Lonesome Love

Unrequited, platonic,
puppy, all-conquering,
romantic, religious,
lost, true.

Love must be awfully lonely
To never survive without an adjective

Nice. And true.

Creatively done - and quite true, I think.

Sounds sooo boringly run of the mill :)

Is it? lonely? I've never been able to qualify (or quantify) it.

I think most emotions are just drama we choose to play, our psyches are canvases, they need those flashes of color to not feel empty perhaps.

But love is not an emotion( i think. if you asked to explain that, i would have a hard time)

Can unrequited love not be lonely?
Can all-conquering love submit to love?
Can romantic love see clearly?
What of true love that befalls...?

Guess who:) (Think wa....ay back)

@Jyothsna, Anox: Thanks!

@Mystic Rose: Really? Run of the mill? :-) I am not dealing with emotions or not here. My attempt was to personify love.

@Anon: Definitely have a guess based on what you wrote, but you can't expect me to make a mistake on a public forum, can you? Out with your identity.

RTD2 said...

"love"ly insight :)

Have you wondered about how 'love' is always a transitive verb? How lonely it must be to never survive without an object.

Parth said...

@Sparsh, RTD2: Thanks. Sure, no absolutes here.

Stone said...

I guess, its Urdu translation would be fantastic too.

Parth said...

@Stone: Thanks.

for me, love's all about being the solo free spirit, so lonely, perhaps not so much as unencumbered :)

Parth said...

@Hopeless Romantic: You are a free spirit :)
