For An Interim - Poem by Valsa George
How I wish to be an eagle
Perched on a promontory
Gazing idly at the world from a distance
To get lost in the vastness around me
In the stillness of this place
Let me toss away all my cares
And watch the curls of smoke
Rising from my snuffed out dreams
Action is now perdition for me,
Human company, lacerating pain!
Let me whisk away,
From the world of din,
A few moments of privacy
And stay awhile in loneliness,
It being my sole companion now
Not for long,
Not till sleep claims me
To redeem me of all my blues!
But just for a while,
(Now and then, all of us
Need some space away from the crowd
I am never an escapist
To stealthily run away from life
But I badly need a little quiet now
To straighten my mangled nerves!
