“from where i stand, you are the only star” – Nayana Nair

Now that we have buried all the clocks,
a day passes only when our eyes meet again,
night comes only when we say goodbye.
And when I walk away from the shade of her smile,
I think that I am forgetting something,
something that would have made me sad.
But her name, her words have grown
ferociously, violently
on whatever I once was.
So it doesn’t matter I guess
what kind of person I was
till I can continue to be the person she loves.

  2. To me, “we have buried all the clocks” beautifully expresses a timeless sentiment of lovers.

    Shameless pun intended. πŸ˜€

  3. Seriously, this one is rich in striking images that seem to perfectly express the feelings of a passionate lover. I especially love the image of feeling like you are forgetting something when you part from her.
