** Recession Of Love ***--In Top 500

The flood of recession
has shaken the foundation
of house of hope,
built on land of optimism

The hope is swept away
in torrential flood of depression

The soothing wintry sunshine
of share and care
has turned into
scorching sunrays of despair.
The name pink
no longer invites fantasies
but make men
slips into sleeplessness

But as long as
flood of recession
doesn’t cause
waning in love and care
human beings
will breathe
and live and share
and give
and yes!
no one on this earth
shall repent and grieve

    ‘Pink slip
    Is deep dip
    In depression
    Hybrids frustration! ’

    Great humanist write.

    Nice theme..... Alas! what sin did these beautiful colours commit? For every negative facet of the world a splendid colour has to bear guilt! We have a BLUE, A RED and now PINK!

    I wish I could agree with you, but then economics has a way of impacting everything, even life and love...

    Like Thomas Hardy, here you express of something of very pessimistic. But in the last stanza, you express your hope of waning love. I dedicate this two lines:

    In darkness, you find nothing,
    In the morning, the new sun give you everything.

    Do we dare
    to take the chance
    opening our lives
    again to romance

    Our passion burns
    like a summer heat
    a love that's strong
    beautiful and sweet?

    Anju, your poem is similar to that of Victorian novelist Thomas Hardy.You are really genius.Your optimistic message gives us a new sunny morning- a morning full of new light-a light of hope-a hope for universal happiness-a happinss for all-all rank of people-people of the world-the world in unity-unity in diversity-a diversity in colour but an equal demand-a demand for love.
