“Dreaming of Love” – Nayana Nair

tumblr_static_f1431u1da28sogs0s0ccccoc8

If we were not here,
if we were not conveniently together,
but lived in places far apart
with only a bleak memory,
our companion,
the proof of our time together.
If we could not hear
each other’s voice everyday
but carry each other’s whispers
in the folds of our skin.
Do you think
we could have known each other better?
Do you think
we could have loved better,
By being far away?

These arms that ache
by holding each other tighly,
in some other time,
in some other place,
may have yearned for a mere touch.
In that world,
I imagine myself
sitting in my backyard.
Looking at the never ending rows
of trees that I cannot name.
And wonder if our separation
will be as long as the life of these trees.
Will these silent friends of mine, these trees,
in this lifetime
know my happiness to have found you at last
as they have known my long wait?
I feel in some other world,
we exist like that,
our love exists like that.
I feel they must be dreaming of love
that we have right now.

About Nayana Nair

Hi, I am Nayana Nair. I'm 23. Just a crazy girl who has tons of things to talk about....not much organized thoughts sadly. I like to talk about everything...mostly..every conversation of mine turns into a monologue.... So I decided I should start writing a blog..rather than chat.... I'm very much passionate about music, psychology and literature.... Moderate interest in science..... I always want to be a writer (and also a teacher)..But I don't think I have the skills required...this blog is just my attempt at becoming the writer I always wanted to be...Blogging for few years, I have realized I am more of a poet (although, I am not sure that I am good enough for that label)...I hope I realize more about myself through writing. Thanks for dropping by!! Hope I didn't disappoint. :)

      I do like anime. But I have not seen much. πŸ™‚ there is lot that I have yet to see.
      This pic is from an anime ‘La Corda’ . liked it a lot. That’s why.
      Last anime I watched was Death Note’. Right now I am watching ‘Bleach’ and ‘FairyTail’ simultaneously. (As you can see, I am pretty new to it….But I love whatever I have seen. ) Anime is really awesome.
      Which is your favourite anime?

  4. in the second stanza, you wrote ‘were’ instead of ‘we’. How beautiful is it that it is the same stanza that has the boldest imagery. I loved this poem so much
