I Love You

I Love You

A Poem by Mehak Mushtaq








Cracked,
Broken
and Shattered
our hearts.
Like a jigsaw puzzle,
we fix each other.

Hate,
Sense,
Stones'nothing breaks
the already broken.
So, we stay this way
reflecting each other.

I remember
when I was beautiful,
I was never perfect.
I never felt complete.

It's pieces of your soul
that play a perfect symphony
with the broken beats of my heart.

Scared or
Scarred, my heart
I can always
put it in your hands.

I don't very much believe
in perfect
unless, it's your love.
I don't even believe in love
 if it's not you.

For, you are my lost solace
and a stable blessing
And I love you just so much.

I hold a certain amount of envy in a loose fist for people who have found this kind of love...I don't hold too tight because I am cynical by nurture. Your poem is truly magnificent.

Thank you, Lourisa.
This is a deep tribute to someone well-loved. The explanation of the fracturing, the reassembly and the poet's rejection of all but the beloved tumble over each other to the last stanza, a breathless declaration.

Like the form, I would edit the second verse, if I may...
Stones never break the already broken...good job

Love can fix our shattered hearts, this is quite lovely Mehak. "I don't even believe in love if it's not you.', This is how we feel when we've got the whole heart of another.
