Those Unspoken Words - Poem by RAJ NANDY


While travelling down the road of life,
When we both met just for a while,
My admiring looks and your eloquent eyes,
Those unspoken words all left behind!
So many things kept crossing my mind,
And all those things I longed to say,
Should we meet once more some day!

Then when I saw you the other night,
Under the shopping mall's candid light,
I forgot all that I had longed to say,
And soon you had vanished out of sight!
And later after quite a while,
I found you standing by the sea shore,
My spell-bound looks and those eloquent eyes!
But when I tried to give vent to my feelings
and thoughts,
Which kept accumulating for long within;
Once more I forgot my words and lines,
And they all lay buried deep inside!

Then finally one day in the banquet hall,
I saw you standing wrapped in a pink shawl,
We both met on the rear balcony,
When you said that you loved me!
I immediately recollected all my words
and lines,
Which lay dormant in my heart and mind;
But in those moments of ecstasy!
When I realised you belonged to me!
I became speechless for the moment -
on that day,
For you had expressed everything I had
longed to say!

    The unspoken was actually conveyed during the meetings in silence. The invisible interactive process do not need words…you have wonderfully dissected the lover’s mind and revealed his insight..
    a nice and interesting composition…
