2012

by Purvi Gadia   Jan 14, 2015


I don't know why do you expect me to hate you
when you have given me so much to remember;
a plethora of memories from last December.

While sitting on that cemented place,
a friendly chilly breeze touched me,
which filled me with the warmth that was igniting inside.

You were the magnet of my life then,
who held me together in one piece;
you were that tree,
from which I plucked fruits of euphoria, bliss and ecstasy.

It was dusk and there were very few colors(hope) left in the sky,
but the sun finally crossed the rivers of horizon to meet east.

There were a myriad of words on my lips,
which I was wishing would magically travel through time and space and reach you;
but my lips were sealed with pleasure, and words-unsaid and forgotten.

It was under the stars and the moon
where we sat in silence
conversing about this long awaited moment.

Little did you know then,
that two nights before this,
I had wished on a shooting star
to align the stars of my fate
to fabricate this delicate moment for me.

The flames that had engulfed me all this time,
finally extinguished.
And I,
like the epitome of serenity
cut all those satin threads that tied me to you.

I don't know why do you think I'm as frail as a thread,
which will break with your slightest pull...

Only if you had studied me more,
tried to understand me,
you would know
that my heart is a blue diamond,
which only another blue diamond can break.
But you aren't a blue diamond.

    Oh my goodness! I can't believed I missed this - somehow but I'm glad I've read it now. This is amazing, Purvi, you've got talent. It's beautiful and touching and just like you described in your poem, very serene and sweet.

    A couple of things here, One: In the first line, I don't think you need the word "do" it cuts off the flow for me. Second: In the fourth stanza, I don't think you need (hope). It would make more sense to me if you took it out. Otherwise I do like this poem a lot as well. I like how you have 2012 as the title because it goes with the poem in a way that you remember everything that happened and the memories you have are good and bad. It gives the reader a perspective that they can imagine happening and want to be in. great write. 5/5
