Can’t love be…………………
(Love is not measured by the number of times
You touch each other…..
But the number of times
You reach out to each other)
Can’t love be like the first rays of the sun,
Warm, soothing, comforting;
Should you always want it to be?
The blinding glare of the noon-heated and taunting……..
Can’t love be like the soft, gentle breeze,
Caressing, easing away all tensions;
Should it always be a whirlwind, a gush, a gash
Swift and sure to be gone in a moment……
Can’t love be like a lisping stream
Bouncing merrily over the pebbles of life finding reasons for living:
Should it always be a sea of heartaches,
An ocean of loneliness,a dam of pride…….
Can’t love be sometimes as silent as the shadows,
Each content…yet there for each other
Should it always be a booming pretence
Brandishing ego to the drumbeats of I,Me,Myself…
Cant love be a shrine scented with smiles
Pure and sweet and healing….
Should it always be infested
With falseness and slime….
Can’t love be lingering and lasting,
Like a flame burning constantly:
Should it always be a fizzle of fireworks,
Or a tidal wave of destruction…..
Cant’ love be a dying ember ,where only memories remain,
Should you always make it a roaring spitfire,
A heinous crime,a a numbed soul
Or an aimless existence,embittered,
Kindled with hatred forever.
(Don’t let your love be a murderous flash,
Let it be pure sunshine-sweet and healing).

Every night when I lay in bed, my mind goes racing with thoughts I dread. I think of the times we had as one, it reminds me of all our beautiful fun. But now I lay in bed alone, wondering if I’ll get back what I once had known. I’m so scared and full of…

Just Go, Free me, please. I don’t want to struggle, And life would be back at ease. I’m done with you, I played my part. All I got nothing, But a broken heart! I tried my best but you never discerned My hopes are in vain Only letting me in pain. To you I’m nothing…

Loneliness is tearing me apart. How can I console my heart? Its bleeding deep inside. My dreams have shattered. All hopes have died….. Existence has no reason Life is just passing with each season.. There’s a saying time heals but I don’t think mine will.. My heart only cries I can give up everything am…

I tried to hide, to fake a smile.. but my eyes told me that I lost something. I tried to forget, all my regrets.. but my tears told me that I lost something. I tried not to bother, said, it doesn’t matter.. but my heart told me that I lost something. I tried to be…
