Home - Poem by Anita Sehgal

Far away, dark clouds gather,
Despondency fills my heart.
Far away, the red sun drowns in the ocean,
A deep sadness prevails.
Far away, the glowing evening sky slowly turns black,
Melancholy fills the air.
Far away, the shadows lengthen,
Pensiveness overtakes.
Far away, noises still,
The quiet eats at my heart.
Far away, darkness envelops,
dimmed stars quiver like a dying candle,
the ocean beats listlessly
and restlessness overpowers.
Words struggle to give expression to the vacuum,
Far away, the bells toll,
Stirring up forgotten memories.

All I know, it is time to go home.
Time to unlock the secret place in my heart.
Draw out the ancient key…
Touch the source …..
which engulfs in love and a deep peace prevails.

    the repetition of 'far away ' with a beautiful description of nature carrying and transferring heavy human feelings in words brings out intense emotions to the mind.. (Report) Reply

    Good poem. Home is the final destination, a place of peace. This is similar to my poem: Home Is The Best. Keep scribling (Report) Reply
