Fool's Query

Fool's Query

A Poem by Vidya Bacchus
"

What is love?

"

                  Fool's Query
Why do you ply me with riddles,
That I do not understand ?
Why placate me with whispers,
That have no meaning said out loud?
Why do I choose you with no regret,
My decision worn with pride?
 

While your love is only shown ,
When  there is no one to bear witness,
What kind of love asks you to hide,
And condemns you to the dark ?
What kind of love hurts like a dagger buried in your chest?
Could this be the emotion sired by cupid's bow?

 

This kind of love that you portent,
Could be misconstrued as hate,
This kind of love that you lay siege to,
Could tear my soul apart,
Were I to convince myself that this  indeed  is love,
Then call me a fool because that title I have earned.

Beautiful poem and very well written......i really liked it! And i agree with you......why do poeple tell riddles instead of just speaking their heart, when it comes to expressing love.......and more particularly, in front of others. They will never know love in its true form.
Great read! Keep sharing!

great write, vidya! I felt a lot of pain in this poem (imagined or otherwise) and I loved that it was a mix of a love poem and a heartbreak poem, because you actually don't see poems that combine the two all that often. Nice work :D

Ha, the age old conundrum, why can't people just be honest and say what they mean, a telling piece, well done.

The poem is pure logic. Always good to question hidden love. I like the flow of thoughts leading to the perfect ending. No weakness in the excellent poetry.

Thank you again my friend:)


The fact that you realise you're a fool for being in such a situation, but staying in it regardless is the most powerful message of your poem. That helplessness one feels is very evident in your writing.

Thank you for sharing Vidya, I really enjoyed this one.

I can relate to this all too well. It brings to mind, a song by Mayday Parade called "12 Through 15". Believe me, I completely and fully understand the point of this piece. Well done.

I felt this one one to my my core. Why is it that some act this way? If you feel it, show it, no matter who is watching or where you are. Very nice my friend.
