Did I say I Love You?

July 1, 2010



I look at you and smile

At that goofy grin on your face

Or you laughing at your own joke

In your typical style


I call and ask you

Whether you are all right

After a bad bout of cold

Or some disappointment new


I text you and think

Whether you will reply

Or just hit the delete button

Or send it to the archive’s sink


I meet you and feel

The same sensation within

And unfamiliar fluttering

Of my heart still


I touch you and sense

Your mood and mind

Especially if you are lost

In a web of thoughts dense


I think of you and know

Despite all that I mentioned

And the reason of it all

Did I say I love you?

Poetry was always my first love and I am sad to see how few of them I write these days! This was attempted and completed in 10 minutes flat! I am mighty pleased πŸ™‚ It’s a different form of rhyming – abca. Hope you like it πŸ™‚

P.S. Is it too mushy?? Is it mushier than "Awaiting Love" and "Let me"??

P.P.S. Too many love-shove around me (in others’ lives) which acted as inspiration. Don’t get any other ideas! ;-)

      You never read the disclaimer, did you? πŸ˜‰ Friends around me are getting hitched, which was the inspiration behind ‘such flow of thought’ πŸ™‚

      Do you know that a good poet should be able to write a romantic poem when not in love and sad poems when happy and vice versa???? πŸ˜‰ You get the drift, right πŸ™‚
