Stay for Me

Charing Cross Road, 1937 by Wolfgang Suschitzky

Time's running out 
My feel fly over the ground
In the rain, over muddy puddles
My skirt stained with dirt 

Yet I'm hasty 
I can't afford to lose you
I need to tell you 
Before you go 

Just how much you mean to me 
Oh, why did I wait so long
Is it because the thought 
Of losing you was suddenly unbearable?

Or was it because you were never mine 
To begin with?
Don't leave me all alone here
With just your memories for company

Bridge this distance between us
Take me away to another world
I'm almost there
Stay, stay for me...

  1. Yet another beautiful poem, Aathira. Liked these lines in particular-

    "Just how much you mean to me
    Oh, why did I wait so long
    Is it because the thought
    Of losing you was suddenly unbearable?"

    There are times when this thought brings with itself immense pain and desperation.

    1. Indeed. Some stories are painfully lived. Thanks so much, Shaifali!

  2. Wonderful Aathira! Beautifully written.

  3. romantic and beautiful! :-)

  4. Oh, it's a poignant piece of writing. It has touched me in a certain way... Keep writing!

  5. Yes, I feel the urgency. I've been there...rushing to make a romantic about
    your heart in your throat.

    1. I hope your story ended on a happy note :) Thank you!
