Happy Valentine’s day to y’all! Although, the day has ended on my side of the planet, nonetheless.
So, this week’s Weekly Writing Challenge: My Funny Valentine? gave me an idea. (Well, what can I say, I love challenges and love twisting them in my own way!)
Considering how this day is such a big deal for everyone, for the obvious reasons to the ones who have a valentine, and a day to find one for some of us who don’t, I decided to explore the natural tendency of the human race to find love.
Do we actually deserve the love we claim we deserve?
Just give it a read…
You claim it’s what you seek,
a love beyond your greatest belief,
yet you hide in your deepest corners,
the dark shadows of your grief.
You think another glass could
hide the cracks of your past,
but don’t you know,
this illusion won’t forever last?
You weigh love with,
whatever pleases your jaundiced eye.
But what if, that look,
is just an illuding, beautiful lie?
You seek the loving company,
yet your heart secretly desires solitude,
for it can’t bear being trodden upon
by the clash of egos and attitude.
You say that you deserve love,
yet hate is all you’ve spread,
and so high is the mountain
of carcasses of relationships dead.
You say you seek the light,
but say, how’ll it thrive,
when the darkness that you hide beneath,
won’t let it survive?
If you seek love, then do it for all the right reasons..and if or when you do find it, maybe it’s a good idea to not let the issues, trust, commitment or other, to burn out what they say, the most beautiful feeling in the world.
Till then, it’s better to stay single!
