Road to Love

The road to love is very slippery

If you are not careful

You can slip-slide away

Attraction is often mistaken for it

Making a misery of life.

Infatuation is like an uninvited guest

Where your feelings may not be reciprocated

So, tread on this road carefully, my friend

If you have a fragile heart

Better you not venture on it.

But if you have a heart that is robust

Fearlessly embark on this road

A fall here, a fall there and a stumble

Will make life truly a worthwhile ride.

    1. I think from tomorrow onwards I will put a disclaimer in my posts, in response to prompts; if the poem is any good, I’ll take the credit, if it is not, I’ll blame the prompts! πŸ˜€
      Thank you so much. ☺️

      1. Haha, great idea. I do that with my cooking: if you love it, then I made it; if you don’t then someone else did πŸ™‚ You are kindly welcome πŸ™‚

      2. Oh, I could never fit into your shoes literally and figuratively πŸ™‚ So, let’s do this side by side on that same path through life, just on different continents πŸ™‚

      1. Never an expert but I have seen many a hearts break. Some bounce back, some don’t.
        But this was a lighthearted take keeping in mind the prompts. ☺️
        Whereas what you have written seems to be coming from an expert, in these days of social media. πŸ˜€

      2. let me take a bow, in the context of social media.. instead of being humble like you. bouncy hearts are definitely great assets, especially if you planning the road trip.

  1. The age old saying it’s better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all comes to mind.

    Punam, simply beautiful and gentle reminder to be careful and protect your heart along the way.😊❀️
