I Wish You Would (Poem #33)

She asked you to paint the town red
you took off in less than a minute
and did exactly what she said

When once she fell silent
because of something that you’ve done
you tried to cure her in an instant
you got on your knees
with just a snap of her hand

That was 6 months ago
and you are mine now
but still I wonder
how could such thoughts haunt me
even when I am wrapped by your arms

“atleast you’re with me”
I would say
and then mumble sadly, “physically”

You never did to me
everything you did to her
“I wish you would”
to myself I would say
“but if you wouldn’t
I’d still love you anyway”

There was one night when the rain poured so hard, and i didn't want it to stop. Weird, because i was afraid and amused by the sound of the rain and thunder. The sound of it made me less alone that night. The next day i woke up to find my collection of journals soaked. I keep it near the window to make sure no one could read it. The writings can still be read but i was devastated by the damage. I wanted it preserved but i don't want it published. Still amused by the rain but afraid of the wrath it could bring to my journals, i created this blog.
