To a friend-1
- - - - - - - - - - -
Not only am I made
Of flesh and bone
But also made
Bagful of emotions
Joy in spring
Sorrow autumn brings
Love a perennial season
Can outshine sun and moon
A pleasant heaven, yet I fear
Your spite and airs uglier
Than anything else
Pulling us
Apart into hell
That you care not to quell
Oh my dear friend,
See how leaves are falling on the ground
Untimely and not yet browned
Yet you say everything is going good
And in the masque of seasons
Nothing is enduring even
Love had had its share
Leaves its rapture
And thou heart thy summer
But so much have I to say ere
You go your way
You go your way……

    The pain in loss of friendship is epxpressed with sad feelings with a heavy heart, very emotional with an intense feeling. (Report) Reply

    A friend's scorn and spite is worse that what the worst of a harsh season can throw at us. So the attempt for a reconciliation as is made in the concluding two lines of the poem , though painful, can only be the best and right step forward. A beautiful write. (Report) Reply

    Losing a friend is heart rending..... being misunderstood by him is even bitter! If the friendship can be patched up through compromise, before 'you' go your way, .... listen to this! A poignant write! (Report) Reply
