Mark This, Will You? - Poem by indira babbellapati

heart always appears
as foolish one to me
how many follies it
commits and how
many more wounds
and hurts it absorbs!

have you ever seen
a heart behaving sane
learning from the experience?
how it always forces
an innocent smile on your lips!
how helpless it sheds
tears in its privacy!

does it ever learn
from at least one tear shed
or a smile forced upon the lips?

o, this heart...
in its vulnerability lies
its uniqueness
in its suffering lies
its wretchedness...

    ..the moth knows that it will die..but it still jumps into the fire..
    ..the heart is happy in its sufferings..der is joy in its sadness..
    .may be thats the reason the heart is not willing to learn... ;)
