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

"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"

actually a VRY IMPERSONAL POEM

i see a lot of ppl complaining abt wat i have wrote....n a frnd of mine who was turned down by his best frnd had been plagued the same trouble recently..."I-TRUST-YOU-IS-A BETTER-COMPLIMENT-THAN-I-LOVE YOU-n-SO-WE-SHUD-ALWAYS-REMAIN-BEST-FRIENDS"

so tht inspired me to write it...
i.e. if FRIENDSHIP n LOVE were two separate entities n subsequently if FRIENDSHIP wud hav fallen in love wid LOVE n LOVE wud hav turned down FRIENDSHIP then how wud FRIENDSHIP as an entity feel abt the whole affair n how wud it communicate the pain n agony it felt :)

hmmm....honoured to be invited back to this place! :)...THANKS!....sorry for being (a bit) late...

what i cudnt understand is why did u make things so obvious??...when u like it all complicated??

'but everyone takes a path, no matter whether its YOUR or MINE'
....i have just realised that THERE R many ways....some complicated...some messy...some truely inconsiderate...some materialistic....some just r a way and u cant define wht kinda way it is!...so so many i m recently getting to see .....that that i dont knw if these two r 'THE TWO' ANYMORE! (may b i wanna cry...mayb m feelin sorry :~)

(seriously i dnt even knw whos speaking the above....the God or the Satan in me?? ;) )

BUT BUT BUT the wait for the 'I' in you is over, eh?? or still wanna find nirvana in another 'YOU'?? :P

Psst...Psst...hw does it feel to be let in thru d door after WAITIN in d waitin room???

My fav lines- "I thought YOU were MY friend through and through
but then I realise YOU are friends with only YOU"

KAMONASISH AAYUSH MAZUMDAR said...

@tejal hmm hmm...interesting line to choose as favourite :P ;)

@shalinee yea i dont try n make things obvious but its no t as obvious as it seems....n the part which is obvious is obvious coz of sum vry unobvious reasons which cant be shared on an open online platform..
the most IMPORTANT PART...THE POST ISNT PERSONAL...:) its IMPERSONAL AS MENTIONED ABOVE...its written for sum1 els....

abhu said...

prabha said...

Love desired. Love denied. Love fulfilled. Love gone by. For centuries we have expressed our love through the written word, making a gift of language and giving shape to the feelings of the heart.The way u hav represented his helplesness , his patience is mesmerizing
