I walk on a road lush with dreams,
a road of forgotten and veiled dreams,
sometimes slowly, sometimes gaily,
sometimes lost, sometimes profound,
I walk a road of unknown mysteries,
fervently finding my way through the endless path.....

Not just today.....




Its not today that you left me
a long time has passed
memories and memoirs have faded
in the ocean of life, big and vast.

Its not today that I cried
hiding myself in the dark
sobs and tears are a familiar part
and cuts that leave a mark.

Its not today that I pasted an empty smile
for the fake world to see
all they know is a happy girl
who cares what's going inside me.

Its not today that I tried to let go
all that life bestowed
in the form of sufferings and pain
and hurdles on the road.

Its not today that I accepted
what life presented to me
you and I were different people
and were never meant to be 'we'.

Its not today that I heard 'let go and move on'
from folks to whom it matters not
time can never be a healer
but a mere illusionary guard.

    1. umm..sadness is just a state of mind, comes in at times! and you kinda observed it right...i wrote this poem at two different times...so the flow might be appearing disconnected :D

    Time is a healer, I would heal when you let yourself be free. Free of the bounds that still hold you into those clutches of past. Let go. There's a reason for everything. One who couldn't understand your worth ain't worthy of being remembered for too long.

    Take care and smile :)

    1. I do agree to you but as for time being a healer, well i do have little doubts about that part. As I have mentioned it in the last lines too...

  5. Time doesn't heal, because time itself is an illusion.

    Once you are shattered, broke its very difficult to come back to life.

    Nobody understands you, nobody ever will. The moment when you realise the person whom you cared for so much never even spares a thought for you, it hurts.

    You just learn to live with the facts, the bitter reality, you learn to battle through the days and then long dark endless teary nights. But it doesn't ever go away.

    Nice poem :)
    Cheers,

    1. very rightly said Tanvi, coming back to life is difficult and moving on that track again is even harder. most of us just learn to compromise and live with whatever life presents but past is never forgotten! thanks :)

  6. Hey...

    Well i loved the closing.."Time can never be a healer, but a mere illusionary guard.." nice...well the thoughts seem to be dwelling in a distant past, hence, the time has stopped there. unless the thoughts come to the present, how can you expect time to heal? when we say heal, dont expect it to erase, it will merely "heal"
    :)

    nice lines...could connect to them...


    Regards,
    Eon

    1. you are right that there is a difference between healing and getting erased. And healing is but a very long phase :))
      glad you could connect!
