I want to write to myself
I want to write to myself a letter ,
No other letter is better ,
I want to rejoice my memories ,
The dreams, the smiles with no body but myself .
I want to miss my self when I write,
To make the emotions melancholic yet bright ,
I want to tell my self, how much I miss being with me .
For all this time ,and all this life ;
I have lived as per the rules of thou,
I have not ever said it but ,
Since I am writing to myself, I shall say no lies .
I want to know what’s in there ,
I don’t want to know the world outside ,
I want to keep my eyes on me ,
I shall not hide anything .
I don’t want to miss any moment,
I get to spend ,
With my beautiful self ,
As these moments belong to me ,
These are mine entirely.
I shall spend it in my poetry ,
Writing to myself ,
These beautiful lines all in rhymes ,
Some might be out of place,
Still better than emotions misplaced.
I want to know what I am ,
Before I can say I want to know them,
They who want to know me , can’t show me the path.
Its for me to discover that ,
Where I want to be and what I want to see.
