If I were a ray of sunshine…

If I were a ray of sunshine, I’d fall on the trepidation that scorches your veins, on the hesitation that clips your wings,
On nightmares that get to you and drench your mornings,

On the darkness that fills your soul with dread,
On chaos and mishaps that suffocate your breath,

On words left unsaid,
On emotions that choke you with a longing you refuse to acknowledge,

I’d bring with me, an effervescence your heart would seek to soak itself in,

A fire, raging to burn down your chagrin,

The scent of honeysuckles to tickle your efficacy, joy, in abundance, to relinquish your rue,

I’d bring with me hope, to light up your face, breeze, to lilt to your laughter, a sky without clouds, I’d bring with me, a universe, that exults in your happiness and hue.

I hoard books for a living. And read them too, when I am not sleeping. I express what I think, so my unheard feelings don't sink. I like to sing when I walk, to keep shades grey, at bay. I speak like a dork, but I don't want to drive anyone away. I write what's real, and nothing fake, so visit my blog whenever you need a break ;)
