Silent Request

Silent  Request short poem

Photo by Merelymel13

When I sleep,
You come to me
You sit by my side
And touch my face with your soft fingers.
your touch makes me warm and secure.
I forget all my worries.
You kiss on my cheeks
With your trembling lips
Your kiss fill my heart with peace.
You stop my tears with your silent touch.
Your presence make me to feel-
The richest person in the world.
I wish you would never leave me alone.
I want to see you with my naked eye,
I want to feel your presence with my touch.
But, can I ask you
Did your master give you permission
To visit this thrown away child-
If I see your master,
I could clear my doubts.
He knows, am alone in this world,
He knows, a mother can never be –
Duplicated or replaced.
Then why did he separate you from me.
I have a silent request to you-
Get permission from your master,
To stay some more time-
With this ‘left away’ child.
I wish to see you with my open eyes,
But I am scared- I am scared,
You may leave me-
Leave me all alone, in this world.
So let your visit be a reality,
At least in my heart.

Tears cannot wipe away our grief……but with the flow of the tears makes the heart little bit light .

What’s The Difference?

Whats The Difference? long poem

The legato of language and lingo, The dance of diction and dialect — Have you ever considered the difference A little letter or two can effect? Texture of tense, Savor of sense, The nuance in a sentence — What’s really

The very essence of love is uncertain, A relentless thumping of the heart. I must speak to you by such means as they are within my reach. He pierces my soul driving me into madness. I am half agony, half

From My Journals anxiety prose poem

The moon awaits eagerly in the same pedestal it ignited my passion. What lips, my lips have kissed, are long forgotten. The memories easily quickened as a few puddles along the way I voluntarily stepped in. What arms have lain
