    In the passing of time intimacy turns into indifference or vice versa. Dear Jasbir madam, you have so nicely inscribed here, let it be quoted few lines...

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

    It is beautiful philosophical poem. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Jasbir,

    Time just flows past
    And you never notice
    Till your close friends just drift away; Just common in anybody's life.

    But the void it creates, is irreparable:
    When intimacy turns into indifference. Beautifully rendered..

    Intimate relationships need to be nurtured at all times to maintain its bliss. Lose of fascination usually result to indifference. Insightful piece of poetry well penned. Thanks for sharing Jasbir. (Report) Reply

    Time just flows past
    And you never notice
    Till one’s cross feels too heavy;
    When intimacy turns into indifference. when intimacy turns into difference.. is it not a great reality of life that you try to portray? be always loving, caring and give a smile always. then you wil not be alone in life. we all need a bit of love and we go on searching for it everywhere. is it not true?

    It is so much of a pain when intimacy turns into indifference.... This change may not be sudden, but over the years there is a gradual dwindling of warmth in relations and we never notice it until all those dear ones who have been intimate once become quite cold and strange! Great write! (Report) Reply

    I have taken this poem as a philosophy that can be generalized on the entire universe. Any thing or a person at a distance appears beautiful, but when it comes close enough we start watching the negative aspects of it. If it is merely a thing you can get rid of it, if he is a person having blood relation ship it is not difficult for you to ignore the negative aspects. The actual problem arises in the relations of two friends or that of a couple. If it is a friend you are shocked to loose him, but if he or she is your spouse you start regretting your past when he or she started coming in your life. If love is a true love, I mean acceptance of each other with not only the positive aspects but with the negative aspects, too, the indifference starts dying. The marriage is saved for the welfare of coming generations, a sacrifice, the climax of love. (Report) Reply

    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.
