Message to Readers

the edited version also I am suffering from block so the additions suck
anyways, I came up with an idea of ' what are the side-effects of falling in love with a poet?'
so if I get 20 likes then I am going for it.

So for those who asked from where is this inspired.
It's a blend of real-life and my dreams. out of blue, I came up with this line which I loved a lot (but what if I fell in love with a poet). I starting collecting all my one-liners and came up with this. Thanks Mishthi for inspiring and helping me with it.
P.S. there will be a collaboration piece with Mishthi coming soon!
Feedbacks are appreciated. Please comment on the sequel.

but what if I fell in love with a poet? (Edited and please read the message box!!)

But what if I fall in love with a poet?
Poet and poetess
Isn't it a dangerous couple
If he brings stars for me
Then shall I get the ocean for him?
Isn't poetry crazy?
If he personifies my voice as honey
I will compare his voice to the pitter-patter of rain,

We both will write with our inks flowing from nerve
And threads from his poetic heart connects mine.

I breathe his words in my breath
Each word is breathtaking

But what if I fell in love with a poet
And we write in the moonlight
The sight
Of a poet and poetess
Writing the world in their lines.
Each letter filled with love.

But what If I fell in love with a poet?
We lay back on the terrace
Gazing the night sky, shining glistening upon us.
With our books and pen in hand.
Ink is not merely to write but
But what if I fell in love with a poet?
But what if I fell in love with a poet?
Poets are dangerous 
Including my smile, midnight eye
In his dreamy simile
Cinematic are his metaphors
He writes hyperbole my rough hair as smooth silky,
using it as a simile for soft fur.
He using my laugh as rhyme
mine looking good as a crime
but what if I fell in love with a poet?

This poetess is also 
Remembering his hair, wave, 
In my bliss
His presence is 
Stardust in enchanted rain  
I will exaggerate his wink
As thunder in my chest
alliterated his flawless flirting 
And closeness as clouds 
Pouring love in life
He'll bring the arc of vivid colors in my life
But what if I feel in love with a poet?

When my mood is off
Neither do I want flowers nor chocolate
I just want you pearly lips to recite me a sonnet
or your special Shayari 
Your knitted sweater of words on my back
But what if I feel in love with a poet?

I want you to take me 
on a date with you and your diary
On my terrace
Escaping the reality
Take me on a tour to a magical world
Entry in your poems
And I will show you stars on my lips
With mine poetry
I fell in love with you,
also the poet!

    Indeed it's heartwarming!
    I hope the transition from fell to feel is intentional and not a typo. Also, in the fifth stanza, 'simile' has been repeated twice. If you could edit it... But that's just a suggestion. Overall, it's enchanting. :)
