'LOVE' A MERE INFATUATION?

I loved a girl

Madly, but vocal

No hide and seek in our expression

People are envious to see us in rendezvous

They are jealous to our music in chorus

We never made a tune in solo

Love made us oblivious to the vicinity

An elixir, we enjoyed profusely!


I thought I have everything to give her

No regret I bear to soothe her

My toil, sweat, joy and tears

All are aiming to inundate her with fervor

We both are happy

Indulged ourselves in reverie

A jocund company, I enjoyed with heart’s content

Emotions thus engulfed me in vibrant

Love, love, and for love alone

I am eager to dedicate my all mundane echelon!


One fine morning

The day began with usual shinning

I was in a merry making mood

As today is my birthday

A grand occasion to celebrate with gay

Expecting a gift of distinction from her end

A delightful bouquet rose in blood stained

Indulging in solitary

Spinning wild tales with romantic essence

And her majestic presence

Utterly absorbed in my own domain

Where apart from her none are allowed to invade and reign!


Abruptly she appeared and asked, ’how much do you love?’

Resolutely I answered, ‘it has been resolved without quandary and fuss.’

‘What you can do for me?’

‘I will dedicate my heart for thee.’

‘Will you can give me a sum of money?’

With an iota of hesitation I gave the sum instantly

That was all I had till then by hard earning

I became instantly literally destitute to respond to her yearning

She immediately departed, kept me in utter perplexed

I immediately clouded with despondence, unable to recapitulate

Abrupt event made me nonpluses

Emotion thus devastated my impulses!


I eventually absorbed in my thought

Where she is my epicenter, in dilemma, whether she is in deep gorge

I myself was accusing for my weird trait

Why did not I accompany her, to save her from distress?

I myself was feeling guilty

My sweet heart must be confronting distress and wry

Her face is still in my memory

She looked pretty worried; her face was revealing untold misery!

I was in utter jittery

Could not be comforted for a moment, fretting with agony

Blaming myself the reason for her distress

I foiled my own bliss out of callous ingress!


In the evening sunset sky

I lonely observing the crimson hue

Gradually darkness engulfing my milieu

Suddenly I heard a knock at my door

I opened and received a letter

From the beau whom I adore

My mind was brimming in tune galore

Opening the letter I found a tiding

A splendid gift the letter itself is bearing!

There my beloved one thanked me heartily

As I enabled her to marry a guy, who is more worthy

She expressed her sincere concern

Advised me to marry a beau of my compatible sanction

I discovered ‘love’ an infatuation

Can devastate an edifice long time I took to construe

Out of self-imagination, an image which hastily needed to show adieu

I am now almost bankrupt

Not mere money, but my fancy and imagining craft

Once more I construe a new realm

Where ‘love’ have no room to reclaim!

@debasish majumder I am swept away by the story and the poetry in your writing. Thank you Debasish.

A tale nearly as old as time. The 'I would do anything for you / I will leave, cheat, bankrupt you as soon as I get a chance' idiom is nearly as old as the painted Grecian Urns, definitely as recent as any tabloid celebrity divorce. Signpost up ahead, Welcome to MGTOW ~ warned you we did.
