She is looking at the sky, her breathing calm and slow
I have so much to say, to ask, to answer, to confess.
As I hold her hand, and her breathe hitches just for a moment my words get lost somewhere in my mind.
I don't deserve her, I don't deserve her, I don't deserve her.
I close my eyes and think about atleast 10 good reasons why I am the worst for her.
Seconds pass, maybe some minutes. I know she won't ask me anything until I'm comfortable, and I hate her for that. Why is she not bombarding me with questions? Why not blame my depressive thoughts and insecurities for our frequent fights?
Why is she so patient!!
My thoughts are now gnawing at me. I almost can't breathe. But just then I feel her lips kissing my forehead softly, I shudder. And I know I have to look at her because it's the only way I'll come back from the abyss of my dark world.
She looks at me with gleaming eyes, her loose hair dancing with the wind, and says,
You look too much inside your heart, it's pitch black in there. There's nothing to see, love, there's nothing to look at. You have wasted so many hours trying to find the light inside you, but just know that you can borrow it from outside.
Open your eyes and look around, you need to breathe...
And the sky is pink.
I open my eyes and look in hers and there's everything I need to see. And by everything I mean her love for me. She has again turned her face towards the sky, as if to guide me towards the pink heaven above us.
The sky is pink, soft and serene.
Just like her.
I don't deserve her, but she makes me watch pink skies.
And I love her.
