Ramblings of a soul

When will you understand my love?
When will you listen to, what I am saying,
and understand, what I am not saying?
When will you see, what I am hiding?
When will you know, what I mean by,
what I am not trying to convey?

When I pretend to be angry with you,
I want you to do your damnest,
to coax me into smiling at you.

When I walk away in a huff,
I long for you to run after me,
And bring me back to you.

When you look into my unsmiling eyes,
I want you to sense my sorrow,
And chase my cares away.

When I try and choke back my tears,
I need you to hold me close,
say nothing, but just be there with me.

When I say,” I hate you,”
I want you to say,” I love you too”.
I don’t know what I need,
But I want you, to understand.

  5. I know what you mean Sulekha, but hey, love wouldn't be so fascinating, if it was all so transparent.
    The huff being the means to create an argument, so as to make it all up again.
    The greatest passion is when finally either one says sorry…we all test the bounds of our relationships.

  6. Jim, thank you so much for your wonderful words of wisdom…yes, sorry does make it all better. Why do we need to test the bounds of our friendship, why can't we love unconditionally?

  7. The complexities of love – so tiny a word to cover such a profound emotion. Brilliant Sulekha! I read volumes between the lines and was genuinely touched. Perhaps that is why they say that, women are from Venus and men are from Mars : )

  8. @Swati, thank you for being a SS friend and for your lovely compliments.

    @Yoshay,thanks for appreciating my poem, women are a different breed altogether…
