Frozen In Shells - Poem by Praveen Kumar in Celestial Glow

Pages turned beyond my count,
Chapter after chapter story flowed,
But the climax is far from horizon;
Beginning was cool; middle, thrilling,
But the story stopped movement there;
Words do flow, and thoughts outpour,
But momentum is lost beyond that;
It's absolute Antarctic now,
Ice sheets stretch beyond eye sight,
Air is so cold, it freezes blood,
It's grey stretch miles after miles,
A feel like in spaceship, totally lost.

Passions and thoughts, springboard,
Yet, pour out in flood all over there;
Walls of waves in Tsunami gush
But recedes back on seashore floor
Like doused fire back to hearth
Or tired bird at dusk fly to its nest;
Huge sparks are there, but fail to ignite
And heat the flow to its just end;
But pages like time wait for none,
And pages turned beyond my count,
And chapter after chapter story flowed,
But the climax is far from the horizon.

Dramatis personae in high prisons
Deeply frozen in shells in their cells
Know not how to make their moves;
Lightening and thunders, huge gales
Rise and die down with passing days
With no imprints made on pages;
Yet fire is raw, live beneath the ash,
A story must find its climax somehow,
And a love so pure cannot go waste;
Though pages turned beyond my count,
And climax is now far from horizon,
End game now cannot wait too long.
