This 'Tense' Time - Poem by indira babbellapati

A world by itself
Remote, distant
Wishes to detach
Or cling for security

Not lived
Or aware of
A blink
Ends up a regret

Unknown, yet
Invested in hope
Lends wings
Passes unrecognized

One door opening
Into another...

    from Melvina Germaine:

    I'm back as this morning I'm definitely consuming poetry and feeling its power surge through me intensely, so I wanted to look at this again in a more in-depth way. I'm loving every word and feeling every stanza as I re-read and take it in. Past...Yes, the thought of yesteryear though so long ago, still paints a very bold and loving picture in my mind, I know I do cling to certain situations and somehow feel secure in doing so, definitely I relate to this. Present...How many times has some little thing ended up a present, much wonder, many issues to deal with, not sure of oneself prevails, nonacceptance, dealing with tolerance, non appreciation, value from ones peers, on view, judged, fear, much involved in the present...Future...A smile comes forth, or maybe fear as well as it is the unknown, surprises, wonder, hope is certainly prevalent, dreams and goals to meet and hopefully in future, we'll shake hands with all of our dreams and goals. For me, thinking of the future always places a smile on my face. I'm sure I'll be back to read this again and who knows, more thoughts may come forth. Thank you for this insightful poem and for pulling such thought out of me Indira.....
