Why?

Aarthi Karanam posted under Poetry



I often wonder/ why did we fall in love / when we have nothing in common? I love the mountains and you the sea; / vegetables disgust me/ while you can literally thrive on them/ I am three and twenty / but I have the temperament of a toddler / while you share my age yet sport the wisdom of a saint/ I sleep and wake up when I please/  I care not for time / but anyone can set their clocks by you! Why then did our hearts beat for each other / when all we have in common / is the uncommon?! Ah! I see a delicate thread connecting our souls/ igniting our hearts and that bound us in love; / a legacy of pain and hurt! _____________________________   Penmancy gets a small share of every purchase you make through these links, and every little helps us continue bringing you the reads you love!
