They accepted her wholly

Willingly acknowledged all her whims

Dreams were linked

Of all the people lonely.

They gave in their more

To call her own.

She could not see through

The love flowing in extremes.

She drifted apart

Cringing all the anticipations

Deliquescing the dreams nurtured.

Acceptance is in both ways

One end cannot adhere.

  1. I like this message, that acceptance must flow both ways, one side cannot do the whole job. Wonderfully expressed.

    Yes. I agree. It would be good to find acceptance both ways, but dreams are such that one person’s dreams need not be accepted by another, and the excess of love feels like many other dreams are being pushed on forcefully. Maybe that’s the reason.
