Jealousy... - Poem by Poornima Kanasen

An unnoticed defect, at times,
A glimpse of it, halts the presence of love,
An unexplained cause of agony,

An unfamiliar quietness that dwells within,
More mysteries, less solutions,
Is it a state of mind or just an unforgiving feeling?

Unreasoned doubts, unanswered questions,
Unmapped guilty consciousness,
Hollow, it makes one to be...
Life, stilled! Emotions, frozen!

Insensible ideas of yours colour your characteristics,
Out of norm, out of mind, you become,
Intersecting with parallel lines, causing more havoc,
Indeed, a distraction from the beauty of life itself,

Paralyzes your inner soul,
Small details are missed out, all skipped for a bigger picture,
In the quest to search for the truth, love is simply being misplaced,
You lose in your own crenelations against your vulnerability,

Soon, only loneliness accompanies you,
Arrays of disturbed thoughts,
Passaged through a lane of memories,
Once precious, now unwanted....

Time tells you no tale,
It is the unfixed duration that heals others,
Jealousy, a simple but untutored notion.
Let you, you alone to battle with it.....

    Never waste jealousy on a real man: it is the imaginary man
    that supplants us all in the long run..... It was qouted by
    Sir George Bernard Shaw onece and very rightly he elaborated
    the evilness of this humonoid nature.

    It should never lie inside human blood...A very thought provoking
    poem Poornima......10/10
