Adieu! ! ! - Poem by Kumud Ranjan

Explanation was lucid but shattering to me
Reminders of bygone era haunt as nightmares
I stood aghast and vacillated in present
Striving to recollect pebbles of memories
The amusing past I shared only with you
All ended the way I haven’t ever expected of

I shiver whenever I plunge into our old days
Alone travelling in horrible Dark Age
Hurt, disguised, rejected and slapped by fate
Trying to hide myself even from my shadow
You were the last whom I wished ever to know

Wind penetrates me, make me stumble and fall
No more battles I’ve to win, I’ve lost the war
“You live the best way” my last wish for you
With the wind I’ll be gone without any noise
Silent as I was earlier uttering the word “Adieu! ”

    Hi Kumud
    A beautiful poem. No war is lost......the experience itself takes us to a higher level of understanding.

    Actually speaking, this utterance has the element of disappointment. One has to overcome this element also. Past is now past and there is no meaning in having agitation at the thought of it. We should be able to see our past without tagging our emoitions, as a witness to our own life. You may read my 'Yours affectionately' just for a change. (Report) Reply

    I liked everything abt the poem like basic structure, flows, words spoken, feelings bared, yet I have sense a pensive surrender and acceptance to lost in war. Overall very nice.10 (Report) Reply

    Haunting memories, acceptance of loss
    and profound wishes for the loved one,
    all woven together into a nice poem.
    Good one.
