The Power of Words
There was an enormous gathering near the serene park following Valentine’s week.
Solitude engulfed my desires of becoming an adult too fast for a geek.
The smells of roses, the ambience of romantic grandeur all around.
Too much for a soul who still believes in precious letters, expressing emotion in each word.
I stood there like a kid, observing every artificial showcase of flattery and flamboyance.
Romantic paraphernalia surpassed the limits of venting, with robotic acceptance.
Feelings which come from within are not restricted to any particular day.
The "forever thing" is not a myth; it’s deeply intertwined with the mystical words
cultured each day, every day.
