Dark Desires

She and she enjoyed the same movies,
Read the same books,
Loved the same man,
And although at different points in time,
The same man loved them too.
Her love for him she could not explain in words alone,
His love for her was the foundation on which she constructed poems,
His arms so strong,
That would brave any storm,
But it was not just her; the other her loved him too.
Apart from him, there was another man,
Whom she had fallen out of love with,
But his fear of being alone overpowered his sense of self-worth
He pined for her, who was already gone.
She did not know what to do; he still loved her too.
He and she loved each other so passionately, it was madness.
The other he and the other she seemed unnecessarily heavy baggage.
Dreamed together of a life someday,
Where the others would’ve let them go,
And he would love her and she would love him too.

    Is this about victims of obsessive love coming together?

    Everyone goes through this huh? I have. (I've been the obsessed at some point)

    I dont know if I should be laughing at this.. But this reminds me of that one episode of HIMYM. 'On the Hook' – Remember??? God, I am going to miss that series like hell :'(

    I see “Stepping into another world” very, very dark.

    I've been through that too, but this poem isn't about that.
    When I wrote this, I had an image of two people in love, but who cannot be together because they are bound by certain constraints of society.

    Thanks for reading 🙂

    I remember that one! Either side of “the hook” is not a nice place to be! But this poem isn't about that situation.. But yeah, now that you say it, I guess I can write a piece on it! 😀
    I am gonna miss it too (though, WHY did they kill her??? It's like “How Your Mother Died, And I Went Back To My Ex Who Never Treated Me Right!) 😦
