Threads Of Time

Threads of time unraveling, through my nervous fingers,
Veil of sadness and darkness lingers,
A few sweet moments drop from sunny skies,
So many corrupt and mischievous lies,
Stole my younger years.
In the fertile valleys, the mountains rose haughtily,
On the moist earth, insects create their own space, daringly
They are small and insignificant, like the way I used to feel,
Then romance gave me a worthwhile chance,
Birds flew from the trees with glee,
Music released my inner desires,
I felt so free,
Uplifting a wealth of undernourished emotions,
Building a complicated maze,
To find my way out was difficult,
As I was in a constant daze,
But my heart knew the right direction to its centre,
Life catching me and giving me the gift of a mentor,
Learning from wise minds and creative spirits,
Wandering in a world, where there is no cherry on top,
Cruel intentions, were cutting themselves a slice of my cake,
Then I became the cook and baked my own creation,
The result, a better me, was the true revelation,
Threads of time brewing in this simple rhyme.

    You have excellently woven this web of threads of time...
    Wonderful compilation of intense thoughts and assumptions realistic.

    Madam, I was out of the PH when my site got crashed. Now I am back resubmitting my poems and adding the new.
    Let us share the old intimacy as PH friends.

    Dear, the world is give and take
    Gives a little from there
    Takes a little from here
    Provides us all delicious cake

    Knowing not the Nature's course
    Sometimes we lose
    Sometimes we gain
    Why are we full of remorse! ! ! ! !
