Modern Love Poems: Snowflakes Taste Like Nostalgia by Shrutee Choudhary


[Note from Frolic: We’re so excited to have poet Shrutee Choudhary sharing three more original love poems with us today. Take it away, Shrutee!]


I was never this person, so I can’t tell if it’s an aberration of some kind or a pleasant change. 

But when we met, the clouds took over my demeanour, and it rained and it thundered 

until I surrendered to something inexplicable, entirely. 

My walls are down now and I’m barefoot in the grass, unsure of how I feel about it. 

And there is something about your face that turns me into a shimmering cityscape, and my glow in the dark skin can’t get enough of you. 

The wine from that night is still fermenting my words, I’m a tongue tied, spellbound mess

unable to confess — even to myself; the things I already know.



snowflakes taste like nostalgia

life is a scene out of a holiday movie

you spike my hot chocolate with rum 

I feel tingles in places I had been numb


when past is the present

it isn’t exactly a postcard moment

memories are spiked with fabrications

only once you’ve moved on


I wake up within a love song

inside a snow globe

and I find my last sliver of hope

in moments before I lost it to time

in whirlwind memories — then bitter, now sweet

from back when you were mine.



it’s as if somebody panic-bought 

all the metaphors from my stores

because I can’t seem to find 

the words anymore


and what am I without them 

but merely an outline of a person? 

so you can lie down upon 

my hammock flesh and bones

sink deep inside my hollow grounds 

float in my bare ocean or 

leave your footprints on my heart’s by-lanes 


I have all the space in the world 

to hold you.

About the Author:

When I’m not busy being a goofball, I like to complicate my life for a living, so I can try and uncomplicate it with words. 

I like to travel and make pictures. I’m also an actor, so I’m really all about the stories. 

In poetic terms, 

I’m the wormhole between reality and fiction

I’m the rhyme and the contradiction.
