Drops Of Rain - Poem by Valsa George

Into the horrid heat of my summer
You fall as drops of rain
The broken bangles I treasure
Fall down and crack into still smaller bits

In this Ravenous night
As I sit outside, all alone
Looking into the night sky
I see blinking stars here and there
And my memories swim
Around a starry eyed girl

My mind speeds like a steed to those days
That had the beauty and brilliance
Of the arching rainbows of the blue
And the glowing hues of peacock feathers
You were then the rhyme and rhythm of my life
The song and melody of my spirit
The symphony in my violin
The alluring dream of my nights

Once you got into my garden unbidden
Like a flitting butterfly
A leaping grasshopper
A honey sucking bee
A winging robin
When the breeze was hissing
When the flowers were nodding
And perched on my shoulder

I plucked for you a red, red rose
And you savoured its fragrance
That very day you became my friend
You spread a pervading aroma
That wafted into me with every gushing wind
You became the throb of my life
My singular passion
A rising flame
My heart’s silent language
The sole focus of my life

But without even a parting word
You left me to my fate
Now I am pushed into a desolate isle
Where loneliness comes to strangle me
And I feel so defenseless!

Here I struggle to elbow out
The train of wistful memories
And at my feet lies the withered rose
The sad reminder of a passion we once shared

Now I know love hurts, it hurts terribly
Leaving one so utterly vanquished

Won’t you come once again?
As my friend, nay as my soul mate
To be together for ever
And sit looking at each other from eye to eye!
In anticipation, I wait here
For the falling echo
Of your jingling footsteps!

Yes, I am in eternal wait!

    this is marvelous! The words spiral and draw you in until you, like the speaker, become rapt in memories and lost love.
    Though every part of this is lovely, these lines are my favorite:

    In this Ravenous night
    As I sit outside, all alone
    Looking into the night sky
    I see blinking stars here and there
    And my memories swim
    Around a starry eyed girl

    I love the double entendre here with blinking stars and starry eyed girl such clever use of language! Also I love the idea of memory literally swimming around the girl. You've done it again, written a beautiful masterpiece!

    .....for some reason, I feel once a friend, always a friend...and we all know even friends can disappoint you... and have disagreements...but it doesn't mean we stop loving them..even if they go away, sure they will remember the love...I feel true friends will never leave you... they will always be in your life.....my favourite stanza
    I plucked for you a red, red rose
    And you savoured its fragrance
    That very day you became my friend
    You spread a pervading aroma
    That wafted into me with every gushing wind
    You became the throb of my life
    My singular passion
    A rising flame
    My heart’s silent language
    The sole focus of my life (Report) Reply
