Away From My Reach - Poem by Amitava Sur

Were you really in that much of a hurry
To leave me so alone,
So unkind and rude you could be
Deserting all our dreams and love aside?

Love could be so brutal and harsh
Now I feel the brunt of it.
Nowadays you appear only in the dead of night
In my dreams with your dazzling grace,
Keeping yourself at a safe distance
Far away from my reach.

Do you really hide your urge for love
By compromising with teardrops?
Do you mask your pain and strife
Deep inside your bleeding heart?
Okay my dear, if you’re so reluctant at all
And believe in keeping the secrets within you.
Then can you spare some moments only
To give a pause to my sense of missing you.
At least you listen to me, what I may confess you.

O’ my loving mysterious Lady –
I still beckon you
And remain always by your side
Like a shadow I am stuck with you.

Keeping you within the core my heart
I now live dreaming only of you.
Just hold on for another moment only
To see you afresh and say Hello
After cleaning the opacity
Of my two poor tear-filled eyes!

You may leave me so early in a hurry
But I’m still dying for you
Love you and still hold you firmly within my arms
Though it may be imaginary nowadays! !

    From the title I could guess the content! But on reading it, I got touched more by the sincerity of feeling and the free flow of emotions than by its poignancy!

    O’ my loving mysterious Lady –
    I still beckon you
    And remain always by your side
    Like a shadow I am stuck with you......... Most of us on poem hunter who read your poems affirm the verity of these lines!

    Love such as this never dies even when the beloved is departed. The intense longing and desire to be with loved one envelops so fully as to be felt in dreams and expressed in poetic form. Beautiful poem Amitav! Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

    Amitava, you have reached within and touched the melodies of sadness with those of your own. Feeling your intense love and devotion to Rakhee weeping through each line, yet the beauty of your love remains well defined. Holding your heart filled with love for her and not receiving any back in return is very emotionally draining, yet in your dreams you find her in your imagination and take heart from those precious moments, seeing her again. These lines are so very poignant: You may leave me so early in a hurry, but I'm still dying for you. Love you and still hold you firmly within my arms though it may be imaginary nowadays! Totally tender feelings of your love expressed so wonderfully poetical in this poem, Amitava, I am sure there would be tears of joy in her eyes if she could read your love in these lines. Thank you Amitava for sharing your heart, RoseAnn (Report) Reply
