A Poem - Poem by R.K Das

Do I belong? I question myself
One more time anxiously, while
Waiting for permission to script
A preface to passionate musing
Called life..! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

My maiden flight into the
untitled world of desire
Lands softly on the
Flowerbed of compassion.

Nobody knows how long
I am going to stay here
And now at the level crossing
Of the dream road.

Like a few drops of dew
Frozen in wait for
The perennial touch of dawn
That is yet to dissolve the
Substantial shadow of doubts.

Ah! You didn't know? Asks the time
As i stood visibly confused
About the fading life-line
Caught in the cycle of rebirth
Preparing for its return journey.

    A profound self search and a great poem. Each dawn is a bench mark on the time frame until the eternal Dawn. (Report) Reply

    This poem is a wonderful poetic preface as a conscious & careful reader can easily find out that the titles of
    different poems are so finely interwoven building up of their own subtle imagery here that they do not merely make a list but paint a picture...right? :) (Report) Reply
