This was my turn

The moment,

When your silent smile,

Convinced me……!

Kept me alive……….!

Like I will be alive forever……

Till the day you beat inside………..!

Being the pulse…….!


 

Yes, I do remember

Do you do……?

Those promises, we made….!

Holding you, in my arms…….!

In those silent moments……..!

When you locked my voice,

Within your lips…….!


 

Do you remember……?

Those commitments……….!

You made with me……!

Aggressive, passionate, almost mad……..!

Those Promises to kill,

If being apart………..!

I remember………..!

Yes I do……..!


 

OK, tell me,


 

Though you are in my arms……..!

Why do I feel distance?

Thousand miles distance…..!

Even if you hold my hand,

Walk beside me…….!

And now what……?

If I see you going,

Away, far away……….!


 

Why…..?

I feel my breath stopped……….?

Feel the pulse disappeared,

It was you…..!

Are you nowhere within me…….?

Any more……….?


 

May be…….?

You follow those promises to kill,

So you kill me…….….?

But why so slow…….?

Why made it so painful…….?


 

You have been the kind most,

Just be once,

Once again………

Kill me,

Silently, fast, unfairly….!


 

Unfairly ??????????


 

Oops…………

I had to be you……..!


 

Yes this had to be me

Because this was my turn….?

hmmm.... i have read it a couple of times just to cross check whether i have interpretted it the way it was meant to be....
but belive me everytime i went thru it, i was engulfed by it more than the previous time...nd though the poem seems long at the first sight but wen i cud read it in one single breath for it is so engrossing...... probably because of those incomplete phrases that u have chosen to use instead of complete sentences...these add a sense of urgency to the poem, nd hence one cannot pause until the end...

inspite of the simplicity of the language nd expression used,it is quite heavy a poem ... but still the effort is worth it... a gem of a poem I wud say…
