Humdrum Life



And when I am naked, of giving all I have
Still I would search for the lack of the ‘I’
If love were so easy as lust were to ‘He’
Happiness would be mine, forever mine……

D2 said...

Love isn't easy to make. More so when unrequited and with a loathsome person.

Yeah D2..@ Paulami yes it's a part of a larger poem..trouble is sometimes they are so personal that putting it up is a tough decision :)

Purba said...

The imperfect balance of give and take coupled with a lousy thing called "expectation" - tragic!

vicious said...

those 4 lines have a very lasting effect

Vyankatesh said...

Complex thoughts, nicely presented!!

Nethra said...

Women submit themselves to men hoping they would understand their love but all men care about is themselves and their pleasure. However, not everyone are like that and I hope that I would meet someone from the later, not the former category.

I hear you.

Kartikay said...

Aha - it is a two-way street! Really nicely written, but it feels a little abrupt. Is there more before and after this stanza?

Maitreyee Chowdhury said...

@ kartikay..very observant ..yeah its a part of a longer poem :)

Neeraja said...

Wow!!! It is so beautiful. So painful. And so beautiful!

So little words and such strong emotions.
