good to read my old work 😀
Clouds were whispering about
consequences of love;
Winds were spreading wildly
You said good bye with a rose.
Abandoned our dreams;
to pursue yours.
The rose and I both detached from root,
Left to mourn on the death of ‘what if’ wishes…
What do you see? What does it say to you? What has just happened?
Pen me your thoughts I’m curious to see what you come up with.
I want to ‘feel’ and ‘see’ what you are writing about, so weave into your poem lots of emotion and clear images. I will be judging your entries in the way of how they make me ‘feel’ and what I can ‘see’ within your poem.

It was early in the morning, I was about to start my work. When my two-year old came running to me with a broken toy. It was one of her favorite toy, a plastic green colored fish. She was hoping that I would fix it for her. It looked like broken forever. But my baby to a toddler, it was difficult make her understand the reality, she kept nagging me to fix the toy for her.
It is an incident that occurs in every household now and then. But it hit me hard!
An instant thought came along! Not all broken things are meant to be fixed!
Recently one of my friends gone through a very painful divorce. In moment of weakness she confessed that she was hoping that it would work but it didn’t. We all knew that was never going to work. It was broken forever. Like the toy, some relationships also never meant to be fixed. But it might take a while to understand and accept it.
The most difficult part is to have an understanding in relationship is whether ‘to work on’ or ‘to move on’. Sometimes we knew it was over but we were hoping for a miracle because we didn’t know that there could be another life without this phase, this dream or this person.
But believe me there is! And there will be always. This is how life works!
I lost many things in my life, I was almost broke more over a decade now. My dream was shattered and my hopes were gone. It was very dark phrase of life where I just gave up on life. Everything around me seemed meaningless. I wrote some saddest poems on those days. I lived on that self-pity zone for a long time. It took years to heal.
The wound has its mark in my life but it doesn’t bother me anymore. I accept it as part of me. I worked hard on getting back my life. I collected lots of self- help books and got connected with very positive people in course of time.
Healing doesn’t happen overnight. It takes time, but the important thing is I never gave up. Things started to change in very slow motion and today when I look back I thank to God for making this far.
Today, I’m in a new phase of life which was totally unbelievable fifteen years back. I found a new love, a new phase and new reason to love life. And I’m very grateful for that.
With a smile, I picked up the toy and told her that the fish is going for vacation. A new fish would come and join her. That evening she got a new toy fish! She happily started playing with it forgetting about the old one. The joy was overwhelming for the mother as well.
It would have been nice if we can replace all the things so easily like the toy. But with life it works differently. The emotional hurts take time to heal. Remember, life again will take it turn and things will be much better soon!
Romantic songs often make to think deeper. I become more philosophical and emotional. Especially when I listen to ‘And my heart will go on…’.
I was thinking about movie, about Jack and Kate. How Jack gave his life to save Kate. How thrilled I was when I first saw the movie. I was also thinking how deep can we go to explore love!
To me experiencing love is like experiencing ocean. It is vast and near to limitless. We can’t experience the ocean completely. We can only experience the ocean as per our caliber and interest level of learning.
For example, if I wish I can sit on shore and watch the ocean and I feel that my heart is contented. And I would feel I know the ocean just looking at the surf, tasting the salty breeze. Most of the time I feel complete just sitting at the shore and I never had any desire to go beyond and explore.
Some people else might wanted to go deeper to experience something more, sitting on the shore is not enough for them. And so, they go deeper. And the deeper they go, the deep we fall for it. And then there will be a conflict. When I’m thinking the beauty of ocean lies on the shore, they might be think that I know nothing about ocean at all. And they are right about their point of view but I’m right about my point of view too. I got my peace in the shore, I know enough, my quest is satisfied.
Likewise, everyone has some experience about love but the level of understanding is different. Some of them just watching love from the shore and never dare to go deeper. Few people might dance on Love’s surf but desire to beyond. And very few have gone deep enough to never come back. Different stories, different level experience about Love.
Love can’t be known completely as ocean and that makes both are mysteriously beautiful.
And any mysteriously beautiful thing can be dangerous to any ignorant!
I will end my thoughts with the beautiful song on Love! Enjoy!
The Rose | Bette Midler
Some say love, it is a river, that drowns the tender reed
Some say love, it is a razor, that leaves your soul to bleed
Some say love, it is a hunger, an endless aching need
I say love, it is a flower, and you, its only seed
Its the heart afraid of breaking, that never learns to dance
Its the dream afraid of waking, that never takes the chance
Its the one who won’t be taking, who cannot seem to give
And the soul afraid of dying, that never learns to live
