sigh...I read this beautiful, but sad poem as taking the high road and letting go, even though your heart has question. Taking the high road isn't always filled with immediate satisfaction, but hopefully it will be resolved.
Ms. Meena, this is beautifully written and heart-breaking at the same time. I love the tone of the poem, you can't help but be absorbed in it. With the speaker here left with many questions, a familiar feeling came back to me. Sometimes relationships end like that...so many questions left unanswered. A great write here, Ms. Meena.
If I am free to put my thoughts on this poem, then to me this poem sounds kind of sensual love.
Like something was going to happen between two people, known or unknown, but it didn't happen and that moment lost or gone with the person who left the other.
Between these two people one was ready to lose everything to the other one, but he just left without a why?
Without caring about the disturbance his smile brought in the atmosphere of her heart.
She almost saw herself uncovered in his eyes as in that moment their thoughts were twisted together.
She was ready for their souls to get entwined too by following his scent blindly to the sanctuary of happiness and to show him that holy place which she had kept as a secret for so long. But before any of could have happened, he left without saying why?
Forgive me, Ms Meena, If I have disturbed you with my angle of viewing this poem of yours.
Content of the poem is really strong. I really loved the language, and the words you chose while writing this poem. Flow is smooth.
What else I should say?
I think it deserves to be on the front page without a why?
All the best!
A beautiful piece with vivid imagery. Love lost and questions unanswered is often worse because you don't know why or what it was that went wrong which makes it more difficult to grieve. I loved the way you embodied the deep emotion with motion in such an effortless way. "Ask me to be silent and I will, but not my heart which you left in the wake of a turbulent smile" leads us straight into the storm in me" definitely one for my favourites list. Best wishes Milly x
What a beautiful write Meena. I was always a fan of your poetry. So pure so deep are your writes. You hold a talent we all wish we had as poets. Who can read your poetry without feeling every emotion you weave into each verse. This is a master piece in poetry.
