The Lost Soul - Poem by Deepti Agarwal

Scorching heat and sand
burning the feet
sweat on forehead
Oasis nowhere found..

Surrounded by water
stranded by known
toiling towards land
with thoughts to endure...

Engulfed by the vast sky
as it has gone astray
probing for a tree
to rest its weary wings....

enveloped by heads
chained by duties
under the strenuous pressure
lives like a Zombie.....!

    Beautiful poem. But I would react,
    Disillusioned of parts you found the whole.

    enveloped by heads.............deep meaning indeed, as one has to play different roles at various times and one feels like a zombie on some days.........which may be longer than life....

    good imagery........

    the poem expresses a state of mind in utter stress.the imagery of arid sand, heat contribute to the atmosphere of the poem, the external imagery reflect the mind of the poet graphically...thanx (Report)Reply

    The strain and the discomfort can be felt reading this. At times things get tough, but when a person has a good will, things change for the better. Best wishes. (Report)Reply

    Discomfort of the poet is quite evident in the poem. It seems the cause is, non-acceptance! Well dear, my good wishes! ! ! (Report)Reply
