I know I am dying and
Tomorrow I may not be
But, today, here I am, my love,
By your side, clasping your trembling hand,
In sickness and in health,
Once, I promised thee.
You stripped me of my scarred skin
And looked through my injured soul
As you feel my pain through them
It hurt me even more.
Silence brimmed in your glaring eyes
When you delved in my profound wounds
So deep yet so painless
In you, quietly the anger tuned.
As you look through the shrivelled cuts
You read a silent tale
Of love and pain put together
In complete dissonance.
Your desperate kiss and feathery touch
Pleaded my soul to heal
And then, I knew I found the man
Amidst this beautiful surreal.
He, who promised to drown in me
To revive all my flaws
He will be the man, I know,
Who will love me in my chaos.
