Tears Poem by Shihabudheen K J


Rating: 4.1

Open your window,
you can see my childhood
waving naughty hands at you.

Open your palm,
you can see your highschool bangles
stained with my teenage blood.

open your book,
you will see eternal rose petals that
cried between our first kiss.

Open your room,
you will find valentine days
on all days of calendar.

Open your pain, you will know;
healing is not medicine but me.

Open your heart,
you will still feel the rhythm of my veins.

Open your eyes,
you will now realise the tears;
falling down your cheek are not yours,
but mine.

I beg you,
invite all but not me to your wedding.
Upon the mountain mist,
i will be praying for your wellbeing.

A sense of loss, the pang of separation above all the cloud of sadness are dominating this poem.Touched me much!

sometimes tools of poetic trade offer no service after reading an innocent feeling expressed so beautifully....! ! !
