vow

oh i cannot promise you stars, that glistens through the night
but oh my love, i can make sure that your smile is the one, that oh is the brightest of all of them

oh i cannot present you with the jewels that oh my love would fit your fingers,
but oh i can adorn you, with the pearls that oh my love i handpicked

oh i cannot take you for those starred dinners, my love;
but oh i can cook all that you love,
only to then feed you, while oh you’d be sitting on my lap

oh i cannot have a bouquet at your doorstep every day;
but oh my love, i can plant your favorites on you; every morning

oh i cannot always offer you the best, that there exists

but oh my love;


i can vow

to always be there,

by your side

so as to love,


you and only you.


with love.

    You deleted your site? I didn’t realize you had two of them or am I confused?

    I am so so so glad you are back online. The other day I saw you like one of my posts and when I went to visit yours the site was gone. I was devastated to see that. Happy it’s back. I did not know that was possible. I was thinking of deleting all of mine (in hopes of finally getting offline) but I can’t seem to do it yet. Felt very final. And I miss everybody!!! Anyway, as always, lovely, lovely poetry. xoxo

      hello!
      it was probably because of the change in the site address. and i wouldn’t recommend deleting your site. you might end up regretting it :)
      and thankyou so much for reading. means a lot!

    @srijan Just emotions penned? Or a promise you intend to keep?
