Whom to believe?

Ms. Heartbroken:

Yearn as much as I may,
Love stays nay.
I beg and I plead
But the void only exceeds.
In my heart’s pit so deep
Emotions sleep.
I think my heart fears
Another bout of tears
And refuses to wake
For life’s sake.
Love’s ways evade
And fail to pervade.
My heart doesn’t beat
At no visual treat.
I feel so lost
Like I'm my own ghost
What should I do,
To start anew?



Why should you yearn,

Instead of learn?

That Love isn’t life

And you shouldn’t strife

to bring it back

And mourn its lack.

Why should you long

For what doesn’t belong

In your heart

From the start ?

Life is in freedom

And not in this boredom

Of commitment

And contentment.

Life is in variety

Not in sobriety.

Keep strings unattached

Feel no hurt when you’re detached.

The Cupid:

Please believe,

It’s in the way you perceive.

For the lost don’t yearn

From experience learn.

Love comes when you stop the chase.

This numb feeling is just a phase.

Fell the wall

Around the heart small.

Welcome the sun

And make life fun.

Keep smiling

Not whining.

Right on time

You’ll hear the chime.

Look it in the eye

And don’t be shy.

Don’t fear the worst.

Drink when in thirst.

Then love will seep in

And live deep within.

My words will be true

For the optimistic you!

Lovely poem, Vibhuti. The two versions of the Devil and the Cupid were especially worth reading. All of us have those dualities within us somewhere!
Nice one. :)

Hi Shalmalee,
Thanks and the template you mean? A very very close friend/Cousin of mine has lovingly selected this one for me..Will let her know, her choice works!!! :D
vibhutib said…
Absolutely, you've caught the nerve of the poem! Am glad..:))
vibhutib said…
Yes Tweety thats very true. We have to walk a thin line balancing what the devil teaches and the cupid asks for..:D isnt it?
Leo said…
I like the three view point take on the W :) lovely wordplay.. a bit of punctuation can make the reading quite better! :D
vibhutib said…
See I take all sensible opinions seriously and immediately work on that!!
And I had help from the 'PRO' you see..:D Thanks anyways..You should see this template now for quite sometime until I get bored..:))

Ill try to see where Ive forgotten the punctuations and rectify the poetry..Thanks again Leo!!!! :))
