The River

Posted on Updated on

The sun lets its Silver rays on my window panes,

And today the day seems never ends,

As days feels like years now,

And clock seems never clicks,

Starring to my calendar as I stand,

It feels like hard to go on in suffocation,

Like pushing a heavy cargo away,

And I stay silent in the low light,

Breathing slowly like Turtles,

Hearing the hissing sound of my rooms fan,

As the thoughts are heavy to carry,

For a heavy heart in the middle of deep green river,

Drowning for nothing but no cause,

As I still stand on the same road,

Where people come and gone,

Like Fireflies do in the dark voids of the thin air,

And sometimes I wish I could go back,

To the day we sat on the tree branch,

Where entire lawn lied like a sea,

Where birds chirp and chatter,

And I wish I were the one,

The one who could leave thee folks,

To start everything over,

Just like the Miley Cyrus Song,

Leaving behind the all the hurting memoirs,

And tales from the other bank of the river,

I feel like hanging on a rope,

Waiting for a train to come and take me,

The train that will take me long away,

The train that I know will never come,

Remembering the words of paths not taken,

But I have decided to stay,

That I have some choices and chances to take,

To dye each day or to live each day,

I have decided to live and let live,

And I know that I am not the only one to stay back in to woods,

So I let the river to flow and cleanse me,

And take me to wherever it goes,

Sometimes life is better like messages of bottles from the sea,

As it is better to bury the past as deep as I can do,

And grab the future that I have right in my palms,

I can smile as much I wish whenever I need it a lot,

To seek the hidden truth is all I have to do,

To unfold the unknown mysteries of my life,

I know this is the best feeling I ever have,

This is Safe heaven that I can hold onโ€ฆ

    I received much enjoyment reading you poem. The story captures you mind like a good book waiting to see what happens. To start again is to make new memories, good or bad.
    Separate the good from the bad and keep your safe haven at hand.

    I believe it is wise to let go of the past and move forward to the new day that awaits us. What’s done is done and gone. Today is what’s important.
    I enjoyed this poem!

    Many times we have to make various decisions – to stay or go, it’s hard. But one thing we know for sure, whenever we close one door, another door will open for us. It’s tough sometimes – though we know that’s life.
    I could feel your thoughts running from beginning to end. Loved it ๐Ÿ™‚

    If you stay tied to the shore with the rope of past regrets, you’ll never get to see the beautiful vistas life has for you , waiting just beyond yonder bend of the river. Flow along ๐Ÿ™‚

    Your images are intriguing and kept me reading, though though the confusion of your imperfect English were roadblocks along the way.

    My first visit from Poetry Pantry.

    These are some deep emotions.
    Life is full of ups, downs & setbacks, but it’s also filled with happiness, laughter and of course love.
    Life is worth living…keep on looking & moving forward.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Bashful Lady
