You Tried To Sing To Me - Poem by Aimanu Begum

You tried to sing to me
but no you could not.
Your voice soaked in tears
still echoes in my ears.
My words hurt you I knew
but you had angered me so.
We have drifted apart
two dry leaves
floating downstream.
I search for your face
in the crowded streets
among the strangers.
Sometimes I catch a glimpse
but you are so far
not even like the distant star
I can see it every night.
In the evening breeze
I sniff for your scent.
Sounds of soft footsteps
on the dry scattered leaves
I twirl around heart throbbing
a sweet happy smile
playing on my dry lips
ready to welcome you
with a moist kiss,
the smile now a smothered sob.
The night creeps in silently
embracing fondly your memory.
The air in the room heavy
with the soundless sighs.
A restlessness sets in
like waves on a summer sea.
I am chasing a shadow.
Sometimes I wonder
if you are waiting too
for me to reach out
grasp your hand fingers locked
and once more resume
our walk side by side.
