Love Destined


Truly speaking,
I have loved you,
Ever since,
I saw you first.

For no fault of yours,
For no fault of mine.

For the love was destined,
to be faultless,
to be clueless,
to be restless,
to be merciless.

I enquired,
I acquired.
I did everything.
To retain my heart,
to contain my brain.
I could do nothing.

For this love was
a still in the air,
like the fragrance of,
a sweet-smelling earth;
For this love was boundless,
like clouds in the sky;
In search of a place,
where they could pour,
to make the earth,
wet and fragrant again!

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
