Yours No More - Poem by Alokendra MITRA

Like a meteor in the sky,
You came,
Flying right into my life,
And, out of it in no time.
Turning in moments,
Moments too brief,
My life, forever a celebration,
Into a dark shadow of grief.

But, missed, you were not to be,
My dear,
For, there burnt in my self,
A flickering flame,
That kept me sane,
And, made this wreck exhale and inhale

Years have passed,
And times have changed,
And, I hold her hand and walk down
A long and lonely road,
A long and lonely road, that is
Long and lonely no more.

What was once ours,
Is now OURS,
The rest is history; banished
Into the mist of memories,
To decay into the nothingness of what has not been.

    Love is a voyage of bliss - a spiritual experience that affects one profoundly. It's also whimsical and temperamental, appearing unannounced and may leave without warning, if it's not carefully nurtured by both couples. A well articulated piece of poetry insightfully penned from heart with conviction. Thanks for sharing Alokendra. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply

    Souren, thank you for taking the time to read the poem.

    This poem was was written many years after another poem, My way to the Grave. While that was the product of despair, this was born of hope. I revisited that poem and, so to say, brought it up to date.

    'What was once ours,

    Is now OURS,

    The rest is history; banished

    Into the mist of memories,

    To decay into the nothingness of what has not been.'

    A very poignant poem and a very well worked out finale... Thank you for sharing Alokendra...
