Sterile Love

Despite intense love, the relationship may sometimes fail between mismatched couples and lovers. But does love wither away altogether? The poem gives a perspective.

Sterile Love

She and I were, like two comets, vast skies away;
Swimming across the space, we drew ever closer
Until like one single star did we the sky sway.
We rolled on as though before us there lay
An endless path to traverse together.

Jointly drifting; sometimes we gravitated
To each as though we would never pull back,
And sometimes we each other repudiated,
Like two opposite poles of a magnet breeding hatred;
On a boundless journey on a shared track.

Closely swam we in space trying to tame
Each other until our paths were destined
To diverge with a wide angle between them.
Ages have elapsed since the divergence came
In our stellar ways, as fate had ordained.

As cosmic nomads we are bound to cover
The universe and be whopping light years away;
Yet my telescopic mind will forever
Capture her faint dismal beams from afar
To spark a pain in the heart and darken a day.
