Poem: For You

Source

For you,

I wobble through the river of disdain and misfortune,

I bleed in profusion as I pluck Roses,

I bear a twinge of rheumatism,

I have suffered such agony, for you.


So that the thorns of Roses don’t prick your gentle fingers,

I even drown in the depths, wherein Oceans climb

Cliffs so high that I sink and bustle

To inhale and exhale, yet quietly I sink to extract

Lustrous Pearls in adoration of my only Love, for you.


I burn in the Platonic Saga of Love,

Like the wax of a Candle dwindles down,

Like the hymn of Tides brush on shore,

Like the fine chopped Clouds in the velvety Sky,

For you, I delve deep into my Soul.


Ah! Why didst thou sprinkle salt on my raw wounds?

Why didst thou place thorns on my heels?

Why didst thou stab this tender Heart?

O Death! You’re poetic and I’ve promised your Poetry

To wear a Garland,

For you…!

This was deeply felt. What a very expressive poet you are. Keep it up. I will be reading more of you, thanks to Manitita and his sonnet to you.

word55, I am glad you found it brisk. Now that you have found me, gives me time to also see your works and afford an opportunity to exchange views.

Thanks for your kind words and encouragement.

surabhi, It is nice.

dil jala jala kar mera,

tumne apna jeevan jiya,

ab maut bhi,

aasan ho gayi.

Nice.

Hari, kya khoob likha hai yaar.

Beshumaar jal rahe diye bhi bujh gaye

Afsos! dil-jale aksar jalte rahe...jalte rahe...
