What Is?

Poem By Safiyyah Manjra

I have boys messaging me saying they love me.
I have boys delivering sushi at my place at midnight willingly.
I have boys who look over me when I'm alone.

It's not that I am not loved.
I am loved so much to the extent I break hearts of love,
Gifted from above.

Do you see the damage I have done?
I am the only wrong one.

The reason being,
None of them are you which is condescending.

Sometimes I wish I would be able to love those who love me.
Maybe then I would gain half of what I am willing to give you freely.

Sometimes I feel so connected to someone I walk away.
I am afraid I won't stay.
I might just hurt them someday.
I don't ever want to hurt anyone in anyway.

One day I will risk and fall in love.
I will smile,
Give him all that I've been saving for quite a while.
My smiles, my laughter,
My first kiss- a night which I like to call my last forever.

If that him isn't you,
I hope he would appreciate it all as you would.
As I would be giving him all that I never could,
Given you.
I am sorry in advance if that's what I do.

Fail With Repeat.

The pain of the heart.
After trying something which once kept you together.
Is now tearing you apart.

Feed Together

I always have this urge to feed someone,
Be someone they can rely on,
Take care of them and feel as one.

Before Sleep.

Those warm showers at night,
Which comfort us before sleep.

The kiss,

Kiss Me

Kiss me,
Beneath the stars in the cold night,
That I may stand strong and not fright.
Brush your fingers through my hair,

Never Ending Love.

I want you to really say those words this time,
The ones which make my mind intertwine.

It has been too long with this tension.

No Wrong Or Right

That is why it is good to like someone,
Who resembles no one.

Then you like the person for their true character,
