Breakthrough

This is a collaborative work with a very talented poet, who also happens to be my partner, My Muse.

Breakthrough

It’s been a long day.
It’s been hectic
It’s been tiring
But the only thing that keeps me going
Is the anticipation that you’re waiting for me at the end of the line.

You’re a symphony
A beautiful love note
Dipped in sweet promises, roses.
I count sun’s breaths
Dissolving into the tangerine sky,
Waiting for you to come back home.

It’s a proverbial race
And you’re my grand prize
And I’ll stop at nothing short of you
Because I want that sweet, sweet embrace of you.

You shall stay here in
Warm arms, the sweet petrichor
The fragrance of ours, in coral hues.
I keep aside my naive insecurities
Dissolving into our mauve skies,
Waiting for you to come back home.

I know you love me too,
Watching me from far out there,
Rooting for me,
Deep within, you too want me to win
You keep the fire alive within me,
And I hope to keep the fire alive within you
And at the end of it all,
We’ll continue the race of life,
together.

Here, fancy rings don’t glitter
As much as we, our beats do
Together, hand-in-hand, in love.
I know we’ll breakthrough
Dissolving our longings into twilight
And veiled nights.
I wait for you to come back home.
