To tell you the truth my humble folks
No one ever sang melodies nor I evoke
sighs of love, nor were woven any aching
hymns, no blind poet was ever penning,
ballads of mine love, while young lovers
were busy making love under thick covers
I was simply trying to stand my ground
Only trying to nurse some old wound
I did have few dry kisses to my share
Enough to call them some sort of affair
To keep the sluggish heart-beating,
And the crimson thin blood gushing
For I knew that true love is a luxury
A privilege reserved for not the many
I had vowed my entire life to a service
And all I ever did was the same service
Knowing that not every floret is a rose
Some of us are condemned only to compose
Verses of love in the long endless nights
While thinking of kisses in our imaginary flights

Piognant yet beautiful………thank God for those imaginary flights …….they add some color to life🤗
Thanks Sakshi for reading I know unhi imaginations ka Sahara Reh Gaya hai he he. Some of the poem like this I write I can’t stop laughing myself!!😉😉
Haa haaa don’t laugh Pat your back for your creativity 😊
I laugh coz when we write verses we exaggerate emotions and pain but reality always is not this bad. Sitting on beautiful couch and drinking flavored tea just when husband took out for a dinner, only flowers were missing in dinner. 🤭🤭and I had to write it.
Aren’t you one lucky lady ….but then see writer weave a world in their imagination…a world where everything is magnified … …..I won’t call I t exaggeration though coz in real life everything is suppressed so we go wild in the alternate world
Thanks Sakshi, I count my blessings all the time while soaring high in imaginary flights!
