Sunken (poem)

It’s been fifty days
since I last saw my reflection in your eyes…
since I last got lost in the lines on your face…
since I last felt magic when your shadow touched mine…
since that moment when you decided to give up on our love…
because it drained us…
consumed us…
since the day when you chose peace of mind
over love infinite…
in the process you robbed me
of my peace and sleep…
stamped on my mind are your last words…
my love you said made you numb…
you couldn’t handle the weight you said…
so you chose distance instead…
I have often wondered if that
on your part was an act too selfish…
to just rip my world and leave…

but today when I saw you in the alley…
it hit me…
so this is how it feels…
to go numb
to just sink in the ground…
after all these days
today I truly can say…
that it does hit you in the face
each time our hands barely grazed…
if this is what one would want to avoid
I understand perfect it wrenches the heart this void…
but I’ll still take numb
dark
pain
any day
if that shall be the result
of looking into your eyes again…
…only today have I learnt what you meant…
my heart feels like a ship sunken

Lost and Found,Web Or Bridge (short story)

She was now forever trapped
in that vacuum sealed moment
in which they first met…
she had to be in denial of her feelings for him
if she didn’t want to depart from her peace of mind…
loving him was a struggle with herself
and a surrender too …
his pull was too strong to resist
and her will too weak…
but she cannot give in for
how does she hold him
when he feels the need for warmth
the whole world being the distance between them…
but then she was ready to cross that distance too
if her words would suffice…
for she had only words to give…
to win his heart…
or would these very words jeopardize
her hopes of a possibility of an intimacy
she wanted to develop with him…
would these words become a web
in which her appeal suffocates and dies
or would they become the bridge…
….she wondered…

Under The Full Moon (poem)

under

A hundred rainbows
across the skies sprung…
a thousand stars
were born from dust…
a million flowers
in arid lands bloomed…
thawed glaciers
and glistened dried
river beds when they with
milky waters ran full…
the planets
fell out of their orbits
and my whole
world swooned…
when you my sweet
in your spellbinding voice
whispered my name
under the full moon

15words poetry is all thanks to a community in google plus which was started by it’s owner as a challenge to combat writers block and free up the mind of words.It became a challenge that many writers took up,and then grew into a community.The link to the community is https://plus.google.com/communities/105694452128547059689
I’m a member here and it serves as a source of inspiration to me,it has helped me a lot in growing as a poet,yes,I always read micropoetry and marvelled at the talent of those who wrote,because it really is difficult to write a poem,make a point in short verse and 15words is another challenge all together,I’m hooked,I’ll be posting more of this,I hope you find the time to read.
