Love…An Uninvited Guest

My love of you from afar,

With the fear to let my feelings ajar,

In my dither, of its scruples and percipience,

Perchance, it’s a fallacy of judgement,

Oh love! You have moved in unsought!


You are the shelter to walk in the rain, it’s said;

But you are the storm that has disrupted my esse;

With incessant aches set off in the heart,

Eternal sleepless nights apart,

Oh love! Will we ever bide unscathed?


I am carrying this secret in my heart,

The torments well concealed so far,

My silence, elixir no more,

The unsaid destroying my core,

Oh love! What’s this woe for?


Ailing, circadian I roll in bouts of anxiety,

In this battlefield of agony and ecstasy,

The pell-mell inscrutably, mystifying

Gets me enthralled into frenzies of insanities,

Oh love! When will I be unshackled and free?


All this will be until, one day I reason,

That ‘Pride and Prejudice’ be damned,

Resolutely, I will forge ahead,

To be that uninvited guest,

Your welcome alone will confer peace to my heart.
