Lost Words and Seized Heart


I tried to pick my words

From the golden ray shimmer

To write a song

So it can be the music to your ear

And the twinkle of your eye

I tried to write about love and spring

And not about blister and ache thing

I struggled to pick out title “As Perfect as Sky”

And not the “Fading sunshine and Never-ending Cry”

I tried to fill the pages with smiles

And not the hurtful lies

I attempted to rhyme your feelings

With mine

So that you can end your wandering

And set down the roots

I want you to read it

So it can make your soul feel lighter

I tried to include all the adoring metaphors

So I can see your pretty and sparkly eyes

While reading them

I wanted to write about each fragments

Of joyous memories

So I tried to summoned the smell of ocean air

In every pages

To refill your life by the scent of potion

I tried to choose my words wisely


They are lost

I wonder how to write about love

Without considering hate

How to write about peace

Without looking at what war is?

How to write about a heart

That’s never bent on revenge

It is hard to write about those treasures

That can’t be seen

Now can you tell me

How’s it feel to have your heart seized?

And how the pain feels like?

So I can infill all the lost pages

With love

that world never knows

And so we all can hear our heart beatings

Through the song

“As perfect as sky”

Thank you so much Chitrangada for the beautiful comment!!

I am so glad that you like the poem.

You’ve said it right, “ Life is a combination of both extreme - Love and Hate, peace and War.”

And we are free to choose either of them but at the end we are not free from the consequences of our choice.

Take care and May god bless you

Thank you so much Brenda!!

Yes, We can’t deny it that each and everything comes with two sides, each story we hear has two sides, every people we met has two sides, and even the eternity has two sides - Heaven and Hell.

And we really should embrace both, in order to choose the correct one.

Chitrangada Sharan from New Delhi, India on September 02, 2021:

Beautifully expressed poem, realistic and thoughtful.

How can we think of love, without considering hate, how can we think of peace, without considering war- - -.

Life is a combination of both the extremes, and you have done a good job, by highlighting this, with your creativity.

Thank you for sharing.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on September 02, 2021:

Great piece here!

It's hard to find love without hate.

The opposite is always lurking around each corner.

Embrace them. Write about them all.

Thank you so much John!!

I’m glad to hear that you like the poetry.

Very well said, we have to deal with every ups and downs but with positive attitude.

“Accept every situation with smile and move on with even a bigger smile, No matter weather that smile is real or fake because no one really cares.”

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on September 02, 2021:

Nice writing Srushti. Your poem conveys deep emotion, and with everything in life there is two sides - love/hate, peace/war, joy/sadness etc.

We have to deal with all but focus most of our attention on the positive and good.

Thank you Ms. Dora!!

Yes, life is an eternal quest and we just have to accept the things to which the fate binds us. There’s a lot of unpredictable and unexplainable things that life has shown us.

No matter how much we plan and prepare ourselves, Life is still unpredictable.

Dora Weithers on September 02, 2021:

Your soulful questions make us consider what the perfect answer might be. It seems that life is an eternal quest to know. Good poetry!
