Knowing- II

Clad in the bliss
Of the million knitted
Sparkling, twinkling
Tender, warm
Thoughts of you

I can brave the
Cold shoulders
The chilling indifference
The eyes that look in askance
Shuddering perhaps

That I dare to show my
That I am foolish enough
To show I care
Quite unconditionally.

Asking for nothing in return
Except the Grace
The Blessing
Of feelings that abound

Except to always be able
To love you

Knowing that each night
I shall sleep alone
Wrapping my arms around you
Held closer than my own self.

Knowing, that you do too;
And knowing this.
It matters not.

  1. Am lost!! So lost,I am so so so lost in this! Tangible, this poetry!!

    Lovedddddddddd this!!! :)

  2. Sash.. :) :) :) Thankssss :)Thought it was rather silly really :P!

  3. I understand and love silly simple poetry! No sense to delve deep into philosophical ramblings I gather :P So this works real well for me!! :P

  4. What a finish! WHAT A FINISH. There is such an air of indifference that in turn is showing the sincerity of the emotion. Its been long since I have read such a simple and touching poetry (keeping Sashu's Phoenix aside).

    One of your recent bests. Love this.

  5. Sash :) hehehe... I sound so darned pompous don't I? But when this wrote itself, given the recent spate of absurd writes that have come to be, I did wonder if it was just that :) :) Apologies :D! And yes, the silly stuff - I too love :) :) Thank you for keeping me grounded in things that really matter !!

    Soumya! Thank you... very very much. I did wonder if the last lines were out of sync. Now I know it's meant to be that way! Thanks awfully, for seeing it that way; makes me relish a wayward thought and revel in those words again, however egoistic that sounds :D!
    Both of you Sashu and Soumya; you guys are the best :) :)

  6. Is this the 'other woman's' account?
    whose feelings never really did count
    the person whom we always like to taunt
    or perhaps to put her head on a mount.

    Weaving magic with words as always. :)

  7. It is most paramount
    That we read by our account :) :)
    For,to place anything upon a mount
    Sometimes, does it,our soul, taunt?

    I love that perspective, Govind. Seriously, I must consider following your notes on writes all around :) :) And compile them!
    Thank you. As always!

  8. That I dare to show my
    That I am foolish enough
    To show I care
    Quite unconditionally.............Wow..Usha, your words never fail to touch a chord.To be in love is being vulnerable. IT is the only feeling that can tear one apart, and paradoxically can also make one feel complete....Love the simplicity in your words Usha


Thank you for stopping by to leave a note :)
