Rhyming With Love

SOMETHING I LOOK AT-106
BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY

RHYMING WITH LOVE

fall in love with love
feel its warmth and beauty
it will not allow you to grow old
you will remain young forever
if you are true to your love

it never ages
nor it will let you age as long as
you are in love, with its rhythm and rhyme
don’t let it silently languish
let it blossom with all its colour
or else you will only make you a machine
devoid of a heart and your true grandeur
keep it burning deep inside
don’t leave loving and living
you will be only killing yourself

bathe in the perennial stream of love
let the dirt and filth accumulated
leave your mind and body
open your eyes!
and see how beautiful life is

love never lives with apathy and negativity
ego, suspicion, hatred, jealousy and hypocrisy
get over these, that will make you a lover
otherwise, you can never be in love

not the easiest of things to be in love
it is a hero’s bravery, not a coward’s longing
always for the loved one, beyond the physical body, its craving and desire
when love is love, the unison, joy and ecstasy
are at a level, totally different of which only a few are aware of
you are to make yourself eligible for the elixir
otherwise, you will be confusing love with lust and deceiving yourself all along

let love and life rhyme
reason and emotion meet
heart and mind work in tandem
the inner and outer you coincide
let life begin unfolding its grace and beauty
living become sheer poetry
and love becomes the only reality
