Penultimate dream

Two days straight
I stayed quiet
Lost in thought
All yours.
On the third,
I thought not of you
And since then
I have not thought.

Of those days we laughed
Shared and cared
And loved.
Of the time we spent
On grass, in water
In the moonlight together
I have not thought.

I shall not dwell
On when you'll be here
For you will be here
And then we shall live
All those days
Again, those evenings

Wonderful poetry. Simple and touching :)

Meghana Naidu said...

finally. poetry ;)

'Simple and touching' is what i think too :)

somehow doesn't leave me with a sense of warmth, EVEN though the last lines appear to literally indicate it.
there is something in the structure that suggests otherwise.
is that so or is it just my despondent mind?

and no jargon, no theatrics! which is becoming so so rare to find.

@ Nakli:

Thank you. :)

@ Architect:

Umm. I don't know. :|
This is my first time with non-fictitious poetry. That is probably why it lacks 'drama'.

Vinay Hegde said...

Nice. :)

Reminded me of some songs from The Beatles. Plain and beautiful. :)

Kertz said...

Good to see you trying this :)

From a critic's point of view, there's a lot of room for improvement. Walk or jump around the theme and see if you can write it differently. I'm sure you can do better :)

Akshata said...

@ Hegde:

Thank you. :)

@ Kertz:

Thank you. :) I do not want to jump around the theme, though. When you jot down exactly how you feel about somebody, jumping around the theme just isn't the way to go. :)

Meghana Naidu said...

but thats a good thing i meant!
both the fact that it doesnt leave "me" with a sugary-pop feeling an that its devoid of theatrics.

non-fictitious poetry, sticky subject, ;)

Kertz said...
