Please take your time and enjoy;
If love was a rose, it’d shrivel up finally,
If love was a butterfly, it’d flit away hastily,
If love was a horse, it’d gallop free quickly,
If love was dawn, it’d be engulfed by dusk lastly,
If love was a cloud, it’d be carried by wind to another land promptly,
If love was a mountain, it’d be rigid unfeeling soberly,
If love was moon, it’d alter constantly,
If love wasn’t a feeling,
A feeling immortalised by two people,
It wouldn’t last time’s endearing test endlessly.
Where art thou I seek?
Yee love of changing face
So much more; So much less
For thou, dreams too
Both united yet cold
For they don’t wait to meet
And they don’t wait to greet
Oh why the same old love
Seen through this dusty lens
Through which this life makes sense
No you; no me
Of love that is boundless
Of care that is ceaseless
What could this love become
I think but do not know
I feel then flashes show
For love is Heart
Of rosy youthful days
Through time when strands turn grey
Companion’s hand I pray
Life and after.
This rose blossoms, but its thorns draw blood
A butterfly tells of rebirth, and yet it has no home
The prize stallion wins all races, but alas it’s sold to the highest bidder
Dawn tames the horrors of night, but dusk sets them all free
The Cumulus shapes according to dreams, but changes in the blink of an eye
I seek the majesty of mountains, but cannot pass from their leeward side
The full moon beams in splendor, but only once in every month
And the lonely wolf will never find home
Until it finds its lifelong mate.
I hope you enjoy this.
If you employ a keen eye, you can see that the aspects in the conclusion I wrote, stem from the ones in the introduction Aishwarya wrote, that is;
rose, butterfly, horse, dawn….etc.
Please visit Kittyverses to indulge in more from Aishwarya, or as I’m trying but failing to call her, ‘Arya’

N.B As I highlighted in yesterday’s collaboration, this Holy week on my site, is a week for posting collaborative work. I hope you stay tuned for more still.
Stay safe everyone, Stay loving.
