Trapped...

Trying to interpret your thoughts, I wonder

If an enchanted, magical spell you’re under.

Do you feel the ecstasy and the pain, I ponder

Or is falling in love with you one big blunder?

Sometimes I feel you’re too scared to commit

Or is it that you don’t believe in love even a bit?

Trapped by love and passion, I am ready to submit,

Falling hopelessly in the depths of an endless pit.

This captive heart is under your dreamy spell

In your thoughts forever I long to dwell.

Are you in my destiny, only time will tell

And till then I pine and suffer in the living hell.

Whitney Houston - Saving All My Love For You

      This is a sad poem, on being hooked to an emotion which is however being controlled by someone else by their attitude.

      How can one let this happen.?

      what happiness can one get in carrying on?

      Obvious answer is,

      cut it loose. SOS. (Ones Own)

      Yes, I do not know about you, but many experience this pain and sense of being trapped, which you have portrayed so excellently in your poem here. Who knows the ways of the Lord?

      @Hari Love is indeed a trap if it is not reciprocated. But hope is what keeps one going.

      Thank you Manatita. Lord's ways are mysterious indeed but always in our best interests.

      Yes, love is so uncertain at times. Some people unwillingly become the victims of blind love. Ouch! The daggers of venomous love! But... but... there’s always a hope. Fantastic poem.

      @Surabhi Hope is what keeps one going in search of love. This reminds me a quote from my favorite novelist Paulo Coelho: ‘ By risking failure, disappointment, disillusion, but never ceasing in you search for Love. As long as you keep looking, you will triumph in the end.'

      There are living hells which may be far worse than the one you describe here. "Only time will tell."

      Love makes us feel so vulnerable. It's the one thing we cannot control.

      You expressed the pain that can be associated with love very well, Swalia. Great rhyme scheme too.

      Terrible when someone controls another so much. Belief in self and self-worth is the key but it's not always easy as love can be so powerful! Well-crafted poem.
