The Last Song



Amiable musical breeze,
Tranquil moon behind the clouds,
What a transcendental sight!

Million stars befriending me,
As I am writing this silent symphony,
In magnificent yet so lonely night

Shuffling through pages of past,
Replaying somber tunes,
Tearing one by one,
Burning torn pieces,
Blowing away the ashes

I know,
It can’t reincarnate,
but
It won’t gnaw me within,
It won’t tear me apart,
anymore

How I wish,
Those emotions shouldn’t have born!
Once ecstatic, later repressing,
I killed them,
Living with no serenity,
How I wish,
Those emotions shouldn’t have born!

Mind numbing pain, escalating,
My feelings as autumn leaves,
Shedding from heart,
Crumbling, crushing on path

Drizzling raindrops,
Hurts my dried eyes,
Immersing neither hides the pain,
Nor abates it,
I continue to wander,
Still breathing

Future obscure,
Eagerness died away,
For the wait,
That tomorrow embraces,
and
For vision of what lies Beyond Horizon

Warmth burns me,
Cover me with blanket of cold & peace

I wish for,
Calm sleep than shattered dreams

Tonight,
I close my eyes,
While the horizon is dark,
Rhythm now evanescent,
and
I have ended The Last Song


This beautiful song Wait For Sleep, shared by my Best Buddy Manshaa :)
 "In with the ashes
Or up with the smoke from the fire
With wings up in heaven
Or here, lying in bed
Palm of her hand to my head
Now and forever curled in my heart
And the heart of the world"

Your expressions are like desires ..... Peace & Content .... Vanity & Valor ...... poignance & surreal.... brings a smile of content !!!!

U need to keep writing ... or just keep the conversation with yourself on... u can be inspirations to many .... do not smoke away !!!

subtlescribbler said...

befriending the night sky and moon does bring in many emotions unknown..they sometimes have d power to put us in a peaceful slumber but more often they end up making us even more vulnerable!
beautiful :)

Susie Clevenger said...

Beautiful, poignant..full of regret...Yet the last line hopeful..I have ended The Last Song..no more returning to the pain that made you sleepless...kudos for your excellent work!

RM said...

Owwwww I wonder....if pain isn't a handsome carelessly talented painter with piercing eyes and strands of hair accentuating the intoxicating eyes, heartlessly dipping his brush in our hearts to find the colours with which to paint the most beautiful sketches in the skies of our hearts' eyes. Tempting us with the beauty of the sketches and the magnetism of his dark quietness to let him stay, let him keep painting from the colours of our heart.


A very beautiful sketch made of words dear
God bless you
Love

Shuffling through pages of past,
Replaying somber tunes,
Tearing one by one,
Burning torn pieces,
Blowing away the ashes

Menachery said...

Finally :) .. loved it , the depth of pain that someone has gone through couldnt have been summed up more beautifully ...

it wont gnaw me within (i can so relate to that)

how i wish those emotions werent born .. aaahh .. how we often wish .. love the way the feeling of regret has been painted in that para ..

drizzling raindrops, hurts my dried eyes (epic), beautifull..
i think i can go on and on :P.. beautifuly penned, i simply loved the ease at which every para has bloomed to the other .. its inspiring.. like dee mentioned - please keep writing more :)...

Beyond Horizon said...

@Susie
Thanks a lot for the appreciation when it comes from a poet like you.

But I haven't expressed any regret.I am scared of that word. I believe Live is to live along with the pain, so no regrets yet :)

@RM
Overwhelmed, I am!!! Each time your comments sketches a beautiful painting.
Thank you so very much :D

@Pandian
Thank You :)
