It flourishes in emotions, transcending physical proximities
It proliferates like light, absorbed in the dense nub of the soul
Invisible, invincible, it has incandescent warmth
Doors can’t block it
Heights don’t scare it
Blockages can’t protrude it
Viciousness can’t diffuse it
Borders can’t contradict it
Darkness can’t dwindle it
Morn to night, it etches concrete something
Unbounded, it just flows
Like ether, pervasive….
Ebbing and flowing from the heartbeats
That’s love!! That is what love is!!
Evocative, Ubiquitous, amorphous
Love that pervades all
Under its velvety quintessence.
So why not let me enamor myself in this subliminal love
Wear it like divine faith
And let me accept,myself
In all my glory and grandeur.
Let me weave my temporal layers with glittering laces of love
And shine in its ecstasy
So what if i have incapabilities?
So what if I have a darkness of failures?
So what if I’ve been scared to trace my shadows
I’m contemplating and evolving……
Let me resurface my incompetences
Bring forth my unpleasantries
And now love myself with renewed ethos
Love myself with the love I have been splurging
On others for the sake of love
For the sake of acceptance.
How exemplary this liberation is
Freedom from pretensions and facade
And basking in your temperaments
Without delusions and derogations.
Love is ceaseless, seamless
And Love We all deserve , unabashed… wholesome
Inspite of all our shortcomings.
I rendered it wholeheartedly on me
No I wasn’t selfish or guilty
No I wasn’t egoistic nor a narcissist
I looked at myself and loved
My experiences, my fancies
My muse, my affinities
My shortcomings, my failures
My indulgences, my vanities
And love made me believe
I was born to be real not perfect
I was born to be myself and be loved
Self love is the most corrugated idea of love and has been slandered for being selfish and guilty. But the truth is that self love is the focal point of any love theory or thesis. We hide our weaknesses or unpleasant shades from the world and put up a facade for pleasing ourselves or others. But this darkness is misleading, and rather should be groped in, because in it lies your strength. Your real self, your awareness, your acceptance is your power, your prerogative and your freedom. The mind reigns supreme and heart shines when the shadows of self doubt melt away. So indulge in self love because that is the point from where the magic begins!
