Madness...


[Picture by: Anukriti Sharma]
Visions of yesterday burn the horizon of today...
Will you sleep by my side and sing to me ?
Will I ever smile with tears in my eyes?
What is it that inspired you... that made you cherish those blotted dreams?
The blood splashed waves I see in the distance cry out...
solitude flies in search of a new confinement...
The orange phosphorescence dissolves into the sea... rejuvenated into a dreamy purple...
like purple pieces of a jig-saw puzzle... it lasts for a flickering moment...
and then... it dissolves...the purple sky blurs into a grotesque gray...

It was beautiful when it flowered into life...it was close to my heart... it was mine...

Smiles have slowly brushed it away... only tears will nourish it now... my laughter will breathe through it suffocated sobs...

The mist has blinded my sight... the silence has deadened my ability to hear... I cannot recall reality as it was... I have lost consciousness...
Your voice has faded away... in the depths of time
Time has changed...
Now, only the clouds weep incessantly...

I shall not...
I do not...
I cannot...
Why??

It has ended...

Love will now peep through dead alleys.

Will you ever look back and smile?

Perhaps you too...will laugh at me...

You too will call this madness...

a mesmerizing poem, and beautiful portrayal of our inner thoughts amidst changing times, though it was kind of sad.

Nice poem. I like the fluctuations in it - they work like waves. Keep it up.
