When Intimacy Changes Into Indifference Poem by Jasbir Chatterjee

When Intimacy Changes Into Indifference

Rating: 4.5


Time just flows past
And you never notice
Till subtle changes come bubbling to the surface;
When intimacy turns into indifference.

Time just flows past
And you never notice
Till your close friends just drift away;
When intimacy turns into indifference.

Time just flows past
And you never notice
Till people who supported you in tough times just disappear;
When intimacy turns into indifference.

Time just flows past
And you never notice
Till one’s cross feels too heavy;
When intimacy turns into indifference.

There are many other beautiful and positive things in life, that one should appreciate and enjoy. Cheer up my fellow poet, life comes with its pros and its cons. All we can do, is accept whatever comes our way and carry on. Nevertheless, this is a beautiful poem, technically written. ~Besa

I feel the profoundness of this poem in the religious connection that it has to it.

Till subtle changes come bubbling to the surface; When intimacy turns into indifference. Till your close friends just drift away; When intimacy turns into indifference. Realities of life and the life of expectations and sadness.. tony

Cold waves for every heated earth is a must. All colours fade one day. But the fading colour of intimacy hurts. A beautiful way of presenting the slow changing over warmth of relationship. Well done Ma'am. Thanks for the sharing.

This poem calls us to pay attention by pointing out what happens when we don't. Thanks.
