When The Whole World Is Busy

When The Whole World Is Busy long poem

When the whole world is busy, the pathway seems so dark;
The eyes search for the only one who can light the spark;
The heart craves for his presence, wishing for his one call;
Wishing if he could hold you when he sees you fall.

Hoping that he would understand the pains that you bear;
When you see the devil of loneliness approaching near;
Hoping that he would enclose you tightly in his hold;
When he sees you crying, when he sees you are cold.

When the waits go on for ages, leaving behind trails of pain;
When he never seems to listen to you and calls you an insane;
When you want him to tell you just how much he misses you;
That you are his heaven, without you he too feels the blue.

When the whole world becomes busy, there is none to listen to you;
It is when you stop saying, what you are going through;
It is when you resort to silence; try to control your tears;
It is when you become numb to all those untold fears.

The heart bleeds as the pain amplifies;
The special one cannot fathom it, even when he is in front of your eyes;
You stop; think for a moment, “Did you love him less?”
“Is this forever or is it only a phase?”

Your questions remain unanswered, like it was before;
You can feel you are breaking, right from the core;
Still there is none to hold you, to tell you he is there;
To tell you how much he loves you, and that he too does care.

Lack of understanding, from a significant other can be so painful. You have given words to emotions that otherwise seem impossible to describe.

poignant write on love.


Sounds like your waiting for a phsical manifestation of a love that can only be offered by a heavenly being. But there is something so beautiful in love and heartache..

When Weaving Stopped short poem

The grain of wood was nuanced for naked aggression. The groping could not find the plasma. Some non-believers were deemed insane by rust-tainted smiles of shimmering stars. Defiant was the crushed grass after caressing the moon in lonely night. The

The innocent and lovely creatures are crying, crying bitterly every moment, For their beauty is their curse; One can not listen to the cry, As it is disgracefully buried by the devils in the inaccessible depth of the secret world,
