A Retrospect - Poem by DEEPAK KUMAR PATTANAYAK

A retrospect
- - - - - - - - -
Fair may look the spring
Fair may look the sun
Fair may look the moon
But far away from once
We dwelt in realm of dreams
No more sunny days
That dawned for us then
Sometimes you smile
Sometimes you sing
Sometimes you quip
Dropping slender, gray words
Like alms given to a beggar
Heart that is now open to new ties
May look sweet and fair
But doubt I
That can hold ever
The passion of love
As reserved before
And more painful it is
When you come not any more
Yet on way up
And on way down
When we come across
You throw smiles
And drop in thin words
While I stretch out my hands
To embrace you
Forever as my friend……..

    Fair may look the spring
    Fair may look the sun
    Fair may look the moon
    But far away from once..................a nostalgic feel

    Here you seem to feel sad over a relationship that has lost its former warmth! Thin words and smiles occasionally dropped have lost their former fervour! A poem that suggests so much about a friendship or relationship that has cooled down and has become almost formal! Enjoyed, Deepak! (Report)Reply
