The Me

You say I've changed,
You say I'm not the same.
Remind me of how I used to be?
I'd love to hear it from you.
I don't remember myself,
The me that you remember,
From the days of old.
I don't know how I was back then,
Were not I, as I am today?
There are no images of me,
In my mind; from yonder years.
What is so different about me today?
Could it be that your vision has changed?
Could it be that we're not meeting,
at a battle field today?
Is it I, or has your perception of me changed?

Butterflies In My Stomach

 Sometimes, these days
I feel butterflies in my veins.
They fly all the way
Round my heart, in circles 
Then into my stomach.
It's a feeling so strange
Making my arms numb
My heart muscles flutter
Seems like they want;
You, to fly away with them.
These little buggers, when appear
Won't let you concentrate !

Unconditional Love ?

The only love that exists in the world today, in you and I and all around us is "self-love". There is no other love and no other greater love around us than "self-love". We do things that please us. We claim we love someone, but we do not love anyone other than ourselves. Yes, we only love ourselves. 

We claim we love someone so much that we will die if we did not get to be with that someone. What does it mean? Do we even care about the other person's feelings? No. We are trying to please ourselves all this while. In my opinion, love should be unconditional. If I claim to love someone and the other person does not reciprocate my feelings, what do I do? Is it necessary that the other person should feel the same way? No.
