The Lost Love - Poem by Kesav Venkat Easwaran

My dreams, once twinkled
Shined and glittered
In the vast of my mind
Now shattered,
Broken into bits,
Lie scattered
Down your feet,
Can you say you have
Forgotten those days?
The face beheld in them
Is not yours?
That face holds
No marks of tears?

In breeze,
The songs, you sang for me
To soothe my ailing sense,
Those threads of eternal love
Woven into my heart,
Now, upon your feet,
Lie deserted in dust,
In rotten rust,
Can you say, you never
Touched their strings?
And they bear no pains?

    keshavji........
    a poet's life is something like that of a pendulum...
    it moves from one end to another in simple harmonic motion.......
    but the ends are very dangerous.....supreme bliss and grave depression....
    a man with zero potential is not a poet..........
    we walk through the knife edge separating life and madness.......
    a real squander............

    In the vast of my mind
    Now shattered,
    Broken into bits,
    Lie scattered

    the poem starts strong and continues this way throughout, i love how you went from showing how in love you were to how much it hurt in the end, just in one verse, you were right i really liked this poem, great job....10
