And You Call It Love....... - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

Warm cocktail of happiness and pain
Sometimes the eyes cannot hold this disdain
unsaid constricts and the volcano erupts
ending a painful conflict within
to shed the tears to ease on the burden.

There are days when you long for human touch,
that one hug from someone you love or
maybe from someone who loves you.
This is reassurance that you exist.

Reassurance of something deeper
than just frivolous playful words,
Love, not pity, not sympathy, nothing,
but the silent warmth of trust, care and togetherness.

It is strange feeling to love from a distance,
Strange and heart wrenching at times and
yet there it a sweet pleasure in it,
Pleasure of knowing, believing that someone thinks of you
worth it and a smile travels through the tears.

An instant flush warms you up and
then reality shows you the mirror,
The illusion fades away,
ultimately you see surrounded by "fear".

Fear of things that have not yet happened and
maybe they even won't, but you fear and
in that fear anxious heart cries for comfort
Comfort of that illusion, that mirage you call it love.

    Wonderfully depicted the strange feeling of love from a distance when smile travels through the tear, an instant flush warms you up, but reality shows you the mirror and you feel that it is but an illusion, a mirage and fear grips you. (Report) Reply

    Amazing poem......but nowadays our eyes and heart remains in search of a person with whom we can share all of our feelings our, pain, joy and grief....but only lucky people's search comes to an end after finding and some one's search is never ending search.....loved it..... :) :)

    No one is here
    My feelings With whom I can share..

    Your expression comes out from deep inside of the heart that makes really a great impact.
    This is reassurance that you exist.
    (when you get) Love, not pity, not sympathy, nothing,
    but the silent warmth of trust, care and togetherness.
