I do have too many things to say to you but
sometimes the words don’t come out right.
But I promise to do my best to empty my chest
before it got blown up with my bottled feelings.
I have wondered on what is it in you that makes
me feel the way I do.
I have wondered on what kind of spell you have
on me that others don’t have.
I have wondered on the strength of your smile
that constantly pierces the morrows of my bones.
I have wondered on the touch of your hands that
send me flying into the plane of bliss.
What is it about you that I can’t have a
moment without thinking of you?
I have almost introduced myself as Amina because
all I think of is you.
If I should say that I understand myself any more, I lied.
If I should say that I am not confused, I lied.
If I should say that I have seen a thing like this, I lied.
If I should say that I am still the same, I lied.
If I should say that it is infatuation, I lied.
This is totally beyond my experience and imagination.
The truth is that I have lost myself in your world and
I am scared of what my life will be without you.
I feel blessed to have found you.
I feel you in every air that I breathe.
You are all that a woman should be.
I feel the completeness that scares the shit out me.
These are strange feelings that threatens my ego but
I am loving it with all my heart and soul.
I hope you feel the same way.
