In Search Of Love

The love I had been searching for
Found it at last

Loved her with love and lust,
But that love is now lost.

Now, again though I search the love
But with a little change of taste.

Not only a mere physical love
But a love being wide open.

A universal love I need
To reach me to a great height indeed! !

Where love and peace coexist
With it's amazing beauty.

Enabling me to experience
The eternity of it! ! !

    Beautiful poem. This is eternal love. Love of soul. To travel on this path is hard because our thoughts are taking us to this path.. but once achieved, one will know the real meaning of life. This love cannot be snatched away by any time or anything. This love is within us. One has to go deeper into self to attain it. I loved this poem very much.
    Thanks for sharing with us. (Report) Reply

    The poet in introspection is seeking a feel of Platonic love that abounds in plenty amidst us if we see and recognise it. Small but powerful, the poem is insightful sir. (Report) Reply

    A great poem of acceptance and resignation......! Your former love..... one of love, sex and lust mixed is now sublimated into a wider and more comprehensive form of love.... the universal love! A heart thirsting for love will be content with this sublime form of love and now you will be able to share it with many of those who are longing for love! A Great write Amitava and definitely you deserve a 10 (Report) Reply

    Amitava, it seems you have accepted the loss of your true love, and are now looking for a different type of love, not merely physical, but an all-encompassing love to take you into eternity. Moving forward towards it, now that you have defined what you're looking for. A very sad labor of love, yet some peaceful hope looking forward. (Report) Reply
