I shall keep my heart silent

Monday, February 16, 2009

Don’t overlook my misery by fluttering your eyes,
and weaving tales; My patience has over-brimmed.
O sweetheart, why don’t you clasp me to your heart
like in the long curls of the night we separated,

after the short lived day of our union?

How will I pass the dark dungeon night

without your face before me,.
Suddenly, using a thousand wiles,
those enchanting eyes robbed me

of my tranquil mind;

Who would explain this to my darling?

Tossed and bewildered, like a flickering candle,
I roam about in the fire of love;
sleepless eyes, restless body.
She neither comes, nor sends any message.

In honour of the day, should I meet my beloved

again, the one who has lured me so long,
I shall keep my heart silent

and so get a chance to practise her trickery.

Amrita Kumari said...

i can very easily see the improvement in your writting in this poem.

I shall keep my heart silent
and so get a chance to practise her trickery

trickery of playing with emotions & ignoring the emotions by fluttering of eyes?

Trying to forget someone you love is like trying to remember someone you never met

David O. Brink said...

well composed, love and need of beloved is evident in this poem...
If I could have one lifetime wish, one wish that would come true, I'd pray to God with all my heart, for yesterday...and you

LIKED THESE LINES SPECIALLY THE LAST TWO

Ruchika Mittal said...

This feeling of distrust
this ache........... this break
so near yet your voice is so far away
why must we leave
why must we say goodbye
this break....... this pain....this rip in my chest
these tears rolling down my eyes
you walk as i refuse to say goodbye
it all comes crashing down
as i fall and our love dies

Shweta Saxena said...

Romantic love reaches out in little ways, showing attention and admiration. Romantic love remembers what pleases a woman, what excites her, and what surprises her. Its actions whisper: you are the most special person in my life.

Love has features which pierce all hearts, he wears a bandage which conceals the faults of those beloved. He has wings, he comes quickly and flies away the same.

Shweta Saxena said...

Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs.
Being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers' eyes.
Being vexed, a sea nourished with lovers' tears.
What is it else?
A madness most discreet,
a choking gall and a preserving sweet.

lovely composition like the last stanza most....

Once there was one, and now we are two
But one of us thinks this is not true
To be put together is what I really hope
Because all this while I can't seem to cope

To spend a lifetime with you
That is such a dream
Your words, your love, and your presence too
I miss them to the extreme

How I want to be back together
With our ten fingers laced
How I want to be with you forever
So that our love will never be erased

I want to feel my heart's rapid beat
When you come into my sight
I want to jump for joy when we finally meet
And hug you with all my might

I want you to love me
Because I love you so much
This break up is not meant to be
This cannot be the final touch

I want to tell my children
When they ask me something sudden
"Who was your first love, mother?"
I don't want to pull out photographs

I will just have to point to you
And say,
"Darlings, this is the example of love so true."

Dr.Rita Raman said...

When you love someone, you love the whole person, just as he or she is, and not as you would like them to be.

Dr. Gunjan Gehlot said...

wow!!
Love and need of it cud'nt have been pened down in a better way, really u have improved a lot, i know the love too must have intensified...

take care

Dr. Gunjan Gehlot said...

Would you just listen and please don't say a word, just yet,
I'd like you to think back to the very first time we met,
How you felt around me? The memories we shared,
And just remember that once upon a time, you really cared.

Now think about how we parted, and how much I cried,
But please don't speak, remember that I never ever lied,
That I told you the honest truth about why we were to split,
But now I'd like you to know that my heart broke bit by bit.

Dr.Rita Raman said...

well composed...Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.

Shilpi said...

well composed

The pain was deep, unbearable and painful, for so many years,
I'll never forget all the sadness, all the uncontrollable tears,
Slowly I am rebuilding my life, I am content with what I've got,
And although it is hard I am beginning to forget what I have not.

You were a special part of my life that I will never forget,
A part of my life that broke my heart, but that I don't regret,
You gave me some happy memories that I'll keep in my heart,
Although sometimes I wish that you and I didn't have to part

nice one, well expressed emotions, desires n love

Mehnaaz said...

You can shed tears that she is gone,
or you can smile because she has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that she'll come back,
or you can open your eyes and see all she's left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see her,
or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember her only that she is gone,
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back.
Or you can do what she'd want:
smile, open your eyes, love and go on

I don't pretend to know what love is for everyone, but I can tell you what it is for me; love is knowing all about someone, and still wanting to be with them more than any other person, love is trusting them enough to tell them everything about yourself, including the things you might be ashamed of, love is feeling comfortable and safe with someone, but still getting weak knees when they walk into a room and smile at you

Anonymous said...

This is my wish for you: Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, Love to complete your life.

Only Love Can Break Your Heart

Summer, you’re unwelcome in my room,
leave me be, overwhelmed by grief.
Drunk on whiskey from The Pharaoh’s Tomb I’m weak as a pacifist,
I’m eaten alive by jealousy, only god knows why.
Just like only god knows why Alan said coming out is fab and brill
like falling in love.
Summer, be gone! Alan’s gone. Family and friends are gone.
Neil Young is right: Only love can break your heart.
My heart is unmendable.
I am forever in my room, heartbroken, and nobody is there,
forever spending my days killing time until time kills me.

I loved you; even now I may confess,
Some embers of my love their fire retain,
But do not let it cause you more distress,
I do not want to sadden you again.
Hopeless and tonguetied, yet I loved you dearly
With pangs the jealous and the timid know;
So tenderly I loved you, so sincerely,
I pray God grant another love you so.

Anonymous said...

Once upon a time I gave you my love
Once upon a crime you cheated on me

I gave you my heart, you broke it in two
Now asking for forgiveness, how dare you could do?

Thinking of me as a fool, out of mind
Giving that other chance is really out of hands

I wonder, how could you cheat, while feeling all that heat?
Passion of love is not enough to make me indiscreet

To give you back my love, after all what you made me going through
If I say I do, then I will be the one who is cheating now on you

Listen to me and stop to pretend.
Broken hearts can mend.
Broken love it has to end.

It is impossible to fall out of love. Love is such a powerful emotion, that once it envelops you it does not depart. True love is eternal. If you think that you were once in love, but fell out of it, then it wasn't love you were in. There are no 'exit' signs in love, there is only an 'on' ramp.

Priya Talwar said...

When my love swears that she is made of truth,
I do believe her though I know she lies,
That she might think me some untutored youth,
Unlearned in the world's false subtleties.
Thus vainly thinking that she thinks me young,
Although she knows my days are past the best,
Simply I credit her false-speaking tongue:
On both sides thus is simple truth suppressed:
But wherefore says she not she is unjust?
And wherefore say not I that I am old?
O! love's best habit is in seeming trust,
And age in love, loves not to have years told:
Therefore I lie with her, and she with...

You carried the soul from my body
and yet you are still part of that soul;
you inflicted pain, but are still the remedy.
