Unwavering Vivid Thoughts




The roads go by as I sit silently by the window.
Men chattering beside me, incessantly, about nothing at all.
People coming and going as they please, entering, leaving.
I look out the window thinking about her, completely oblivious.

I close my eyes as the day's strenuous travel takes toll.
Put my cap on my face to shut out the light.
People clamouring outside, I can but hear them at all.
With a smile upon my face, thinking about her, I withdraw.

I awaken, check my phone for updates, check my watch for the time.
People rustling about on the platform outside, unable to draw my attention.
The music playing inside, fascinating yet unable to excite my senses.
Her gift is all I see, all I think about; in my mind she remains vivid.

I take a book out and decide to read until I reach my destination.
I play some music when the book decides not to absorb me.
I close my eyes to open them again, read some more and listen too.
My thoughts, sometimes faint, sometimes strong are always the same.

The girl I just left is in my mind; she remains vivid in my dreams.
She inhabits my mind, my heart, everything I own and all I have.
She lives in me and stays all the while, rapturing my nerves for I miss her.
As I think of seeing her again, in a few short weeks, and embracing her with my love.

Amidst all the chaos,
The rat race that leaves me behind,
Hurrying to catch up,
Never quite satisfied,
One thing remains stagnant,
Yet flows like a pacifying gush,
My heart beating in your absence,
Playing a melancholic rhythm,
Hovering over your thoughts, now penned,
I smile in affection as my cheeks show a red flush...

I love you.

And the thoughts shall always remain so.
They shall never waver, whatever I do.
In all my words and all my actions,
You remain always empowering.
Vividly I see you, always I think of you.

I love you too, Enchanta.

The treasured thought,
trots and trots.

They travel all the way,
around the earth.
No, they do not fray,
they return, to where they took birth-
On the same day.
This repeats endlessly, everyday.

D2 said...

@Aayushi : Thanks a lot. :)

@GvSparx : Thank you so much. Another poem will be here today! Do read it. :D

D2 said...

@Sayak :

And the repetition is what creates magic.
For the monotone is removed.
Because the repetition is always
Something new, something beautiful.

D2 said...

@Enchanta : Stop by whenever you please. It's all yours. :-)

GvSparx said...

I came hoping for the new one as you said... probably I'll find it later...
Anyways, I advice you to remove captcha( word verification) as you never get spam comments on personal blogs, I hardly got any on my blog in past one year..
Anyway, do tell me when you're ready with your new one..
