Close to my Heart

June 11, 2010

disconnected from the world tonight
with my mind blank and seemingly shut tight
this emptiness that i feel all around me,
seems all the more familiar;

choking me from the inside,
my heart bundled up in my throat,
i could not say a word,
speechless, is all that i have become;

not a long left before this agony turns into ecstasy,
each day seems a bit longer than the previous one,
yet each moment that takes a eon to pass by,
makes it all worthwhile;

shivers rush up my spine
as the midnight air gently caress past,
i lay on my back and count the stars
twinkling in the moonlit sky, all alone;

why do we live
so far apart
i don’t know
but you will always be…..
Close to My Heart!!!

    wow this is beautiful poetry

    I love these lines –

    “I may not always be here for you,
    I may not always say, ” I love you ”
    But in my thoughts, my heart and soul,
    You will always be my knight in shining armor.”
