed from the cage
He circles her then pulls her closer
Melting away the distance that exist
She glows as a firefly in a starry night
Their secret smile tells a story hidden
That nobody is allowed to know of
Their eyes exchange words unsaid
As he leads her to middle of the stage
The audience watches stunned by how
The two people were creating magic
As they glided and skated across the floor
They rose and fell together like waves
Crashing against the shore exuding power
Claiming their territory with a fire unseen
