An Imagination


Often says to me, He
Don’t become like me
Because
You can’t turn back from the track on which I’m
On the spur of the moment;
I say nothing except don’t you worry.
Inside
Deep
Inside
Billions dreams I have to burry.
I not be up to snuff to say even
If I could, I would
In your way of twilight,
Warmly widen my palms
Gentle touch of these
Beneath your feet
Alleviate your impediments
And
Stay away you from all appalling harms.
Wondering around like a willow_ wild
I wish I could build;
A castle of roses,
Every desiccated petal,
Each parched twig of whose,
Planted by love of mine..
Every night when stars would shine,
Moon would beg for,
Spirituality of thine,
Then being an insensitive lover,
I would enclose you in pillow of my arms.
To love and being loved would revamp our desolate charms.
Often he says,
Frequently I think,
If I could, I would squander my life under your limbs.
O my love;
Under your limbs.

    We all are learners and we all have flaws...pls do not mention any such thing because what you have written here is much strong and passionate...many phrases and lines are just so delicate...very good farah...and strong too! ! ! (Report) Reply

    Good imagination, the last few lines were my favourite as they were simple, eloquent and playfully romantic. (Report) Reply

    Dear Farah, never be over-conscious of literary weaknesses in your poem. we always improve with time. Poetry is an expression basically of 'self' so whatever you feel should come out. (Report) Reply

    Don't ever be in any kind of doubt that you are able to carry your reader with you. You are able to let the reader feel what you feel. A nice beginning and very touching end. You have your own style. If poetry is the name of rules and regulation then even Shakespeare was not a poet. If it is written for people by people then......... you are wonderful. (Report) Reply

    A really good imaginary with painted natures on people mind here, it let people have the words and create their own images by these clues...it nice work, just a bridge of illusion, that is what imagination can do :) _Soul (Report) Reply

    not bad Farah ji... mistakes and errors are natural with most of the ESL practitioners so don't worry about it....poem is great, thoughts are indeed very touching and shows how brilliantly have been treated, if feelings get personal than masterpiece emerge,
    a dejected mood has been seen on this love canvass, as one of our fellow poet says that poetry is a channel of transportation and you did it well....
    we can feel. (Report) Reply

    overflow of warm emotions I liked the lines very much -To love and being love would revamp our desolate charms. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
