It’s You.

She tasted of gunpowder and roses, just as beautiful and just as dangerous. She was smokes and mirrors. A reflection within a reflection, a forbidden act. She was ferociousness and tenderness in the same breath.

In the moment as we sat on that bench, my body ached for her. She was too much and too little at the same time. Much more than what she thought and much less than what I was making her out to be. She was untamed, unchained and unhinged.

Her pain was fueling the fire in her belly. I knew I could get burned. I knew I had to tread with caution but damn she was worth the burns.
And so I jumped.
To fall into her.

    Lucky one, Zayn, to have a flawlessly woven piece , intricately crafted by you, attached to his music.
    *depreciation of Zayn much*
    I was actually surprised to see Zayn on your blog, I thought you didn’t listen to him๐Ÿ˜ฎ.
    Loved loved loved this post. Probably one of my favourites from your blog . Keep that pen bleeding.
    P.s. Everyone here says that Pakistanis are very beautiful .Zayn and Zee never make me doubt that. *Just admits fancying Zayn* *chokes* * gulps water*
    Peace ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Hahahaha Saadia !! Your this comment made my day I swear๐Ÿ˜‚
      Thank you thank you and thank you !๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜˜

      I didn’t use to listen to 1D but I kinda dig Zayn’s solo music. It’s more mature and this song I loved it๐Ÿ˜ and I felt it went well with my written piece. Your words of appreciation means a lot ! I’m so so taken by them. Much love to you โค๏ธ

    I really like this. There is a lot of mystery in her. Very nicely written.

    There was something about some of the words that reminded me of something I wrote. I just went out and reposted it. If you decide to look, make sure you click to go back to the original and let me know if you understand why I thought of it reading your poem. Of course, only if you want to.

    I’m using my work computer (which I shouldn’t be,) so no fancy emoji for this comment ๐Ÿ™‚ But I do like the poem ๐Ÿ˜€
