Stroke Of Words

Stroke Of Words short poem

Photo by vidalia_11

In your eyes,
I watched fireflies dancing…

I listen to a song within my heart,
shredded, broken whispers…

at dusk listening to the music of falling leaves
laid bare
my heartaches…

tonight, it rains with thunder,
being alone is quite different
from being lonely,

love forever means an empty room
midnight traps grow around

in your eyes I find lost manuscripts of my poems…

A beautiful poem.

From my knowledge, I have clearly understood & experienced that,
LOVE means shredding of heart,
LOVE means breaking of whispers
bearing sudden heartaches
feeling a sudden loneliness
& loosing yourself into manuscripts that are lost…..

Its feeling good to write to you after a very long time
You inspire me a lot

Thank you
Aditi Roy

Wasting words I want to be electronic; I can only be more robotic. Please try to fix my empathy; I have lost it. I am not hypnotic. I cannot make you feel this, Without giving away my secrets. We need

I learned to hold all my feelings inside until late at night. I covered my mouth with my hands so that no one could hear my tears. I perfected my fake smile. Today, after so many days, painfully enough, but
