Bookmarked



I fold those pages of my book,
Where the ink is lighter.
I wept on those words,
There...I evolved as a writer.
Those who flipped the pages,
Left finger prints in there.
Those who read between lines,
Showed their care.
I danced on the cacophony,
Thinking it might ease off the pain.
I smiled, when they mistook,
My tears as rain.
But each one told me a truth,
A truth that I bookmark.
Always look into the light,
When the life is dark.

  1. I wept on those words,
    There.. I knew she is a wonderful writer!
    Those words just touched my heart,
    Left strong footprints of her thought!

    I smile, when I read her happy words;
    I shed tears, when reading her touching words!
    But each time I came here, I realized a Truth
    A Truth that I would love to share.

    "I love whatever you write Saru"

    पन्नो पर बिखरे ये सब यादें जज्बात पिछले काफी बरसों के है
    कहीं कहीं टूटे अलफ़ाज़ , कुछ नहीं, धब्बे हमारे अश्कों के हैं.. RS:)

  21. this is a really wonderful piece of poetry. I love the imagery in these lines:
    Those who flipped the pages,
    Left finger prints in there.
    I smiled, when they mistook,
    My tears as rain.

    Melancholy is oozing out of the poem which makes it very charming to me and i really loved how you have given a different sort of twist to the whole process of bookmarking.

  39. Was it a poem bookmarked by life or life bookmarked by a poem? Maybe tears were on the page or the cheek. Where is the poem written, Ms. Singhal? On a white sheet or the space of emptiness? Either wise it gets written on my eyes too.

  58. You could very well relate this to our Life also

    "Those who flipped the pages,
    Left finger prints in there.
    Those who read between lines,
    Showed their care."

    In Life people might seem to be interested in our well being and just tell us what to do. But people who are genuinely concerned will show us the way and stay with us.

    These words are so lovely Saru. I luved this poem a lot :-)

  70. "Why I started writing and what it means" was exactly the theme of my second last poem! I think at some point we all realize how this whole blogging thing is becoming important!
    Just an excerpt...
    " I may be hurt but not for once I resent
    Just that I am a mere human
    With a need to occasionally vent
    And so I turned to writing and it feels cathartic and divine
    Knowing what's lost was actually never mine"
    Nice post Saru...could totally relate to it!

  74. completely knocked over! :)
    this was one hell of a prose.
    *hats off*

    IMHO, a writer writes best when writing about her art, her writing and herself as a writer, the culmination of her artistic aspiration.
