A Capricious Soliloquy

Rating: 4.7
I have some inherent problems with love,
Contrary to the most natural human feeling,
I seem to be quite fine and okay, up and doing,
When love that I seek doesn't surface in my viewing.

Unloved, I can soar in the sky and fly like a bird,
I can sing, I can grin, I can write, I can imagine.
Flow from the mountains like a natural stream,
And sleep peacefully, can even catch a dream.
But my problem starts when someone loves me.

@Leah Ayliffe Thank you very much for reading my poem and sharing your thoughts. I am truly inspired by your comment. ' I'm dependent on being independent! ' - A nice thought!

Khairul, this is a wonderful poem, I can understand your feelings, when there is no love I am free to be myself, be independent, and soar in any direction I want to. Yet when love is part of my life, I am grounded, it clips my wings, I feel unable to depend on myself. Love takes my freedom of choice away, because I have to respect another and their wishes. Love in a way suffocates and makes one feel undeserving of it, because all these other thoughts come upon you, stifling creativity. A begrudging of sorts because love expects too much from you.

Nice poem. When you are in love, you write poems through your body, mind and soul. But when you are not in love, you write poems through your pen. Ha ha ha. Enjoy both poems.
