The End Or A Beginning?

Things ended between us,
Many years ago,
In a queer, tacit, unspoken manner…

I tried to destroy everything in my life
That reminded me of you…
But your poem
I could not discard…
And the memories hovering in my mind
Remained stubbornly intact…

Recently, many years later,
I began looking for you once again
Alas, I found you!

You hadn’t forgotten me either…
We still haven’t met;
Will we ever, I doubt…
Your replies to my emails, smses and phone calls fill me
With a rush of joy and excitement;
The wave passes and I feel sad again…

Because I know if things end once again between us
They will end for good, for ever
In the same queer, tacit, unspoken manner…

    Human relationships are very deep! If it begins it cannot end mechanically, its memories might continue for generations! Nice emotions and feelings are displayed. (Report) Reply

    each stanza of your poem is touching. but plz. dont allow things to end. please read my poems and comment. this will encourage me to compose more and more. otherwise i have been composing poem since my childhood and throwing into dustbin saying useless for mankind. i had composed one poem with the title the hymn of mercy and shown to one of my office colleague. he commented, after gitanjali he was reading my poem. that came true when i posted on net. that can you see in the comment box of the hymn of mercy - 7 and similarly i got so many comments from india and abroad.but now i am composing without any expectation. i know i am not english born poet, there may be so many inaccuracy but i am confident that there is less accuracy in my emotion and feeling. your emotion and feelings are nice. i do appreciate. with regards.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
