"Of the face in general, let me say it’s a house built by men and lived in by their dreams. When you’ve been plucking eyes out of the floorboards as long as I have, you’ll see this, just as you’d see the patience it requires to render an eyebrow, half an hour and an understanding of architecture. When you see your body, think its opposite: not the bridge, but its lighted face reflecting the water, some other city as seen from a ship— your forehead, once ponderous, now light as umbrellas— still not beautiful enough to make time stop. The pleasure in being a woman’s knowing everything’s borrowed and can’t be denied, as when you take apart a clock, there’s always another inside."

Don’t tell her you love her, she knows you don’t Don’t tell her she’s as warm as flames, for she knows she’s frozen Don’t tell her you’re the lone wolf, she knows already that you won’t stay for anything less than the moon Don’t tell her that you aren’t her kind of love, her love didn’t let her judge you on parameters Don’t tell her there are many like you, she’s seen many but loved you Don’t tell her you might love sometime later, she knows she isn’t the one Don’t make her believe that you are a phase, she knows it’s love Or maybe, say anything in the entire universe, but break her ice Tell her stories that she might feed her soul on Write her letters that help her pamper her love Write anything if not love, Let her know that you exist Let her know that, if not she, her love is worth that bit. That poet soul needs to know you exist, somewhere in her world Let her patronize the eyes and soul she fancies She calls you poetry, let her talk to you like one. Allow that retro, cliché lover of yours to stay Don’t push her naïve, classic love into the flames of today’s mortal affection. Help her stay, even if you are destined to pass by. Maybe, she is tired of falling deeper into absolute vacuum and calling it the depth of your eyes. - Nazneen #winter #chionophile #selenophile #love #rant #ventout #thisisnotpoetry #grey #moon #wolf #poetsofig #poetry #poet #shayar #indianpoet #lovequotes #heart #letter #loveletters #writer
