an ODE to LOVE. . . from FRIENDSHIP


To Love,
I waited and waited and waited again
waited patiently for MY dear friend
hoping to fall into YOU someday soon
I waited and waited and waited again

looked up all night for the falling stars
awaited life long for MY place in YOUR heart
but then I agnise that YOU belong to a chosen few
whereas I belong to everyone, including YOU

nirvana came to ME of late
when I awoke to evaluate
perplexed by the nightmare true
the only thing I still did was wait for YOU

they warned ME about the way YOU strike
I never paid heed or even put up a fight
may be I was a fool to believe in YOU
'coz I never thought YOU would hurt ME too

how could YOU do what YOU did?
doesn't it matter how I live?
I thought YOU were MY friend through and through
but then I realise YOU are friends with only YOU

I knew life's full of the mysteries YOU unfold
I knew life itself is in YOUR stronghold
but when I mused over life's discomforting fling
I realised life moves only when YOU pull its string
the strings YOU pull makes enchanting euphony most of the time
but the wrong chords YOU strike are never sublime

some take my route to find YOURS
some take yours to find MINE
almost all quander at the crossway
few learn from the journey and most get dismayed

paths may differ, run parallel or twine
but everyone takes a path, no matter whether its YOUR or MINE

so close yet so far WE stand
almost alike, withal so fanned
may be someday YOU would see ME and YOURSELF as strands
parts of the ultimate puzzle YOU are yet to understand
after all its not any puzzle I indite about
its the puzzle of puzzles which WE both can't do without

peradventure WE were never destined to enlace
may be serving OUR travellers is the only means to embrace
YOU might fear that I would want YOU to efface
but effacing LOVE is the only thing I can never ideate

and hence,
I waited and waited and waited again
waited patiently for MY dear friend
hoping to fall into YOU someday soon
I waited and waited and waited again. . .
From FRIENDSHIP
