Quest Poem by Indranil Bhaduri


Rating: 4.9

I still search for my soul,
As I see the stars every night and feel,
Life is devoid of all those happy days,
The intense passion and love had gone astray..
The fiery times and the melodious chimes
Were not there to stay!
Stolen moments that brought bright light
Have taken an independent long stride
And walked far far away.

I still search for my soul,
As I see the vast sphere of the overcast sky,
Covered with the uncanny darkness
Enshrouding the paths which lead to paradise,
Grasping me with its sharp claws!
And thus I suddenly realize,
The silver moonlight of yesteryears
Has turned into volcanic ashes.

I still search for my soul
As sweet memories knock my mind
Piercing my lone heart with its visions
That has been left behind,
And my leftover shadow is blown away
With the stormy winds of today
Leaving me absolutely lifeless
Underneath the scorching sun's rays,
With unanswered queries invading my self
Treating me as destiny's orphan child,
As I scream aloud to rewind
And continue my ongoing quest
For the completely disappeared pieces
Of my shattered conscience.

wauw...thats all i can say. this doesn't speak to the mind or the heart but to the very being that is within the person we normally portray in life. i will clarify this by adding: i always believe one person is two beings. the person that lives in the outside world, and the true person that exists within a world inside ourselves. very beautyfully written ^_^ xXx
