I am in love



to know love
i fell in love with you
before i could know
what love is all about
i melted and lost me in you

what remained is not i and you
but we, a single entity
a single pair of eyes
that sees nothing but you and me
largely blind to the world outside
a single heart that never differentiates
i from you and the identification is so complete
i feel as if i am you and you are me
nothing in between

i am your feminine tenderness
you are my masculine virility
i am your flute
you are my melodious tune
I am the oyster
you are the perl inside
i am your eyes
you are my vision
i am your ears
you are the symphony of life
i am a physical body
you are the consciousness within

a single soul we are
that never desires salvation
but thousands of birth on this earth
to come here again and again
to fall in love and lose each other in the
the beauty of love and and move ahead on the path of ceaseless mirth, bliss, joy and romance

if that is love
i am in love my love
and i will be in love with you forever
here and hereafter

    It’s interesting to note that Love like other concepts is something the poet looks at , largely subjectively . The perl almost certainly is a pearl . The distinction between loving and being in love appears to have been blurred in this poetic reflection .
