A Lifetime..To Live

                     Lots of Bends in the Road
                     They All go forward.

Were you waiting for my call?
Were you waiting for me to speak?
May be, I spoke something seriously.
But, you took, everything as tongue-in-cheek.
 
Sometimes, I can be a little bit screwed up,
But, everyone is that once in a while.
But, I can not ever see you sad.
I will stop at nothing to make you smile.
 
It happened gradually. There was no effort needed.
This butterfly called Love, sat when I least expected*

Sometimes you acted blunt, lunatic, crazy and insane,
But, you were always honest about them, which I respected.

*********************************************
Why things have to be so complex and not as they seem?
Why can not , I always pour out my heart?
Can you really not understand when I am silent?
That, I am actually speaking to you, sweetheart?


I am as sure as you are confused right now.
I am not asking for anything. I never will.
Even, if I get a broken heart. I still tried.
Every time I'll see you. Time will stand still. 

The Bend in the road is awaiting us.
Do you see me, when you close your eyes?
I do not know what you think. But, if you 'go',
You will have to do away with 'hellos and byes'.

We have a glorious past. And a Future, yet unknown!
I am patient. You know, that, I have so much to give.
But, I will stand by you always. No matter what.
I will never stop trying. As I have a Lifetime to Live.

*  If you are reading this, then yes...I copied it from there! :P

  1. Bends in the road are always a trial period for love, who'll let go and who'll hold on, one never knows.

  4. Its amazing how the butterfly called Love evokes so many emotions, anxious, nervous, apprehensive, bit scared...but all in all feeling of loving someone and being loved.

    I think its a relation where its very difficult to hide the emotions, they always stand out to be honest. Of course there would be many otherwise too.

    It also teaches us to be patient ;)
    and above all with that fear comes the strength.

    As always very nicely expressed :)

    I really think my brainy is working at a slower pace...cause am feeling bit weird with this one line 'I will stop at nothing to make you smile'

  8. You truly write from your heart, Kunal, and it touches mine each time I read your words :)

    So many *beautiful* lines and subtle inferences to contemplate and get lost in here, that it is difficult for me to choose a favorite :)

    I applaud you loudly (can you hear me? :P) for taking on the challenge of continuing the journey of "A Lifetime ... to Die" Where there is life, there is hope and the same applies to love, I think :)

    I love how you incorporated the SPECTACULAR image of "bends in the roads" into your poem of love! :)

    "The Bend in the road is awaiting us. Do you see me, when you close your eyes? I do not know what you think. But, if you 'go' you will have to do away with 'hellos and byes'" ~ Brilliant!

    LoL @ the asterisk foot note! Ahh, you even injected your sense of humor into this beauty ~ love that!

    Looks like you'll be pressured to write more now :P and oh I'm sure I've written another book :D

  10. after a 'lifetime to die'...'a lifetime to live' left me spellbound..what a gush of energy and optimism and a so much of wisdom and a sense of giving...

    also love the pic..and the way you weave its semblance with the poem..deep!

    "I am as sure as you are confused right now.
    I am not asking for anything. I never will.
    Even, if I get a broken heart. I still tried.
    Every time I'll see you. Time will stand still. "..lovely..

    And i realize that my comment may not do justice to your poem!

  15. this poem reminds me of me..the effort I did to carry on with a friendship...but to no avail..got hurt twice..still tried to get back..and well I dont' have a lifetime to live for such ppl...u knw Kunal forgiveness can be granted perhaps once and even thrice too..but when there comes a time in any kind of rship wherein u don't feel valued enough..it's time to say the byes..

  16. Mesmerizing words! Wowen beautifully! An emotion unparalleled! Your poems are soul stirring. :)

  17. Kunal.. another great piece of writing and you are so right 'A lifetime to Live'.. When it comes to romance I sometimes wish people would look further forward, be patient, learn to tolerate imperfections. I'm beginning to think longevity in a relationship is a thing of the past with people opting for a less permanent 'grass is greener on the other side' approach to life...

    Great read Kunal, thanks for sharing. Enjoy the alpine scenery, hiking in the mountains in winter is beyond amazing!!.. I'll put some pics of the peaks i've 'bagged' on my blog in the near future. Thanks for visiting :)

    Regards. Paul

    Thank you for such a apt description for this butterfly. The behavior of this butterfly and the things it does..is as simple and it is complex. :D

    About that line..why do you feel weird..any idea? :P

    Or better..do not think too much about it! :D

    Haha..yes..I can hear you. :)
    Your words mean a great lot to me. Your poems are just marvelous. And your comments are so sweet! :)

    And I don't know anything about pressure...since...I mostly write for myself..and I know that..most of the times..if I am satisfied...and that I have written it honestly..it will touch others too... :)

    You may not be aware that this poem is actually my 3rd version on the same topic..I tried and tried and edited and re-edited..and finally published this version.

    And one of the versions had this line 'The grass is greener on the other side'. But I removed this..for the exact same reason..you have mentioned. :D

    Thank you for Reading and I will be waiting for the pictures.

  33. Gosh!!! Why do people keep saying to me "Zyada socho mat" :P

    Thinking,I cannot stop, especially reading subtle writings ;)

    Well I understood it when I read it again, considering the road you have mentioned :D

    ReplyDelete
  34. Beyond Horizon:

    :)

    The answer lies in your question itself. :D

    But, I understand when you say this -
    "Thinking,I cannot stop, especially reading subtle writings"

    I also suffer from this defect. :P

    I only wanted to say that...there is no special meaning in 'that' sentence which demands 'jyada sochna' :)

    But, if you think..there is something..and if you still feel weird..then feel free to share. :)

  35. Why things have to be so complex and not as they seem?
