being single


midst of the day, i explore this street
alone, not lonely though
cheers of flawless ecstacy
noises defeaning the calmness around!

they walked past me, hand in hand
enjoying the music of their walk!
"cupids", i thought "are creating magic"
she returned his kiss with a smile.

should I be sad on my fate?
on my status of being single?

they say love is beautiful
it gifts a soul to share our thoughts.
aint i more lucky?
i have the whole world in front of me!

choices unlimited, options I could delve on,
emotional emancipation and the joy it gives
havnt i got enough reasons
to cherish my status of being single?

they say love is cool
status "committed" says it all!
aint I cool enough?
status "single" gives me options!

they show in quotes, in tv shows, on screen
"our life is incomplete without the holy union"
agreed, so what? do i curse my soul?
for the sin named being single!

they say love is a dream
"we float through the unknown cloud of bliss".
I am happy that I am single
I am awake, eyes wide open!

so how do you feel? souls contiguous
do you abhor your status for good?
or do you share my views, my thoughts
being single is no sin. relish it!

Catvibe said...

Great poem Sawan! I have been essentially single for almost 20 years, and as each year goes on I savor it more and more for the freedom it brings with it. At times I pine for a partner, but when I have tried I have not found that it completes me, rather it is disillusioning. There are so many people, animals and unspoken things to love, even the ground I walk on! I am rewarded by love in abundance that comes from The Unseen and Unknowable Mystery. I would not trade this in order to be in relationship, and yet, I would welcome relationship with someone where this was shared and not compromised. But if that never happens, I am not lacking. Besides, my cat is very affectionate! :-)

ki said...

Aparna said...

sawan said...

Catherine, our happiness lies right beneath us.. we have enough strength to support our selves.. commitment is wonderful if we are ready for it.. but commitment should not be for getting support, it should rather be to share your space, your self and more. until then, status single rocks :P

sawan said...

kirty, i luv u :P

sawan said...

Aparna, so relish it :P hav a wonderful time..

sawan said...

Crazy heart, i agree.. but keep minimal expectations.. and dont think of the future.. we are no one to boast of commitment for life.. we are after all human :)

sawan said...

karmanna, cheers for that :P

the pink orchid said...

sawan said...

Kajal, smile wide.. :) the world is urs..

Keshi said...

u said it beautifully Sawan. Cess was right abt ur post. :)


Being single is no sin. But its nice to hv someone by ur side, to love, to be loved by and to share ur days n nights with.

But its better to be single than be with someone just for the heck of it.

Cos there's a big difference between being loved and wanting to be loved.

Keshi.

sawan said...

Keshi girlie, u said it!! here's a big difference between being loved and wanting to be loved, and thats exactly why i luv my status :P

Simply Sur said...

There are times when we feel lonely when therz no one to talk to or share our joys n sads... but still being single is always one step ahead!! So just have fun!! :)

swati said...

Check out my new post! Take Care

Harshita said...

Damn! I am single for past 26 yrs...hehe... :)

Every phase has its own pleasures... Hang on till love finds you.

Margaret said...

Every status has its joys & sorrows.
Being single definitely isn't a sin.
I stopped being single when I was 19. Happily married now for years.
It's all about finding the right partner. Once you've found that person you never wanna be single again.
But, dear Sawan until that person comes along, enjoy every minute of being single.

swati said...

everything dosen't go according to the plan..this is how life is..bt u cnt stop living it..it moves on..with a tinge of that pain..
so u njoing being single nw.. :)
keep going yaar..thats the spirit..buddy

Rahul said...

hey...nice post...right from the heart..this is wat I call life !! :)
Have a good day. Am delighted to be adding you.

Saranya said...

Trule lines. Beings single is definitely more happier -observational view :)

Cяystal said...

Well..me is single too.
But I don't think kids are supposed to be committed at this age. whatever ;)
This was quite a puurfect post to suit this occasion when everyone is busy writing love lorn posts. Something independantly expressed. :)
But on the flipside..who doesn't like to share a half of him/her with someone else?
On a normal note-- I liked it! :)

Scattered Thoughts... said...

sawan said...

Juhi, Would do. Got a lil busy with work.. :( Thnx for your words :)

sawan said...

sawan said...

Margaret, "Happily married" is one phrase which i dream!! How do I know when i meet the right person :( i am so very confused!!

sawan said...

Swati, yeah, ters no benefit in whining bout the past :P so i am happy i moved on :P

sawan said...

Rahul, welcome here.. thnx for adding me bro. u take care..

sawan said...

Saranya, seems like uve observed a lott :P of course it is, cos the lesser the commitment, the lesser the responsibilities and the lesser the worries :)

sawan said...

Crystal, i believe there is no age for being single and being commited. fcourse the meaning of "commitment" differs with age!! :)

sawan said...

ST, yeah thats the spirit.. relish it :P

sawan said...

ST, o m g, i prefered being single cos of lack of responsibilities.. and u r giving me more of that :P

sawan said...

Sami, how do we know when the right time comes?? :P

sawan said...

Rhi, Welcome to my space :) glad u liked it and advise taken :)

Margaret said...

Sawan when you meet the right person then you JUST KNOW.

When you can't think abt anything else except that person, when you find yourself smiling whenever you think of her/him, then you've met your match.

Good luck 'n carry on enjoying your singlehood.

sawan said...

Margaret, u are making me feel that i am missing the very essence of life :P ull be the first one to know wen i KNOW that my status changed :P
