Fault Is In Me Not You


River flowing near,
Still I am thirsty,
Riches spread all around,
Even though I am not greedy.

This life is a boon,
Given only to fortunate,
But now no motto lies in this world,
For me to wait.

I want to free,
My body from all feelings,
Die quietly,
Without any weeping.

I remember how I had broken all relations,
To get you,
How I fought with day,
To shine stars for you.

But I now know,
All I did was nothing special,
The love you showed,
Was not a bit real.

Still I take all blame on me,
Maybe there lay a small nook with fault(in me) ,
Which vapourised all,
Your thoughts(about me) .

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
