Drama King - Poem by Poornima Kanasen

Drama King

The name itself suggests such exaggeration,
A step becomes many in a split second,
A name of ordinary becomes the mark of fame,
An end to it, not defined in any words, any languages

Such tendency flows within him; my heart speaks out of love,
Logical thoughts are out-bounded in the medium of love,
Such optimism I witness in him, he pulls me up, crafts a path hand in hand,
A miracle I waited all these years, a gift given by the Lord,

Betwixt his love and mine, everything’s alive,
No mere stage-plays, no mere actors, no rehearsals,
Do you need practice in love or stages to portray your love?
In seconds, two hearts become one accompanied by well composed ballad,

Let it be known or not, drama king of mine resides within me,
Questions thereafter, no explanations needed for I have decided,
Silence between lovers like great distances of places, it resembles,
Across the ocean, across the globe, no matter, your presence defines me,

An exaggeration of my imagination, interpreted and crafted in the form of you,
So true that the sweetness of reality sipping into every inch of my soul,
Expressions of love well distributed in the love story that we share,
Every moment, well lived for every second forward,
So, my love, stay there safely, awaiting just an opportunity for me to slip in
