And ...

(Image Source: http://fineartamerica.com)


And a ray of hope flickers in the sky
And I sprout wings, and I learn to fly
And fly do I in our distant past
And dive back into the story that failed to last
And I go through the nooks and corners that glow
And I try to run, but oh am so slow
And calling out your name, I swim across tears
And I try one last time, abandoning all fears
And it was too late
And you started to hate
And you said you can't
And this wasn't what I want
And I wake up with souls new found
And they made me believe that the world is round
And ah, that's a rumor, the earth is flat
And couldn't this be an excuse for an unearthly chat
And we can soar beyond the stars
And a new found journey that won't be a farce
And we sail smooth in our garden of trust
And I know it's true, 'cause I have seen worst
And I sprout wings, and I learn to fly
And a ray of hope flickers in the sky.

  1. This was very sweet! There are no words to describe that kind of longing and hurt.. and there is no pain like the loss of a love, and the heartache that comes with it..

  14. i couldn't help noticing that in most of the poems "journey" or "voyage" or "flying" is present .. goes to show.. how much a poet wants to explore MORE :)
