An excerpt from Shantaram

Some Loves are like that. Most loves are like that, from what i can see. Your heart starts to feel like an over-crowded lifeboat. You throw your pride out to keep it afloat, and your self-respect and your independence. Affter a while you start throwing people out ----- your friends, everyone you used to know. And it's still not enough. The lifeboat is still sinking, and you know it's going to take you down with it.

Id it is said...

Some loves are, truly, like that!
They smother
they suffocate
you they isolate
'n a tender heart
of friends bereft
is stripped desolate.

Thanks for introducing Shantaram
