Accident


I woke up early in the morning, by a phone call,
Which left me mourning.
I paced up and down in the hall,
Doing nothing but frowning.

People say obstacles come and go,
Alas! I’ve been caught by snow.
People say, we shouldn’t fear even in the darkest year,
Oh! What do they even know, how I fought my tear.

I gave up the sorrow, I gave up the pain,
I ran towards the door in vain,
While driving I thought in my brain,
Would I be able to refrain?

Once someone said to me,
Perk up when in need.
Help someone if you can,
Cause a friend in need is a friend in deed.

A distance covered in an hour,
Seemed to go on forever.
But who cares where the road leads,
Till we meet in the end together.

There she lay on the bed,
With no movement no sound,
Sedulity struck me,
With its hand cold and brown.

I know she would never leave me,
I would take her back home.
Now I only wait for the operation to be over,
Till I sit here and moan.

Minutes passed like years,
Until the doctor came,
And subdued all fears,
That feeling what can I name?

    Hey! Hey! Aditi, this the second poem I read which left impressive mark on my heart. Hello though you are 1 and four yet your poems look like as if they were written by an established poetess!

    Minutes passed like years,
    Until the doctor came,
    And subdued all fears,
    That feeling what can I name?

    Human are above all creature because we can feel,
    You expressed the feelings of a time when mind goes blank..
    I dont care about the rhyme..
    I can see the intensity of feelings you have poured into this poem.. (Report) Reply

    The picture of anxiety here is distinctive; but you have to be mindful of the way you use your rhymes; avoid slant rhymes. There's poetry in you, keep writing! (Report) Reply

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
