Theme: Longing

Me and my Plight

Day and night you are in my mind
I fail to understand the plight of this kind.
Consoling my heart not to be so involved
Unknowingly get trapped in tranquility
When your memories recall.

A foolish wish that you respond and talk
But you prefer to be silent
And disheartening me you mock.
I look for you in my dreams
But there too you are silent
Unaffected, insensitive, unconcerned being.

My voiceless sufferings
may not be understood by you
Then why do I desire
to be with you?
Under the pretext of work
you pretend to forget me
and here my restless heart desires to
be in the world of you and me.

Will wait for you
as worldly materialistic
pleasures will not give your soul delight

For sure someday you too will feel the pain
like me and understand my plight.

Comment The suffering of one, will hardly be understood by the partner..
that's the world and life around ..
I keep on wishing that she will understand me...
Will come back to me...

but never.....

It's the plight of a human being...
irrespective of the gender..

Loved it...

Comment Dear Rani I am very greatly honoured by your comments and happy to know that you understand my longing for someone and you have interpreted it so well. Yes its not only a poem My words are spontaneous flow of emotions that just gushed in my heart without my consent . Love is divine and unconditional . This intensity and platonic love will remain forever . Thanks for your generous comments and I am happy to know that you too feel the same for your loved ones the way I do. Love is life .Thanks once again dear Rani .

Comment dear mohini
when i finished reading your LONGING, my eyes were brimming with was like as though, you wrote it for me.
Dear, i dont know whether these feelings are expressed for some one
towards whom you feel very intensly. I, somehow,do not feel like dismissing it like o! its just a poem. these feelings are from the heart.... they are from spontaneous over flow of emotions.
S. I also feel the very same feelings but without EXPECTATIONS !

Comment Dear Seema Ketkar you have interpreted it very appropriately . I am happy that you understood my different perspectives.Great your comments have truely elated me . Thanks a lot dear for your motivational comments.

18-Aug-2013 10:13 AM

Comment very very intense and symbolic also. the one who fails to understand the plight and unables to see the suffering could be anyone from God to beloved or the dear one from friend to children/ parents.
Or it could be my own inner self.
silence is also communication.

Comment Good heavens! I never knew you write poems! Thanks. The poem all seems to gush with so intensity that it takes the reader along in its stride. The broken rhyme scheme is just quite apt here for emphasizing the incalculable intensity that comes out in real life in broken verses, as in your lines,
My voiceless sufferings may not be understood by you Then why do I desire to be with you? Under the pretext of work you pretend to forget me and here my restless heart desires to be in the world of you and me. - See more at:
