Touch Me - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

Why don’t you leave me alone and in isolation?
Why is it that you still come and guide me with relation?
Why is it that I still spend sleepless nights?
Internal thoughts clash with mind and fight

You come before eyes when I close for little comfort
I try to forget sweet memories or resort to
No successes as you drive powerfully and invade
You stand in between doors and don’t fade

I fail to close the eyes and turn the back
Again you resurface and eventually crack
Oh god! what is happening for the good?
I fear that I may eventually forget to take food

You ask me about the reassurance with promises
I had done it number of times with so many misses
You whole heatedly forgave me with no regrets
Such was graceful act on your part to allow me or let

I fight for letting bright sun to appear
I can’t imagine its brightness so near
I feel like rejecting all happiness and stay far
The sky, moon and even don’t appeal the stars

Can’t you come again in same form?
I am totally shaken and mentally broken
I fear that I shall never get sound sleep
I shall remain awake and ceaselessly weep

Stars twinkle but don’t appeal
Moon light spread but strong urge is repealed
I shall never hear that morning melody
As I lay unconscious with no movement in body

Will you touch me in form of wind?
Will you spread the light and be kind?
Push me with your gentle touch to come in same for again
Rush to open fields to experience the rain

I hope you will be kind enough
The earth had been unkind and rough
I have now reason to smile or laugh
As you have come back as my better half

    I like the element of straightforwardness in your poetry. It is not easy to write such lines, especially in poetry form...it just comes naturally for you.
