Love; In A Fix

Cutting the wings

of my imagination,

triumphant you seem

in holding my dreams.

Your victory will be a pyrric one

for I can’t afford to succumb

my love to a single mortal being,

but to the Eternal; the Unseen.

Loosen your grip of my heart.

Let me roam like a bird, and

I’ll bring you love from the streams

flowing there in the other extreme.

    Hmm…it sounds like a bird trapped in a cage…most young men feel love is an entrapment in life😛

    I like the statement:

    I can’t afford to succumb

    my love to a single mortal being,

    but to the Eternal; the Unseen.

    Have you noticed that we trust and love Allah unconditionally, but never love a mortal the same way, except perhaps your mother – Love is a strange thing, the minute you fee it, you start fearing you may lose it and feel hurt.

  3. @nadia .. I’m glad it made sense to you🙂 Thanks for your comment!🙂

    @Asma .. yes, to me it sounds a very difficult thing to balance it out. It might have something to do with my frustrated state of mind most the time, but the fear of losing the Divine love always accompanies me.
    Thanks for making it to my blog after quite some time😉

  4. ooooh just lovely! I loved the interpretation of love here. Loved the lines….
    “Let me roam like a bird, and
    I’ll bring you love from the streams
    flowing there in the other extreme.” Love never gives binding to a relationship!

    1. @neilina .. strange thing this love is .. sometimes its a bondage,
      while sometimes a cage when contextualized with the greater Divine love.

      Thanks for liking the poem!🙂

      @Ayesha .. yes, man is born free so the desire to roam freely comes
      quite natural to us human beings who are shackled by the chains of
      material and societal norms.

    “Let me roam like a bird”… Somewhere we all want that in life. This sentence brought an immense sense of emancipation to me. Well done!

    Its not laziness in not coming here – I never get much time these days – in free time I jot down ideas in my blog and answer comments there – I dont spend that much time on writing – Its quickly done and posted.

    I like to sit and read all your blogs very carefully, then think about what you write, then answer it – cant do that in a hurry my friend – thats not being fair to my budding writer friends.🙂

  7. @Asma .. yes I can understand your busy life. The remark wasn’t intended seriously. Thanx for giving our blogs a thorough look and your remarks are always considered worthy.🙂 Thanx for liking me name as well!🙂 An uncle of mine; a retired journalist wants me to write with Aadil Omar hence it is altered of late.
