I swallowed my pride

couple pictureLove opened its floodgates wide

The day that I swallowed my pride..

That was the moment I did realize

How the dust of ego had covered my eyes

Now my vision was clear and I could see

The bounty of love surrounding me

Love, that I could now reciprocate

My existential angst I could ameliorate

When I gave up my pride, I found my voice

And realized, though late, that I had the choice

To express my true feelings or let you go

I was truly sorry, and wanted you to know

My pride had led me to thoughtlessly hurt you

And kept me from apologizing for it too

Clouded my judgment, prevented me

From feeling the love that you had for me,

Free from the shackles of meaningless pride

In the shelter of your arms I wanted to hide. 


A precious lesson I have learnt

Only after getting burnt

Is that for pride there is no place

In two lovers’ personal space

Love thrives on trust and sacrifice

To nurture love, you pay a price

You give of yourself selflessly

And you get love endlessly!
