Learn to love

Learn to love long poem

me, my car and a never ending road,

that is all I have, that is all I need,

racing through unknown lands,

trying to leave the hurt behind,

seeing the sun go down

witnessing the dawn of Venus

the Orion shows himself

but my north star still alludes me

the arid wasteland, I am driving through

can use a good rainfall this year

the rain gods are not merciful though

the land remains parched and wanting

like the unquenchable thirst in my heart

the smell of burning wood overwhelms me

reminds me of the smouldering soul inside

no matter how many tears I shed

they fail to put out the fire

the wells have dried up too

and there is no music to be heard

I am heading for sea

but the water is of no use

Nothing seems right

and i don’t belong

so I drive on

to the edge of that green mountain

and feel jealousy take me over

I go blind in rage and fury

but hidden from me

the scars of the mountain weep too

I don’t know them

I don’t see them

All I want is to be green

but green with envy I am

I meet a vagabond en route

ask him his secret of happiness

“hate none, love all” he utters

how, I exclaim

I cannot stop hate from running through my veins

I weep and wail and unwittingly call names

“love all” is the key he says

“hate none” will follow in duress

but to start, love yourself

love what you are, love what you have become

no one can cheat you

because love cannot be cheated

Once found love doesn’t end

all you know is hate right now

I muse myself over what he said

and I move on towards my destination

a city where dreams come true

or so they say

I don’t have anything to loose now

have lost everything that I held dear

and I am ready to learn to love

love is the essence of life, hate none love all should be the motto of life, once a person stops hating, he/she starts loving anything and everything, from Gods creations the mountains, rivers, valleys, people all become dear………soul soothing poem indeed

An Love Agony At 10:30 short poem

At 10:30, Silence Dispersed,every edge withdrew with dark, The moon was pale, still brightening as diamond spark, At the tree, an owl hoot, at surface dogs barked. Sudden, I heeded, the sound of footsteps was appearing from the street, exulted

Love Is In Air

Love Is In Air long poem

True love is something so elusive. True love between two people is the most precious of gifts, Falling in love is not just an expression. Love is a powerful force that cannot be dissuaded. Love requires a lot of faith.
