Last

I lost my poem,
lost long back.

I wish I never find it,
things of blue-black origin
search for it,
I lost my poem.

- - -

It is just not coming,
not even when I wriggle my insides,
not even when I rack my senses.
It's gone.

Lines are cliched,
sand is white.
Love is not over,
lines are.

- - -

This probably ends here.
Spaces and corners,
are filled with,
fluids of emptiness.

Emptiness is filled with,
all I never knew,
is what I do not.

- - -

Farewell.

An artiste's repentance on losing his loved creation......or has the pain of procreating newer forms turned out to be too over-bearing?I liked the confessional element in this and I have always loved your diction.Nice one :-)

The song shall return some day, with a different colour, it's like goodbye till we meet again. Cheers!

about the lack of poetry

ironic
heartbreakingly so

heartfelt you.....

Aparajita Bhattacharya said...

This was nice. Unique, even. I think this is the first time I've read a poem that says that the poet can no longer write a poem.
Why don't you update your blog? Or does "Last" indeed mean the last? Is this blog dead?

Aparajita Bhattacharya said...

Coleridge's feelings on losing all of Kubla Khan (except for the fragment he'd already written down) might have been expressed this way...um, had he been a more modernistic and not a Romantic poet.

Abira said...

da poem says u dont have lines to rite.....u have forgotten wat poetry is but ur poetry is in ur forgetfulness............trust me!!!!!!!!!

Debs said...

@Aparajita

It is mixed. In a way, I feel I have lost my touch. But, else I feel there is more to come. :)

Aparajita Bhattacharya said...

Will definitely look forward to more of your works, if they are indeed to come.

By the way, the post that you read on my blog is not one of the best. I'd really like you to read "The Music Room" and comment on it.
