LOST!

I'm not here at all. Consumed by the demands of life, Lost in the swirls of doom. I am a shadow that had dissapeared. All that is left is an echo, not all can hear.

Love me do!!!

Written quite some time back, this piece seemed like ust theright one to start with...

Plz be very generous with your comments...

Love, love me do.

You know I love you

I’ll always be true

So, please, love me too”

-Beatles

Nah! I’m not a die-hard Beatles fan, nor can I claim to be an admirer of their kind of music. Infact, the first time I heard them wasn’t more than a few months ago, and I still can’t name all four of them. IF they were four!I would, again, be wrong if I claimed that I fell in love with their songs the moment I heard them. As a matter of fact, their “please, love me too” had me retorting, “How desperate is that?”Before you jump to conclusions, let me tell you that this is not about the Beatles; this isn’t about their music or about my opinion of them. It’s all about the “Please, love me too”The thought lingers. Now I can’t really brush off the feelings these ‘oh! So honest’ words bring with them. Think of all those times these words could actually have been spoken and realize that they are perhaps the most difficult ones to say AND the most natural ones to think about.



‘Westlife’ aren’t one bit off-mark when they croon


“I’m too shy to ask

I’m too proud to loose

But sooner or later,

I’ve got to choose

And once again,

I’m thinking about

Taking the easy way out…


The number of times your heart screams out, only, your tongue refuses to surrender and words remain unuttered. It’s funny how less often we tell people around us the love we feel for them, fearing a lack of response. It’s perhaps the fear of indifference or maybe just the narrow range of relationships we perceive the term “I love you” as being applicable to.Then there are instances when this feeling of un-proclaimed love becomes so integral a part of the relationship; you hate to bring it out in the open. There’s this phone call. The voice at the other end says, “Love you!” and the spell is broken, the magic lost! That’s another chapter, of the same story though.


While my mind has been churning out these thoughts, the play list has moved forward and I can catch Paul (or is it George? Dunno which one of them) singing-

“I don’t care too much for money,Money can’t buy me love…”



Yet again, I can’t but smile at the brutal honesty of their words.I can visualize a certain female shaking her head and thinking, “Suvarna has gone crazy, she’s writing about LOVE??” and another male nodding in agreement, glad that I’ve come around to his school of thought. Period!


The Beatles continue-


“All these lonely people,Where do they come from?”


I think of a connection with the “Please, love me too” thing, or rather the lack of it.


What say?


P.S: If you are curious about a certain “someone” in my life after reading this, don’t bother! You are missing the whole point of it.


But anyways, “Please, love me too”

Hey
This ones cool... really i think expression is the most amazing gift that the human race is blessed with. Appreciation, confessions, letting people know how u feel about them and for that matter even a hello at times makes u feel loved.
U re right when u say its perhaps because of the indifference that it makes and people restricting the scope of the word "love" and start being judgemental about you. But i sometimes think its even complex in our part of the world. Think Indians especially are too shy to this exercise of expressing.

Nevertheless great job Suvarna. U r a good writer. Keep it up.

Hi,That was a head start.this is the first blog I read after I had a thought of starting a blog.Just made me wonder that,though I could nod in agreement with the things shared,It is not the same way I(or others)wouldve expressd the same thing. And there I guess is my comment about your post.As said, natural and honest feelings lingers and reverbrates within us and it most often doesnt find the mode-of-speech through words as the way-out or rather its lost through various filters (narrow relationships, too implicit to be told,Indian ways, etc). The connection you were talking abt at the end, is true I thought.
You are a good writer. All the best.

hello,
I just read your piece and yes,its beautiful..Love is such a complex feeling and many a times I wonder how many people (especially of our generation) really understand the true meaning.No such hatred towards our generation in particular but that have seen and interacted with many from our age group and realised that many of them have a real narrow thinking about this emotion.Great to read your piece,there are people like you too who maybe think of this emotion at its depth..really looking forward to your next one..

Shubha...
