A withered memory...


Beneath the bookshelf I found

A diary with withered pages...

I faintly recollect ‘twas mine.

Didn’t open it since ages!


Torn letters, some lines of poetry

And a picture of someone dear.

And peeking through the lacerate pages;

Were rose petals; brown and sere.


Nascent love of a mindless heart

Who took you as his lover.

Amidst the rain and darkness of night

The pain I did discover.


Resting my head on the sill

I waited for thee, hours together

Now it all seems like a dream...

'Coz that’s all that I remember.


You came then, I think you did.

And said something that really hurt.

Can’t recall how it felt though

In shock for sure I did shiver.


I remember long ago I cried

Maybe about a lifetime ago.

And you took away my poetry

Away...as I saw you go.


You say now, I had loved you

Via the love song that you sing

It all musta’been a dream I guess

‘Coz I don’t feel a thing.

Resting my head on the sill

Now it all seems like a dream...

'Coz that’s all that I remember.

Forlorn heart, unheard cries

Was that you who broke me

I doubt as here i stand firm

Twas a dream, u just woke me..

Blank letters,torn cards

some pictures here and there..

In them rested a naked body..

The spirit was no-where..

..
Beautiful..in every respect.!

Away...as I saw you go...
And by this fall i will have forgotten how
your words spelt spring,
my fingers will be conditioned to reach for
backspace in case i still type your name
right in the dark...


Strangely effective! :)

Btw, currently playing is this song by Avril Lavigne- Innocence!!
Dying to quote the lines:
It's the state of bliss you think you're dreaming
It's the happiness inside that you're feeling
It's so beautiful it makes you wanna cry
It's so beautiful it makes you want to cry

Yes, I have had a lousy upbringing. See if I give a damn. You know what, you condescending prick? Take your God and shove him up your hairy derrier. The next time you mention God to me I swear I will make you wish you were never born. Your God is an invention. A tool of politics and manipulation. A way to justify genocide and destruction. Balls to your God.


And you know what else? If you weren't the insecure twat you are, you wouldn't even care who slanders you. You won't go hunting for insulting posts about you. So why don't you cut the crap you hypocrite?

Interesting post. Although the way you use the classical diction in "I waited for thee, hours together" and the post-modern diction you use in the words 'Coz, makes it slightly weird, but nonetheless interesting to read.

However, as a critic, I found the rhyming to seem forced, at times. But it might just be me, because I hardly follow rhyme patterns in my writes.

It was good to find another poet from NSIT.
