BECAUSE OF LOVE

I have a heart
Whose magnetic eyes see it all
From the sighs to wishes from afar
Right up to fantasies I can never fulfill
But I stay rooted
Because of love

II
I have a mind which murders all
And bisect to disect every detail
From my traditional thoughts
To my bold stance
And how you wish them gone
But who will I be without them?
I know someone even I won’t recognize
Your voice tells it all
But you stay because of love

III
I live in words
And you live in rocks, loving wood
When I love the worship of living trees and air
Loving the space where I freeze our beautiful memories
In words none can erase
I know how hard it is for us
But we stay rooted because of love

IV
I know I love showing my back
You love turning me right back
Slapping me with reasons
Urging me with facts
Raining amidst thunders of truth
You do all
I know it is because of love

V
What will love give to two
After strapping them like goats on its pole?
A question which hangs on our crowns of security
But love me because of love
As I do
Just because of love
When love flees and frees
Let’s then look back at its prison in apt emulation
All for nothing but love
