Death of Emotion

For the last few days its being easier for me to write poetry (though sporadically) than articles. Lets see whats next in store.

Death of Emotion


His heart clenched

When he saw her on board

A wishful prayer

Of God bought forth


She walked inside

Took a seat facing his back

He kept turning

To figure her outta pack


It’s being few months since

He’d last had a glimpse

The place was same

But the time different


But this time

T’was a long haul

He kept turning

As history strolled


They’d talked once

He’d always remember

Days of adolescence

Were full of adventure


They’d walked together

Talking ‘bout world

As one’s fancies flew

One’s was unruffled


He confided his love

As his nature was so

He paid a price

She forget him soon


They met twice again

But she didn’t ‘cognize

As his heart clenched

Her beat fine


Today when she board

His emotions soared

And gave a shriek

Of an animal getting caught


It’s being long time

He consoled himself

The death of emotion

is consolation.

Love exists in many forms, just not what they call true love!
Well written.
