A Thousand Years


Can I say that I could live,
a thousand years without seeing your face,
yet every living moment my soul,
your resonating life, it would chase,

I know I tried so hard to fill,
the emptiness from our demise,
and as my dreams were poached I realized,
the nuptial rings were never our size,

I'd like to think that I could be,
complete without your presence here,
yet every starry night my eyes,
hope to find your shadow near,

I wanted so much to become,
the one you thought I always was,
a thousand years I must now repent,
a thousand years' worth of flaws.

Imroz....I visited your blog from Saru's FB profile...and the first poem I read, I am recating OH My God!..yeah, I uttered these words exactly and I wish you could see my expression.

What you have written guy! Its painful, deep, so profound, I think just like your hurt. Life is complicated and often there are no U-turns. Regret and wait for the next birth is what we start believing in.

These words touched by soul-
a thousand years I must now repent,
a thousand years' worth of flaws.

I am sure, I am staying on your blog for many more words.

Take care.

@Shaifali: I must thank Saru of course for directing readers to my blog and let me tell you I don't get as many comments on my blog as I would like but to get even one comment like the one you left makes the wait worth it.

Thank you for your kind words, for relating and absorbing the meaning of my poetry. I look forward to more comments and feedback in the future.

Keep reading!
