The Corpse Of My Feelings...! ! ! - Poem by Pooja Karnani
You left me alone..
Without you an year has gone
Missing you, I do mourn
From dusk to dawn.
Each thing about you in my heart I captured…
It remains even after your departure..
My ambition was ‘you' only
Without you my life is so lonely…
After your departure
Of my heart, I destroyed all the duplicate keys..
I fell in love when in your eyes I did see..
From that day my life drowned in misery..
In my life when you had to leave, why you came..?
My fate for this, I blame.
Because of thee,
My life became a silent tree.
Anyhow the ship sailed with a ragged mast..
And a long time passed.
Then one day..
Came a new sunny ray…
Just like you in looks..his presence…
Your images did shook..
My life seemed to move like a brook..
And a new recipe unknowingly started to cook.
' Yummy..! ! ..' everyone who smelled.. did say…
Even when the cooking was just half a way..
Then I became conscious of what was happening..
That a new foil in my life has started unwrapping…
Then this reminded me of you..
All the cries and unpleasant hue..
On this lonely bridge of life..
Someone desired me to become his wife.
Attempts to create a refuge in my heart's core..
To me it was just like what has happened before
' Hope he won't stab me..' this fear…
I no more can bear..! !
I don't want to experiment with my feelings anymore..
Someone would be loyal..how can I be sure..?
Path of hard survival to me you have shown…
Without you..now an year has gone..
Now when I know the reality of love..
Its delusion curves..
Suspicion flows through my nerves..
You left me just because 'she' could afford royal furs…!
Now I am standing on the bridge…
And with its two sides…I wanna get rid..
On its one side..there is someone..just like you…
How to know…that he will always be true..? ?
On the other side..
I don't even know the waiting surprise…
I decided not to walk on the side of that person…
After losing you…towards love I have developed an aversion..
No matter how heavy is this oar..
How far is the shore…
I don't care that this earth is round..
Let the waves make stupid snobbish sounds…
I really don't know
what result the other side in future shall show…
but I don't want to be betrayed anymore..
oh … gosh..! I can now see the shore…………..! !
