Not the path of love

You left me half-way and went.

I stood there for a while and thought

Whether I should move ahead

Or go backwards to look for you.

However, I realized that ahead,

I would not find you

And the path behind was too labyrinthine..

So, I am standing where you left me.

I am sure one day you will come

To take me,

For the path of life

Can be walked alone,

Not the path of love.

    yes, it says not only the lover seeks the beloved, the beloved also seeks the lover at the same time in love.. what one feel is the effect of the mutual seeking …. the invisible connection always remain 🙂
