Disclaimer: This is not a real proposal. This work is purely fictional, a piece of my imagination. (I don’t want my parents, my friends, or my dear relatives to freak out when they read this, hence the disclaimer) .
This poem would be my ideal proposal..how my ideal guy would propose to me. Or even better, how I would propose to myself (or to another girl), if I were a guy..
I know it probably doesn’t make sense to many. You may assume I’m crazy..
Long story short, no worries…My heart is still safe with me..😉
I won’t say I’ll love you always
For when I’m mad at you, I’ll hate you anyways
But after every fight we have in the day,
I’ll cuddle you to sleep, and sweet words I’ll say..
I won’t say I’ll pet you always
For when you do wrong, I’ll rebuke you anyways
But after every time you amend your mistake,
I’ll bring home your favorite cake..
I won’t say I’m perfect always
For I’m a human with emotions anyways
But every now and then, I’ll strive to be my best
So that you can smile and put your worries to rest.
I won’t claim to know your heartbeat
Better than a good ECG machine
But, I’ll always listen intently
For those frantic beats, when you’re not at ease.
I won’t say I need you, dear
For even without you here, I’ve lived for years
But, your presence puts to promising sleep
That nagging void that makes my soul weep.
If I’m the lotus that lives in the mud
You’re the Sun whose shine flood
My inner world, urging me to find
My essence, to be one of a kind.
Allow me too to be your light,
To guide you with my foresight.
Let me have a place in your heart
And let me share your inner art.
In the darkness of a melancholic night
I shall be there to hold you tight..
To whisper the words you wish to hear
So that you know you’ll be fine when I’m near.
Girl, I know you don’t need a man
To follow you around, or for you to stan
But, you would want a gentleman
As your partner in crime in your master plan.
Walking through an unworn road might be lonely
So, honor me with the right to keep you company,
The storms and struggles, we shall face boldly
Together, let’s make a meaningful journey.
