Alone – A poem

The snap -

The poem -

Mad moments few,
Will be drenched in dew
Lost in the darkness; my wry laments;
Just a handful
A handful of bitter tears;
Deeply blistering tears –
Scarlet scars painted; on
Crimson cheeks tainted;
Of pain;
Of love slain;
Like Cain;
Of Abel slain;

An elegy;
Of a love lost.
An orgy of a melancholy;
At a hearts cost.
Anguish; Ache;
Vodka; Sake;

I cry alone every night,
Dipping and drenching my shattered soul; in
A handful of bitter tears;
Deeply blistering tears –
I cry alone every night,

To remember the moments I spent laughing with her.
The bliss; the heaven;
The kiss; the Beethoven;
My love, my bow;
My Soul, my Spirit;
Lass of an angel;
In the bass of love;

Oh…. I lost her, I lost her
I lost her, I lost her……

Please do not disturb me; When

I cry….. Alone every night.

Author’s note –

The above poem also is based on a Tamil poem that I wrote while travelling to Coimbatore a few days back (I haven’t posted the Tamil poem but if you guys want to read the original Tamil poem, I will post it later). My sis says that I can be pretty depressing with my words sometimes. The above poem according to her is one of them. I don’t really agree with her. I think that pain in love is the ultimate salvation in life.

PS –

I actually am posting this poem from a browsing center nearby my home. The broadband connection in my home has been having a lot of problems lately and I have not been able to tweet or to blog regularly because of that. I have registered a complaint and I think that those BSNL guys will take a couple of days to look into the problem. I will be offline till then. Really funny things have been happening lately and I do have a lot of smiles to spill to you guys and will do so once I come back online. :):)

Until then.

"Pain in love is the ultimate salvation." !!

This piece wowed me off and this particular thought pushed e off the edge..I'd never, before looked at love with such a perception.

Wonderlicious !!

sm said...

nice poem like it
pain in love
if there is no pain can we call it love ?

Vinnie said...

Love n pain is the same fact i was shocked when i started reading this...some time back i was just juggling with the concept of pain being love turned around n vice versa n how ridiculous it is on our parts to think of love as 'happily ever after'.....n then i read this piece of creation...which summarised whatever i had concluded!!

what a lovely coincidence!!

i loved this a lot n cannot pinpoint any stanza as the best because all the lines were beautiful...just wondering who u lost? :)

All the best with BSNL! ciao:)

Dude r u in serious love pain always ?? Wass cooking ?? Go fetch her !!!

Velu said...

I think this pain was for the loss of the broadband! :)

But I do agree that the pain from love is a privilege of the few. But its like that Bacchan ad where he says, "Dard hame kuch sikhata hai".

I think its best to love and learn from others get hurt in love. :)

Beautiful expressions there. Initially I thought this was a tribute to the innocent children and lives lost in the shooting and slashing. It was only when I neared the end, I realized its something else. But its still so poignant. And I'm still in a depressed mood from the weekend, so I guess it touches a raw nerve somewhere :(

muthu said...

@ Deeepa---

hmhm.... I think a piece of ourselves drip into the words we are writing. And if we can write what exactly we are feeling- then that alone, I think will make one insane writer.

Thank you for your comments. I do hope I did not put down you too much.

Will sure make it up soon with a nice humor post. :)

Deepa said...

Hey its not you, its just the mood that made the post resonate with the happenings! You keep doing the good work you always do!

Noopur Kothari said...
