Still by Mahnoor

It’s not the love I care about

Neither the pain I have suffered

It’s the scars, I love the most

For I have groomed them like a toddler

And admired them like the New Year’s fireworks

I have laid with them in stillness

And hugged them, patted them like they were my true lovers

I know it’s inconvenient to say this, because there is so much more other than this,

But they are the most beautiful memory of us

The only connection to you

They relieve the pain in my heart

And give me the courage to confess,

The most daunting and chaotic truth

That I still love you,

That I still belong to you,

That I still am yours!
