Lament

Lament long poem

Photo by Dwilliams851


The day when you told me to “Enjoy Life”
As it is too short for us to make it knotty,
The Time when you patiently explained-
the qualms; twirl and turns of life
Never in my dreams I thought
You will not wait for another meeting,
And start your journey to the unknown world.
And the time when I saw you again,
You were made to lie down on the floor
With a white cloth covering from head to toe
And in my mind , I tried calling you
Hoping that you will wake up.
But slowly I realized that thought
Was just a mirage created by my insane mind
Gazing at your face , I felt whether you wished
To change the doleful mood with your unique humor
I felt whether you were too lucky to be bounded
By all your loved ones mourning for you
As in my thoughts I just imagined
How my last journey would be?
I wanted to be near you , as my mind was realizing,
Those were my last hours that I would ever see your face.
With a nomadic mind I sat near you
With thoughts flying from childhood to our last meeting.
And tears rolled down my face,
As those thoughts got blend with my memoirs.
Remembering Your last words I felt like
Whether you tried to teach me with your life
How simple and fleeting a real LIFE can be?

A Lament

One Life, one Fate, one Love… That one-time, ravishing, sudden love, peeling the layers of years lived in apathy, finally reaching your soul; Times, when you were anonymous to yourself, walking hollow and weary in penumbra of your life; And

The Overworked Schoolboy’s Lament

The Overworked Schoolboy’s Lament short poem

I tire of the feelings of dread That envelop my heart every day. The dread, and the hopelessness, That fuels this necessary evil of life. Analysis, thinking, computation, Makes my brain overheat Like an outdated machine under pressure. But still

A Lonely Lament

A Lonely Lament short poem

The flickering flame in the dream of your eyes, is a glimmer of life in a darkening sky. But little heat remains to warm the weary hearts of those so slowly left bereft and torn apart A chill wind blows

The Narcissist’s Lament

The Narcissists Lament short poem

The pain in my brain and eyes, Is nothing compared to the torture of hearing your incessant cries. Nor me having to invent lies to hear your swooning sighs. How depraved I must be to repent this on a keyboard Rather than your holy
