Too Soon

How fast is not too fast?
And how slow is just alright?
Tell me,
which one is
Just about the right pace
To fall in love
with You

Because, tomorrow
I don't
want to cry alone regretting
That I gave in too fast
Or have that question
in my heart,
If you deserved some time
a few days more
and Love, a second chance

Because, today
I am insane
and all I do is cry
Darlin, darlin..

Just about the right pace to fall in love
Is this too soon? Too late?
What would you do
Had you been me?

Also, I feel
shaky and lost
Vulnerable, like never before
Powerlessly, in love
May be

So tell me..
before I sleep off

Wild Flower,

"There will be time, there will be time
To prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet;
There will be time to murder and create,
And time for all the works and days of hands
That lift and drop a question on your plate;
Time for you and time for me,
And time yet for a hundred indecisions,
And for a hundred visions and revisions,
Before the taking of a toast and tea."

T.S.Eliot, From, The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock

the ans:

its never too soon.
or ever too late,
U just have to take a leap,
n leave it to fate,

coz the premises,
you based the argument on,
i feel ain't right...
coz time isn't d parameter,
when fall in love @ 1st sight.

hence a conclusion,
logically i'd like deduce,
chuck d clock outta d window,
when u want to get seduced

falling in love leads to creative poetry,
having 3 days extended weekend,
leads to trash talkin all d tym :P

happy durga puja

the timing is:

as fast as
the breath
catching in..

as slow as
the breath

this is beautiful..
perhaps it is never too soon or too late to fall in love.. all the thinking is done "later" ..

wildflower said...

This time around, it's me. And it's him. And I want us to stay, us to become. Now.

Your quotes floor me, Pablo Neruda and now T S Eliot. You must be pretty smart, except that wildflower is one word. Pardon me being so particular about it, I can't help but be.

that's sweet of you, quite an analysis I see..

I was trying to season things a lil bit you know, act mature and stuff.. But whatever, love hurts, love kills :( ..

wildflower said...

Lucky Lucky Lucky

I don't want to seduce/ get seduced here. It's more serious than that you see. Yeah it is, stop laughing :P I am not taking a leap, rather I am measuring every tiny step that's taking me any closer to him. Let's be careful, lest we regret. You know how it works..

I had an awsm first day of the extended weekend..hope u had it better!! Happy DP!

What threatens to fall apart, i try to keep together sometimes with glue, sometimes with emotions and sometimes with reason.

The threat is always now, the response always now. The showing, the hiding changes nothing. If I call it love, if I call it worth, hell, bring on the hurt.

Wild Flower,
like, the hidden flower :)

"These violent delights have violent ends
And in their triumph die, like fire and powder,
Which as they kiss consume: the sweetest honey
Is loathsome in his own deliciousness
And in the taste confounds the appetite:
Therefore love moderately; long love doth so;
Too swift arrives as tardy as too slow."
Shakespeare- Romeo and Juliet

just sit against the TV.. (by turing around)
try to receive the voices, sounds, music behind u..
just receive..

try to identify the side thorugh which you are receving them..
that is the side of ur breath at that moment.. (it changes side every 40 minutes!)

every time try to identiry it and enjoy the best friend of you in the whole world - BREATH..
the link the bridge between u and the universe..

Everything human can be taken care of, Wildflower.
To the one, to whom it is intended to, it can be shown, there are means. What happens next, is your luck and the intensity of your desire.
