Seasonal Love — By Amreen Shaikh

Seasons. Love. Rainbow. Sunshine. But do they end up being together? Amreen Shaikh writes a wonderful poem on Unreturned Love for #RomanticRendezvous. 

It’s not that I don’t like seasons

but, I hate the way

they change their course

reminding me of you and your love


I still remember how

you came into my life

just like the season of spring

melting the dryness of my life.


I reminisce about how

like two lovely butterflies

we spread the beauty of our love

on every flower of life.


Life was drenched with

the freshness of the silent songs

that played in our hearts

when we enjoyed the showers of our affection.


But.. the time when rains ended

it wasn’t just the rainbow of sunshine that appeared,

A shadow of our broken love

overcast our lives too..


You were always so different-

ever changing and unpredictable

I never knew this season

would fluctuate so soon to end.


I was seated on the bench

under the tree we often met,

dried leaves of our memories

withered from it.


They showed how our broken relation

has reached the season of fall

it was now waiting for

the silent arrival of winter.


The time when everything

will be buried under the snow of time.

Our best memories, the happiness-

everything would dry up.


I know that one day

the spring would come again

when you would demand love and perish it again by fall.


I don’t like the way you are;

just like seasons

you come with a charm

but leave me when I start loving you.
