Love and Passion

love and passion

Eyes burning with desire
and a heart full of fire,
ready to gamble anything
to get what he desires.

It is his choice
to feed the beast inside,
knowing that there
is nowhere to hide.

It is his passion
that brought him back outside
from the dark cave where
he stayed for many nights.

A dream was enough to
bring his passion back to life.
The dream of a girl whom
he needed by his side.

Soon he became close with
her leaving everything else aside,
no regrets about the rules he broke
and the money he lost to be by her side.

It was indeed memorable
the time he spent by her side,
but true love is always tested
by time and tide.

Passion has a way of bringing out
the best as well as the worst in us.
Unfortunately, it was the worst in him
that was then brought forward.

His burning desire for her led
to her being sad.
She constantly worried about
what he will do next.

He loved her too much and
never left her alone,
even for a moment,
leading to torment.

Finally he became
too much trouble,
and their relationship
was reduced to rubble.

He shot himself
in the head that night and
waited for her to forgive him
so that he can come back to life.

Perhaps he will come back
to love her again.
His love is not something that
even death could restrain.

I always had a love for writing even when I was still in school. I used to collect good quotes and admire them. I enjoyed the beautiful play of words so I started writing poetry. Life is too short to understand, but it is long enough to stand with your fellow man.

    Oh my goodness! A great poem, but such a sad ending. Of course he could be thinking in their next life she might love him, so he ends this life sooner. Interesting story, Abhimanyu. I like it.

    Thank you, Phyllis. I feel good that I was able to convey what I meant. I forgot about entering the category and thank you for reminding me about the image and the category. I have fixed everything now and let me know if you see anything else that is wrong.

    You are most welcome. Very nice. Well done, Abhimanyu. And you should feel good about being able to convey the deep message in your poem, that is not easy to do and you flowed right into it. Great job.

    Nicely written Abhimanyu, and a powerful tragedy of a passionate love affair. We are complex beings and often out of balance, which can cause all manner of mayhem in life. Very emotive and evocative of a love gone wrong. Cheers!
