' A Poem That Woke Me Up! '


I dwell
In the absence
You left behind

That absence occupies me

I dabble
In the silence
You fill me with

That's my silent connect

This heart
Still sings
The moonlight sonata of yore

That silent score sustains me

My breath
Still draws in
The perfume dabbed on this skin

That silently nurtures hope in me

Every night
I bury tear for you
In my heart

That quenches my heart's thirst

    Indira, this poems seems to keep you awake all the time...a queer kind of absence outside and the same thing within, silently shedding tears for it to fill up...I hope to God that the void is filled up very soon! (Report) Reply

The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
