My Concept of LOVE

Love is an abstract noun

It is seen all around

Does not confine to a single one

Manifests in different forms

Keeps you awake when your parents are down

Clasps the hand of your little one

Makes you flutter when your spouse is late

Puts a smile when your loved ones gain

Leaves you aghast when they are in pain

Manifests in different forms

Anger, duty, sacrifice or a routine you perform

Deny its existence you may

Beside whatever you say

Love keeps the world moving around

 Friendship, devotion, respect are different forms




  • L. B. Mek

    I like your use of 'manifest'
    an adjective that's both noun and verb
    a maturation of Latin's
    'caught in the act'
    or so google translates..
    a fitting, choice wording
    for your powerful portrayal
    of the choices, we're empowered
    by our very existence, to make
    or have blind fate
    dictate, for us..
    'caught in the act' of life
    'manifesting' our whims
    into our horizons ideals..
    (an intriguing write, worth pondering
    long, after we've finished reading
    thanks for sharing
    and Happy New Year!)

    Happy new year Mek and thanks for your motivation

  • woundedheart

    Love is truly a multifaceted gem and you captured its variety ☺

    • Thekkinkkattil

      Thank you wounded heart. Love is a balm that can do wonders. We seldom recognise this. A teacher punishing a student may be out of love and not of vengeance but at that age we never understand

    • spilleronsheet

      And this is one of the most beautiful description of love that blossoms

      The love with which we are born

      Boundless and undefined
      Without contours or restrains

      No particular relationship for love to specify

      Thanks dear poet for such a warm and beautiful poetry

    • Thekkinkkattil

      Thank you spilleronsheet. Can I just call you SS. As you say it's boundless. Our love for poetry has brought all of us together.
