Valsa George


Posted With No Address - Poem by Valsa George

Bitten by a love bug,
My heart swells with oedema
My love, like gnawing anxiety,
Burdens me
Like a knotty noose,
Stifles me
Like a watch dog,
Follows me


Like an inalienable shadow,
Always with me!
When I turn around,
It is right behind!
It lingers in me
Like a lovely metaphor
Like the intoxicating smell
Of the first summer rain

In my world there are only two of us;
You and I
Where ever I go,
The world wears your face.
A face I have never seen!

I don’t know where you are
In which alien shore you dwell

Yet I write this message,
In secret code
Pouring out my longings,
My unuttered love,
My invisible desires,
Into this scroll of paper
In cursive, indelible ink
I seal it in a bottle
With no address on
And let it drift over the currents

It is meant for the one
Who finds it
And thinks it is for him

If you feel, it is not for you,
Please don’t throw it as garbage;
Kindly put it back,
And let my love vessel float,
Over eddies and currents
Because my soul is encased within!

Just know this much;
It is from a lovely lass!

    Only a love so deep would make a person move to the point
    of addressing a love letter so profound, put it in a bottle and let
    it flow over the currents that moves it over the oceans until it rests
    in the hands of someone that awaits the love that that is so freely
    given. Lucky one he is that receives it. An inspiring write. (Report) Reply

    Hope the sealed bottle will drift on till the eligible hands lift it up from the currents. The lovely lass may soon find her lover reading the sweet nothings whispered unto his keen ears. Meanwhile till the letter reaches the shore of acceptance let us assume the love vessel will be whispering about the blissful pain of this waiting the lass experiences. A missed opportunity has been put on the canvas here by Madam Valsa too! (Report) Reply

    Yes, Valsa I got your vessel, but I put it back so that it reaches the right hand...Really the poem is very beautiful...You could write so beautifully, really I find it so difficulty in writing this way....Each time I find myself landed in a pool of Sorry Vessel especially after posting a poem..As my vessel doesn't reach where it is suppose to. It often lands in wrong hands....And I just tells sorry.I don't know when I will post a Lovely vessel like you...

    Really Loved reading it. Waiting for next.... (Report) Reply
