Tattoowala Love!


We talked about love

But, often what hurts

Is that

I had you

In my heart

The whole time

And you never noticed.

I didn’t believe in love at first sight


Your eyes,

Your heart,

Your existence,

Enlightened my heart & soul.

I admire so many things about you

But your heart is the reason

I still fall for it

Every single day.

I have your name

Tattooed in my heart

I kept some of that ink

To paint my mind

The tree of your love

It keeps growing in heart & mind.

I found love in your presence




Is a miracle

I want to cherish

For the rest of my life.

The Moon and the stars

For all nights I spent

Telling them all my secrets

My desires,

My purpose,

My truth.

But mostly about the love

I have for you.
