(a) 9 (Love/Passion) Come, Show Me The Way - Poem by Renu Rakheja a.k.a Tranquil Ocean

Lost in the vortex of my thoughts
Seeking a vision that got lost
Fire consumed or a lost monsoon
Parched earth awaiting a boon
A solitary traveller in an undulating desert
that got lost....

Come show me the way
In your light, everything is clear
And its a sunny day
In your absence, its all dark and queer
All thoughts gone astray

Come show me the way
In your sound, everything is music to the ears
To which I dance and sway
In your absence, cacophony blares
All notes dark and gray

Come show me the way
In your touch, everything is pure
With a bright spark and a ray
In your absence, cannot endure
Even my own skin, t'is like clay

    My Response: Come, Show Me The Way …

    I am the mislaid stranger, being whirled in your thoughts;
    Struggling with a sharp twinge and the face I never lost!
    I had lot of fire in my mind and some floods of anguish;
    Burning under the scorching sun, like the desert sands!

    Yes, I am the lost stranger, struggling and burning this life!

    How can I show you the route towards your enlightenment?
    My light is so hazed, it is neither fair nor bright – you realize!
    My thoughts had swelled up the existence of my forlorn self;
    I have many blood blisters, those spread in years of distress!

    Yes, I am the gloom moonless night, have nothing but darkness!

    I have no lyrics that could sing the praise of a beautiful life.
    How can I sing for you those melodious notes, I lost in vain?
    I confess my downer now, as my music only shower shingles;
    That, my vocals are oppressed and I have lost my channel!

    Yes, I am a hapless performer and I sing some lament and dirge!

    How can I choose to show you the path, a lost stranger I am?
    I have this doomed touch and everything just gets appalling!
    That I have had lost my ember and light of that life of hopes;
    I had persisted to exist in your absence, but now I just fail!

    This poem has a certain yearning, yet it's rustic and not in your face. Well done as always.

    My fav lines -Fire consumed or a lost monsoon
    Parched earth awaiting a boon
    A solitary traveller in an undulating desert
    that got lost....

    ^^ Sound very Earthy!
