Detachment

I have to overcome you
I have to pass through you
You are an infinite attraction
I have to detach myself from you

You are very colorful and soothing
Anyone would want to have you for them
You are very consoling and protecting
Everyone wants to be in your arms

You have the capacity to make people your slaves
They beg you, plead you, lose their mind
You have the will to make people dance to your tunes
They die wanting you, needing you, deprived of you

I know I love you, I have realized it lately
I do not want to love you, my cautious decision
I reach out to books, to people to help me pass
Help me get detached from you

You can be as mild as a lamb,
You can be as strong as a lion
It’s now my will and my decision to stay far
To get detached from all sorts of attachments towards you

Essence of this poem lays in:

It’s now my will and my decision to stay far
To get detached from all sorts of attachments towards you

ನಿರಾಸೆ?? ಅಥವಾ ದೂರವಾಗುವ ನಿರ್ಧಾರ??

ನನಗೂ ಗೊತ್ತಿಲ್ಲ! ಯಾಕೆ ಇಷ್ಟು ಬೇಗ ನಾನು ಹೀಗಾದೆ ಅಂತ! :)

ಮುಂದೊಮ್ಮೆ ಗೊತ್ತಗಬಹುದೇನೋ...!
