Love is in the air

PC: Unsplash

Poets are not hankering
to paint the paper black

We try 
to touch the pinkish Rose
But what you see 
Is the thorn ripping our skin apart.

You can espy us 
standing still unheard 
Amidst a thousands of voices around us
But what we heed is 
to the silence in chaos

They say ,
Love is in air
Maybe that’s because we’re struggling hard 
to breathe.

An unexplicable weight 
on our shoulders
Lower lip placed beside earlobe 
And whispering the name 
which we never wanted to hear.

Yes, it says your name
Your unuttered words
turned into kiss those days
And mine now wetting the paper
Where I am trying hard
to turn every drop on my pillow to pearl

But I guess
Death smells like you
That’s why it doesn’t wanted me
But I do.

Here I’m holding my suspire
plunging inch by inch

The last bubble from my mouth
Utters your name under water
Hope it reaches you and evinces 
“How much you mean to me”

yes, love is in the air.
