Introduction:- I personally believe that love is a multidimensional concept , it can’t be rigidly described just in the form of a lovers’ bond , it exists in various forms like between a mother & her child , between friends , between a master & a pupil & hence varies accordingly .Keeping this in mind through my Poem(Love’s destiny ) I wish to convey that initially in a love bond hurdles like hatred, jealousy & envy tend to pop in every now & then. These un-called for emotions tend to corrupt & ruthlessly dismantle the precious bond, but regardless of these undesired adversities if we continue to have faith in that love bond, then someday that bond is bound to blossom in it’s prime glory. Metaphorically speaking a love bond is like a diamond which has to undergo various processes/hurdles before it’s true priceless existence is established. So to capture the core essence of true love I made a short little story & tried to present it in the form of a poem as well.
One day in God’s backyard, all the emotions decided to play hide & seek. Madness was to seek while the rest had to hide. Love hid in a thorny rose bush, while on the other hand the other emotions weren’t able to find a good hiding spot for themselves. As a result, Madness found every emotion except for Love. Love was God’s blue-eyed-boy & God held him in high esteem, being the fierce foes of Love; Hatred, Jealousy & Envy couldn’t digest Love’s superiority (even in the game). Hence they revealed Love’s hiding spot , on knowing Love’s secret spot Madness jumped into that thorny rose bush & made a loud noise .The loud noise caught Love off-guard & because of the sudden shock Love banged his eyes against the thorns of the rose bush & ended up being blind. As Love lost his vision, blood dribbled down his eyes, he experienced a searing pain & he lamented his lungs out in agony. On hearing Love’s painful cry, God appeared. On knowing the details of the incident, God felt sorry for Love’s handicapped state & criticized Madness for it’s insane nature. As way to compensate for his cardinal sin God ordered Madness(who himself was haunted by a feeling of remorse for his act) to hold Love’s hand forever & be Love’s guiding force till eternity.
Ever since that day this notion has emerged that Love is blind, Madness always accompanies it & Hatred, Jealousy & Envy work as a team to harm Love in some way or the other.
In the Garden of Eden one day,
all the emotions decided to play.
Hide & Seek was the chosen game
& Madness was the seeker’s name.
Other emotions hid to the best of their ability,
& tried to be away from Madness’ visibility.
Love hid in a thorny rose bush
where he hoped that madness wouldn’t look.
Madness found every emotion except for Love
as Love was hiding like a quiet dove.
Enemies of Love; Hatred, Jealous & Envy
revealed Love’s hiding spot shamelessly.
In the rose bush, Madness jumped with all his might
to infuse in Love’s heart a feeling of fright.
This caught Love by a sudden surprise,
Love’s eyes hit the thorns & he lost his sight.
Blood dribbled down from Love’s eyes,
Jealousy & Envy smiled with delight.
In pain Love helplessly lamented & cried
God appeared & stood by Love’s side.
Seeing Love’s plight, God had sympathy
Madness was criticized & pleaded guilty.
Madness had immense remorse for his sin,
he held Love’s hand & became his kin.
Even today it’s believed, Love has no vision
it’s still regarded like an insane obsession.
Madness still triggers true Love’s every motion,
they remain inseparable like the sea & ocean.
