Loev

Once upon a time,
love changed.
It was too tired
of the position it held,
for years,
too tired of sleeping straight,
so it twisted a bit-
E and V
exchanged their positions
and now it’s read Loev.

*In conversation with love*

“What has changed?”

“Everything.”

“By just a change in spelling? Why did you change?”

“I didn’t want to change the spelling of course, but no one would accept the change without a changed spelling, so I did. Coming to the latter part of the question, I guess it was required. Some sects of people weren’t allowed to love before, they can loev now.”
“Go on.”
“you see I have always been about acceptance, but you humans tend to change me like you wish, lately you made me all about scars, you didn’t allow to love people of same sex, your bedtime stories were about a girl and a boy and never about girl-girl and boy-boy and it was okay until people of such kind were not identified, but continuing the stereotypes further was something mean. You can’t enslave people who aren’t like you, everyone has equal right to me. Someone had to change, so I did.”
————————————————————————–

Don’t think that it’s just spelled wrong,
for it was love’s choice and
maybe a gift in disguise.
It expanded boundaries
and generalised a bit,
traumatized some
but placed colourful smiles
on the lips
of a million unaccepted,
unheard voices.
It turned queer.

“That’s a brave move, but do you think it will have some effect?”

“Well, someone had to start, right?”

“Agreed. So any expectations?”

“Well many, but humans have always let me down, so for now, just that some will accept the change.”

“Any other improvement? Like as you said humans have let you down and I agree, but I also know that there is a reason and its simple, your definition isn’t clear, giving people leverage to misuse it in name of caste and creed and what not. Some came up with ideas like one sided love and all, don’t you think you should define yourself more properly, identify boundaries, mark what’s love and what’s not?”

“Everything logical is loev; everything that frees you is loev.”
————————————————————————–
There are no boundaries,
for loev is madness.
It can be a midnight conversation
or just a daytime dream,
it can be your travel companion
or you yourself,
and to say you loev someone
more than yourself,
well that’s not loev,
it’s something else,
Maybe, an addiction
not good for health.

I loev her,
and it doesn’t matter
that ‘I’ is a he or she for her,
what matters is loev.

That man kissed his loever
and it was a beautiful sight for writers.

Loev isn’t about gender anymore
because once upon a time,
love changed.
It was too tired
of the position it held,
for years,
too tired of sleeping straight,
so it twisted a bit-
E and V
exchanged their positions
and now it’s read Loev.
