We are not a perfect pair.
No! No! Not another pair of lovebirds.

We are not mirror images!
No, No! There would be too little of us!

We are not the dagger and the sheath.
Really! I’d feel real cut up, you know?

You see, we aren’t a pair at all!
I’m you, and you’re me-
Through all the multiple unreal images that manifest,
There is only One soul, we meet in!
I am, but that essence of you,
and so,
You are me!

So your smiles and giggles
Are expressions of my joy-
My tears are the outpouring of your sorrow-
The richness of life is in the
Magic of our mingling breath!

I breathe only as long as you live.

Stop! My dear, you say,
I exult!

And ..
I reply,

I’m breathless,
With your laughter!

Another to share :

With you, always...

Valentine's Day run-up-flooding-of-Mush-and-Goo, in progress! And thanks again Solilo, for the precious advice!


  1. ahh the mush continues! for some reason it eludes me now! bah!

  2. Oh a Valentine's song...

    I could never write one--
    Its a refreshing read...


  3. Nobody's perfect. Therefore,going by this logic,there can be no perfect pair either,rite?
    It works only if u trample this logic by the power of ur love and will to make it work..Sighh..
    I like ur blog. I'll visit u again.
    Anand. :-)

  4. now this is very touching and sensitising, loved the magic of love the poem spuns on the readers mind...sorry heart...
    Indulgence is the most beautiful part of love and this poem appeases u to do so.... beautiful dear...

  5. loved this one a lot..for a minute, I was wondering whthr you are writing about 'aparan' :P..then I got it...hhehhee

  6. mushy mushy
    I am you, you are me...
    me loves the way you express 'thee'.(lolzzz)

  7. Wow!! Perfect welcome for feb 14...great going!!! Hope i cud come up wit something nice next feb 14

  8. will come back later:)
    right now my head's full of debates and arguments on freedom:D
    not a good frame of mind to comment on this..:)

  9. This is not mush. This is sensitive love. You touched a chord here Usha.

    Loved this line

    "There is only One soul, we meet in!
    I am, but that essence of you,
    and so,
    You are me!"


  10. "I'm breathless with your laughter"...I loved it. There is something so intangibly close in that line.

  11. ''We are not mirror images!
    No, No! There would be too little of us!''

    Beautiful lines....emphasising that each one is a unique individual....that one doesnt have to be an exact reflection of the other...
    absolutely loved it...
    and yet this...''I breathe only as long as you live.''
    beautiful Usha!:)
    True how is one to say where one ends and the other begins?
    two souls entwined for eternity.....perhaps...?:)

  12. Ah... The pulchritude of it all...

    Ma'am... Are you like this before every V-Day? :) I mean... Serious! You are in your element. Am at loss for words to describe the way you portray such emotions... :)
