Waiting :A Poem

There are some blueprints

tucked away In the dark  crevices

of the workshop in  my mind


Some unfinished songs of desire

A  few broken melodies of pain

and some unending verses

wrapped in trauma of separation


Maybe we were  never meant to be together

and were destined to move away from each other

The disharmony,

the  asphyxiating  silence

and a abrupt ending


We said goodbye  and went our separate ways

without a sigh

but our story  continued to blossom

between the earth and the sky


In different lands, in different arms

A perpetual  ache  plagued  us

We  became restless

Seek each other where ever we could

in whatever we could

Our  nights became  haunted

by the ghosts of yesteryear

Our  days  mundane

monotonous and soul less

gaped at us like bottomless pits


We  began to crave

crave for some drizzle of love

amidst the dryness and melancholy


Wedded to different people

we led  a difficult life

How our heart-strings

got tuned to each other

we know not


It was a rough pathway

we  had carved

Writing became our passion

Through our words

we  began to compose and create

visions  of longing and togetherness

around us


We  danced, sang,  made love

with our poetry


Words took wings and

began to soar  from one continent to another

Our emotions began to travel

to meet in perfect harmony

in another place , another time

filling the empty spaces

of our lives


Each moment  an irreplaceable miracle

brimming with hope

and those long forgotten  desires


We poured out our hearts

sang the sweetest songs

and then slowly and silently

we drifted apart


I began to hear

the echoes of my own words

All that I composed came back to me

tired, bruised, rejected


And now

I sit amidst the splinters of my dreams

with some thoughts of you

tear-stained and crumpled

folded in my lap




Just in case..

  1. I often feel that we humans lead a far too complex life in terms of physical movements and personal friendships. Anyway, this one touched me. I think you may have made a leetle spelling booboo, unless it was intentional (in which case smack me!) – you’ve got ‘ubrupt’ for ‘abrupt’.

    Thanks for all the poetry and posts! Most enjoyable. Now, if only someone would cover us in gold for all this hard work…
