Insploration

What makes a person who has dedicated every moment of their life to the one they love decide that death is actually the only way to make that person appreciate it?

They say that whoever it is, who'd compel such an action, isn't worth it. Perhaps not. What is it in love that makes a person unable to cope without the other? Is sadness then another indicator for our capacity to survive as a living entity, like fear? Is sadness a red light that tells us that it's time to cut loose, to move on, to remove the shackles which tie us together? Because if that is true, why has love itself become synonymous with love? It defies understanding.

But sadness doesn't mean red light - stop. It isn't black or white. Sadness as an emotion becomes a mode of communication. A sign held up to the one who should care: "please care". Please be the one who cares enough when I cry. Please be the one who'd hold my hand when I need you. Please.

Since when did love go from want to need? Since when was need and want mutually exclusive? They intermingle, inexplicably. Inexplicable is what defines love. It defies understanding, it defies measure. Escaping the breadth of scientific postulate, philosophical principle. Beyond common sense.

Is this insanity, then?

  1. "Inexplicable is what defines love"

    When it's love it's always inexplicable, and maybe it's some sort of insanity as well, but everything we do that relates to our love seems so justified in our own view.

    Love may just be a want when you don't have it, but when you lose it, it feels like a need.

    1. too much sadness isnt good .. love is inexplicable and unmeasurable in scientific or logical terms .... but sadness shouldnt be a major part of love ... love is supposed to make us fly its supposed to make us forget our sadness with exhilaration and comfort - if sadness is a means of communication that ends up being futile AND if love implies that the thought of living without the other is inconceivable - then maybe all that needs to be done is to change the signs or the mode of communication :D

  2. Death is not an answer to anything but I agree sometimes, in the moment crap happens......

    Its not insanity...... Rab ki qawali
    Hai ishq koi
    Dil ki Diwali
    Hai ishq koi
    Mehki si pyaali
    Hai ishq koi
    Subah ki laali
    Hai ishq..
    Girta sa jharna
    Hai ishq koi
    Uthta sa kalmaa
    Hai ishq koi
    Saanson mein liptaa
    Hai ishq koi
    Aankhon mein dikhta
    Hai ishq..
