Enigma


An enigma you are, ununderstood, unsolved
Crawling silently, a visitor uncalled
You come in and settle without a knock
And speak no words, there's nothing to talk

Face, body, colour, taste and smell you lack
Your presence is pregnant silence black
You look and find your image in my eyes
Slowly replaced by the vast skies

Wind of sorrow turbulent grips the sky tight
Poor sky is no match to the delirious might
It screams thunder and cries out rain
Then no wind or sky, only my trickling tears of pain

I need a shoulder to lean and cry
And a hand to soothe my sigh
You've caused my heart's turmoil and emptiness
I ask your identity,
you say, "My name is Loneliness".

Diksha Neel said...

Hi all...yes I do have an anthology of my poems published (when i was 14 years of age, almost 10 years back). It is, however, in Marathi, an Indian language.

Kathleen said...

ah to dive into lonliness... a dive that is really a dive into the deep longing for the beloved... that is a dive worth taking...

SCRIBBLEZ TO WAKEUP said...

Lonliness...Something tht we hate when we have it n sometimes we ask "can u leave me alone"..Sometimes makes me feel its a necessary evil for some people....
"You look and find your image in my eyes"- This is a beautiful statement...Nice pick :)

Kuan Gung said...

diksha, I'd be real interested in seeing these, or purchasing it. Please post some more at your site...

Kuan Gung said...

Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the spaces between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
