Love, the dive in and out


Falling in love
Is like diving into water
With a splash.

To be in love
Is like to be
In water and inside water
swimming, sporting, playing
Frolicking, floating
With air and without water
To be with the outer world
To be without the outer world.

To be out of love
Is coming out of water
The deeper, one in love
The more time is consumed to come out
The more time is consumed to dry oneself
Getting out of love
Is not coming out to senses
Time has different unseen path
To traverse back
For each lover in love.

    Falling in love especially love at first sight is like a head long plunge into the deep waters, either you can swim and sport or get drowned! A nice poem on Love! (Report) Reply

    The more time is consumed to come out

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
