You & I.

You and I are like stars in the sky; close, yet far apart. Like organs in a body where pumps one same heart, or veins beneath a skin supplying red to each part.

You and I are like notes in a melody, homogeneous colors in a beautiful piece of art. A verse and a lyric, a source and a spirit, tear in an eye, you are the reason why.

You and I are like birds in a flight, serene and quiet, an enchanting sight. We are pages of a book; differently typed; we are patterns of a cloth, circled and striped.

We are crests and troughs of a wave unique, seekers we are of the Great Mystique. Pleasant fragrances of flowers pink and blue, we are the two, tiny droplets of dew.

      Notorious is love, while lying in the heart unspoken…
      Coming into expression on the lips, it’s a mystery.

    Best… Seriously best… Aapko to pataa hi hai, jab koi kavita achchhi lagti hai to usme do chaar line jorr deta hoon… But ye waali padh ke itni perfect lagi ki isme kuchh add kiya to poem bigad jaayegi…

    And the closing lines… Jaan de doon aisi lines pe to… 🙂

    That’s beautiful….it really is..

    But lately I often wonder if such a level of conformity is possible? or may be it is only an idealistic perception devouring poetic minds….

      See, that’s the thing about poetry. You can write what is, what is not, what never will be, or what you wish to see.
      In this one, for example, the theme isn’t just oneness. It is also about distances. The stars appear to be close, yet in real they’re distanced by millions of miles. The differently typed pages belong to the same book, but… they are differently typed! So the whole of it is contradictory, in a way. Not entirely, but yes.

    Maria this was a succour to my soul dear.
    Just thought it was a prose when it turned out to be a poetry.
    So enchanting and magical.
    I suppose like sonnet, ballad, haiku..you will evolve your own genre some day.
    Well then, think about naming it “MyriadMaria” 🙂
    A Bliss!

        Before you came, I had felt the bliss of writing.
        But after you, I have come to experience the joy of sharing my thoughts, being appreciated and being noticed.
        All thanks to u.
