Its All About Love - Poem by Bindu Borle

I have seen it all from the close quarters,
Seen the glimpses of love touching life.
Love defining relationships, stringing hearts.
How unlikely it seems at times, so unconvincing.
Yet it is true, the love story.
I wonder is love all pervasive, surprisingly it is.
Tried to humorously put away the love thoughts
Of people falling in love and not rising.
They say love takes you to heights.
Ignorant fool that is what I am.
No one has been able to ever define love, the eternal love.
Maybe I lack romanticism, completely untouched by love,
Too practical and blunt
For beautiful unbinding and timeless love
I am yet to feel the love or maybe I never will
At times it seems too complicated for a simpleton like me.

    Love is God. There are two types of love, the one material and the other spiritual love. The attachment to the material world keeps temporarily one in a mixed happiness and sorrow. The attachment to the spiritual world, takes one to the height of permanent happiness with no sorrow to think about. (Report) Reply
