"Share Your Story" Poem submitted by Mansi Darbhamulla, 20 years, from Hyderabad, India
Maybe I don't. Maybe I don't love you. Maybe I'm obsessed with the idea of love, the idea of being with someone, walking under snowy skies and sunny mornings. Maybe I would do just about anything to convince you that I love you when I actually don't. Maybe I can never love because love is suffering of two souls till they take their last breath. And even though I try running away from it maybe I'm in love with the despondence and exhaustion. And maybe that's why I love. Because I feel alive and astray from my blues. And maybe that's why I love you because I want to suffer with you.
