What is love?

When you say that you can’t live without her, is it love?

Or when you say that you can die for her, is that a love?

When you say you see everything in her eyes, is it love?

Or when you say you see only her eyes, is that a love?

When you say you have found everything after her, is it love?

Or when you say you don’t need anything else coz you have her, is that a love?

When you miss her coz she is not with you, is it love?

Or when you say you would go and find her wherever she is, is that a love?

When you are sad coz her parents didn’t let her talk to you, is it love?

Or when you can still be fine coz she’s not gonna go against her parents, is that a love?

When you say you won’t marry anyone else but she, is it love?

Or when you say you will wait for her forever, is that a love?

Love is not about being with her

Love is something more, something beyond

It’s about going one step further

About sacrifice


It’s a way of living everybody aspires but few can hold!

बहुत अच्छा! बधाई। सच कहें तो मुहब्बत का अर्थ समझना उतना ही दुश्वार है जितना कि स्वयं को ढूंढना। आप जितने जवाब ढूंढो, उतने नए सवाल खड़े हो जाते हैं। कभी आपको लगता है कि आप जवाब के बिल्कुल नज़दीक पहुंच गए हैं, लेकिन आपको अचानक पता चलता है कि आप जिसको मुहब्बत समझ बैठे थे, वो मुहब्बत नहीं थी। आपने जवाब ढूंढने की कोशिश की, आपको पुन: बधाई।

अंत में इस से संबद्ध मेरी एक ग़ज़ल का एक शेर …
"मुहब्बत की ग़ज़ल का लोग मुझको लाम कहते हैं
मगर क्या इश्क़ है मैं आज तक समझा नहीं मौला"

wow man tooooooooo good...didn't realised there is a shakespeare in our college....really good yea :)

jack said...

hey nice one, but i will differ a bit, love doesn't necessarily means sacrifice. its give and take of everything even sacrifice. if that sacrifice is from only one end than its foolishness. than thats the time you know that you need to move on and thats not true love

@jack..agree dude tht if u as well as she cant sacrifice its not true love..n this is wht i tried to tell with this poem too when i say 'its a way of living everybody aspires but a few can hold'..very difficult to find a true combination
