Forgotten Words.

Love is a used gift. A wretched curse.

It is not complete without hate and worse

Than death which, eventually, brings peace.

Sacrifice screams from behind Love’s shoulder

While Jealousy tries in vain to hold her,

Love sits forever weeping in the heart,

While Contentment gets ready to depart.

Love burns a heart with hot fire, piece by piece,

Expecting each one to cry out its thanks,

Besides streams of joy, dying on their banks.

Without it, hearts weep and, with it, they cry,

Without it, they live and, with it, they die.

It makes the wise buffoons and makes fools so wise,

Strips truth naked and transforms it to lies,

A sinner learns to mends his ways, for love,

Prometheus was shunned from Heavens above

And Achilles died in Patroclus’s dream;

Oh, all things of love are not what they seem!

Love burnt the beautiful city of Troy,

And it did the strength of Samson destroy.

Love leaves neither God nor mortal alone,

Promises a smile and leaves back a moan.

It sees its pleasure in torment and grief

And lives ‘til death or is instantly brief!

Creates victims who are in love with those

Who love some other with far greater throes.

There are victims who love and never ask why,

These are the fullest fools – amongst them am I.

  2. Thank you, Geeta. 🙂
    And thank you, Poonam.
    It is always lovely to hear that one’s work is appreciated. Please feel free to comment on the other poems as well. Any critique is welcome.

  3. I’ve been browsing online greater than 3 hours these days, yet I
    never discovered any fascinating article like yours. It’s
    lovely worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the internet will probably be a lot more useful than ever before.
