‘Compound’ was one of my first poems. It comes right from the heart. Human beings are in search of constant companionship. Love is a form of companionship. It is a first-person poem about the idea and feeling of love.
The protagonist is anyone on this planet earth. Your average Joe or Jane for that matter who has actually found the better half. Being a compound means being one unit and sharing all the happiness and bitterness with the lover. They would cross mountains and jump over clouds just to reach each other. That is what life and relationships are all about.
