He is married

She said- I am in love, but I am afraid,

She said- the feeling is strong, but unsaid.

I feel butterflies at his sight,

Heartbeats skipped the moment he eyed.

So why don’t you tell him? – I inquired.

A deep breath, she sighed!

“I can’t”- she mumbled,

“I want to, but I can’t”- she sounded troubled.

Wondering and struggling to frame words, she finally spoke-

He is married,

Married to his job, married to responsibilities,

Married to a girl and married to his family.

Please don’t judge me,

Please don’t look down on me.

These are emotions, I couldn’t control,

There is a magnetism that he beholds.

These are my emotions.

And would stay buried in me.

I wouldn’t express or think of it either,

I wouldn’t complicate his life be whatever the matter.

Now, you might think of me with low stature,

But love is pious and cannot be halted with a tagline, for the matter.

He is married, so let him be,

Needless to say, I would still love thee!
