I have a feeling.

Love can sometimes be a devastating feeling.

I decided to write about my personal experience of being in love with somebody.


I have a feeling.
It has no mercy,
Dawned without a warning.
Symphony on a desolate street

Every note pierces.
Rhyme is off beat,
Rhythm is off context.

Write a text.
Lay a prose.
Words are motionless.
They carry no flow.

Passion of a river,
The silent momentum.
Raw unconstrained motion.
It cares not for ad corpus.

What was, what is
Akin to a borderless ocean.
Gone in a moment,
Too quick to comprehend.
Too vast to understand.

One could but only follow.
Let the current take you,
Venture into the abyss.

What words can not describe.
Seek help all you like,
Knowing not what for.
Ignorant of symptoms,
Can a healer prescribe?

Irrational happiness.
It comes in waves,
Unsolicited, unexplained.
Such is your presence.

Sudden despair
As mysterious as can be,
Dawning without a warning.
Such is your disregard.

The God’s lesson,
A reminder of times prior.
When stone was flesh,
When it pumped blood.
Until it was bled dry.

The reason?
You are the God’s reminder
That stone can beat and bleed

Well I thought this was an excellent introduction to your work. I enjoyed the many ways suddenly being in that state can leave us.

Irrational happiness.
It comes in waves,
Unsolicited, unexplained.
Such is your presence.

Sudden despair
As mysterious as can be,
Dawning without a warning.
Such is your disregard.

Ah yes. The sudden realisation we are no longer in control in this new world of the senses. Another has suddenly intruded into our safety or comfort zone bringing all sorts of challenges.

Some delicious, some devastating…all encompass the heart on fire.

Yes, you have to be vulnerable to have a loving relationship. You have to put yourself out there knowing it could all fall apart in a moment because of the wrong word said or some slight action or lack of action.

Excellent, a perfect summation of love’s power; what was that line:
“Love is worth nothing until it has been tested by its own defeat.” ( Creina Alcock ).
