When Intimacy Changes into Indifference


Time just flows past
And you never notice
Till subtle changes come bubbling to the surface;
When intimacy turns into indifference.

Time just flows past
And you never notice
Till your close friends just drift away;
When intimacy turns into indifference.

Time just flows past
And you never notice
Till people who supported you in tough times just disappear;
When intimacy turns into indifference.

Time just flows past
And you never notice
Till one’s cross feels too heavy;
When intimacy turns into indifference.

    I have taken this poem as a philosophy that can be generalized on the entire universe. Any thing or a person at a distance appears beautiful, but when it comes close enough we start watching the negative aspects of it. If it is merely a thing you can get rid of it, if he is a person having blood relation ship it is not difficult for you to ignore the negative aspects. The actual problem arises in the relations of two friends or that of a couple. If it is a friend you are shocked to loose him, but if he or she is your spouse you start regretting your past when he or she started coming in your life. If love is a true love, I mean acceptance of each other with not only the positive aspects but with the negative aspects, too, the indifference starts dying. The marriage is saved for the welfare of coming generations, a sacrifice, the climax of love. (Report) Reply

    There are many other beautiful and positive things in life, that one should appreciate and enjoy. Cheer up my fellow poet, life comes with its pros and its cons. All we can do, is accept whatever comes our way and carry on.
    Nevertheless, this is a beautiful poem, technically written.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
