How beautiful it feels to be in love. Especially when you experience such feelings for the very first time. Its actually like a scene out of a movie. Everything seems just perfect.
Sharing with you my first brushes of “love”, a poem that I composed for “him” back in 2008. Here’s to those “young” and “in love”!
Courage of Desire
My heart skips a beat
jumping higher than its usual seat
tongue tied I’m rooted on the spot
searching for words I know not
having the courage of desire, my hopes are high
but you say something, I’m really very shy
Your glances at me makes the air warmer
Affectionate stares put me into the limelight
while still standing in a corner
I wander around
hoping to cross your way
As a smile from you
really makes my day
Your feelings for me are quite transparent
the desire to express them also very apparent
have courage my love, just say what you feel
this is real life
much unlike the reel….
Now when I’m reading it again, I think that this has a certain “maturity” in it. At least I understood real life was not as easy as the movies. Any who…Did you guys notice, the title of this poem eventually ended up as my site’s tagline!
It’s all about having the “courage of desire”
I think it takes huge amount of courage to express your heart’s true and deepest desires. And after all, that’s what our lives are all about…
Happy Valentine’s Day peeps. Cheers to being in love!
