Verses for you

I wrote verses for you, my dear,
Verses gathered from love and tears
On a corner of a half- charred page
Within my dust laden soul..
Sun came and went, so did the wind
Rain was tending to eat them away
But I couldn’t find solitude , to sweep them together
I could never see an unwrinkled white page
To jot down before they could fade..
I couldn’t find a hut in the middle of a meadow
On the bank of a silent stream..
I could not find a quiet corner
In the middle of this hustling city
To unload the stinking bundle of hopes.
I could not find even a corner
Where I could shut my eyes and ears
To fight with the creeping hands of the past…
And so I fell, I fell into a deep sleep
Burning the remaining corners with rage
Before they could smother me mercilessly
And I lost them, as I lost you once..

About Fathima Manal

Dreams,fantasies,words and rhythm-other than skin,bones and muscles I am made up of these.With every drop of blood that my heart pumps,a new dream forms in me.With every breathe,i take the surroundings too inside me.And my poems are just the minute regurgitants of what i accumulate within. I am a doctor from Kerala,India,who should not be supposed to but is in deeply love with words and books more than medical books.Hope you enjoy my poems......
