The disparity between lie and truth 

They says I am born out of truth
That is nothing or emptiness
(they say that is the only truth
Colour-less scent-less
Shape-less size-less
Matter-less mass-less
Simply nothing)
As a lie, to live a lie, in a world of lie
When you say “I loved you”
It is a lie
When I say “I loved you”
It is a lie
When you say “I love you”
It is a lie
When I say “I love you”
It is a lie
So
When I feel you don’t love
It is meaningless
But when I don’t smell
Love in my heart
A  lie?
No!
It is a truth
A truth about that lie
For it is true
I have lost the touch
Of the smell of love
(Which has become
Colour-less scent-less
Shape-less size-less
Matter-less mass-less)
The heart somehow
Inherits everything from
The womb of its birth
And it fixes every
Disparity
And keep beating

      Thank you Louis Kasatkin for these words recognizing the poem. Poetry is the best medium – simple but in its brevity – which can paint the map well with words about the life around and inside. 🙂
