Jealous

13th in the series of “tell me your song, I’ll write you a poem”

Jealous



I’m jealous of your white fitted shirt
and how it hugs your body so tight
so tight it gives u warmth and comfort
and how it hears your heartbeat
so gentle, so sweet
how it graciously covers your
broad shoulders, I so want to boldly
hold and lean my head on
anytime, anywhere
I’m jealous, I’m just jealous
It should’ve been me
“cos I want you all to myself”

I’m jealous of your car seat belt
and how it protects you in the street
how it hears you sing along with our spotify
playlist songs, how it feels your right hand’s caress out in the highway,
down the road
how you slowly, gently buckle up
before each long drive
and how, oh dear just how
it bears witness to your lonesome
sunset drive
I’m jealous, I’m just jealous
It should’ve been me
“cos I want you all to myself”

I’m jealous of your tight
faded jeans and how it holds you up
up to your very core
how it admires your body strength
as you walk tall and steady
every step of your way every day
and how it gives you the command
of a perfectly strong, yet gentleman
I’m jealous, I’m just jealous
It should’ve been me
“cos I want you all to myself”


so baby next time
no white fitted shirt
no car seat belt
no tight faded jeans
just me, you and
the shadow of our love

Tell Me

12th in the series of “tell me your song, i’ll write you a poem”

Tell Me

the roses are dead
their brown petals are curling and stiff
with stems and leaves drooped
and they look so lonely
and sad in the middle
of the garden
with grass in yellow brown
as rubble blows down
like autum leaves free falling,
helplessly to nowhere
and I, can’t help but wonder
‘cos it sure feels like that
when you’re gone


the little bird is dying
lying upside down on the ground,
wings flapping, struggling to get up
she is beautiful
she is immaculate
her eyes close
her beak open
in a final silent call,
then shut
the quiet presence of death
my heart aches
and I, can’t help but wonder
‘cos it sure feels like that
when you’re gone

I will be like the dying roses
I will be like the dying little bird
I will be witnessing the quiet presence of death
for it sure feels like that
when you’re gone

so spare me my quiet death my dear
and tell me, tell me, oh please tell me
how do i live without you?

Don’t Let Go

10th in the series of ” tell me your song, i’ll write you a poem”

Don’t Let Go


I’ve met you back in time when you and i were young
we had our shares of troubles
and our own separate lives
though i knew i needed you to be by my side
but i kept it cool so you won’t let go
and i thank God for that one time
one time, one moment
when you handed over
a note for me to read
then you smiled
your sweetest smile
and from that day on my love
our lives changed

I knew i loved you then
‘cos everytime you smiled at me
I saw our lives together, a life of love
as we grew old together, with kids
dancing and hanging around
as you silently watched them with awe
and with blissful joy
and i, looked at you, and thanked God for that one time, one time, one moment
when you handed over
a note for me to read
then you smiled
your sweetest smile
and from that day on my love
our lives changed

I can’t believe how lucky I am to have you to love, to hold and behold ’till we get older
and I swear my love, not even death can break us apart, for when we are gone
I promise to find you even in the life after
I know I will see you and you will be there to hand over a note for me to read
then I will thank God, for that one moment again, where you will smile
your sweetest smile
so we can start our lives together
even after life
‘cos baby I love you
so please say “you won’t let go”

no matter how many times we will be apart,
we’ll always have a brand new start

Every Bit Of Me


8th in the series of ” tell me your song, i’ll write you a poem”

Every Bit of Me


how do i start
to tell you the least part
of my undying love and admiration
for all that you are and all that you do
maybe i’ll begin with how i love your
notoriusly brilliant mind transcensding
over into words, as you speak
some hate it, I know
but i love every bit of your notoriety
” what’s goin on in that beautiful mind”
that, I wouldn’t know


I love every  bit of you when you are ranting
‘cos baby it makes me adore you in a way no one else will see how beautiful you are
in your most awkward moment
I love every bit of your ugliness
“cos your crazy, and I’m out of my mind”
that’s how much crazy we can both be


I’m not perfect, I won’t deny
I may be very difficult to deal with at times
but my love, you love me and all of my imperfections
you’re the kind of risk,  I’d gladly without a doubt take
“cos all of me loves all of you”
I swear, my list could go a long way
but i love you the most ‘cos you took a chance on me, you took that one big leap
of loving me


