Bridge, Trees and A Hug So Tight


Some wait for the spring,
Others walk barefoot on a hot summer day.
Unwary of the season, I sit under the same tree,
Since you went far far away.

The bridge is covered with snow now,
Like memories, tears too have iced up.
Heart is numb with endless pain,
Merely longing for your gentle touch.

Wish the twilight moon takes my message,
Wherever you might be.
Someone who loves you so dearly,
Is sitting under the same tree.

Come, sweep me off my feet,
Pour passionate kisses till I say so.
I wear your favorite dress on most days,
The one with pink flowers and hint of indigo.

127 days so far, I count,
Morning, noon and night.
Since you wrapped your arms around me,
Bidding goodbye with a hug so tight.

  1. Ah! Beautiful. Love, in the backdrop of changing seasons. Change of seasons signify so much - time, state of mind,- or the lack of changes. It's a naturally beautiful analogy.

    You are entering the realm of the darkside- love, relationships, loss etc! I
    love it :)

    P.S. This picture is Hoboken River Front , I believe

    2. Oh Boy! Third comment on the same post! How come in this time and age, you can't edit a comment? Baffles me...

      Anyways, on a last thought...this poem reminded me of my own lines from a poem..thought I would share :)

      आज कह दे कुछ ऐसा कि ख़ुदा भी मुस्कुरा दे
      जिसे सुनने के इंतज़ार में ना जाने कितने मौसम बदले
      पतझड़ के बाद अब हमारे दिलों में भी तो बहारें खिलें
      जीवन का यह अंतिम संवाद सा लगता है
      क्योंकि अबके हम बिछड़े तो शायद कभी ख्वाबों में मिलें....

    3. 127 days represent guilt. I am reading a friend's novel and from past two weeks I am on page no. 127. :P I guess, your guilt reflects in your writing.

      Beautiful verse, Prateek. Keep on sharing and many many congratulations on the sixth anniversary. And I am not sure of the picture, sorry.

  2. The same questions about the number as Prateek above. Lovely haunting lines about changing seasons and changing phases of love.
