Brink Of Eternity


In desperate hope I go and search for her
in all the corners of my room;
I find her not.

    Let me for once feel that lost sweet
    touch
    in the allness of the universe.

    this stuff strikes with wonderful visuals,
    and yet its text is upgraded by sadness.... (Report) Reply

    A poem conveying all the spiritual elements. We are all in search of eternity but often haven't the glimpse of it. God is eternal and so, eternity goes with god. Eternity means ever continuous and non-perishable. 'Let me for once feel that lost sweet touch '- this line conveys a lot. It reflects one thing in essential - 'lost touch'- the grace that the poet received in his previous births. He longs for that. (Report) Reply

The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
