Faces I Remember, Faces I Forget Poem by sriram parakkat


Faces I remember
Faces I forget

In between quenches of unending thirst
In between punches of immense pleasure

Faces I remember
Faces I forget

In between the truce and tragedy of failure
In the midst of meloncholy moods of sorrow

Faces I remember
Faces I forget

Faces brown, faces that frown
Faces made, faces that fade
Faces twinkle, faces that wrinkle
Face fierce, faces that pierce
Faces of hunger, faces that conquer

In a train of thought through memory lanes
Faces that go out of sight

Through the slippery moors of evening silence
Faces that throw eloquence

In a momentary gloom of eternal misery
Faces that get wonderstruck

Faces I remember
Faces I forget

Leftover lanes like chimney stains
Remain to remind the smoke that vanish

Landscapes that minds reign shift
There is no escape from the wind that blows swift......
