Love….?

P1 1212

“They say a good love is one that sits you down, gives you a drink of water, and pats you on top of the head. But I say a good love is one that casts you into the wind, sets you ablaze, makes you burn through the skies and ignite the night like a phoenix; the kind that cuts you loose like a wildfire and you can’t stop running simply because you keep on burning everything that you touch! I say that’s a good love; one that burns and flies, and you run with it!” ~ C. JoyBell C.

What if….?

“What” and “If” are two words as non-threatening as words can be. But put them together side-by-side and they have the power to haunt you for the rest of your life: What if? What if? What if?

I don’t know how your story ended but if what you felt then was true love, then it’s never too late. If it was true then, why wouldn’t it be true now? You need only the courage to follow your heart. I don’t know what a love like Juliet’s feels like: love to leave loved ones for, love to cross oceans for, but I’d like to believe if I ever were to feel it, that I’d have the courage to seize it. ~ Letters to Juliet

Get on with it!

It is one of my attempts at poetry. I am honestly not sure if I have done a good job here, though i sure can be better! It is inspired by the writings of Felicity Johns

We held hands and laughed with each other
We fell in love here, remember?
Memories of those days remain vivid in my mind
Until they start blurring with the happenings that were unkind

And then silence – like you hold right now – until the moment I crack
Days pass and weeks just go by as I pretend to be normal and hold my tears back
Your rejection or may be indifference, not sure which hurts the most
But now I must snap out of it and draw it to a close

I spent important moments of my life waiting for you
A substantial period, just thinking about us two
Its time to stop, take my life ahead
Take total control of it and steer it with a clear head

It feels impossible – how do I just detach from someone held so dear?
The friend in me gives me no choice as she lays it out in terms very clear –
‘Someday, and someday soon you have to reach there young lady
Till then the golden mantra is ‘fake it till you make it baby!’

Love….

I read it on FB. now THIS is something you post over FB than your daily diary. what a lovely thought..!!
thank you!! whoever you are for writing this beautiful poem!!

If a kiss were a raindrop, I’d send you showers.
If hugs were a second, I’d send you hours.
If smiles were water, I’d send you the sea.
If love was a person, I’d send you me.
If I had to choose whether to breathe or to love you,
I would use my last breath to tell you – I love you.
They say you only fall in love once, but that can’t be true…
I fall in love all over again, every time I look at you!
