Love Quietly Waits

.

Is there anything sadder than
Parallel lines in love that will
Never have the chance to meet

For what could be crueler than
Knowing they are a perfect pair
But intersecting could never be

If there is a place where the horizon
Finally meets the sea, that is where
Love quietly waits for you and me

  1. I’m writing this with eyes full of tears. There is nothing sadder, tragic than two people who know they are meant for each other but can never be together. Truth hurts more than any other pain the two of us have known. And this is our truth. That we will live with.

      1. The sky and the earth will never meet except when the sun dies to kiss the horizon but even that is just an illusion.

        You got me so emotional. This is just so hard. You have a good sleep ok. Dreams are the only place where the parallel lines do meet. xoxo

          1. Guess what makes it sadder than it already is?
            As if it wasn’t enough that we can never be……never mind. I only wish to say to the world:

            Don’t judge me just because I sin differently than you.

  2. The tragedy of Parallel lines. I enjoyed it so much that I’ve decided to use this story in future. I am sometimes a teacher. whenever I get that opportunity, I make sure to insert a little bit of literature there. even when it’s maths or science. πŸ™‚

    1. You are the second person who will be using a piece of me in their lessons. The other professor teaches language.
      Ankit, I am glad you connected with this poem. It is my and Nandita’s tragic reality. So in love and unable to eventually unite. Nevertheless our hearts continue to love more each day.
      Thank you for your great comments. And thanks for being a good friend.

      1. I am glad to learn that. I am not an actual teacher. I just fill in sometimes for my friend.
        I am also happy to learn abt your love and its tragedy but isnt that how the parallel lines stay relevant?

  3. Hello romantics, learn some GTR topology or plain linear algebra. Sometimes two parallel lines are the same equations written differently. In that case all points are intersection points. (when will I learn not to disturb two sad happy people?)

  4. Firstly, I would like to say that I greatly admire your writing. It inspires me to branch out from my comfort zone.
    Secondly, this poem reminded me of a poem I found while going through my mother’s belongings after she left this world. I think anyone that is a passionate person has felt this way. This poem was handwritten on very yellowed paper tucked into a book, at the bottom was written unknown author. I have googled the heck out of it and cannot find where it’s been published. If you get a chance check out my new post..I gave you a shout-out and I would very much appreciate any guidance or constructive criticism you would give me.

    Full Moon Song

    And what if your vows prove false in time?
    And, what if I’m left to weep.
    Is the rose less sweet in its crimson prime,That its beauty cannot keep?
    Yet tonight the moon is full,
    And the heart is richer that chances pain
    Than the heart in cotton wool.

    Then what, my love, if your love is brief?
    Tonight you are mine to kiss,
    And better a century of grief
    Than never an hour of bliss

  5. Another beautiful poem. You always take these simple ideas and transform them into a string of beautiful and angelic words. To say the least, I loved reading this.

  6. Love always waits in one way or another but it never gives up hope.Thankfully, poetry is the perfect intersection where two unrequited souls can join. Beautiful words, Andrew. You write so movingly. πŸ™‚

  7. Ohhh, this gave me chills. No…lets have them (you and someone?) meet. We never know the future. Standing on a precipice? A wise friend, just suggested to soar. πŸ˜‰
    I predict love will win!

    1. It’s bittersweet that you could relate to this. I’m sorry you are going through or have gone through the same. But yes, like you, we too believe in true love all the same. Nothing else is worth believing in, don’t you agree? I the Lonely Author’s partner would like to thank you on his behalf since he is unavailable to respond to comments at the moment and whenever that happens, I fill in for him. He will love your comment. Thank you once again Whitney, for your empathy. Be well.

    1. You are kind to say that. I’m sure my Lonely Author will say the same. I’m filling in for him since he’s a little tied up today. We do this often, I assure you. He will get back to you shortly. Thank you on his behalf.
