Gust of despair


A gust of despair
far from your sight deep inside me
where the days drown silently
and nights go by slowly
leaves wither in spring
barren valley of stagnant emotions
n the sorrows like snow flakes
sag down the land of my heart
where no wind of pleasure can ever turn
where the sun can cause no blaze but burn
where cavernous woods with no blossoms but fern
where every laughter casts no glee but a regret in turn
genial stances dancing naked rendering servile you
holding ma hands dragging me back
but here I am wandering in the allure of ma ruined woes
in the land of my heart where the gust of despair forever, blows

    Walking through the land of darkness and regret, a place filled with no pleasure in life. Truly a great poem, Irum.
    Your imagery takes me with you and the gust of despair forever blows against my mind as I read this poem. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply
