Love is in the air

By Akshita Pareek

Time zones cannot keep
birds from flying 
and
love birds from mystifying.
I love how you blend in my life
like coffee
and still cause a sensation
like an eclipse.
Sitting in my room, 
talking to you 
feels like going to the bakery 
to eat a cupcake 
I've felt in my stomach 
since forever. 
Surrounded by a hundred haters, 
I feel you in my woollen cap
squeezing your sweetness in my tiny ears;
Sweetness transforming haters into seekers.
So, when we walk through the hall of fame 
in heaven, 
walk beside me, not ahead or behind. 
For, you never pulled me back 
like clay in the backyard. 
And 
never forced my substance out 
like a syringe in the hospital.
A band empowering the diamond, 
together we make 
the purest diamond ring 
this universe can 
ever produce.
