My Dilemma - Poem by Kesav Venkat Easwaran

Many a few I behold, talk
Sweet love to me
Through their eyes
Many others I meet, walk
Straight into me
With their words

But I can’t talk love, back
To those beloved ones
Or take them into my heart
For, a loving watchful lot
Often raise questions and
Keep me away from my plots!

    I enjoy the play on talking and walking as a one-sided movement, thanks (Report) Reply

    responding the way you want..the preconceived person you have in mind..what we realy speak is not we realy intend to..seems recorded..not natural (Report) Reply

    alas you are right, but with time comes a mellowing and perhaps we become more tolerant, a prodding poem of thoughtful 10+ (Report) Reply

    I do understand you..... so hard to explain things which sometimes they turn a deaf ear. (Report) Reply

    ___________________________________________
    This is perhaps the most unknown reason for not
    reciprocating sweet words to fans(?) . But I must agree
    You spoke the TRUTH because when mind is busy
    weaving a plot it ceases to react on mundane calls
    and makes someone a bit unsocial and apparently
    proud too.Bad luck.

    I love the deceptive simplicity of your verse. Perhaps the plots can wait awhile.

    A good human understanding but many times we can not avoid these things and just allow ourselves to love these pretty emotions.But it ia a sensible advice to all those who just ruin themselves because of false praise and love in others' eyes.For example. Iago -a villain of Othello by Shakespeare comments about himself and says:
    'I am not What I am'
    and King Claudius in Hamlet makes the same comment when he says:
    'one may smile and smile and be a villain'.
    Good Job. (Report) Reply

    I really did connect with this one too.
    You have an such ease with words that what you express transfers readily to the reader, and one is drawn into it, quite unknowingly. Really liked this one! (Report) Reply

    Reminds me of Joggers Park... well said, loving eyes do hold a warning, don't they? (Report) Reply

    The dilemma is true coz it is difficult to reciprocate the words….the silent words are understood better….great lines… (Report) Reply
