Romance, Love, Sex, Dislike and Dispose


Romance is a fascination
For a person, normally of the other sex
Expressed or otherwise
Irrespective of the other person
Having a similar emotion
It remains often gentle
Waiting for an occasion
To demonstrate the passion
When given a green signal
Romantic expressions surface
Which need not be anything material
But just can be a word, wink, wave of fingers
And a similar lot subtle things
Which only the partners understand and enjoy
Romance can even be maintained
Between people unmet
Exchanging these signals remotely
With no one else knowing what is on between them

Love follows romance
When people meet in person
It requires physical presence
Direct conversation
Exchange of gifts
Not necessarily physical intimacy
Expressed romance, established love
Grow fast
Both the partners longing for other
Intolerance towards separation
Restlessness if the partner is not available
Unexplainable anxiety
Irritability all these manifest
Self questioning on the genuineness of this feeling
Rehearsing a dialogue while preparing to meet
Why, at times, a strong dislike towards partner
Also surfaces
Relishing the mutual dependency
Romance and love often strike
Between those, who have a lot mismatch
With regard to a range of qualities
These are blind and at times termed irrational

Sex, the biological process
Is where all the above lead to
It is the final expression of these
And this physically intimate act
Is the climax and designed by nature
For reproduction of a genetic mix
Of the people in love
Scientifically it is the culmination
Of a wide range of physiological
And psychological requirements of
Two opposite genders
Leading to an emotional dependence
Between them
This dependence makes them feel
They are made for each other
Irrespective of what others feel about them
They live in a world of their own
Sometimes, brushing aside
Even the social resistance and disapproval
There are occasions where they have sex
Taking all precautions against
Conceiving a life which is a blend of their genes
This is the case when there is
Expressed disapproval from their families
And the society
And when one of them, if not both,
Has a family of his or her own

Community and social pressures at times
Are so strong
That people in unapproved relationship
Find it difficult to go ahead their way
With no one to fall back upon
With no one to stand in their support
They are made to feel
It is better they part with
This feeling gets expressed earlier
In petty quarrels on very trivial issues
And slowly assumes the shape of dislike for each other
Distrust engulfs them to the extent
That given an opportunity they will run away
In case of people with power and money
They even plan to eliminate the other

And probably this is what has happened
In case of two women
One committing suicide
And the other found dead mysteriously

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,

To war and arms I fly.
