and I replied thus....

vitruvian said...

my take on love...i'm sure v've spoken on the subject like a zillion times...
but..hmmm..
heres an ad hoc rhyme..

in my human eyes..
through lifetimes..
the state of love varies...

to my innocent mind..
in a bygone time..
love was like a quintessential lea...

to my hardened heart...
in a then stark life..
love was like a turbulent sea...

to my inexperienced mind..
in the current moment..
love is like an entity..

its boundaries blurred yet clear...
the sole reprieve yet my greatest fear...
pain which seems like exquisite joy...
a confused lie which i deny!

i hope that answers ur question...

Now for my readers...answer me this...

ur take on love..........

love is when you can't live without the person!

Sach said...

love is not finding someone to live without but in fact finding that special one without whom you cannot live!

FELONY!

nisha punjabi said...

y do we always see the romantic side of it? i may love my family/friends/dog/diary/cushion/etc..the list is just endless.
thats one point.

the other..can v avoid the romantic bit!!!
love is the reason for waking up each morning and taking up everyday challenges ..with a belief that love is there to protect u and be with u :)

akanksha said...

Well...i completely agree with wt nisha said.Its not only the romantic side to love..bt it has many other dimensions...Love is when u care for someone else more dan u care for urself..love is sacrifice...love is life....i just cant imagine my life widout the love of people around me!!!

Well...i was also kindof missing u all and ur posts during my vacation..bt now i m back...and looking fwd to more from u....tk cr.

annie said...

Am still thinkin..will come back on it again:)

vitruvian said...

@ wildflower:live without another person....would u believe me...when i say...NO ONE...absolutely NO ONE in life is irreplaceable!!

@sachi:ok...but this quest is repeatable is it not...i can find numerous ppl without whom i cannot live,...cant i??? ;)

@ Dreamcatcher: aahhhh...now here's one!!
well....Crime and Punishment...
Isn't that when life is fun???

@ nisha:Thats true...most dont give enough importance to the platonic love..which is equally meaningful to our lives...but my poem doesn't refer to any specific kind of love..
i would write the same words whith respect to my family,,,dog and coushin as well....
but true...it is something...the idea of which help u move along with vigor..

@akanksha: caring for someone else more than ur self is the most potent recipe for havoc...
but thats what makes us human..hai na?? ;)
but..i dont believe in the "love is sacrifice"(not for major things atleast....minor inconveniences for a loved one is not termed as a sacrifice...)

@ annie: ahnha...am waiting patiently.... ;)

love has a difficult defination of itself...those woh fall in it know it..those who dont..keep wanting to...or cant stop to think bout it..
all in all you cant ignore it...

Dream catcher said...

fun u bet..killer!

Nothingman said...

Love...is madness. It can not be anything else. Should not be anything else!

IS that tattoo yours?

Looks incomplete, or did you intend to leave it that way?

annie said...

and i am still thinkin..lol!!
all that comes to mind is Love is Betrayal. Ok i don't wanna commiserate for those unluckly in love but yeah Love is Divine if it's meant to be true and forever.

vitruvian said...

@anshul:u bet it cant be ignored....
and every1 has an experience or something to say about it..

@Nman:madness!! well ya thats one way of looking at it...but its also the only thing that keeps this world sane...

@annie:hey...I dont blame u for ur thought..but u'll realize it is divine anyway....coz u are an incomplete human being until u love someone the way u loved him...
so...maybe it didnt work out...and maybe what happend was really bad...
but now u r a more holistic individual according to me...and this pain will only make u stronger...

annie said...

Thanks so much dear...I value everi bit of ur words.

Alok said...

love?? its an overrated state of being, hyped by greeting card and mobile companies and glorified in movies and sitcoms, so as to make us all desperate for it. it sux, be alone, be happy.

vitruvian said...

yeah...i do agree that the romantic aspect of it has been over hyped...

@lust: only few things are as addictive as love...

Manisha said...

hmm love is like [ annies song]
too long to post it here but :-
like a night in the forest
like the mountains in springtime,
like a walk in the rain
like a storm in the desert,
like a sleepy blue ocean
you fill up my senses,
come fill me again.

but the feelin is there till that person is ther in ur life .... when he is not there its like barren desert ..... w/o sunshine in ur life... like a fish outside the pond ..... but it feels gr8 while it last

dharmabum said...

this is not mine, but i am inclined to go with it -

love is when u r loved in spite of being yourself.

Hi, I'm a huge fan of your poems. Wish I could magnify feelings as beautifully in verse as you do.
I have attempted a verse to keep this 'take on love' going. I would be honoured if you would read it.
Take care ...
