I'm really excited to be back to the blogosphere after a long break. To mark my return i present two poems: The Return and Why are you so weak? Looking forward to get lots of reactions!
I know I have erred my darling
For all the days that I was gone without notice
The journey was long and tiring
And I fell into a hole
Without you there were no sweet dialogues
There were only_____________monologues!
So let the celebration of love and expression
Herald the return of our long lost union
As we wave the dreary, weary, cold nights goodbye.
Why are you so weak?
This question you posed to me
When we revelled under the mango tree
In the centre of the village square
Proved a handful for I racked my brains
So hard and long yet…no answer was in sight!
Then you sounded so worried
And cried for a thousand minutes
In my arms where you found temporary solace
The redness of your eyes told a tale
Of the anxiety that pervaded your entire being
Yes, that night when I returned home
Clothes drenched with your tears
Remains firmly etched on my mind
I recall with astonishing detail your very words
That encapsulated the feelings of the moment
For I share in your joys and sorrows
And that was what I always wanted you to know
Remember our rendezvous at the village dance?
Yet you left when it counted
When you could have shown the world you really cared
With the merchant's son, you left to the big city
Pretending you could get used to its glitz and glamour
I know what you thought then, that money was it all
No wonder you failed to detect
The subtle deceptions of your "lover"
Who was about to defect
Now you know t'was a big illusion
Truth is life is worth more than a couple of bucks
And true joy lies in simplicity-of friendship, honesty and loyalty
Your red tomato eyes tells it all: that pain dominates your soul
Thus you spend all days and all nights mulling over
The consequences of your action
So why are you so weak?
You are weak because you are moved by sight
Of things that hold no permanent value
In fact, you are blind!
