The Love Story Continues - Poem by Amrit Rathi

I have a Relationship.
I fight
with Arrows of Blame,
with Stings of Criticism,
with the Storm of Arguments,
with the Charge of Anger,
with the Phantom of Suspicion,
under the Weight of Ego,
for Self-centered Ends,
to score a Point,
on False Assumptions,
on Confused Notions,
with Pangs of Possessiveness,
with the Mentality only to take.

Never mind what I get,
I continue.
And the Fallacy of Love continues.
This is I. This is me.
I can’t bend means I can’t.

I have a relationship.
Instead, I care
to Understand,
to Listen,
to Love,
to Trust,
to Give,
to Converge,
to Share,
to Devote,
to Surrender,
to Care,
to Lighten up,
to Count my Blessings.

Never mind what I get,
I continue.
And the Love Story continues.
This is I, the Humble Me.
Love is Life, only Love I can.

The Relationship has to make sense,
and from the two options I see
what I choose,
makes all the difference-
makes it fallacy or fact!

Thus how I approach it,
decides what I make from it.

    For the Self-centered Ends

    The paradox which this line holds is very subtle. Very nice.
