This excruciatingly beautiful poem which I am publishing today is written by Miss Purvasha Das, she right now lives in USA and is stuck there due to this pandemic. Actually, I never met her, this poem was sent to me by her lovely mother once upon a time who is my employer at work. Both the mother and daughter are lovely.
A fear creeps in as I see you in my mirror,
I can no more frame you in painted walls of my heart.
you have started shadowing my lone wolf trails.
I sleep watching us signing cards,
Only to wake up to a dream behind retired frosted windows,
reminiscing your printed lost smile.
Should I break free in your waters or break down to your last quote?
Should I let the mirage be all of me or let the beating vein consume?
I have become a doubt walking through the riddled roads.
I have been ricocheting between my own pockets of unsaturated vices,
bolted behind imposing virtues.
I am a shot less drunk on you,
For I might order a wreckage for a payment.
I am one obvious truth away from you,
For I have been shrouding my tracks to you
Believing a lie that it would fade one day.
I am a confession short to you,
That I wish to be a prayer fulfilled with you.

Elizabeth O says
That could be a tough yet the most beautiful journey. Love the words that you’ve been written. It’s great!
I’m not into poetry much, but this is lovely and descriptive.
this poem is very deep. Partly, I think of this as moving on and moving forward (love matter), as the writer is trying to remove a certain part from her heart. it could also be moving on from a former self. nevertheless, only the writer knows the real meaning of this poem. what’s important is she’s able to express herself and let it out… 🙂
Kuntala Bhattacharya says
Powerful words used. If I can understand the thoughts correctly, I feel the poet is trying to recover from the past and is in a dilemma which path to select for attaining peace. I maybe wrong.
Marta Skeledžija says

Suit Dupatta says
