Where is that line to be drawn?
Defining loyalty to your partner
Where does it go beyond harmless flirtation?
Where is that point at which thread to be cut?

Is it an oath to preserve all your smiles only for your partner?
All complements only from partner to be respected and others banned?
Is it closing the human face of a human being?
Is it stopping oneself from being what they are?

Does it mean fighting with oneself when a bad dream throws up?
Tracking and taming one’s mind and every thought that gets developed?
Or is it just being what your partner wants you to be
And seeing only wrong things even when it’s just a smile?

Is it the ability to love a person with all his flaws?
Is it the capacity to share and bear someone in the rough patches of life?
Is it the freedom to share that little crush and attraction and laugh at it later?
Is it the bondage which ties one back to the partner at any situation?

I get curious, I want to know
How do you define your terms of loyalty
What importance is given and how strongly is it taken
And what happens if your lines are crossed!?

loyalty varies from aspects of each relation. Loyalty to partner, boy friend, girl friend, father, mother, children, boss, company, religion, faiths, values it varies highly from relation to relation based on the value system you believe upon & adopt upon. It varies from time to time , from place to place & from each aspect to other.
But the commitments mutually agreed & accepted in a relation by heart should be maintained for loyalty!
of course change some time inevitable.
Man is the child of situation & situation will not know the law!
It is highly debatable as there is no existence of universally acceptable rights & wrongs!
Thought provoking nice poetic article!
