Auction For My Heart... - Poem by Nidhi Dev

Our eyes met often, but our hearts never did,
I have auctioned my heart and hope you'll buy it in this life's bid...
You searched different paths, but knew not the one to mine,
How could you imagine you would have to pay a late-buy fine?

'Good night' means 'I love you' now, that I can no longer tell you so,
'Hello' says 'I missed you so much, dear', though never again will I say so...
I want to catch a glimpse of you at least,
on the look of your laugh, your enchanting smile, I want to feast...

This is all I can do, all I can say, for the heavy price that my love has cost,
Though it kills me to say, but still I have not hesitated,
that may it be summer, winter and frost,
I sing your song alone that my love for you has created..

    Eyes oft meet but hearts dont...I see millions of eyes moving searching for something in void...but not a single heart....We all want love but we dont know how to give it.....Good poem...they make me write all this stuff...you need to travel deeper...best of luck from a poet to a poet (Report)Reply

    hi, nidhi! ! ! ...i just gone through some of your poems...and going by that i can say that you are a prolific writer...and your soulful rendition of things happening in human psyche should reach many more who value it, cherish it....I've just started an informal group on facebook with the name 'Artisticia' which is dedicated to such fine skills of expression...I know for a poet like you, it's not a desired plateform...but from a reader's view point, I cordially invite to adorn the wall of this small forum with your artistic gems....link is given below...
