Paperback Storyteller: I wish it was true- That you want me, as much as I do

I wish it was true- That you want me, as much as I do:  I wish, you wanted to dance in the rain with me. I wish, it was me, that you would have looked at and laughed when a common friend of ours cracked a lame joke. I wish, that you would wish to skip the long, boring office hours just to be with me at home. I wish, you would daydream about me when you're stuck in the traffic. I wish, you would want me to wear that particular red saree and meet you by the lake. I wish, you would wish to hold my waist and kiss me on the rooftop as it rains. I wish, it'd have been me you wanted to make babies with, grow a family with. I wish, you would want to grow old with me and be happy with those wrinkles. I wish, you did not feel embarrassed to hold my hand and walk in front of all your friends. I wish, you would want to watch the whole season of "Prison Break" again, with me by your side. I wish, you would want to take me to your mother and ask her how your choice was. I wish, you'd tease me for putting too much salt in your favorite biriyani. I wish, you would want to speak to me about all your dreams and aspirations and heart breaks and heart aches and what not. I wish, you considered me as your best friend more than you considered me as your better-half. I wish, you would ask for my hand.

Marriage is scary. Marriage is a promise to keep if both hearts commit to it with the same amount of hopes, dreams, emotions, enthusiasm and most importantly, love and honor. I think I'm forcing you into this. Like, it is me who is driving the car. I like you enough to let you go. I like you enough to wish for what your heart wishes for. And I think it's not me whom you wish for.
I wish you would have stopped me from giving up on us, from giving up on this dream. But it's not happening, isn't it?
