V - Vaidehi

I want to print out the words you have sent me. And allow my fingers to roam freely over them, the way I will never be able to do on your body. I want to feel the ridges and callouses, the indentations and mystery on them, discover it all for myself. For this is probably all I will ever have. Your words on a page. 

But no, I can't even risk that. What if someone sees those words and realize it's all you? That it has always been you. I mustn't. Like so many of secrets that are floating in this world, rocking in coffins, some rotting, shattering like bones, ours too must die a painful death. You have never been one to take risks, playing it safe, not once letting your mask slip. 

Calculated moves. 

We belong in different worlds, hoping to cross over the boundaries seems to me like wishing for the moon when I was a little girl. Our love is forbidden, after all. 

Linking this post to the A to Z Challenge.


  1. What a beautiful thought, Aathira! Forbidden love! Beautifully penned! :)

    Well written, Aathira

  3. Beautifully expressed. And a truth that probably exists in so many hearts

  8. So sad, why oh why is love forbidden? It is worse than not being loved, to have it and still not allowed to show it!

    1. It's better than not loving at all on the other hand, right?
