In Love

by Harshita Das aged 13

Falling in love should be good
My heart should feel like soaring
Thoughts consumed in love
With passion I should be roaring

Yet I remain silent and brooding
I’ve fallen in love; but it will leave me soon
This wonderful everlasting feeling is tainted
By the quiet dread that prevents my swoon

I’ve fallen in love with control
I love the silence when I read and write
Love it so much, I forget the world
When your words give me unwanted sight

I can’t blame you; but I resent you
For tainting the little time I’ve left with what I love
For your constant nagging, reminding me of the things I hate
Of the things that’ll pull me apart from the silence I crave
