Saying Goodbye (Poetry Challenge- Monorhyme)

by Apurva

Saying goodbye is never easy,

Tears in eyes, heart heavy,

Overwhelmed mind, gushing memories,

of days gone by, in a jiffy,

If only you’d say, I’m not ready…

The Power of Words

by Apurva

What are words,

but bits of ink,

splattered on sheets of paper,

or clouds of smoke on a frosty morning,

from your mouth to a worthy listener!

What are words,

but decorative lines,

that make sense to you and me,

Silly Boy

Unwell, tired, baggy eyes,

barely open, is the end nearby?,

or maybe its not, he seems all right,

We love

slotting people,

putting them

in little boxes,

giving them

fancy labels,

from dumb blonde,

to obnoxious.

We feel

a sense of pride,

Answers that question,

our spontaneous preconceived notions,

about this deathly life

and its fast paced slow motion,

deserve a detailed mention,

or maybe a fleeting discussion,

not coz they create, a clarity of confusion,

but because they confuse..with complete clarification!

They’ll mark the date in the calendar,

with the enthusiasm of an expectant father,

who’s dying to know what his baby looks like,

& can’t wait 6 months longer!

A month before the D date,

they’ll start advertising

their plans,

not to invite us silly,

but to reserve  the T.V. ,

oh damn!!
