Love never failed ... won't ever fail ...



She was not blind but she couldn't see; Her eyes were all right but her mind wasn’t free. She groped in the dark for eternity; until His voice gave her back the clarity.

And suddenly, again the silence prevailed; But her love for him, never failed.
It will never fail....

Hii !!

There is an award waiting for you !! :)

Som said...

Oh !! Thank You so Much for the award ... but yaar I would have loved if you would have also commented on the post ...

R.K. said...

To be frank, that notification was posted just coz of priority, i posted that even without having a look on post. Sorry !!

Coming over to the post. I really really liked that. I like very few so called LOVE songs. A music video exactly describing that situation instantly came to my mind as i read the post. You should definitely look at the Video of this song. Its in Punjabi, by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. The Song Is titled "Kandey Utte".

I've been unable to find it on net, saw it on TV.
The album is "charkha".

Som said...

@I will try to look for the song .. I am really honored that you liked the poem .. as you said you usually don't like love songs ...

What made you like it ?!

Jinxed Pixie said...

Som said...

@Jinxed: So sweet of you to read the interview ...

"She groped in the dark for eternity; until His voice gave her back the clarity."

I know very very few who try to give clarity by voices; most just add to complexity. Love, i believe, is simple.

The video of song depicts a blind girl in search of love. Hope you'll find it soon !

Som said...

@Jinxed: I am not changing topic ... :) I am serious ... mail me your address kid ... :)

Som said...

@R.K: you know .. Afghans believe that the first identity of your love is his/her voice ... :)

And yes .. love is simple .. but the situations and emotions it concocts are complex .. may be we make them complex ...

Som said...

@Pallav: Hey first and foremost you don't have to thank me for dropping by ... !!

Great you liked the poem ... There is a small secret behind the poem; when I wrote it, it was a bit different .. I tweaked it a bit before posting ...:)

Durga Nandan said...

Beautiful. :)
I feel the first identity of your love is the way in which he or she communicates.
That special vibe lets you know, he is there.. Even if it is in a mess of a thousand blabbers..

Sophie said...

Can I read that first draft? :)

Som said...

@Durga: True .. vibe you are talking about is very important :)

Its great that you liked the poem after the spanking you gave on my other Blog .. :P

Som said...

@ The first draft is vv

He was not blind but he couldn’t see; His eyes were all right but his mind wasn’t free.
He groped in the dark for eternity; until Her voice gave him back his clarity.
And suddenly the silence prevailed; But his love for her, never failed. It will never fail

:)

aishu said...

Som said...

@Aishu: Thank you, its nice that you liked it ... but I don't know if it is perfect or not ...

You Don't need to thank me for commenting on your Blog, the pleasure was mine .. :)

Keep visiting ...

Sophie said...

why he to she?

Som said...

Because I wrote this keeping somebody in mind ... so the he version felt a bit too personal to publish .. so changed it ... and see it may help too ... lot more women will be able to relate to it (the no. of female bloggers are more than male !!) .. :)

Durga Nandan said...

hehe. :D
I do not hide what I feel.. :)
Keep writing. I will keep criticizing. :P

Cheerz!
DN

Som said...

@Durga: Hehe .. great .. I like people who are upfront :)

Sure .. I hope I will provide you with more fodder in the future to criticize ...
