A FRIEND UNSEEN


He is my other friend..
A strange image but a tall one.
He chit chats less, makes rare visits,
And never eats with or says 'see you'.
He is a guy who wasn`t there by me before

He is my other friend...
A breeze of the kind across the phases of my summer,
A soft hand touching my wounds for a healing.
My other friend is there by me.
He is a guy who is seen around my small abode.

In the depths of the torments
Inflicted by the rest and the well known
My other friend surfaces like a pearl.
He lifts me up from the nadir of despairs.

Oh unknown spirits, who is this guy?

    As no new ventures were around
    Thought of a random choice anon,
    To my humble wonder have stricken
    Over Your SELF, for whom you have
    Been in quest bizarre since ages;
    Thats what the feel of any who
    Attempts to dive deep into
    The cool caverns of your
    Thoughts blessed that still
    Remain unexplored to many.
    I am not easily done with
    What others have contented
    When in pursuit of your soul's
    ebbs and tides though.
    Time permits not any luxury
    Even in shaping one's thoughts
    At its heights deserving
    To answer the complex askance
    Of generations today and tomorrow....
    Let me find for you the unseen,
    To decree him a friend or foe
    Might still be a task herculian. God bless. (Report) Reply
