Fable Of Love

Fable Of Love short poem

Lets start from where we all know it best,

Once upon a time….

Away from cruelty and crime,

Lived a beautiful LOVE,

Peaceful and contented as a dove.

Clever and witty,

With smiles so pretty.

Naive and vulnerable the soul,

The mesmerizing eyes needed no kohl.

A being that reverberated with joy,

And the innocence that understood no ploy.


Life always paid joyous dividends.

It Pains to narrate that fateful night,

There came a storm that brought in fright.

LIES and SORROW begged LOVE to aid,

HONESTY and RESPECT tried to dissuade

LOVE opened her arms in warm hug,

Did not envisage that LIES was such a big thug.

LIES also brought BETRAYAL in a disguise,

LOVE accommodated all against TRUST’s advise.

Soon LIES and BETRAYAL were ruling the roost,

HONESTY and RESPECT were being misused.

One night a cruel plot they signed,

BETRAYAL attacked LOVE, while all the rest whined.

In a brutal attack where all was so unkind,

The hypnotic eyes were lost, LOVE eventually became blind.

The eyes that spoke, did never did see light,

While for the assailants all was bright.

FAITH restored the feeling that all was not at its end

For TRUST, HONESTY and RESPECT were still their friends.

While LIES and BETRAYAL left after what they had set to achieve

SORROW repented, stayed with LOVE, vowed never to deceive.

Time healed the wounds,

Taught a lesson to always bear in mind.

SORROW often accompanies LOVE,

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
