My Quest For Those Simple Answers

Love and Care


Do I care to love interminably;


Or, do I love to care excessively


Whatever I dared to do;


Breaking apart from all taboo


In the midst of exasperating stares;


Rattled with the intervention affairs


I loved and cared;


With every atom of my cell


I could, in no account, imagine;


That doing thus, could afflict like hell
Picture Credit- Me

Didn’t you mention that you loved me the most?


Or is it your pride you feared to be lost


How guileless of me to fancy it my way;


That love is above all; be pride or any dismay


And love conquers all, winning every heart;


That how flawless you were in that part


Didn’t you ever notice the ceaseless care in my eyes?


Or was it all sham for you, alike your ornate lies   


Wasn’t a decade adequate for you?


To settle on a set course


And what about those distorted promises?


You no more recall; and wonder you had ever voiced
Picture Credit- Me
May be, I bestowed much more than you deserved;


Contrarily, your neglects caused me turn unnerved


Legends said it so aptly;


Too much of anything always turns nasty


At the end; all seemed to drown in vain;


When conferred with incessant pain


You chose pride over love;


Comfort over battle and stature over care


I often ask myself. Why did I devote?


Recklessly and Carelessly; In


Too much love; And too much care
Picture Credit- Me
Is it wrong to love someone irrevocably?


Or, is it not apt to care for your love?


Is it not done to wait for someone you love?


Or, is it not fair to be honest with emotions?


I am trying to figure out simple answers


Life seems to be too long;


And I am running out of patience


You promised to be around; Always


Or, Did you simply run out of yours?
Picture Credit- Me
