Era of Love

When love is being expressed in a contrived manner

Eroding all beautiful paths that took the lover to the soul

Now, feelings of ambiguity and chosen another way of love

Synthetic sentiments drape the body to lure away a heart

When flowers have lost their innocence and bloom without aroma

Paradise with artificial carpet of grass torments the feet

Perpetual summer in the land of love and harsh emotions

Souls prefer the solitude to reminisce the beautiful era of love

Only dreams are there depicting the eternal ways of love

Let love hibernate in the cocoon and metamorphose over time

Time will change and usher the illuminating era of love©

    You’ve described a painful walk through the desert wonderfully!
    We have to find ways to be genuine with each other.

    1. Thank you so much, Tanya.
      We have dragged love into something that hurts and reduced it’s meaning. It’s eternal nature and the desires of the soul is forgotten. Love is so contrived and becoming a sort of compromise. Hopefully, I can give ‘love’ a new lease of life through my writing and revive the true essence. 🙂

  2. It’s beautifully written 🙂 and while smart phones are increasing distances between people seated next to each other, we need to look up, switch off the phones and take a deep breath…and talk of our love for each other 🙂
