Theme: Love

Real Love

Only droplets of tears
Choked in the corners
Like speechlessness;
Blank look with faint twinkles
Spreading like clouds.

But for me…they are all waves
Kissing the feet of beach
Like an Indian bride;
The sparks blazing
To kindle the candle of my heart.

A hug shuddering, crumbling
Like a climber
Around my ribs

A bed shrinking like a log
With sleepless nights
Beside my chair.

I never knew before
If Love lived without
Gossip and chatting
Smile and hug
If Love was
written in uncared skin

Fifteen months
Of lifelessness
Fills in me so much
Of nectar and blood
To rhyme
I love you, Dear;
Even if you die
I will live like your death
The way you live now my life
With a gaze,
Although dead.

Note - Written on watching a clip from CNNIBN  telecast on 17.10.2012 through NEWS FUSE, OTV, Odisha, the story of a girl becoming speechless because of an accidental shock. Her boyfriend constantly sitting beside her, wiping out her tears and attending her for a long period of 15 months with the strong conviction that love would win in the long run.
