The Irish sure are a gorgeous bunch! The Corrs was my favourite band many years ago and I still cannot stop humming a few of their songs after so many years. I loved their music and whenever I’d get a glimpse of them on the tele, I’d just gawk at the girls desperately attempting to decide which sister looked the best. In all honesty, all three are just hotter than hot, blessed with beauty far superior than Helen of Troy. But if I were to pick, I’d say the drummer Caroline Corr, she’s my favourite. Wait, I’m not sure…I am in awe of Sharon too. Damn, I can’t choose. I adore them all! Being madly in love with them as a teenager, I had dreams of producing a band of my own. It was a rather futuristic dream. Pop out four kids and teach each one a few unique instruments. There, a band of my own, eh? I’m pretty sure you already knew this, but ‘Corr’ is their surname and they’re all siblings. They’re immensely talented. Each one plays at least 4 to 6 unconventional instruments. It’s like when God was distributing musical talents and beauty, their parents were first in that queue while the rest of the world just missed the memo! They look immaculate; they sing like a bunch of nightingales. They play real instruments, not some electronic box. And they write their own lyrics! That’s perfection personified. This song ‘Breathless’ is one of their popular songs. I used to screech with all my might all along under the assumption that somehow I sounded almost like them. 😉 And if you ask my mum, she’ll vouch for me and tell you I sound a whole lot better. 😉 😉 Unfortunately, she didn’t get that memo!
Breathless – poem by Ruelha
It's going to be sundown. I've been waiting since dawn. I watched it evanesce, the light. And now I still wait till midnight. In anticipation, time stands still. I need you now just like a pill. Come on now, make me breathless. Irrational, you make me feel helpless. I'm losing my will to even try. And to your face, I cannot lie. I'm hoping to conceal and repress. But, my countenance must express. I can't fight it. I surrender; I submit. Come on now, make me breathless. Sometimes it's okay to be careless. All you do is tempt and tease. A slight touch makes me weak in the knees. I can't deny this loving feeling. I find you extremely appealing. I'm longing for you only. Yet, you wait around so coldly. Come on now, make me breathless. Plant your kisses around like a necklace. Even if there's no tomorrow. I'm not worried about impending sorrow. I'm just so happy to have you now. Instead of ruining the moment to bow, You're all the love I need. That's just my reckless greed. Come on now, make me breathless. Just love irrespective and be selfless. I'm not asleep, but I'm dreaming. When you're around, I can't feel my breathing. I'm afraid, from this trance if I wake up. I'll be just another runner-up. And I never want to lose this. Even if it's just momentary bliss. So come on and make me breathless. Lets not consider and be reckless.

Most of my poems do not hint at my life/situation. Kindly refrain from drawing such parallels. Much of what I write is purely fictional. I have always written from my heart …about topics that I am passionate about – Christianity, makeup, melancholic poetry, food, romance, women’s issues, soulful music, narratives etc. Given the circumstances, my gender, situation, geography etc., I feel the need to put up a disclaimer every time I write a romantic/melancholic/intense piece. Everyone is entitled to an opinion. But, please don’t interpret this poem in a way it was not intended. That is just my humble request.

Lyrics of Breathless by the Corrs
Go on, go on Leave me breathless Come on Hey, yeah. The daylight's fading slowly But time with you is standing still I'm waiting for you only The slightest touch and I feel weak. I can not lie From you, I can not hide And I'm losing the will to try Can't hide it (can't hide it) Can't fight it (can't fight it)So go on, go on Come on, leave me breathless Tempt me, tease me Until I can't deny this Loving feeling Make me long for your kiss Go on, go on Yeah, come on Yeah. And if there's no tomorrow And all we have is here and now I'm happy just to have you You're all the love I need somehow It's like a dream Although I'm not asleep And I never want to wake up Don't lose it (don't lose it) Don't leave it (don't leave it) So go on, go on Come on, leave me breathless Tempt me, tease me Until I can't deny this Loving feeling Make me long for your kiss Go on, go on Yeah, come on Yeah, yeah Yeah, yeah, yeah Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah And I can't lie From you, I can not hide And I've lost my will to try Can't hide it (can't hide it) Can't fight it (can't fight it)So go on, go on Come on, leave me breathless Tempt me, tease me Until I can't deny this Loving feeling Make me long for your kiss. Go on, go on Come on, leave me breathless Go on, go on Come on, leave me breathless Go on, go on Come on, leave me breathless Go on, go on
