From my kitchen to yours

From my kitchen to yours

Monday, February 24, 2014


I really did not know I had a piece of me missing..
Till I met you ..
I did not even know I was looking for you ..
Till you smiled into my eyes..
It's funny , but I never knew that I want to stay lost , till I found you..
You thawed my heart, I never knew was frozen..
I guess some people are just worth melting for..

You make me , "me"..
I do not really know, probably this may just be love..
It may or may not be..
I'm not really sure..

But if you shut your eyes, and think of me..
You will feel my arms around you..
You will hear me whisper your name..
And you may not want to admit it..
But life has just not been the same..

Sometimes I wonder, about you and me..
I wonder if you feel me walk to you..
Hold your face..
Kiss you deep..
Look into your eyes, where your secrets you keep..
You must know I can sometimes read you like my favorite book..
So I run my fingers through your hair..
And breathe you in ,without a care..
You must feel what my heart feels..
Because I'm really not shy about letting you know..
It's oozing out of every pore..
Fresh and beautiful, this dewy feeling that emits from deep down in my soul, I never knew existed, till you changed my world..

You changed my life..
You tipped my balance , and let my emotions spill..
You made me look at life , through a rainbow tinted rim..
You held on just enough ..
You let me go..
You called my name , when I walked away..
Was that to let me know, that you love me, but are not sure..
You made music out of thin air, that was fuel to my burning soul..
And held on to my every word, like we were the only two in this world..
You let me laugh, you let me cry..
You sometimes left me alone in the dark..
But every-time I walked into sunshine..
I would see you waiting , smiling, that lazy knowing smile, that actually is from deep down in my heart..
Its a lovely journey that has no start , but I know has an end..
So can we meander just a little while longer..
Watch sunrises fade into sunsets..
Let the stars on a moonless night take away our breath..
Get lost in mountains that have no names..
Just breathe into life, all over again..

And then follow a path that was never there..
We may get lost, you and me..
Not together probably..
So you wait for me..
While I search for you..
And we are both clueless about our existence , in this play of life as it unfolds ..
We were always meant to be..
Two souls..
Perfectly complete ..
Traversing through time and space..

And yet , we know, that this , is like a magical embrace..
That transcends, time lines and man made borders..
Beyond the realms of what we deem a reality..
Who is to say what is real and what's a dream..

I just know..
That , I do love you with all my might..
The rest does not matter..
I'm not here, to preach
Or to tell you what is right ..

I'm as lost as the next person you see..
But I'm happy I'm lost with you in this wondrous galaxy..
We meet , we smile, we laugh awhile..
We hold on ,we let go, we smile some more..
We walk together, we walk apart..

But I know you do feel me in the deepest corners of your heart..

And so we are free..
But attached to one another, by chains of destiny..

It's really late I have to go..
A new dawn is breaking thru..
But instead, I'm sitting here, with you on my mind, and a love that is pure..
That will ask no questions..
And tell you no lies..
But will love you..
Because, that's what this heart knows..
You can ask the droplets that fall out from my eyes..
That wash my heart..
And leads me to paradise ..
Where I see you sitting amidst trees , growing anew..

There is nothing , that I want..
Just to be nestled in you ...
That's all I ask ..
And that is my truth..

P.S. So I watched "HIGHWAY" last night..
and it has just stayed inside me..
Have not seen such a beautifully lyrical love story in a long time..
I'm just overawed.

We live in different phases of this beautiful moon..
You and me ..
Under a sky..
That sometimes is cobalt blue..
Sometimes sprinkled with stars..
Sometimes bathed in moon lite..
And blood red, on some nights..

Sometimes the moon hides himself...
Maybe so we can look inside us for that shiny light..

Have you ever wondered, what I feel when I see the moon..
Or how I sit and wait for it to reappear..
What it does to my soul..

It goes just to come back ..
Brighter than before..
And brings. the tide rushing back to shore..

Everything has to go away..
A wise person said,
But not before it has taught you , what it has to ..

Were we ever meant to be ..
We ?
I don't know .
Maybe not
At the end of the day
Why do we have to run with a flock ..
We were born solo and free..
An umbilical cord attached to destiny..
That would hold..
Life connected ..

So I guess
That's what renders the tale of you and me ..
Paths, journeys, moments not tied together...
But ravishingly free..

Does that mean , I don't really love you , and you don't love me ..

Actually nothing could be farther than the truth ..

You have taken up residence in my soul ..
Did you ask to be let in ???

By the time I realised , you had nestled deep inside my being..

I found my smile walking with you ..
And your grin on my lips..
And now everytime I look deep into me,  I just smile...

At how you so easily walked into my abode..
And made yours..

I did not put up a fight..
I did not even want..
I wanted to be taken away..
To a path...
Where  I could just be ..

And so I walk with the moon as my guide..
Sometimes, he just walks by my side..
And hangs onto every word I say..
Plays with the flicker of my eyes..
Inhales my every breath..
And then sometimes, he just goes away..
In those times, I wander under stars that shine bright ..
And crickets calling with all their might..
I sleep snuggled in a blanket of unanswered questions
Only to be woken up , by answers I have no questions for ..

I just know..
He will be smiling at me soon..
Because he needs for me to tell him stories that he missed..
And what I have been upto ..
And whether
I have been sun-kissed..

We smile , we walk and laugh at questions , that we will never answer..
He is just the moon you know ..
And is as clueless about what happens here on this soil ..

But as much as I love him..
And am happy bathed in his light ..
I know he has this dark side, just like me ..
Which we both may never see..
(So stark, naked and bare...)
I guess ...
We may never tread on darkness's side...
We don't dare..

So I smile bathed in the beams that emit from his heart
And feel all beautiful inside
Even if it is dark...

I love my man in the moon..
And he loves me..
And I really don't care...
If the world thinks...
This is not how it should be..

I'm fine with meeting him..
Just the way we do..
With open arms..
And bursting with love..
Under a starlit sky..
Bathed in moonlight ..
Just us two ..
Him & me..
