Its not always LOVE you see..

Before You go on with what I write, go through these posts…


You loved true and pure.

For You loved as You are.

But You loved a mask He had put on his face.

To lure You.

To play with You.

As though You were a toy.

An object.

And a mask is not a real thing.

The mask has fallen.

The Man remains.

Naked. Revealed.

Wash away the mask from your soul.

For a mask is not a real thing.

And it was not Love. But an illusion.

And The Man who Loves You…

Shall never do this to you…

Wash away the illusions.

Let just LOVE survive.


  1. This is great...'It was not love but an illusion'.It's sad that people can't differentiate between love and desire.And whatever be the case, the blame is always put on the girl because it's the easiest thing to do.
    I can see and feel that Rajat's post has initiated some serious thought process.
    Keep writing :)

  3. @Jaspreet No dear it was not Rajat's post which initiated me 2 write this. It was yours.
    i jus wanted 2 say this 2 you in regard to what u wrote and so i wrote the post. And Rajat's post too wants 2 convey the same message
    and that is:
    "Please understand Love. Don't mistake desire, lust, illusion, excitement and odr feelings for Love. For LOVE IS ABOVE THEM..."

    @Mayz This is what i wanna tell people. Mask is the person you thing you were in love with. but its not always love dear...

  4. Hello Gazal..

    For you from my book and I think my page too has this:

    Oh, what an enormous task
    To remove one's own mask
    For it is difficult to trace
    When did it get on the face..

    And I don't know if you visited my page for OSI Prompt Love where I wrote this which perhaps you are saying..


  5. @Rameshji Oh my God Sir... I loved your lines. I shall go through your older posts on your page soon. God bless.

  6. Hey Ghazal you know what, I have tried to write a poem in Hindi for the very 1st time, after being inspired by some of your posts :)

  8. @Jaspreet Thank u. Read ur post. all i'll say is At one point of time, I too would have gone 2 think on similar lines, but d same night a friend send me this:
    "When people walk away from you, let them go.
    Your destiny is never tied to the one who leaves you. It doesn't mean that they are bad people. It just means that their part in your story is over."


  9. First of all Gazal, you have a wonderful name, I never met anyone with this name ever before.

    Next, the poem is really nice, so true that true love shall dissolve all illusions. Its really disgusting that people tend to use others, for mean motives, pleasure maybe, but it hurts...

    Blasphemous Aesthete

  10. @Gazal:Oops!!sorry..GAZAL and I agree with BA that ur name is really beautiful and unique :)

  11. Love kindles just unexpectedly
    and nurtures with no expectations.
    It is quintessence of holiness
    semblance of sacrifice
    immortal ,unpretentious
    it is 'beauty' epitomized.

    They say we fall in love,O ne'er
    we just suddenly begin to 'rise'.

  12. "Even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you"
    - Kahlil Gibran.
