An unmade bed and strands of a hangover – the poem

Updated on May 3, 2015

A flute of my nocturnal dreams makes love

With an empty bedded crux of chilled left over...

Left over of your warmth

On the other side of the once slept bed

Now a citadel of pregnant memories

Arid are the restive course

Almost a past reverie

Tears have sojourned much earlier

And a marked trail left on my facade

Facade of a mind which carries a world within

World of a past... yet I try to catch hold of it

And the remnants of a rusted time

Just slips through my wide extended fingers

Fingers entangled in a waft of forgotten promises....

Yet I extend my hand in want of your touch

And you hand me an intoxicated sack full of a past...

Lacklustre past...all full of conceited tune of a song

A song... so to flow even as a barren poem carries it

So far a dead rhythm grows to climax

With brewing romance of few hollow words....

Words do dance as they get drunk

Side dished with some fleeting nostalgia

And the unmade bed giggles at me...!

A drunken song and few words still dances...

Strands of hangover lingers....

Whilst a nocturnal rhythm bids goodbye..

A promise to return...

After the crimson sky dips in its melodies once more..

Blindfolded with the warmth of an unmade bed...

Still a night waits a dance in rhythm of a drunken song.

      And the band plays a new tune, as time goes on to commiserate what used to be an exalted state of arid bliss...
