The…timeless Surf...0605-2010 - Poem by saadat tahir

I wish my flowing tears; stood witness,
to a crashing loneliness, in this cess.
O'had we not made a forsaken start,
and none had bet for a broken heart.
Hopes, heart, dashed to bits on distant isles,
to impassable barriers of a million miles.
The armada's hopeless tryst with far-off rifts,
stands alone, cluthing, fistful sands, as it drifts.
Lost to anguish, hurting wistful desires,
ambers doused afore the raging fires.
I wish those memories; would just wash,
spare me the pain and enduring splosh.
Heaven intercede, to completely erase,
the mindless waves, sadness and craze.

    It's highly nostalgic verse, serene and somber.We wish memories to wash away but they never. They flicker for ever but never pass away. a beautiful write with apt symbolism. (Report) Reply
