Unsaid


At the long distance
And far high above

And below
In the upper layers

Of the horizon
In between

Stars and clouds
Wrapping

all the empty space
of my corner less heart

All the unsaid
Frozen into an ice

Black and hard

Floating in the ocean
Of pain

More than half
Less than fully

Like the moon
Illuminating gibbous

A bun in the oven
Threatening to deliver

Lightening and thunder
Warns of a flash flood

In the desert of
Wordless world

A balloon
Without air

Inflated to its extreme
On verge of blast

No one to care
None lays an ear

Among the multitudes
A true orphan

Out of phrase
Out of expression

Burst like a cloud
Your hands are full

You catch drops

Of reliefs
In the form of tears

    Among the multitudes a true orphan....reading this poem gives me an impression that the poet want the readers to know that the human kind has left the ecological balances on its own like an orphan and thereby facing heavy rains, floods, cyclones taking heavy toll of human beings. Recent floods in Kedarnath/uttarkashi in India is one such proof treating mother nature as an orphan. Lovely write. (Report) Reply

    The true Orphan... out of phrase and out of expression
    All muses are indeed orphans... true orphans for they have no mother or father to speak of.
    And when they have suffered too much explode and the tears and pain
    and phrases and expression will come out and you catch them in nets of rhyme or hooks on lines. (Report) Reply
