ALONE


English: Leaving traces on soft sand dunes in ...

In the middle of the desert,

I stand alone,

amidst the whirling sands of time,

in shape of turbulent sandstorm,

eroding the particles to distant zones…

 

How far they reach! where from they arrive!

Hitherto was a blanket quiet ,

sometimes cool ,sometimes hot,

where silent golden specks slept,

under the vast expanse .

 

I gaze in awe ,

I get surprised,

I get frightened…

Standing alone…

in the middle of the desert.

 

I smile for a while,

I weep in anguish,

I cry in pain,

Still I stand alone…

in the middle of the desert!

 

Grains of sand  get blown away,

along my sides with friction,

leaving me standing alone…

in the middle of the desert!

 

Can I get my moment back,

lost in this golden sands,

when I won’t have to

stand alone ..

come whatever can!

  1. Nobody would want to feel that way.. But some times by being alone one gets their greatest strength.. The emotions come pouring out with this one.. Lovely lines, Soumya.

    • very true ! its the solitude that sometimes makes us realize what we are and why?thanks

  2. ……..beautiful and yet one that tugs on the heart……..but then again, love makes sweet and sad the same…….. I love this, Soumyav. ~ Ever, Bobbie

  3. Piercingly honest. Feelings of angst and silent surrender creates a lasting impression in this poem. I like your ‘ink’. Cheers.

  4. I became little emotional while reading these lines, dunno why? Is that becoz of the melodious song tha’s playing as a background-score? Not really. Hey, it touches me. By the way desert is a perfect metaphor!! :)

    • Seems you got drowned in the melody of the metaphor! its great to see that the lines touched you,Britton!

  5. Your poetic words hit my core. I pray to sit beside you someday and learn from the bounty of your wisdom.
