A trip to insanity

Before my lungs could breathe...

Before my throat could permit...

Before my lips could part...

The words withered on my tongue

The words were thus;

"I love y….."

Or do I?

Or did I?

Maybe I'd rather not!!...

My skin aches so badly from missing your touch

Each follicle pricks against my heart

How do I cure this malady called love?

I've tasted its insanity and felt every pang of its pain 

It has bruised my heart to gold

And melted my brain to sand

So I'm left here, again,

Stuck in my head, pondering

"If I choose this day to take a trip to this insanity

Tell me, will I ever come back sane?"

The moon witness' us,
At the blouse of tensed sunset,
Love, the name we bare.

And crazy they went
Vows and promises they put on head
14/2 marks their death

Dear Valentine

Val' as you are,
Val' as it is,
Val' I engage.

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
