WHAT ARE YOU?
I go on thinking usually,
afterall what are you?
perhaps you are a song of the poet,
or you are lotus in the lake,
i keepin on thinking gazing the stars,
as much i think about you,
i drown in the sea of memories,
are you the fragrant summer eve ?
or the first sunshine after showers,
the much i thought about you,
the more i got you
send and twee others poems.
having a burning coal,
in his hands,
and burning himself,
it is a volcano,
destroys all the limbs,
it is an earthquake,
that shakes itself,
it is a bomb-blast,
that blasts its own body,
it is a bullet that kills himself,
drive away anger.
The evening descended from the sky
every corner filled with unwanted pain
the evening entered in the room
standing alone desolate
the mind became dark hole
all colours of hope disappeared
unwanted pain has entered
to grow new sun of hope.
Don`t call me in the dream,
the eyes become clouds,
and these starts pouring pearls,
don`t make me remember those days,…
when heaven descends in the lap,
the moon laughed in our life,
the moonlit fragrant nights,
aches us to writhe,
to move forward
is ok my friend.
