Tunes of Ruin

He drank wine
It stirred in his blood
Then his spirit woke
I gazed through my veil
His eyes of azure
Marvels on me
Smiling mysterious
In the abyss of spirit
I glanced at him
lifting my veil
Lowered his face
his cold eyes
Chilled my soul
Still untouched
they never speak
A word for me
He walked away
Leaving me
Into oblivion
the flute played
music of ruin
Tune of
Legacy unveiled
Spirit dropping
Saddest dreams

About Rekha Moothedath

I'm a teacher by profession, hailing from Calicut, south-west coast of India. I was brought up in a huge joint family, a home in lush greenery and a mile away from the sea shore. Being married to a defense personnel, has enabled me to travel widely within India and once made me write a poem on the great Andaman islands. I did my post graduation in History and I do research papers and have published a paper on medieval Indian feudal society, in the International History Congress. Sometime in the late nineties initiating a life time love with Latin American poetry I mustered up all my passions in writing. Though my head fought battles and spoke peace, poetry was always a deeply embedded part of my soul and I was enamored of her beauty and traveled through the emotions of tempest and silence and overcame the desolation.

      Absolutely right Louis sir. Some things, though very small or un-noticeable to others, can leave one, with a lot of pain inside. Appreciate your comments, immensely. Thank you.
