First Flush

I stop mid-guffaw

to find your eyes on me

and though I am not the blushing kind

I feel heat travelling up my neck

I look away flustered

but find my gaze drawn to you

you are still looking my way

is it mere caprice or an irrefutable truth

and I swear my heart somersaults

you say something

but the roar in my ears is loud and drowns your voice

I breathe in shallow bursts

none of our friends notice anything

with trembling fingers I gather my books

hugging them to my errant heart

I quietly try to slink away

Before my eyes can give my heart away.

  2. Mere mehboob tujhe Meri mohabbat ki qasam
    Phir Mujhe nargisi aankho ka sahara de de
    Mera khoya hua rangeen nazara de de

    Your poetry reminded me of this epic song❤️

    Beautiful ❤️

  3. This is something most everyone can relate to on some level. But what makes this beautiful is the way you’ve depicted that feeling of vulnerability and being smothered by a tornado.
