Intricasies of love

I was never prepared for this.
Yeah.
This game that some folks call love.
I did not know that I could suddenly and unexpectedly be caught in the web of love.
I thought I was so strong, so bold and so courageous to be conquered by love.

But, look at me now.
I sing love, eat love, drink love and sleep love.
Love has become the language that I speak.
Love has taken over the better part of my body.
Love, and not blood, now runs through my veins.

I don’t get time to hate anymore.
Hate?
I’m even shocked I was able to spell that word, because it is no more in my dictionary.

I didn’t know love could do me any harm, until it paralyzed me.
It pinned me down.
It restricted my movement, just to show me that it is now ruling my body.

I wish I could get a cure.
I wish there is, but I’m not sure.
Sometimes I scream in my dream, till I see streams of tears in my eyes.
Why is love so heavy a burden to carry?

Dream girl

Dream, dream, dream, is all I do.
I wish you were in my arms now.
I yearn for that gentle touch.
Your sweet lips which part with good tidings.
Your bright eyes that carry away all my fears.
I need you to hold me tight.
I yearn for your stupendous love.
I need your love.
I need to see your beauty.
I need you to need me too.
But, I can’t get any of these
Unless I scream until I dream my life away.
I don’t know why
I can’t get hold of you
I always mourn and cry
And you know it’s true.
Unless I dream.
I can’t see you.
Unless I dream.
I can’t feel you.
Unless I dream.
I can’t have you.
Unless I dream.
You are not mine.

MY BEST FRIEND

What will I gain if I fight you?
What will I gain if I insult you?
Nothing. Just nothing!
You are human just as I am.
You sin just as I do.
Although your wrongs are different from mine
That does not make you the only devil on earth!
The fact that I see your wrongs,
Does not make me a saint.
The Supreme Judge is up there.
He knows better than I do.
He alone can objectively pronounce judgement.
You cannot hide anything from Him.
He knows our actions and intentions.
I will not judge you, but He will.
My job is to help you become a better person.
If I cannot help you, why should I destroy you?
