Never had someone loved so deeply as they.
They lived together.
Under a sacrilegious bond.
With children.
In bliss.
They aged gracefully.
Died in each others’ arms.
Yet, no mausoleum was erected or history written.
They were just two lovers -
Ordinary mortals.
But with divine blessing of loving and being loved.
Perfect lovers.

Beautiful lines portraying the love of the loved ones. Keep rocking. :)
Their mausoleum is the legacy of love they pass on to their children, n their history is written in the pages of heaven :)

Elixir - the basis of life. Did you mean this ? Or something else ?
[ Like a reference to some book ] ?

Hi Anwesa,
You have the brilliant knack of saying big things in small posts...
Like here...such a beautiful n simple story of a common love that surpasses the renowned ones for they did no big acts for the world to see but loved each other till eternity:-)

Very sweetly expressed:-)

Yeah, a Bollywood movie had a tagline "There is an extraordinary love story in every ordinary jodi".
reminds of me of my favourite romantic movie of all time - "the notebook" ..

Concealed by dark clouds
You keep shining.
Bright streaks of light
Dazzle me.
Enchant me.
And keep me waiting..
Waiting for you.

Amidst Soul-lessness

There is smoke somewhere. 
I cannot seem to figure out where. 
The lights are here, the music is here.
Has it been home here ?
Perhaps. Maybe when it did not rain.
Or maybe when it rained and it did not matter.
Maybe when I walked alone, smiling to myself. 
Or maybe when I realized I was okay.
Had it been always like this ?

Not really. 
Things clicked, took effort and blood. 
Did I do it ? Or the beasts did ? Maybe we both together,
Played this game. 
Amidst soulful solitude, it was love. 
Maybe appreciation.
Another journey, another dry spell. 
Will it ever be home again ?

All Consuming Love

Dear You,

Looks like I have found you.

In the depths of my love, I notice your smile.

Yes, the one you flash after that brief moment of joy.

I feel your fingers entwined in mine. All the time.

Your eyes speak to mine, asking me questions.

Remember the first time I told you of my affection and my afflictions ?

You must know this. You consume my thoughts, time and grief.

Glad to have met you.
