Stranger than Fiction


Print
Love always dwelled upon me
Flowing from unforeseen directions, letting me be
Stories, movies, and novels that are written
Magical I felt, completely smitten!

Love comes easy and is no big deal
It is only a matter of how we feel
Who on earth doesn’t have their love?
‘Plenty’, I hear a voice from above!

All those years when I was growing
Oozes of galore were overflowing
A look from here and a compliment from there
It became quite a usual affair!

As I grew up and entered the adulthood
I left behind my thoughts from childhood
A girl this side and a woman on the other
All they did was shed their tears further.

Her boyfriend found another girl
And a new mistress of the husband was ready to unfurl
That gentleman sobbing in the corner
Found his wife sleeping with another foreigner!

Infidelity, adultery, deceiving others and telling lies
The World is full of them, and the inside walls of house cries
If you look at people you will see them smiling
But if you look deep within, you will find their sorrows piling!

Love isn’t easy as it looks
It isn’t as simple as described in the books
Love yourself first and the rest shall follow
Embrace what comes and ignore what’s hollow!

  9. Love is truly stranger fiction. Perhaps that's why it's the emotion we understand the least. I love a poem.

  12. Sigh... a major part of this is probably a life lesson meant for me :)
    That's how close to the truth some of it was.

  15. That's the brutal truth about life, isn't it? Sigh, we fall and pick ourselves up and learn tough love in the process.

    1. That's the thing with us! We first tend to fall and get hurt and then learn!

  17. True, we need to remember. My reason is if we don't love ourselves then how do we expect anyone else to. Such beautiful poetry, and like Roshan said a life lesson in every line.

  20. No romance novel will ever be as romantic as a real life love story. (I don't speak from experience :D )

    But yes, it truly is stranger than fiction.
