Still The King

Filed under: Sojourn — Tags: — Raja @ 12:07 AM

(After this)

As if Ma called, “Raja”
And Papa kept staring with moist eyes!

And halogen painted the quick rain. And there the fairies played, with the suddenly-listless dreams, hopes and ambitions. The childhood comic strip hero and the mermaids waived, may be!

Oh, what a bliss!

A drop of water fell from the railing. And there
she came from the other side of the horizon, bathed in a lovely wind. A thousand tears couldn’t bring her before!

My fairy queen!

No one’s eager eyes to anchor it – no promise for the sun, no hope for a tomorrow. The ship of this life sailed – tearing the infinite night into two!

I didn’t want to leave!

As if Papa cried, “Raja”
And Ma couldn’t speak!

  9. 1. I’m glad that u said what I wanted to hear (“short concise, vivid imagery”) 🙂2. why do u want to hear ‘that’ man’s version? anyway, it’s not easy to write ’bout the thing in small posts with definite ending!3. I am not dead. woh kahte hain na – Long live the king B-)

  22. ??? is something wrong with my understanding of your posts.. i wept when i read this poem.. but i see the comments were quite light and sometimes funny..i mean… i just want to be sure what i am sensing is right…

    A drop of water fell from the railing. And there she came from the other side of the horizon, bathed in a lovely wind. A thousand tears couldn’t bring her before!

    am i sensing the author’s wait for his mother… i think i have lost it !! please forgive me i could not understand the essence of this piece.. i see a child longing for mother…