I love every bit of you
in the same way you love
every bit of me

Little Heaven On Earth

fourth in the series of “tell me your song and i’ll write you a poem”


Little Heaven On Earth

it used to be just a dream,
a dream of me finding someone to love
love as told by many, love like no else,
love that will make me see sunshine in the mornings, butterflies in the garden and a love that will make me see
God as a jolly bearded old man

then you came along
my world, oh, my world dear
has turned out to be more beautiful than ever
the birds are chirpier
the grass is greener
the rainbow is brighter
and the church bells ringing joyously
as if its Christmas everyday

it used to be just a dream
our dream of spending the days
and the nights together
and of sealing our love,
our blissful love by virtue of
one true blessed holy matrimony
and from that day on forward
we promised to love each other
in sickness and in health
for richer and for poorer
as death may not even take our love away


I swear my love, I love you more each day
it feels like a little heaven on earth
with you beside me,
each and every waking hours of my life
“and throughout the night,
I wanna hold you tight
I wanna wake up with you”


and I thank God, I thank God
for you, for the many nights with you
and the many waking mornings with you
‘cos my love, waking up with you beside me
feels like a little heaven on earth


our love is dawning, always, just as we wake up together each morning

Just Like This

third in the series of “tell me your song and i’ll write you a poem”


Just Like This


I love Greece
with its glorious beaches
and mountain ranges
I love Greece
with its history
and its mythology,
as a child I learned
that Apollo is the God of
music, poetry and art
but I adore Zeus
with his power to rule
all the Gods and men
his mighty prowess made him
the king of Olympus

But I see no God in you.

I love fairy tales and
happy ending,
with Cinderella
topping my list
and how she
found her lovely
prince charming in the end

But I see no prince charming in you.

Nah, I never really wish you
to be any of those powerful
Greek Gods, nor be like
Cinderella’s perfect
prince charming


I see no Greek God in you
I see no prince charming in you

But baby, I want you,
“just something I can turn to
somebody I can kiss”
that perfect “spider man and Mary Jane”
kind of kiss, or that “happy ending”
“boy meets girl” movie moment kiss

“I want something just like this”

Request sent in via IG by the lovely @manahil_mansha, to cheeer up her dearest friend

How Lonely Can You Be?

it has been cold and lonely,
how lonely can it be?
how lonely can you be?
that I wouldn’t know for sure
but your eyes,
your eyes
your eyes my dear
never will it lie
I see your pain
and I feel your agony
cheer up my dearest
let me take you to a place
a place where your eyes
will speak of a thousand joyful moments
your heart will cry out for a thousand and more wonderful memories, and your mind
your mind, will finally find its happy thoughts, its restful respite
and its quiet refuge
my dearest friend take my hand
and together,
“let’s fly to the moon
let’s play among the stars
let’s see what spring is like
on Jupiter and Mars”

“In other words, hold my hand”
you’ll be fine, with me,
together

A Hundred Million Love Songs

A Hundred Million Love Songs


there are over a hundred million

love songs 

and I could dedicate each for you 

each and everyday

for you are my greatest love

the poetry I write

and the melody of my heart



there are over a hundred million

love songs

and I could sing each one for you

each and everyday

for when I think of you

I think of the greatest love song

ever written


there are over a hundred million

love songs

and I could mash them up for you

each and everyday

for when I see you

I see nothing but a collection of the 

greatest hits the world 

has fallen in love with over the years



there are over a hundred million

love songs

and I could have them as our song

each and everyday

for you remind me of not one

not just one , but of all the beautiful

love songs of yesteryears and today


‘cos baby “no one’s ever touched me like the way you touch me”, that for me 

is pure magic, pure love

in a song, your song, my song

our song

(You Are the Love of My Life -by Roberta Flack, George Benson)


This is one of the most iconic love songs of the 80s. I was a little girl then, but I heard it often played on the radio.

Kate’s Friday Fun https://aroused.blog/2021/01/17/friday-fun-icons/ is about icon – an icon or an emblem are often used to define¬†
a place, a movement, tribe, religion or business.

I chose to share this song along with my poem because I believe love in any form/s remains to be the best “icon”, the best symbol humanity has ever had over the years. And songs as well as poems are and will forever be one of the greatest expressions of love.
