Theme: Love

In Search of Lost Love

As pot of golden evening melts
in the infinity of distant horizon,
a sheet of dusky starless night
unfolds itself…
Like a lunatic,
I loiter down the lonely lanes
to follow your fading foot-prints
and ask the crystal moon
for your whereabouts
but he stealthily sneaks behind
the veil of a dark cloud and
sheds a silent star-tear in sympathy!
Do you remember once
I had embellished your enchanting eyes
with our dainty dreams?
On a pale moonless night
I had reaped moonlight for you
and those love-poems,
I had painstakingly planted
in your courtyard?
Time has come to a standstill as
I smash my heart’s fragile reflection and
slash my mind’s wrist with
blade of my broken dreams
only to find blood-red tears
gushing out of my severed veins
and form puddles of my poetry
while I drift away with the torrent of twinge
in search of my
lost love…
