Poetry / Romance




Have you ever wondered which beauty epitomizes magnificence in the Eyes of Man?

The Beauty of this world have for centuries adorned the eye of Men

From the Great Barrier to the love nest that is Taj Mahal

Men have searched for the key to unlock hearts of women

Their conquest often intense and fiercely possessive

The Beauty of the heavens is one that is unmatched

From the springs of fresh water that cascades into streams in a wondrous show of falls

To the beauteous snow-capped mountains and the seas that line horizons

The Beauty of the heavens have adorned the hearts of Men

Of these beauties have they drawn parallel the joys of love!

A man who loses his heart to a woman is man who has lost the right to his heart. Wouldn’t you agree? The chance to find love is inspiring as well as magical. Love can be true or it can be construed to be true. It can fade over time or increase in intensity. Tales of true love told and written from days of old more often than not end in tragedy as it is in this case where a fifty-something year old loses his heart to a thirty something year old woman. It was love at first sight for him the day he laid eyes on her. Written in the 1st form with him being narrative, the subject of this story talks about his love for the target of his affection in a profound manner.

The poetic verses intermingled with the narrative description on his part gives an interesting variation to a love story that in the end remains unspoken.

Of a broken heart does a man die

For his story to be fulfilled

For his love is of the only kind

One that is true and in anguish makes him cry

Of a broken heart does a man die

To be with one in perhaps another time

Another time foreseen by some other Gods

Gods of Venus and Zeus combined
