I remember looking at you and feeling everything.
I remember looking at you and feeling nothing.
I was terrified both of the times.
From the moment you asked me to read
you a story, I started writing ours.
Do you know how it feels to rely on
someone to feel complete? I do.
Did you ever love someone so much
that you carried a piece of them
everywhere you went? I did. I do.
We were a continent apart, yet I could still
feel the universe in me shifting places with yours.
Did I forget to tell my heart that I am
moving on, or did it forget to tell me
that it will forever be somewhere else?
It’s a tricky business wanting something
as much as I wanted you. For a long time,
I defined myself by the longing I felt
for you, and now that I have you in my
arms, I don’t know who I am.
All I know is this: I belong to you,
even if I am not near you. You said,
‘patience’ to me once and I am saying
it back. Wait for me, until I find my
way back to you. To us. I always do.
Poet’s note –
‘Like Crazy’ is a movie that is very close to my heart. This is a poem that defines the relationship between the main characters.
