All in the name of love...
I guess am jinxed... Coz People around me keep falling in love.. :D
n sadly... out of it...
I'll be honest.. I don't understand love.. atleast, not the way these people do.. My understanding is limited to what I've seen through their eyes.. n what I've felt.. through their pain..
This poem goes out to them.. n to all those who loved n love.. Their experiences in my words.. Being one eternal optimist, I hate to admit it.. But I know.. it's all true.. :)
When your heart aches for no reason,
& you feel your life stinks,
When happiness looks elusive
& your eyes well up with tears..
When you start shrinking from the world
& you think no one would understand,
When all you do is daydream
& stare at the phone since it last rang..
When you are everywhere yet nowhere
& night forces you to sleep,
When all pleasures look shallow
& something cries within you deep..
When you find yourself helpless
at the way things are going,
When you lock yourself up in your room
While whole world's out enjoying..
When everything reminds of someone
& you start to lose your focus,
When melody loses a meaning for you
& everything tests your patience..
This is the dark side of love
Don't go by its name,
Love's not always beautiful
as some lucky ones might claim..
For sometimes it leaves your heart
with so profound a pain,
That every wordly pleasure
to you looks mundane..
All I want to say is that
Give your heart away with care,
for no matter how many years go by
The scars are always there!!
