Love Begins…..

21 Comments

In the distance as far as the eyes can see,
And in the solitude of a lonely heart,
There lives a desire to be known to one,
There is a desire never to be torn apart.

From the initial feeling of attraction,
To the later stages of attachment,
The two lives go on to entangle,
So much so that they coexist as one.

Later when fate plays a role,
There always remains a pain,
The pain that is known to love as love,
And known to hurt in hate as love too.

Even then it never ceases to amaze me,
This falling in love and in pain,
For just as soon as one story is done with,
Yet another one blooms to begin.

***Love Begins***

—–Poems are always a work of fiction. That is strange considering the fact that life is poem in itself. Not everyone can understand it at one go. They have to be read again and again and sometimes read between the lines too——

  1. Those first two stanzas reminded me of a dialogue from Captain Corelli’s Mandolin where Iannis describes love ” When you fall in love, it is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake, and then it subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots are become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the desire to mate every second of the day. It is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every part of your body. No… don’t blush. I am telling you some truths. For that is just being in love; which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over, when being in love has burned away. Doesn’t sound very exciting, does it? But it is! ”
    Excellent poem Jyothi. πŸ™‚

      I don’t believe that love gets burnt. It just stays dormant! There is always a need to revive it! πŸ˜€

  2. Dear Jyothi,
    True love will never hurt the heart that appreciates its meaning. It is we humans who hurt each other then blame love. Love is everlasting, because when we have all been embraced by the kiss of death, love will always remain. Very nicely done!
    Thanks for sharing.

    BTW, it’s nice to finally see what you look like! (smile)
