I Am In Love - Poem by Akhtar Jawad

I am often so attracted,
Mesmerized and enchanted,
Having watched pretty things,
With magic in their wings,
Flying at human height,
Touching eyes like a light,
Getting inside very deep,
With a pleasant soul peep,
Then my eyes smile,
Making heart juvenile,
And I say to myself,
Put book in the shelf,
Watch beauty an' sacrifice,
Your self, may be nice,
I then sing like a dove,
I am now in love.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Love starts with attraction and its climax is self sacrifice.

    Doves complain more than they sing. That's their way of expressing themselves. This is a very interesting poem. (Report) Reply

    In life, we are attracted, mesmerized and enchanted by pretty things. Falling in love is a spontaneous expression. 'I then sing like a dove- i am now in love'! So beautifully expressed, Jawad Sir! (Report) Reply
