''Shackled Love''


I curse this day, i curse this hour; 
That makes me feel so deprived of power.
With a lump in throat & a heavy heart, 
Against our wish we will have to part...

I wish we were a pair of swans in the lake, 
Then no rule in world can make our hearts break.
Because swans don't have any creed or cast, 
Which becomes a hurdle in their Love to last...

Cruel is the world who made such norms, 
Which say, looking at the religion a relation forms.
And so only love in heart is not enough, 
For us to stand against this world so rough...

So I let you part and I set you free, 
With some ''Familiar-Stranger'' now forever you will be.
You will be with Him forever as His wife, 
But your heart will beat for ME throughout your life...

With a lump in throat & a heavy heart, 
Against our wish we will have to part.
But this just marks the death of this birth, 
Let us hope we're next born as Lovebirds on this earth...

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
