Being Loved

A lot of my friends asked me to pen their stories (uh-huh love stories) for a god knows why reason. I used to deny this all the time until one day I could really extract something positive out of this word, this feeling, LOVE.

This age is one of the cruelest companion making you flow away with the winds blowing at the periphery of success. Mind is stampeded with unknown attractions and growing weaknesses. How difficult is it to centre your mind at the things that really matter when you are overwhelmed by the juggernaut of feelings inside your heart? Indescrivibile! 

I was speaking to one of my friend who was narrating to me his indefinable love for a girl he was incapable of eradicating since three years. He arranged expensive gifts on her birthday and traveled states to just have a look at her! Inspite of this, what he had stored in for himself was unrequited love. 

At first, I was judging him so hard for making a fool out of himself for so many years. But soon I realised, how strong was he to love so passionately without expecting anything in return. 

We know love to be obstructive, destructive, cynical, bleaker, and all those negative words one can attach to it. The ones who say its serene are inhabitants of the blue moon. 

Sometime later I decided to look above this canopy of negated feeling and focus at the sunnier side. No one pushed me to it, the sun just shone upon me. No sooner I realised ,love is the only feeling that can grant you immense power and take it away in fraction of seconds. Its upon you to decide for how long you want to keep the ball at the opposite side of the court.

Love can empower you. Love can make you drown yourself into madness, soak every bit of it or keep you drenched, forces you to follow your passion and heart with unbudging conviction, unshackle your strength to do anything and everything and what not! Its one heck of a sentiment. But love does not make you die, do unreasonable things or beg for it. Thats what YOU do. 

You cannot make anyone love you but can that deter your love for him/her? Is unrequited love the only thing we should crave for? 

I have been in one sided love. I have loved passionately. I have felt empowered and vulnerable. I have stayed up nights waiting for his text and cried when he did not. But can that make me feel feeble? 


At least, you and I had the power to love so immensely! So what if he/she didn’t? 

Just don’t let this destroy you. You are lucky enough to have loved this much and still not be loved in return! Someone really worth waiting for is holding-up for you to give the kind of love you deserve. For now you have to let go the ball from the opponents court and hold it in your hand. For if he is the opponent, he could never be your side and it isn’t worth waiting if you have loved immensely and sufficiently. Even if you wait, don’t allow the opponent to do a goal without you being defending even once! Love makes you wait for no matter how long but that should not make you regret when you stop.

I had stopped with no regrets lined up. What I got next in life made me sigh!
