The Last Letter


On moonlit night, I sigh!
Of incessant love, you may say.
Beholding the hopes high,
Our paths would cross one day.
Sinking alone in mellow light, 
I read his last letter.
Wonder, what could I write?
What words would be better?
Indigo days, sober nights, 
Of fallen petals and love.
Or shall I not write, 
Not make our parting tough.

Sitting alone, searching for my broken star.
Wish, I wish, time would heal these scars.

  3. Aw! That's sad!

    Or shall I not write,
    Not make our parting tough. - This made it even sad!

    This is like each phrase speaks a thousand words, Saru! You brought out the melancholy just perfectly.

  4. What a beautiful sonnet. I wish this post was submitted for the Poetry genre, a winner all the way. :)

    Thanks to IBL, I was able to learn what a sonnet is, am now able to appreciate and understand such kinds of poems even more. Loved it Saru. :))

    1. Akshay, I wrote this sonnet for IBL but my captain rejected it. He said it is not a sonnet in its true form.

      *Sobs*

      Thanks for liking it and I believe poetry is something which should touch hearts irrespective of form or rhyme.

  12. Lovely words Saru! I look forward to a poem with lot of hopes and joy. Sorry if this sounds like a video on demand in this hedonistic era. :)

    Pain is forgotten when your mind is occupied. When one is immersed in work or hobby or anything which ensures that the person is focused, the pains of the past is completely forgotten.

    Cheers,

  21. beautiful poem
    but I work the other way .. why would we want the scars t be filled, if they do we are going to be treated the same agian.. but if we remember the pain then maybe second time we will be more attentive and not let it happen to us ..

  25. I don't think this was submitted on behalf of the Bangalore team! You should have submitted it, Saru! It would given your team a sweeping victory!

    Such beautiful lines! Loved this one, especially:

    "Beholding the hopes high,
    Our paths would cross one day"

    Though am not able to comment on every single poem of yours, I read them whenever I can. Your verses become beautiful day by day! Keep blogging, Saru :)

  39. I think I would write. I need a closure. To live with the hope of what would happen, would be painful for me.

    I totally loved the poem, but these lines just blew me away:

    Beholding the hopes high,Our paths would cross one day

    So many people live with this hope. So many hearts have broken when this hope crashes. Wonderful as awlays Saru!

  52. Saru.. I am in awe of the emotional power your words wield on the reader. For a moment, you transcend the reader into the realm of the underlying emotion. I was transfixed in the silence and the angst of your poem and gripped by the intensity, yet sublime subtlety and the tranquil beauty of your words. It took me a while to recover and that too reluctantly! Fascinating piece yet again! :)

  61. Made me remind the last line of the Hariharan song "Krishna "- "time is the healer ... time moves on ... I m waiting .. "

    Couldn't stop myself from mentioning it in the comment. .. truly beautiful ...

    Although, time is the greatest healer, some scars never completely heal ... only the pain reduces with time .. or may be we learn to live with it .. never stop writing please .. :-)

  67. sometimes it's just so difficult to give words to what you're feeling.
    there are moments when you have to part, even without knowing why but you know you must. what would you say then? you can't even say what you have to do. no words are easier than others to write....

    kudos,

  68. touching poem again, Saru. :)
    our instinct is to bury the pain deep down in our hearts. but when it crops up- life ceases to treat you nicely.

    Or shall I not write,
    Not make our parting tough?
    You left me without a breath or goodbye,
    you never even gave it a try,
    Should've known I was so perfectly blind,
    a love I'll never again find..

    Just a little add-on.. Hope it doesn't tarnish your post. :)
