Concealed Paradise

Concealed Paradise

In my anchorless sleep,
i’m consciously dwelling deep.

Playing all night, is a dreadful,
stale, tale.

The oceans tide is ravaging my shore,
exposing my hidden abode.

The moon that was on crescent, throughout, has turned full.
I keep praying him to remain dull.

His vision for me has blurred,
Putting me, in deep trouble.

Awaiting for dewdrops to fall ‘n’ turn me, to a pearl.
I woke up, once more, stuck within my shell.

      Thank you Li. I wanted to make a dreamy scenario to signify sleeplessness.I think i have achieved it. Reasons for the same can be any

      based on ones own life experiences.

      Audrey,

      I am honoured by your kindest appreciation. Yes. You are right in saying that. Poetry should free us yet interpret our deepest commonalities.

      Thanks. Have a great day.

      Hello, Hari. In my earlier comment, I didn’t specifically mention the lovely components in this imaginative poetry. Chosen words throughout it really speak volumes and paint pictures.

      The specifics of the poem weave together to form a deep, underlying meaning, which was what grabbed me when I first read it. Whether it describes feelings you’ve observed in others or felt in yourself of being stuck in one’s shell, it brings that troubling feeling to forefront dramatically.

      I love your illustration, too!
