Almost Perfect...


I bask in wonder today, either you know perfectly what a woman wants to hear or what you say because you say, becomes perfect for my too eager ears.

How do you know what I want you to say when I don’t know myself what it is that I want to hear?
How do you manage to ruffle without a touch, say it all without saying much?

If I could just tell you how your words affect me, where oh where would I hide my face flushed in coy shame?
If you would know they have the power to hold me, how would you resist the ensnare?
If you had some idea of how long something you said can stay in my head, would you say it more or sparingly so?

And some days when you walk with me gently holding my hand, whispering sweet nothings, I walk over the mist with your words like a soft breeze playing with my tresses. Every step redeeming me as though I own the ground I tread on, I fly higher than the birds and feel lighter than the frothy cloud and I breach my own horizons.

For when your reason to smile, smiles at you, you smile at the world.
I don’t know then what I like more-to want to need you or to want you to need me like you do.
I ask you of what you think, you smile and say, “What happens in the mind, stays in the mind!” I beam back at the games you play.

And some days I see you as the question and some days as the answer...
And some days you call me the poetry and some days you transform me into a poet...
And some days I become your thirst and some days you leave me so thirsty...

You definitely left me with a lot of thought., Ma'am.
I like the imagery. A very simple usage of words, it is.
I read you're a teacher. My mother's too - and she too write, for self-enlightenment.
I read your post about your thoughts on Women.
you've some natural talent there, Ma'am! =)

Jenny said...

It would a miracle to find someone who would understand me like that. Would forward this to hubby dearest and play some games myself :-D

Beautifully expressed her thoughts, and glad you are blogging, although I would love to read you a lot lot more often :-)

Beautiful! I think you can edit the post title and remove that 'almost'.

I think, such should be the love all get to keep. Don't know if the lover has a golden gift of words, or it is love that makes everything a lover says so musically appeasing. Guess, it is a little bit of both.

All day long
I can hear people
Talking out loud
But when you hold me near
You drown out the crowd
(The crowd)
Try as they may
They could never define
What's been said
Between your
Heart and mine

Beautiful post!

Take care

Hi Suruchi Ma'am !

Yeah, I'm new to your blog. I stumbled across it while following you on Twitter. And, may I say, you are one talented and amazing writer. Whatever be the topic, your posts are a delight to read. They are fun, witty, and, of course, filled with 'gyan' You make me want to turn to you every time I need advice or suggestions, even though I do not know you at all. Weird, innit? Or, maybe not.

Keep blogging and remain the awesome person you are ! :)

Love.

Suruchi said...

@Tanvi,

Please feel free to ask me anything any time. I'll be glad to help however I can. :-)

Renee said...

That's so nice of you. You just made my day (night :D)

Er, there are a couple of things I'd like to ask you about. So, if it's okay by you, I could drop in a mail if I have your e-mail id. :)

Suruchi said...
