The Awakening

If I had never laid eyes on you
seeing you wouldn’t have made any difference

If I hadn’t spent sleepless nights
trying to feed the desires you captivated
touching you wouldn’t have been cathartic

If I had never come this far
and given up at the first sign of failure
I’d never have looked into your eyes
or touched your face

I couldn’t go back to not knowing you
and all my unrest has magnified
for your presence is what I crave
your love, a safe harbour in my ocean.

Further, My Heart

Past, present, future
You were meant for something better
Dragged down, walked over, missed out on
You’re still here

Chin up, arms open, eyes sparkle
What matters is what you’ve learnt
When everything fails to last
You’ll still go on

The infinite, the temporal, the futile
Hold on to what you yearn
Embrace what you hid away
You’re almost there

Hopes, wishes, dreams
From crutches we are weaned
The tip of your peak’s in view
You’ll pull through
