A Little Less than Love


love

To him she was painting, made in blood and flesh,
To him she was song, written in skin and bones.
To him her face was like the morning dew; all clear, calm and fresh,
He said she was a sparkling necklace, made up of precious stones.

He thought so differently about her, it made her smile and cry,
To the world she was maniac, no less than the wild rye.

He made her feel celestial, yet he called it less than love,
He looked in her deep brown eyes but never dared to dive.
She laughed her sorrows off with him, but never called it love,
She knew going ahead with this, would cost her a million lies.

He seemed to care for her so deeply,
She always reciprocated with a destructive solar flare.
It was until one day when his patience died, he crossed the barriers to fly,
It was then when she realized that her eyes had lost their glare.

It was his care and affection, that pumped her up with life,
With him gone away, she was left with nothing but sorrow.
That He would come back to bring her back at fife,
She waited with this hope, looking ahead to that happy tomorrow.

And when he did come back,
She held him like her life.
He wiped her tears quickly, before she started to crack,
Just this was how their story was set to ignite.

She held his hand and they looked into the mirror,
They saw all that was clear and nice.

They saw two; a dove with a rock dove,
And it exactly looked a little less than love!

And.. Just When You Thought you found Love


Starry nights..Long talks over the phone..Day-dreaming..stolen kisses and those bear hugs..Just when you start making peace with these and start smiling for having the love of your life is when reality sets in and LIFE..it hits you hard.

Can you not spread your wings and fly while still be in love?

Can you not let go of love and still be in love even more?

How do you even define love?

Is love the ‘LOVE’ we think it is?

Who gave us this term called love?

Love, sure is whimsical..mystical..and magical…but is it real..for real..!!!!

Is love just a state of our minds where we make our selves believe that we’ve been hard hit by the cupid..??

How do we even know that every human emotion is for real..?? *It sounds cranky, I know..but just give it a though*

Just when you start feeling the warmth of love engulfing your soul..does the chill of insecurities and life hit you hard..??

Is love the fuel of life? Is it practical to follow the footsteps of Romeo-Juliet and not those of your dreams and heart.

Where does your heart take you?? To evening called Love or to the Morning called life??

Just when you thought that you found that one true love of yours, Did something happen?? Did something shook your head?? Did you fall in love with yourself more??

..I’m asking you..because you’ve been dancing on the silver line of love and yet you’ve been thinking about all this now and then??

Did love really grip you..ever??

Shouldn’t love just be the lightest and the most delicate thing..Something that doesn’t keep your mind running in spirals??

Think!!!

Is Marriage the Ultimate Destination of our Lives: India


Okay, so…I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend. I’m having a lazy one at home with family. It’s all about..watching television, reading a few posts, eating my favorite meal and about taking a super short break from work.

Coming to television, a talk show, Zindagi Live caught my attention today. The issue being talked about gripped me and instigated some thoughts. Today the show was covering ‘zindagi-ies’ of three women..three divorced women.. three women who were happy with their lives after divorce. It was wonderful to hear them talk about the happiness this decision had brought to their lives. You see the confidence in their eyes.

How is marriage such an important part of our lives? We, Indians.. are we born and brought only for this one thing?

You’re born..You go to a good school, because you need good education..You need good education, because you need good professional degree. You need a degree for a job..and a Job for a good spouse..!! AND THAT’S IT..!! We know the part post marriage..there’s love..there’s honeymoon..moons..then there are kids..and then..its about you taking care of your kids..!! Your live’s finished..Your personal identity is gone..the love..is gone !!

Have you goofed up, already!!

Why is marriage so important? I mean.. you’re toiling hard for what..!! To earn good..to live a good life..to be financially secure and to enjoy your life..this should only be about it..!! How does marriage get to play a bigger part?

**Ok..Ok..I know there might be people who are smitten by this marriage thing, but let’s talk about the majority of Indians.**

You’re 22..You’re young..People around look at you with popping eyeballs..they’re more interested in knowing your marriage plans while their marriage is still struggling. I mean..what duhhh..fhh..!!

Marriage shouldn’t be an agenda. We need to understand that there are things to be done in life beyond marriage. A person needs to chalk out their own identity before being associated to someone else’s.

Specially, Women..Its stupid to get married because you’ve turned 28 and all your friends are sailing off to their honeymoons. You don’t want to end up in doing this.

You don’t want to end cursing yourself!

Getting married because you’re parents think its time isn’t a sensible thing to do. Love or Arrange, marriage should happen to a person when he’s ready..socially, mentally and financially.

Even if marriage does not happen to you eventually..don’t go mad..Its not the end of the world.. Go ahead, chase the ends of the world and make the most of your ‘single-hood’. If its meant to be..it will be..

At least you’re no marriage decision will save you from this :

Some famous marriage quotes :

Marriage works best for men than women. The two happiest groups are married men and unmarried women.

Gloria Steinem

Marriage is really tough,because you have to deal with feelings…and lawyers.

Richard Pryor

Before you make your big decision..Think…Think hard…Think harder…Think the hardest you can..!!

Love isn’t easy


Love is an amalgam of three things : Boredom, Sadness and Complication.

It isn’t easy to fall in and out of love. Love is not a simple emotion. There are thousand other emotions that come together to invent what we call ‘Love’.

Defining the Lover’s Love : Its a Comical Chaos


**“Empty mind is Devil’s workshop”, I’m going to prove this tonight. You are going to succumb to this post and I’m sorry for that.**

NO!! I’m no relationship expert. And NO, This article has nothing to do with the beauty or whatever..of love. I’ve been thinking about a few weird, call it funny, things lately and Love just happens to be one of those. NO ( Number 3 ) not about the red roses, the stolen kisses or the bear hugs; just about love. What is love ??..I know, you and even I would, use all those heavy words ( trust, care, concern, intimacy, understanding…blah..blah..blah..) to define love. Another ( I promise, the last ) NO, I am not using blah..blah..because I’m deprived of love or something.

Lover’s love..I mean..there are so many forms and types of love these days, I couldn’t resist mentioning it.

How did the world..the people conceive the idea of Love..Loving ? Is Love really an emotion ? The way we feel love ( the butterflies and the day dreaming ) is that how it is meant to be felt ?

**I know, its stupid. Please tolerate**

Why is Love called L O V E and not something else..why not H A K U N A  M A T A T A.

* Silly* But just try replacing love when you say I love you..with I Hakuna Matata you. **Laughs** What if the person who coined the term ‘Love’, coined some other term instead.

How is it that we know that love is what we call  it ?

There are a bazillion phrases, quotes, pictures about love. People have their own ways of defining it. Surprisingly, I have none. I don’t know how I would define love. It is not as simple as it seems. I might choose gibberish over love sometime in my life.

For people reading this, Love might just be a simple emotion.. a simple connection..But is it really that simple. I mean after all the ‘Friendship’ phase to ‘ I like you ‘ phase to ‘I love you’ phase and then over to the ‘ Soul-mates ‘ phase..Is it all that simple? There are just so many phases and further steps involved…an irreversible chemical reaction sounds better than this.

“Happily falling in love”..come on.. I just don’t get this.. Sounds like happily falling in a dark well. Why happy..while you fall..!! Or why fall while you’re happy..!!

If Love was a real person and had a twitter account, It would have been the most followed person ever.

I know, you’re probably confused with what I’m trying to say. It is just that.. Things, feelings and emotions; around us, known to us..are they even real. Are you in love because you really are in love ? Or is it because the entire world around you is in Love ?

With love being worshiped all over, Is love really happening all over ?

Is Love really what you think it is ?

Image
This is all I mean

I’m still wondering.. What are you thinking about ?!?
