Love's Song Is Love

I did not just leap into your arms,
I leapt into a life anew.
You banished darkness with your charms,
But smiles I met were meek and few.
 I knew you'd save me from all harm,
My share of bliss, nevertheless, stands due.

I'm no one to give you chances,
You're none to give me pain.
Love's song is love,
Not a melody for loss or gain.

You think you can read my mind,
I still have a story to say.
Your love has been precious and kind,
In a unique, incomprehensible way.
I feel lost even when I rewind,
Why? May be you'll know someday!

I'm no one to give you chances,
You won't find my tears in rain.
Love's song is love,
Not a melody of unspoken pain.

Holding your hand was a brave risk,
It beckoned disbelief to my door.
You were perfect and pure and majestic,
But tell me, was I an eye-sore?
You built our home brick by brick,
I lent it soul- Did you ignore?

I'm no one to give you chances,
You're none to cage my soul.
Love's song is love,
Not a melody of broken hopes.

A girl's heart likes to follow,
Please lead, but don't walk ahead.
Her voice is soft and mellow,
Try hearing what can't be said.
Care, caress, pamper and let her know,
Make love with words, not just on bed.
Under your shadow, she seeks to glow,
Save her feelings from an imminent death.

I'm no one to give you chances,
You're none to shun me away.
Love's song is love,
Not a melody gone astray.

  1. The penultimate stanza moves me to a state that can be best defined as suspension of disbelief. How I wish.

    Nice font, btw.

    1. Yaar! Aankhein khol di tumne meri. I just realized that this is happening with most of my writings of late. May be I am finding motivations in sad narratives, movies, songs or stories of other people's lives. I don't know. All I do know is melancholy is a very powerful inspiration for writing.

      Delete
  11. It has melancholy written all over it....but tht is exactly why it is so very beautiful...:)

    1. Exactly! Although I am talking about my own piece of writing, but I too feel that this song could come out so well was because it combined love with melancholy. Hit formula!

      Delete
    2. Love and melancholy is truly a hit formula...n to think abt it...the purest form of both is necessary to really understand even sumthgn abt life...:)

      Delete
  12. Your writing in any form is brilliant Saumya. I love this piece of yours. And I am observing from your last few posts, your writing is more focussed towards SADNESS. Any specific reasons?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No specific reasons! Just watching a lot of romantic movies and feeling a little under pressure. Just that.

  14. "Holding your hand was a brave risk,
    It beckoned disbelief to my door.
    You were perfect and pure and majestic,
    But tell me, was I an eye-sore?
    You built our home brick by brick,
    I lent it soul- Did you ignore?"

    I am telling you, I have always believed had the oldies had their way, they would have christened this literary delight as the eighth sin. Honsetly pleasure. PLEASURE.

  17. Beautiful .....

    I have known that feeling.... and these words do justice to what i have felt within...

    And the title couldn't have been more apt...

    And my favourite:

    "Holding your hand was a brave risk,
    It beckoned disbelief to my door.
    You were perfect and pure and majestic,
    But tell me, was I an eye-sore?
    You built our home brick by brick,
    I lent it soul- Did you ignore?"

    Again, beautiful ....

  18. This is beautiful. To name my favourite parts of the song, I'd end up mentioning pretty much all the lines! But "A girl's heart.." : especially moving.
