How did I not know?

How did I not know?

When I look at you, All I can focus on is,


Your innocent smile,

Your sparkly shy eyes,

Your baby scent,

Your tender voice,

How did I not know?

I can talk to you about anything,

And you understand,

You console me,

You are always there

Like a silent star,

Radiating hope like it’s nothing. How did I not know?

When you ask me about


I always ask for more time,

Always deter from it,

But, you always smile,

And let go.

To your gentle heart,

How could I?

Am I just calling this confusion, Because I am scared to

call you mine? Or because I just feel


But, I will always, always,

Yearn for your company, and

Envy anyone you are with.

So I guess,

I am indeed in,

What they call,


With you. Now I know.

Did you have the same feelings?

How did I not know?

How did I not know that you would break me into billion pieces, strand me on a desert full of dried up tears as the storm of insecurities charge up on me from the horizon...
