Love

Meandering in the park,
Thinking.. why love?
What makes it so special?
Why am I still in dark?
What exactly is love?

Thats when I saw a bee
Moving flower to flower
Dancing in glee
I asked the sweet fragrant rose
Why him?
he is so disloyal dont you see?

I live for just a day,
The rose said,
I would rather spend few moments with him,
Alive n gay, forever close
Or I would be dead

Confused I reached home,
Deep in thought, I went to balcony,
Enticed by the nightangle’s symphony
I asked,” Tell me about this love syndrome”

She laughed at me outright!
Love cannot be explained in words
It needs heart’s insight
How do I express what I feel
An experience Surreal

Flummoxed I went inside,
A lamp burnt by the windowsill
A fluttery firefly embraced
shimmering flame, I was enraged
Did you have your fill?

Is this what you call love oh flame??!!
A soul died, you are to blame!
It said, ” Love, you will never understand”
Coz love doesnt demand,My friend
It withstands, Marks of destiny,
For I am left to tell this story,
While the fly gets all the glory

Again, I thought,
What the heck is love?
Is it emotion overwrought?
For it, battles are fought
Dangers dared,
Many have despaired
And yet, it is
Forever sought!!

  2. Hi ,

    I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be wow.. u write well.. Why don’t you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog Song of my life took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

    BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run http://www.rambhai.com where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

    This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. 🙂

    Cheers,

    It withstands, Marks of destiny,” – you have reinstated a very significant thought about love in a world where love is talked in terms of better and worse. LOVED THE POEM.
    And the analogues were something else: the questions between the narrator and the flower, the narrator and the flame etc… superb!
    I reckon you have a mind that’s perfumed with creative exquisiteness as well as coherent connections. Great job!
