Love can be found in the darkest of hearts if one only remembers to seek it. Sometimes we need to see though eyes of others to see the love that lies within us. But it doesn’t always happen as the cupid desires to be, sometimes the worldly pleasures takes over our instincts. Sometimes we fail to see the light, the love which we have subconsciously locked away and the emotions cannot penetrate the shell around it. In a world of “tit for tat” we are yet to see “love for love” to decide the fate of all love stories. Some love stories do not see the dawn of eternity, some love stories just fade away in time. Here’s one such story that met with a similar fate but remember that it is just the story or the characters that die, the love lives on and on and on.
Love at first sight it was, as pure as it can be, She is everywhere, it’s all he can see, Knows no boundaries, fears no fear, Just wanna love her, and hold her dear,
It’s a pity she didn’t love him, Mocked him & shunned him away, But he never learned to not-love her, Without her…he wouldn’t last a day,
She was everything for him, He loved her unconditionally anyway, But his love couldn’t prevail, She wouldn’t believe-no matter what he say,
He didn’t know anything but to love her, So he loved her to his last breath, And proved his love in life and in death…
It may be heart shattering to see your beloved but not being able to embrace her in your arms but remember that you are never alone if you love yourself. You don’t have to be what others want you to be.
दिलों में छलकती मोहब्बत, लकीरों में समा ना सकी,
जम के बरसी दोनों ही तरफ, पर प्यास फिर भी बुझा ना सकी…
You don’t have to be interesting or entertaining, spontaneous or sociable. You are beautiful the way you are. The right people are going to recognize your worth. Life is too short, and your own happiness is far too important to think otherwise.
मोहब्बत के बाज़ार में,
इक उम्र ख़र्च कर आए हम,
पर खता भी क्या इन लम्हों की,
जब ख्वाब ही थे सजाए कम,
फूलों की दिलकश चाहत मे,
कटों ने ढाए…कितने सितम,
बे-इंतेहाँ मेरे प्यार के,
बदले मे पाए केवल गम,
खुशियाँ तेरी तुझमें ही हैं,
कहाँ मुस्कान तेरी? क्यूँ आँखें नम?
दिल को थोड़ा…ज़रा यार समझा,
हर दिल को यहाँ, मिलता नहीं सनम,
करनी है मोहब्बत, तो खुद से कर,
कोई और मिले…तो करना कम,
कोई और मिले…तो करना कम… ||
Sometimes the best thing you can do is not think, not wonder, not imagine, not obsess. Just breathe, and have faith that everything will work out for the best.
A long due post in my “True-love” series and I am glad blogadda came up with this prompt. Hope you like it. Don’t forget to share and come back for more.:-)
Let yourself be silently drawn by the surreal pull of love.
A soul mate isn’t one who completes you but the one who inspires you to complete yourself. Someone who loves you with so much conviction and so much heart that it is nearly impossible to doubt just how capable you are of becoming exactly who you have always wanted to be.
Love someone who loves your free spirit,
Sets your wild self free and runs amok with it,
Someone who never belittles you,
Loves you in all shades of emotions,
All gloomy colors, any boiling hue,
Someone who knows how gentle you are,
But doesn’t kindle your fragile scars,
Someone who knows your might and feels proud of it,
Shares your secrets and flaws but doesn’t arouse guilt,
Find someone who is
Patient, forgiving, and apologetic,
Humble, kind and empathetic,
Not only with you but everyone,
The one who shares your soul,
And loves you like none…
The best place in the world is in the arms of someone who will not only hold you up and hug you tight at your weakest moment.
When you choose a life partner, you are choosing a lot of things, including
Your parenting partner: someone who will deeply influence your children,
Your eating companion for about innumerable meals,
Your travel companion: someone to share memories with,
Your retirement friend, career therapist and someone whose day you’ll hear about for the rest of your life.
All said and done but love can never be planned, it is always spontaneous. Never underestimate the power and possibilities of ‘koi-no-yokan’.
When you have found your ‘special someone’ and choose to tap your privilege to be able to say ‘I love you’ to him/her, remember that you have to earn the right to be believed, the right to be loved.
I love you in ways
you have never been loved,
you have never been told,
than you think you deserved,
And with more
than you will ever know
that existed inside me…
Forelsket (Norwegian): The euphoria you experience when you’re first falling in love.
Koi-no-yokan (Japanese):The sense one can have upon first meeting a person that the two of you are going to fall in love. Differs from “love at first sight” as it does not imply that the feeling of love exists, only the knowledge that a future love is inevitable.
The love saga will continue…keep in touch for more:-)
Love is perpetual and illimitable and cannot possibly be squeezed into a few words (and the sugar coating doesn’t help either). It is the rawest, purest feeling which can only be felt with a pious heart. But we don’t need to figure out what love actually means to embrace it. It will find the longing heart itself. True love is born out of a divine connection between two souls and they need not necessarily be young adults of opposite sex but even parents, siblings and friends can share true love too. The hottest Bollywood theme of parents pitted against the amour has always sparked short circuits in my heart and brain. True love is more often portrayed as a pursuit of your beloved but I feel it is much beyond materialistic endeavors.
Love is not the flirty feeling
Not mere a glittering ring & kneeling
Love is sacrificial, love is ferocious
It is instinctive, limitless and atrocious
Love answers all questions, epic or small
It cannot be explained, yet it explains all.
Love is a feeling of being inexplicably drawn to another person, wishing for his/her happiness without caring for your own self. Love is a gamut of adjectives and a conglomerate of emotions and feelings. It is crazy, complicated and most importantly real and it cannot be hidden where it truly exists. Love may be a lot of things but it is always a positive feeling. It may have a different meaning for each one of us on a scale ranging from infatuation to obsession; where true loves lies somewhere in between but is being mistaken more often than being understood. In this gadget driven virtual world people don’t like love; they only like the idea of love. The squishy toys and splashy gifts exchanged on national romantic days have replaced love for all practical purposes.
True love is eternal, true love never dies,
True love is illimitable; beyond oceans and skies,
I welcome you all to the new year of opportunities, an year of hope; hope to rise and grow, to grow as a person, a writer, a blogger or a poet. I like this time of the year and it is not only because of my birthday but the positivity that thrills me. It is customary to make resolutions for the months to come. I have my own list but I don’t call them resolutions because mew year resolutions are eventually lost into oblivion by February. I may call them anything but I just want to be better than my previous self and I want it to be reflected on my blog. I have a lot of things in my mind for my space on the blogosphere and I hope you like them.
What’s new in 2017?
# A new look and new sections for my blog.
# Will explore new forms of poetry.
# A nerdy twist to blog posts.
# And a new series celebrating true love.
What to expect in my new series: Truelove?
Love is what brought me closer to poetry and it has a special place in my heart. In this series we will try to understand the chemistry of true love or what makes love true. The whats and whys of love. There will be poems, articles, prose, poetry and couplets. Some of my older poems will also make guest appearances. If you think you know love better than anyone else, you are most welcome to enlighten our minds too. Let’s start this wonderful year with love and romance.
तकते थे राह उनकी और इस जुस्तजू में ग़ज़ल बन गयी,
राबता हुआ उनसे और मुश्किल-ए-दिल ख़ुद हल बन गयी ||
If you are looking for some love, hop on and enjoy the ride.
