Reckless Love | Short Poem No. 20

This was not a reckless love.

No, you thought about it for some time.

You even cried about it that night.

You cried for me.

But your love was not an impulse

because you’re not like me.

I’m always changing,

swaying like a wave in the ocean.

reckless love

But your love is prudent.

You’re like an artist

carefully carrying (protecting) their prized work.

Wild, audacious,

you’re are none of these things.

But you were careful

and cautious.

After all,

it was my soul on the line.

God’s love is not a reckless love.

No, it is a cautious love

that saved a reckless heart.

(like mine).

  1. This is so beautiful. As i began reading, i first thought – “How can love be prudent? How would it be love then?” But as i read on, i felt my heart open and my soul dance – i feel blessed to read this and be showered by that endless prudent love – that never stops and never gives up on me. Thank YOU for these wondrous words. 🙂

    1. That is the same thing I felt as I was writing it – hoping it could speak to someone else as well. Thank you, Krishna, with an awesome poetry blog yourself.
