Love thy name is mystery


I really don't understand how one falls in love with a stranger, who till sometime was not only out of our mind, but out of sight as well...it's strange, mysterious, but true...love does strike out of nowhere and leaves us zapped...since for those who believe that they can't fall in love...it's a serious set back... coz they find themselves completely floored, once they slip into the quick sand called love, and then they realise that it wasn't such a bad idea after all... :)
Infatuation comes with many faces, trying hard to convince us that it's love indeed, but fortunately it doesn't hold true to its words for long, since we do get to know the truth behind it as time slips through our hands.
Sympathy too guises itself as love in many relationships, but it loosens it's hold as time passes and we realise that its a feeling that doesn't figure in the real emotion called love and moves away with the harsh tides of life, making us understand that we can't hold on to things that have been jittery since the very beginning.
Then comes face value, that makes us value a certain being and loses it's value when we understand that love isn't about the outer covering...it's a feeling that resides deep within and it's difficult to dig it out until we have the right spade in our hand .... a spade of genuine emotion.
What is it that indicates that we are actually in love??!!!!???
Well.....bells don't ring...stars don't shine brighter.....world doesn't turn upside down.......
But something deep inside us binds itself to that one special person who knocks at our heart and takes it away ..that's when two lives start thriving as one ...
Love is mysterious, no one can ever explain it in words..it something that sinks in with time...that's why, they say, it's very difficult to find true love....and when you find it....you get everything in life...everything that gives one the feeling of being complete :)

Love thy name is mystery,
as mysterious as can be...
we try to solve the puzzle,
and get puzzled with thee...
you give light to those in dark...
and show the way towards eternity,
Love thy name is mystery, as mysterious as can be...

Once fallen in your pit,
one likes to be there forever...
Is it some kind of a prank you play,
with those who're scared of your terror??
Sweeping like waves on the sea shore,
Sitting like a branch on a tree..
You grow within us everyday, and spread on us with blissful glee,
Love, thy name is mystery, as mysterious as can be...

You knock many hearts, you rule many minds,
It's in your clutches one breathes the scent of relief...
It took time to realise the fact...
that you are indeed a pleasant breeze :)
Love, thy name is mystery, as mysterious as can be...

Nice poem. Nice narration. To me, if the email does not come at the right time when you are expecting and your heart goes "phat phat phat" in faster pace and you are worried, it is love.

Have you ever thought why it is called falling in love? We don't fall in to friendship or marriage.We make them or enter in to them.But we fall in love.Like we fall in to a pit or a trench.Exactly.It is accidental,and not thought after.And as easy as it is to fall in to it,you can fall out of it as well.We see it all around happening.
Love is a fantasy.

I think doc antony touched the subject matter of fact.

It is the state of the heart, well also of the mind , if it goes with the heart Then I would not say one fell in love like one tells about falling over the precipice and into the abyss.

love doesn't happen, rather finds its way... love is never expressed but rather understood... that's why love is mystery... the definition of love varies but the essence of love is always the same, a feeling, a bond that can be sensed but not spelt... love is the driving force of life... loved these variations of love... thanks sana....

Bikramjit said...

yess indeeed love is a mystery so true... but pity these days people dont value this LOVE, its yeh nahin to woh sahi , woh nahin to koi aur sahi ..

but yeah love is something that happens its not planned or calculated ...

the poem in the end is simply marvellous i loved it .. brought some memories and some

anyway good post ...

Sana,

Love is a very interesting and most written about subject. Poets, musicians, writers, intellectuals, intelligentsia, Gurus and ordinary people like me have written about love and yet we don't understand it.

I have to admit despite reading and hearing so much about "Love", I find your post the best description of love. :)

Margaret Cloud said...

There is just a feeling that comes over us when we see that special one. Sometimes it works out and sometimes it is not to be. I like the way you describe this emotion, and true love comes in many discuses. Thank you for coming by.

A New Beginning said...

Dr. Antony thats an amazing description that youve given over here...yes we indeed fall in love rather than entering it :)

Very true Anil :)

Loved your comment Jayant, youve described it very well!

Yes Bikram, in some cases one can see the most useless display of love thats just skin deep...but genuine love runs deep inside and it shows.

Im honoured A, but it sure is a difficult word to describe...do give me the link to your post you've mentioned in the comment, would love to read it :)

True Margaret..thanks to u too :)

A said...

Sana,

You have already read my story on the first love. You had left a comment. That was my first ever attempt to write something. I have to admit it is no where close to what you write but probably good enough for a computer professional.

Your profession says 'Education'. But it seems like you teach or are involved in education of literature? Is my assessment correct?

A New Beginning said...

Im an Editor A... take care of a newsletter..but planning to go into academics ..lets see :)Honest writing is always beautiful and that reflects in your posts..keep blogging and inspiring :))

A said...

Ah. An editor of a news letter. That explains. It shows in your writings. I am glad to be connected to you. If your news letter is electronically available, email or post the link here. Thanks )

Darril said...

Its true, and the poem is beautifully written.. Keep writing..

A New Beginning said...

Its an internal newletter A...and Im glad to connect with you too :)

Thanks Darril, the quotes in your recent post are amazing!!

Hello Sana:)

Wonderful post and a deep amazing description of love.

Many times we think we are in love but it is only infatuation.Many people don't know the difference between infatuation and love and they get into a life long relationship but this relationship doesn't last.It is a pity.

Enjoyed reading your lovely poem.

I only know of great love stories like Romeo and Juliet,Anthony and Cleopatra etc.But there are also people who fall in love after marriage.No one talks of this love.Perhaps it is taken for granted that if a person marries another, they must automatically fall in love?

Best wishes:)
Joseph

hi Sana,

I can relate to every single word you have said here, Love is all we need and Love is all we work for..

much luv as always...

A New Beginning said...

Mr. Joseph, when we love is a word that comes in every situation, be it an umarried couple, or those who are married....the bond just strengthens after the vows :)

Hey Aiz..thanks!!:)

Sorcerer said...

Beautiful...
Very true and beautiful writeup..

Loved it!

A New Beginning said...

Thanks Sorcerer!

RGB said...

A mystery indeed. And unconditional. And selfless. And...it goes on. Love has no beginning, nor an end. And it feels good to love and be loved :)

Loved the way you presented it.

Whirlwind said...

Love is an enigma. It means different things to different people. But what love really means,no one knows as yet.Nice post Sana.:)

Punam said...

Sana: Your picture of birds brought me to your blog. But the post was a pleasant surprise. I love birds and have posted some pics too.. but that was quite a while ago.
As for this post, it is a bone of contention; for one can never know what true love is; it can only be felt if one welcomes it in life. Some want to experience it but are very scared... some have experienced it, but havent been reciprocated.. strange are the ways of love..!
Yet, it can not be defined. It's like a jump over a cliff.. once you leap, there is no way of turning back. It's either heaven or hell ahead.

Beautiful, Sana. Beautiful!!

Manivannan Sadasivam said...

Couldn't be better expressed, Sana.

Beautiful, as ever! Loved it :-)

AJai said...

That was nice Sana. Felt like a close friend was beside me with a hand on my shoulder giving me advice on love and stuff. He he...:-)
