Pain Over The Ages. Poem by Tajudeen Shah

Pain Over The Ages.

Rating: 5.0


I breathed in pain for ages,
She blazed in adversities,
Consoled each other dreaming
Of becoming soul mates in future.
Adolescence was eaten by worms,
Obligations swallowed Youthfulness,
Silver hair tips announced
Advent of middle age shadows.
She matured into a yellow flood,
I transformed an icy mountain.
Life burned on red flames of pain
Deserting even thought-fragments.
Dreams of honey drops ascended
Over relations of utter bitterness,
Pain-flames finally turned us
Ecstatic ashes for unborn ages.

Adolescence was eaten by worms, Obligations swallowed Youthfulness, Silver hair tips announced Advent of middle age shadows Time wheels round like an eagle and seasons give way to seasons. We age with responsibilities and encumbrances drowning us and all our dreams are doused! A splendid write! A 10 for this great write!
