What If I Tell You I Love You…
By Shivam Tomar
What if I tell you I love you and you leave, With the ideas that we had, of moments happy and sad, Or with our promise of togetherness And your fear of love being a passing fad.
I dread this thought and often a lot, With wilful candor bringing extreme unease. Should I scream, shout and let it all out Or close my heart and have my peace? But to be, I’ll stay the same
And rebuild all the memories; Invoked with the utterance of your name, till the time, when either me or I become insane.
What if I tell you I hate you and you believe.
Letting all that we built shatter to ground, In a world where emotions tread carefully With rational minds around and set the course of regret,
While we reason the ifs And also the certainty of how and why We met.
I know, It’ll be hard for both of us To fathom the misery,
Incited by the buts Yet we move downstream, afraid to challenge the quo And protect our dream, of us, as one.
Should I scream, shout and let it all out and allow our love to valiantly teem?
Oh! But, What if I tell you I love you and you leave What if I tell you I hate you and you believe.
