Ambivalent Desires

Ambivalent Desires by Sailee Tiwari

There were roses that bloomed and faded away,
The fragrance was left lingering in the breeze,
The humans remembered its essence and touch,
The tenderness and the beauty just like cherishing the present moment,
And how it pricked them oh so stealthily,

Was it about the pain it made them feel or the elation?
Which one would they remember first?

The dew drops formed early in the morning,
Gave in to the paradise of dwelling onto the dark colours,
The colours gave a way to feel an unforgettable short slumber,
They felt no thorns and hatred as they never went deeper,
But decided to dry away and give up their lives,

But Is life all about the good feeling and not living the bad?
Or is it about knowing what gives happiness also gives agony?

And that what might be colourful also fades away,
Well, it might be about the moment of faith and then the surrender,
To what feels right and what feels amazing,
Live it all, the day today and after,
You can be a human or a dew drop that awaits no disaster.
