There’s something about loving


I know loving,

The only act that comes naturally to me

The rest are all conjured specs of moonshine


There was a time when I thought

I had reached deeper than the deepest..

But the more I love..the deeper I dive

Till I discover, I’ve reached deeper than the deepest

And yet there is scope for more-


Eternity is a small sphere

The future but full of possibilities…

Ironically most of us are so afraid to fall in love!

This is such a beautiful poem I love the idea that love continues to deepen and grow I believe that as well

Dayang said...

We should not be afraid of loving deeply coz it will come back to us in a way we least expect it. Nice piece.

This poem is such an outpouring of love, life and sincerity that it reveals your true nature:))

Short. yet succinct - I found myself wanting to read more. I love the phrasing "The rest are all conjured specs of moonshine".

SUB said...

Some fall deeper and deeper in love...we never fell, we just rose...love gave us wing...and we both are together and free...who says love ties you down...

Lovely poem...

Cheers!

Loved this line-
'Yet there is scope for more eternity' '

Indeed :)

Once hurt, we think before we leap.
Such is experience, a double edged sword. The more we are scared of hurt, the more we withdraw into our shell.

I like your thoughts, all neatly packed into a poetry parcel.

Jingle said...

bravo...
wise words.
Glad to see you in.

Happy Rally.

Loving should never scare us. :)

You are very brave. A beautiful, inspirational poem.

Andy said...

I am a true romantic and believe in the power of love. Afterall, to give love is to receive love.
As far as I'm concerned, one can never have enough love.

Beautifully expressed.
