The Other

Did you go to him

because you loved him ?

Or because you hated me ?

Loves me or hates me ,

All the petals are gone

with out an answer.

  1. Recently a KAS officer was found talking to a barrister in a car and her husband a realtor shot the lawyer dead. Later she committed suicide. Husband claims that she was unfaithful. I was contemplating on the complexity of ” Infidelity” ” Jealousy” ” Violence” ….
    If a man is constantly doubting the fidelity of a wife, can she truly love him ? Or hate him ? I think lots of love is actually hate on the rebound camouflaging as love..
    When both are dead , even if they are innocent , there is nothing left to defend.

    I never understood the destructive act of removing the petals of a flower asking loves me or loves me not…. thought it made a symbol of destruction of love.

    Thank you for your comment. It provided me the opportunity to explain the context of the poem.

  2. “Doubt” which can only be solved through conversations, unexpectedly took a life. It shook me knowing the context which I probably deciphered wrong. Thankyou for explaining it.
    If there was doubt it definitely was not love. It destroys the meaning.
