On fancying love!

Updated on October 6, 2015

I ain't a phaethon

to drive close to the brightness of your beauty,

Admire I shall

at a phantom distance

not to get charred of my complexion,

a nagging hotspot your eyes are

torching every lad

that ogles your resplendent self,

Fantasy worth your fairness is

whisper I to these lovers

yet none pays heed

as they permit themselves

to be fooled by their madness

while cool I my heels

in the phantasmal love for you!

      True Love reaches the throes of immortality. There is a greater faith than what meets the Eye of the spirit...

      A beautiful poem. Fantasy or real? Sometimes, with love it is difficult to know the difference.
