From me to you

I wanna give you no candies,

I wanna give you no flowers,

No diamonds for you, no chocolates,

No lace and ribbon-adorned cards;

I wanna give you

Nothing pretty,

I wanna give you

Something no one else wants;

I wanna give you

Something ugly,

I wanna show you

Something unadorned;

I wanna show you

My naked face,

I wanna show you

How I look with no mask;

I wanna show you

My dirty scabs,

I wanna show you

How they bleed when pricked;

I wanna show you

The filth that escaped my mouth,

I wanna show you

How filth ensconced my hands;

I wanna show you

The darkness in my mind,

I wanna show you

The dark moments of my past;

I wanna show you

My nightmares,

I wanna show you

How I cry in the middle of the night;

I wanna show you

The ugly me,

I wanna show you

The big, bad, clumsy me;

I wanna show you

No pretty face,

I wanna show you

A new side of me;

I wanna show you

All that led to making me me,

I wanna show you

The deep, secret part of me;

I wanna give you no candies,

I wanna give you no flowers,

No diamonds for you, no chocolates,

No lace and ribbon-adorned cards;

I wanna give you

Something special to me,

I wanna give you all of me

‘Cos you are special to me.

Kite Runner hangover, probably! ๐Ÿ™‚ For all the Sorayas of the world…

    poetically – ok, not bad.. can’t be a good sales/marketing person though ๐Ÿ˜‰

    danke. ๐Ÿ™‚ a sales/mktg person, i would horribly suck. i know. ๐Ÿ™‚ not even considering it..

  5. Hmm Hmm
    Now that I have cleared my throat, can I shout out loud – Bravo!
    Loved the rhythm that sets in as you read it, sell it as a song would be my advice, would be great.

    thanks. glad u liked it. ๐Ÿ™‚ when i read it after i was done, i too felt it sounds like a song – an americanised song. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Nice!

    thanks, aparna! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. beautiful.. :)IMHO the general idea is that women are pretty things for the showcase. Guys should know that they have their dirt/downside et all. ๐Ÿ™‚ sounds a tad too americanized but conveys the idea all the same.loved the dedication. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    keep them coming..
    btw whats with this inline replies??

    thanks. ๐Ÿ™‚ ejatlee… dunno how the american tone set in. just came in. ๐Ÿ™‚
    sure wil keep them coming (if i can) ๐Ÿ™‚ as for the dedication, as i said earlier, kiterunner hangover. fell in love with soraya’s character, and in a strange way with amir’s too. so conscentious.
    have started replying inline bcos its easier for me. yes, i m as lazy as possible. ๐Ÿ˜€

  8. me the already gave comment

    yes, so you did. thanks for the feedback. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. definitely a special gift ๐Ÿ™‚

    ๐Ÿ™‚ the best gift you can give to someone is a piece of yourself. (i read that somewhere, and i agree with that fully)

    Wow ! what a poem… I have been married for quite some time… someone said “I thought I am a saint, till I got married”. I would agree with every word in your poem that this happens all the time in relationship (especially in marriage)… showing the ugly side of one…
    Now if I may ask my “better half”, it would be,
    “do u still want me?” as you wanted me when our eyes crossed for the first time. hmmm!!!

    welcome here, and thanks for the comment… i agree – if the people in a relationship can sustain all the ‘ugliness’ in each other, it is bound to succeed. ๐Ÿ™‚
