I feel your presence right next to me

Yet you are a world away.

Not because you don’t love me

But because the world around me

Doesn’t allow me to love you.


I want to tell you I love you

But time loses patience

And leaves me with regret

Of not acting, not stepping up

Not being braver for one extra second

Before you leave.


I want to tell you I love you

But people come and go

And never give me a chance

Of a moment alone with you.

I like how everyone else disappears

When I am talking to you

But reality is that they are always around

And eventually the one disappearing is you.


I want to tell you I love you

But everyone else says

“Love is just a distraction

You need to study and study”

And unfortunately

They are the puppeteers of my life

They write the unspoken laws

Which I must abide.


So, I want to tell you I love you

But I can’t — I want to — but I can’t!

I hope one day

You might stumble upon my words

Engraved upon this poem

Perhaps you will read them

Deeper every time, into my soul

Just like how your voice always touches

The depth of my heart.


Then maybe

You can tell me

Against the judgement

Against the rumors

Against the criticisms

Against the disapprovals

You can tell me


The two words —

“Me too.”
