I Am Left, On My Own! ! !

Rating: 4.3

Was it on a starry night? ! !
Was it in a dusky day? ! !
I heard a clarion in my heart! !
I heard that whisper soft at heart! !

Here you end this journey, and
Here you start for that destiny

I was thrown out pitilessly;
To a rolling typhoon tunnel;
I was made to crawl and sigh!
To fine-tune with the novel high;

Hardly had I left tunnel;
I was struck by that lightning;
To realise it as my triumph
And struggled hard to let it high

I heard that mumble in my heart
In a soft and sweet voice
As a lovely proclaim to me
Keep on going; U will be fine

Now I have a doubt at heart
U may feel it at my face! !
Am I now a new born babe? ? ! ! Or
Am I hearing my death knell? ? ! !

No one can supersede! !
The superpower of that mystery!
Only that could be done!
Is just to face it; that ordeal! !

No one could extend their hands! !
To console or condole me! !
I realise that mystic truth
That, I am left, on my own! ! !

life, even in the time of love, is a journey from loneliness, through loneliness to loneliness...

Dear Sandhya, If we believe in birth, death and re-birth, then we certainly know we are to carry it alone. But someone who has heard a clarion call in her heart, why at all she should be sad in her writing? We might have to crawl and see our children doing the same. That's life. Enjoy it.So much of question marks and note of exclamations made the road of the poem a little bumpy, may I say so? Still it is a good effort. I give you --9--Rajkumar N.B.-May I request you to read my poem 'Symphony' and see whether you like the flow and the rhyme. It is my first visit to your city.

Excellant. But to express your feelings and emotion you used many many words.Keep in mind that poetry is not prose. But still a good piece.

This is certainly a fine enough poem, Sandhya, but you got carried away with the punctuation in it. You don't need all those exclamation marks where one will suffice, and especially not after a line ending with a question mark. Also, using U for you is improper in poetry, but fine on the internet shorthand e-mails that are used today. And the word 'Or' after the end of the 3rd line of your sixth verse and all it's excessive and unneccessary punctuation, should simply be the beginning word of the 4th line of that verse. All that aside, I liked this poem and it was very expressive and well told, except for that excessive punctuation.
