How does it feel like when you fall in love with someone? We’ve all grown up on a mental diet of Bollywood love stories, which makes us believe that the world suddenly becomes brighter when we are in love. The flying dupattas, the sound of violins playing in the background, the butterflies in our stomach, and what not – we are happier than we have ever been.
But guess what, everything that we have heard from Bollywood about love isn’t all real. Love is all about the union of two souls and making all their seemingly impossible dreams come true. So here’s a poem that captures everything a girl feels, from the time she develops a crush on someone, to when she realizes she is in love, ending on the point where she can’t hold it back anymore and opens up her heart to her beloved.
“Falling in Love”
I don’t know what he does to me-
All I know is that its heaven.
But why do I feel incomplete without him-
Is that my heart that he has taken?
Whenever he looks into my eyes
Whenever he smiles at me that way
Why does it feel so very different?
Why do I have nothing at all to say?
No one has ever made me feel that way
I have no clue what has happened to me.
My world now seems to revolve around him
He has become the air that I breathe.
Why do I crave to hear his voice?
Why do I crave that inadvertent touch?
Why do his words seem like music to me?
Why do I need him so bad, so much?
I am used to the sleepless nights now
And when I close my eyes, I dream of him.
My heart tells me I am in love with him
I got no clue, but that’s what it seems.
He probably thinks I am just a friend
But the trouble is, I don’t feel the same.
Every moment of my existence is just about him
The only word engraved on my heart is his name.
He might be too good to be mine
But that’s what my heart fails to understand.
Those eyes render me breathless, speechless.
He is like an angel from an unknown land.
Everything I do now is just for him.
That dreamy stare renders me breathless.
He takes my name and enslaves my heart
‘Coz, that beautiful smile renders me helpless.
I can’t precisely describe my feelings for him
I don’t know if it’s love or worship.
He cast a spell on me and became my world.
Now all that matters is his love, his friendship.
But now I can’t take it anymore
It’s time he knows and understands how I feel.
No matter how unattainable my heart has been
You unknowingly conquered it, before you I kneel.
You may or may not know what I feel, my love.
But I’ve loved you like I’ve loved no one before.
And since your happiness is all I’ll live for
I’ll love you as no one can, I assure you.
So please tell me that you love me the same
Make my life better than it could ever get.
Through the mightiest storms, the darkest days
I’ll be there beside you till my very last breath.
