To the Lover…


There was passion…
But lack of promises,
That’s where you went wrong…
I hope you’ll know it someday.

Passion and fire…
Are indeed essential,
But you must know…
It’s your love I yearned for, not lust.

A girl needs love…
Care, affection and warmth,
She needs to be held…
And made to feel safe and secure.

You could give it all…
But it was a promise I needed,
It was something you could not offer…
Commitment was just not your way.

You might wonder…
What with all the time we spent together,
The so called magic we shared…
What else could I possibly want?


It was just not good enough for me honey…
I needed something more,
You could never understand what I wanted...
And why I wanted it.

I m sorry things happened,
The way they did…
All I wanted was a word…
That you’ll be there for me…

But now… even if you have a promise…
I m sorry, there’s no passion left,
Something in me has died out…
There is no love left for you anymore.

You left a hole in my heart...
And I've patched it up,
And whatever you do now..
Is not gonna change the way things are.

Nicely expressed. . Its true that love is a beautiful feeling which gives us the most exciting moments in our life. . and also sometimes the most painful ones too. .

Hummm, Sad...I feel sorry for the guy...All a girl understands, is that, that the guy only wants lust!Most often a girl is too theoretical about notions of love ( like cliches...Care, affection and warmth)...and a guy never can communicate what he holds for the girl....a terrible case of mis-communication, i guess....but i may be wrong too...tc, nice reading this.took me back to my teen years.

@ Renju
Thank you... and very true... what you said..

@ ZB
I know guys who can communicate what they feel... this one was for those who really don't.. They often mistake lust for love and go behind females... Wanting a female is different from loving her... I chose to disagree with what you said. Of course, mis understanding does occur,but then if its meant to be..nothin can stop it from happening :)

"Something in me has died out…
There is no love left for you anymore." ...

It rings an all too familiar bell.. [runs down memory lane to college days and relations]

True feelings, and nicely put. Remember, there is always something better out there for the ones who deserve. Keep writing :)

Beauty and the BEast said...

the delusions we live with, the dreams we wish with all our heart to come true... when it all comes down to nothing, it hurts brutally, doesn't it?

And when you move on from there, is it a surprise you dont want to go down the same path again?

sigh! this hurts too much... :|

This is good...and sadly true too!

Lakshmi said...

@ Doc : Thank you... True.. Maybe 'she' deserves someone better :)

@ Deepthi : Thank you...

Lakshmi said...

@ B and the B : Liked the comment.. makes sense..Why would one want to go the same way again? But we do it, don't we???

@ SJ : Thank you.. :)

Some things happen for the better...that is how we evolve as a person...and become familiar with our strengths and weaknesses..likes and dislikes...if he was not meant to be then someone else is:)it just takes a little of our time and will:)

PS:You have something waiting on my blog for you..check it out:)
