I am a minuscule speck of dust A tiny grain of filth I am the swollen wooden floor A can of water spilled I am the grimy furniture A mess upholstered with despair I am the candle splattered table A leg broken off of an ornate chair I am the spider webs of desolation A tangled thready nightmare I am the peeling paint on the walls A thing at which people would once stare I am the falling plaster of loneliness And stuck between the past and present I am the rusty pipes that clang A series of dirt laden crannies and dents I am the shattered porcelain vases A bouquet of dried and rotting flowers I am the mangled music box A grandfather clock left counting hours I am the frayed and threadbare carpet A once celebrated and admired finery I am the crumbling brick walls A burden full of doubt and misery I am the broken hopes and desperation A basket full of your incessant lies I am that house you left abandoned And conveniently forgot to say goodbye
How did the reluctant people that we were ever together come to be ? I became the nourishing spring rain and you the beautifully blossoming cherry tree. Together we became a season, unanimous and forever united unconditionally .
Decked in shades of ebony I live Enveloped in the darkness of the night Yet my lucid dreams are filled with Festering images in pristine white Draped in a cloak of inky nimbus clouds I regrettably barely survive Yet my thoughts are constantly invaded by Your ivory person delighting in the light Consumed by a fire of passionate longing My melancholic overtures often take flight Yet you remain sturdily embedded in me In my prolonged misery finding delight Engrossed in catastrophic ideas of love I try and mitigate the desires I feel inside Yet you entice me with your demeanour And misleadingly my imagination ignite I lie sprawled on the floor dressed in shadows Hoping that one day we will unite Yet you overlook the myriad temptations Belittling my existence forever in an oversight
You are like that hot cup of tea I cannot possibly fathom without spice A blend of heady caffeine, Stimulating tea leaves and everything nice Warm ginger and pungent cardamom Hit the steaming water of the tea Saccharine sugar adds the desired sweetness Spicy pepper makes it feisty The dried tea leaves add amber tones Milk infuses softness to the boiling brew And lo behold we’ve made a cup of chai tea With spices that form a bouquet known to a few The aroma of the spices and herbs combine To form a fragrance I associate with us two This is the version I like best mostly Because it incessantly reminds me of you
lovenotes_from_carolynLove this delightful penning! The image quote is very relatable due to my Irish gratitude, who would hand you a cup of tea as soon as any health problems or various troubles were mentioned.
lunarwolfI like the way you wrote this. From a perspective of a small creature that goes unnoticed but could also go for a person who disappears in a crowd. Someone everyone else looks. This was amazing and I dont see how it doesnt have more likes! I love the way you approach things in your writing. Always amazes me! Great job once again on this piece
pallavi4@lovesmessenger I’m so happy you liked it. That seal of approval means more than likes for the post. Sometimes I feel complicated, layered poetry does not bode well with readers simply because it is not understood the way it should be. Sometimes the timing of the post hampers its progress. Either way, although I’m always grateful for likes and comments , I write because the poem gets stuck inside me and seeks release. For me the release is important. If it is liked then great, if not then there’s always another day , another poem 😊
lunarwolf@pallavi4 I know I felt that's how you are. That's what makes me find your work even more interesting. The way you write and why you write. A very kind and humble soul that bleeds their thoughts and emotions into every word. I respect and appreciate you! Sincerely thank you for gifting us your beautiful writings!
pallavi4I am truly touched by your words. Coming from a brilliant writer as you , it means even more. Thank you so much. The feeling of appreciation and respect is completely mutual😊
