4 Stages- - (Love) - Poem by Neela Nath Das

Your presence
is an experience
of rare love I ever
had...
My sorrows evaporate,
I feel no more sad.

In your absence
the aura encompasses
me with care,
with none I wanna
share!
I'll die soon,
my soul will
wait for you
there(?) .

How are you
without me?
Not well,
I can distinctly
see!
I am searching
you on land
in sea,
In the sky,
along the lea.
In desert the
cool breeze
which soothes your
blistered body,
it's me!

You are not in my
life, another
butterfly has
hijacked you
from me- - - - -
go be happy
and your face
I don't want
to see.

    Deep and thorough.
    Another butterfly has hijacked you, so nicely written.
    there is a difference between -in love- and -love-
    the first one is something we fall in and out of, an infatuation
    the second one is a verb, a do-word, somehting we do.
    I agree that the first one comes and goes and is associated with tremendous feelings
    Very nicely written in this poetic and melodious poem (Report) Reply
