Promise

I will be easy company; the blur
Of what I longed for once will fade to space.
No thought that could discomfort you will stir.
My eyes will painlessly survey your face.

    I too can relate to this poem.
    I think there will be many who would relate to this poem.
    In the trails of life things move on the way when you feel it be necessary.
    A blured faced.
    Void of emotions.
    Ignoring the past,
    Why?
    Don't ask me either.
    Promises need be made to self.
    simple matter of realisation,
    Just can't be explained.
    .................................
    Beyond grades.

    self effacing, and non-intrusive, a state of witness, great thinking, Vikram.

    I relate to this poem...it significance is very personal. It has successfully articulated the way i felt in a particular situation in the past. Thank you Vikram.
