Lost Abode


I liked everything to be perfect,
Until one day I found.
Some poems don’t rhyme,
Some words don’t weigh,      
And some smiles always fade.
Unlike some happy faces,
These lips are now closed.
Drowned in the flood of tears,
They lost their abode.
Can I curse him?
For leaving me in the lurch.
Without even saying a word,
Abandoned me in this never ending search.
A plateau of concrete,
Has his name with 'dates.'
Symphonies created by his memory,
Play low-key on my fate.
Each morning I bathe myself,
Then walk bare-feet, muddling my toes.
Inching towards my place of solace,
I decorate his name with a rose.

*Based on a story of a war widow and is published in the book 'Rousing Cadence'

  7. It is beautiful Saru, the poem talks of words not rhyming in a beautiful rhyme, and oh, the angst, when they don't as life unfolds!

    Beautiful poem :)

  22. This book has equal dosage of love, romance, adventure, depression and nice Haikus. You've showcased one or two bits of this in those wonderful words.

    Really touching words
