Tell me

- Binny Tamang

Jun 20, 2018-

Ask me about the stars and the constellations.

Tell me how childish I am for still making a wish over a falling star.

Ask me about the last time I cried.

Convince me that a sign of mere frailty is not what tears are.

Ask me why feelings are fickle and elation evanescent.

Tell me that I am not selfish for enjoying your company at my convenience.

Baffle me by inciting a passion that hides dormant.

Fill me with your intelligence and make me question mine.

Ask me why time is elusive.

Tell me every moment is a serendipitous encounter to feel alive.

Talk to me about books and music and friends.

Tell me it’s okay to be heedless of their significance sometimes.

Ask me to reminisce a short-lived sentiment of a lonesome jaunt.  

Tell me it’s better to be on your own than to feelout alone.

Draw me out of my bubble and humor me for being reticent.

Tell me life has more to offer,

than the apparent.

Tamang is an A-levels student at Trinity International College
