Poems Of Love: There

She drove into the darkness
Lost moonlight through the mist
Trees glaring at her moving past
She held the imagination of an artist

It had been hours into the journey
Trying to chase the moon and leave it behind
But just like some memories of his
The moon wasn’t going to leave her alone tonight

The gears, steering was subconscious
One moment, two places

Lying next to him, her fingers through his hair
And this road, her car eating up the painted white lines
Not here, she wanted to be there.

— Gunjan Sethi

She

She’s the sunshine
The one that inspires me to rise every day, every moment
The one that lights up my world when it’s dim
The one that gives me warmth, on my coldest days
The one I can’t live without!

She’s the ocean
Calm, blue, bringing me peace
At times, powerful and energetic
To put me back on my feet.

She the universe
Holding everyone she loves
Close and with care
Listening to everything I have to say
With mindfulness and flair.

She a tree
Standing tall, bossomed with pride
For the land to which she belongs
She will, to her last breath, fight!

The Mask

Masks can be dangerous. Very dangerous.
We all will eventually become what we pretend to be.
When you’re alone, in the dark, peer through the crepuscular atmosphere around you and find yourself.
This is where you will feel, the real you. When no soul is in vicinity of yours, your mind will think, you. It will think your thoughts. Your own.
You will sit there, talking to yourself. And loving yourself.
But wait! Are you unable to do that? Are you unable to talk to your inner self? Unable to love yourself?

Has the mask walked you away, too far, from your very own soul?
Why did you let this happen, honey? It was so gradual, you didn’t even realize!
Always remember, from now on, the most important meeting you have is with yourself. The most beautiful moments you spend are with your body. The most interesting person to talk to is, yourself. It’s you.

It’s time you take the mask off.
It’s time you meet yourself.
It’s time you love yourself.
Once again.

Hey, you!

Hey, you! Yeah, you right there, reading this!

Do you know how beautiful you are?

Let me tell you.

You’re sitting right there with a heart, a mind, a soul, a body, that is a marvellous creation of Mother Nature. When she crafted you, she made sure you were perfect. She made sure you were beautiful. She made sure you were so magnificent, that even if the world went blind, you would have hundreds fallen for you.

Yes honey, that’s how gorgeous you are.

Take your make up off
Let your hair down
Take a breath
Look into the mirror, at yourself
Don’t you like you?
Cause I like you!

-Try, Colbie Caillat
