~::~ Lonely Warrior ~::~

This time I’m combining 3 prompts, one that I created for myself! 😉

My close friend Rajlakshmi posted her trip to the Wollongong Harbour on her photoblog – Twinkled Eyed Traveller

Somehow my muse started frolicking around for want to make that pic as an inspiration and with Sunday Whirl and Three Word Wednesdays giving me such wonderful words I just had to get it all out of my system!!

So my darling Raji, thank you for the pic and here’s the poem! (I hope I did justice to your pic)

Perched by the blue pristine waters

I sat hopeless and dismayed

Yearning for an eager soul

To tread along my lonely quay

Like the winding river

Uncut by life’s ephemera

I stand my post day and night

Guiding sea-vessels to terra firma

 

Cobalt sober sky as my umbrella

Delicate flowers by the harbour

Jagged stones evolving the shore

With foamy waves hitting in ardour

 

Cobbled pathways leading downstream

Filled with shiny round tiny pebbles

Glistening dew drops like fresh cut diamonds

Lay nestled among the grass petals

 

Awaiting a content soul

On dark murky nights

I stand there fierce and tall

In my white armour, a lonely knight

This time it took me 3 days to complete this poem 😥

But I’m glad that i completed it.. I started off with an abstract genre and somewhere down the line a story just creeped in! 🙄

~::~ Midnight Wanderer ~::~

images

Night subdued

Moonlight’s cue

The silence expelled

Like an Angel’s Spell

He lost track of time

In her voice sublime

Like the science of chemistry

He fell in love helplessly

But fate’s act of smite

On this saintly night

His destiny withheld

Until wrestling heart bled

All love lost

And loneliness accosts

With overflowing memories

Yet heart’s empty!

Like a crack in the mirror

Life changed forever

Like sinking pebbles in lake

Near existence filled his wake

And now like the breeze

He wanders among trees!

sweet_dreams_my_love_by_kaiser_mony-d71ibax

I’ve never slept so soundly before

I’ve never felt tranquil 

I’ve never felt so complete before

To my fragile heart’s fill

 

I’ve never felt so important before

I’ve never felt alive

I’ve never been in love before

All I did was thrive

 

You came as rain to my flower

As blood through my veins

An antidepressant that calms me

And tranquilizer to my pain

 

Your thoughts give me confidence

They are the wind ‘neath my wings

Your love gives me the strength

To fly higher than all beings..

Day 13 A-Z Challenge, M = Magnolia (Quatern)

~::~ Magnolia Dream ~::~

???????????????????????????????????????????

Magnolia! You make me yearn

You blossom wild, in grief I burn

Set ablaze for eternity

My immortal love, come to me

 

In every life, affection spurned

Magnolia! You make me yearn

He came, he left without a trace

Oh, how I crave to see his face!

 

Scorned love, in every existence

Passion decried of its essence

Magnolia! You make me yearn

Time after time in every turn

 

Waiting ‘neath the magnolia tree

For love to set my soul a’free 

I burn with the orange Saturn

Magnolia! You make me yearn!

~::~ Memories Torn ~::~

~::~ Memories Torn ~::~

Lee Plaza Hotel, Detroit, Bonnie Beechler

Memories forlorn

Of years long gone

A place called home

A place to call our own

 

Of crumpled sheets

Kitchen counter treats

Amorous eventide teas

Romance by the trees

 

Of first borns and words

Midnight wails and turds

Of projects & papers

Even best achievers

 

Today we lay chipping

Wallpapers, dirty & ripping

Dusty, grubby and slime

Like rotted wood with time

 

Memoirs vulnerable

Of yesteryears colorful

Dead with the seasons

Irreparable beyond reasons

Waiting_At_The_Altar_Of_Love_by_Onceuponatime13

I looked for you in crowded faces

I looked high and low in myriad places

Wondering where I could find you

And wash away my earthly blues

 

I sit here waiting for the One to love

Awaiting an interlude by heavens above

Anticipating the advent of a soul mate

At the touch of whom my heart’s at pace

 

Oh love! I search, I search for thee

A love that makes me more me

The love that inspired me to rhyme

A love that would last for a lifetime

 

A verse in rhyme I write for you

A verse I dream in love-laced hues

A verse so real, of love surreal

A verse, with my feelings concealed

 

I pine for you and words just flow

I sit writing poems, my face aglow

I write a poem, love poems for thee

Where art thou, come set my heart free!

Written for Dverse Poet Prompt  – to write on what prompted/inspired you to take to poetry.

For me it was Love and the search for the one true love! 🙂 The dreams of which and lack of which inspired me to write many a blissful/mushy/sad poems of love. I hope I have justified the prompt as well as my inspiration – Love!!

~::~ I am Lost, Just Lost ~::~

Image

Sometimes I am up

Sometimes I am down

Sometimes I just trip

And tumble around

 

Sometimes I take left

Sometimes it’s right

Sometimes I do nothing

But just sit up tight

I am lost, so lost… 

 

I wonder where am from

I wonder where I’ll go

I wonder what will happen

If I completely let go

 

I don’t like where I am

I don’t know where to go 

I just know that I am 

Nowhere that I know

I feel lost, so lost..

 

I wish was fine

I wish I was better

I wish never just sat around

Fuming and fretted

 

I feel like m music

I feel like a song

That’s been put in a loop

And played for long

I am lost just lost

 

I don’t know what I like

I don’t know if I would love

I don’t know how my life

Would chart out

 

All I know is I’m alive

All I know is I’m living

And I just manage to get 

Along thriving! 

I still feel lost, so lost!!!
