Loving to Love

"Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are.

Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two."


-St. Augustine,Captain Corelli's Mandolin


Does love fades away......or does it grows stronger wid time???

Does it loses da initial awkwardness...or does it gains da required stability?...

Does it brings a end of possibilities.....or opens doors for a new set of dream.....

Maybe everyone of us asks one of dis question at one point or other in life...today after a year of being in dis bliss full state i hav to decide am i happier dan before or it never actually changed anything.....

My frnds says i hav wasted my precious independence.....i have got myself struck in some un needed obligations......

maybe dey r rite frm dere way....but still wen i close my eyes to imagine a life widout her...all i face is void....

means how cud i deny those moments of warmth.....those trusts made ,broken,nd mended....

those glances of assurance.......nd words of confidence.......

wen i close my eyes i cal still feel her warm sweats in my palm......clutchin me afraid to loose....

i can feel her tears markin every moment of joy nd pain.....

yes da dependency is an obligation......but da faith is a gift....

yes da dreams have changed course....but dey haven't deserted me......now i can dream for two......

yes dere r moments of arrogance....but dey follows those moments of reconciliation.....

yes, i may have my strings attached but somewhere at da end of they day.....these strings hold me in place.....

and after all this i can say i have enjoyed all da moments i faced.....we faced.....

we may hav lost da spark.....but we did lit da fire.....

love is a gift for those who are into it..........it hurts too but its nothing in front of those reasurances that someone is with u at the end of the day...........

its both a pain and pleaure when u close ur eyes and see that person and dream abt him.....then suddendly u realise that he is miles apart....or u have broken his faith......and still u know that he is with u always....

yes u and ur luv have ignited the fire that will save u frm the outer world but it may burn both of u too.....

hEY MAN, KAISA hai ?

I read ur comment on my blog. It is to be thought upon that whether it is of any value if some cheap person calls you uncool or cheap. You and we, if we do the right things at the right time, we can change even others.
Tera blog padhta hoon.

Bye

Deep feelings.

I think you should just realise that whatever we see, (i mean WHATEVER), will go away one day or the other; maybe before us may be after us. Now, you can cherish what you have, but not getting attached to it.

It seems you have become more emotional than when you named your blog. ;-)

Hey....Its so nice to learn a new viewpoint on LOVE by a teenager......

though me not so unfortunate(or fortunate???:)) to have had love in lyf.....I can sense the emotions in ur lines.....n the desperation to change the way we ppl take our loved ones as...

But yaar, itna senti bhi naa ho.....
