DARE.

You are my sunshine,
At times.
And I dare not say I love you.

You are my moon child
So alone,
A black Pearl in this ocean of defiance,
A pearlescent plum.

I dare not say I love you,
Because I am afraid,
You’ll discover who I am.

You’ll discover all the bubbles and pop them.
I am scared you’ll turn away,
Because a shy bloom takes time,
And I do not want to be thunder that spoils it.

You do not deserve loneliness,
In this moment,
I pray life is forgiving,
Believe in my God for once,

Because I dare not say I love you,
but give chaste thoughts and
Notions of kindness,
So you’ll know,
You have us.

You are my sunshine.
In my never ending, unceasing field of detention,
Of purgatory.

You are my light,
At times.
And I dare not say I love you,
For I’m sure,
You already know.

For my sweet, sweet sister,
Sanjana.
