THIS FUNNY GIRL CALLED "LOVE"





Today as I walked away from class..I felt a little tug in my heart ..
The winds were blowing cold and though the skies were not grey , it was dark..

I was thinking of love ,life and other simple things ..

Men have walked on the moon but still cannot figure how not to get a broken heart ...
Don't do this , don't do that,maybe all you have to do is say the right things , or behave in a certain way ...I don't know ...if someone has a solution ..pray will you tell me so...

Some say , have no expectations ..because that is definitely a bringer of doom...
But I'm sorry after you have had a glimpse of the beautiful moon and the stars above..
You want to zoom around the milky way...
That's only human I say ..

Can anyone of us really live without expecting ...
Well in my opinion it only comes when love has flown and there is just a sharing ..

Im sure there are people in this world who live life in a very different space ...
Who can be in the moment and still walk away, like it makes no difference ...
Are they the ones who are actually content and are searching no more ..
I wonder how it works ..to be in a space , where you can feel so deep and yet walk away in a heart beat ...
Are they callous or just in a place sublime ..

Will someone please explain this , to this wondering heart of mine ...
How to love without expecting ...
How to let go without hurting ...
How to smile without pretending ..
How to laugh without choking ...
How to hold tight without holding ..

No man is an island that is something I truly believe ...
So then how come some of us can be so detached from all life's bringing ..
And some are so attached that it becomes heart-breaking ...

So how do you live ...how do you choose ...
Am I chemically imbalanced or am I a foolish goose.....
We all want the same things in life ...
And there is no difference you see...
Love, happiness , babies all in varying degrees...

We all want to wake up to the sun shining in the eyes of the one we love ..
To walk into the sunset to the songs we love humming in our head ..
To hold hands and say nothing at all..
To hear someone's heart beat till the break of Dawn..
To laugh at silly things...
To dance in the rain..
To have tears of joy and not pain ...

So what do you do with the memories you make...
Do you chuck them and walk away , like it was not a very tasty cake ?

Try and live each day like it were our last , some people say ...
But don't you think , we would all be a little selfish and uncaring ..
Parents, family and a few friends..
That's what makes life wonderful till the end ...

Love is ...
I really don't know ..
Sometimes, she is there, sometimes hovers around and sometimes leaves through the back door ..without even leaving a note..like she don't care...

But if you find, your soul-mate , if such a thing exists...
I'm sure it will be complete bliss..
There would not even have to be an exchange of rings ..
Because if that's an assurance that it won't go away ..
It's a silly way to live ...

Love should be imprinted in your heart not stamped in ink..
It should be able to transcend and meet above the clouds ...
To be felt without a sound ..

If you wake up in the morning and break into a smile , while snuggling in your bed..
I think you have found love ..
Even if you don't know it yet...

Because that's what she does..
This funny girl calked love ...
She makes you laugh , she makes you sing, she makes you do unbelievably stupid things ...
She makes you talk like you never ever have and whispers in your ears..things that you would never have heard..
She sits and flits around and disturbs you when you are working ..
And stands at traffic lights and winks at you when you driving ...
And steals your food when you not looking ..
And runs around the garden tossing maple leaves , when you are mowing ..
She hides in closets and messes your clothes...
And sometimes leaves you little notes..
And jumps on your back when you were least expecting ...
And when she Stares into your brown eyes and smiles , you are promised a thousand things ...
And then she runs away laughing...
So all you have to do is wake up and start believing ...

I like her this funny girl called "love"...
And when she comes visiting ...
I welcome her with open arms and a cup of rich dark hot chocolate ..
And that's the only way I know ...because she never asks my permission, but jumps through the window, or barges through the door ...
And when she leaves, yes it's heart-breaking ..
But know , she will be back again ...
Because frankly, I am and will always be ..
Her best friend ...

  1. i am not much of a romantic but that's the best poem i've read on love. i feel like the mistake we humans make is in expecting to find love in the form of our soulmate. if that happens then you are the luckiest person on earth but if it doesn't happen it doesn't mean that love has forsaken you. you just need to keep your eyes open and you can find it everywhere. family, friends, pets and even plants. wouldn't it be great if everyone could find love in nature. be in love with this earth. with the life force that breaths through the soil. i try to find love anywhere that i can. and when it leaves for a moment or i become too self absorbed to stop noticing it, i look for inspiration and your blog is one of the many places i can find it. you should seriously write a book and it would be best if you write it straight from the heart like your blog. keep writing, keep cooking and keep smiling.

  5. Just love your rendition...its your heart out there in each & every word. It makes me want to believe in love; that love of this kind exists.

    I so agree "There would not even have to be an exchange of rings ..Because if that's an assurance that it won't go away ..It's a silly way to live ...Love should be imprinted in your heart not stamped in ink..To be felt without a sound .."

    And yes when you have felt a love so deep & believed with all you got the heartache is humungus & longlasting, you can never go back to being the person you were before it happened to you....

    Heartaches happen maybe because between the 2 you are the 1 who actually felt it so...but I guess we still love to love the funny girl & because she never asks permission & never will :))

    God Bless Maria...your take on life is like sunshine...bright & with reach beyond understanding.. it can be felt... :)))
