Blindness Of Love Poem by Nosheen Irfan

Blindness Of Love

Rating: 5.0


Why do I seek you
Knowing you to be
A wanderer of beautiful lands
Not made to rest in one lap
When I know love is just an arrow
Bound to bring stinging pain
What makes me fall for you
Who smiles for everyone
And is not meant to belong
But to roam from heart to heart like wind
Love has a blindness they say
An inherent blindness
That makes a Zeus of a man
So I chase you against reason
Right down to the blind alley
But I cannot blame you
For the fault lies with the lover
Not the beloved
The lover…
The poor lover!

A true love story. The vitality comes from and within the chase. When the pursuit ceases, does life calm down...wither...change. A complicated, thought-provoking work, Nosheen.

Hi Nosheen, Wonderful poem. A totally distinct love story. But to roam from heart to heart like wind Love has a blindness they say An inherent blindness That makes a Zeus of a man... In Sanskrit, one of the names of ‘wind’ is “Anila”... one that does not stop (anywhere) . Your poem captures this idea in its fullest meaning. And the allusion to Zeus, whose love is not just Anila, but amoral too, gels with the rest of the poem. Congratulations. Full marks and to MyPoemList.
