A whisper (poem)


This poem is dedicated to Narendra Nayak, a fellow blogger (asliveroflife.wordpress.com), whose insight into our lives as humans and our existence are much in line with mine. I have been rather uninspired lately to write poetry, but after enjoying his photography and writing, I wrote up the poem below last night before sleeping.

word whispers

A whisper

whisper in my ear
what you want me to tell you
for I don't know what you want to hear.

time is like the steam rushing to escape the kettle
only to be left with none.

will you love me forever?
touch my hand so I know everything will be ok?

just one glance and I fall all over again
before I say goodbye.

In this thing called life, we need to take some time to ponder. It allows us to gain insight into ourselves and those around us.

  1. I am truly honoured to be the spark which has re-kindled this fire within your musings. Each sentence of the poem makes you pause and ponder; the impact of the words brings about an avalanche of thoughts and forces one to introspect. Truly phenomenal! I definitely want to see you write more often and give us readers the pleasure of imbibing your thoughts.

  2. Thanks Narendra for taking the time to comment and inspire! I definitely plan to write more. Actually, I wrote one more last night for tomorrow’s post 😉
