Words do matter.

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent
about things that matter~ martin luther king
Words heal..
Words reassure..
Words express...

#4 Nothing but a thought.

Not a poem, not a verse... just a random thought.

Smoke from the Anmol candles factory after the fire was extinguished- Hindustan times. 31 October, 2010.

I saw the burning 
I saw the loss
I saw my dreams on fire

I saw them mourning
I saw them weep
It killed my all desires

Slowly steadily, over the years
We made our small world
One click- it's a history

Maybe it was meant to be
Maybe it's the wish of destiny
Fate, well it's a mystery

Maybe not now
Maybe not yet
But soon enough

We will grow
We will rise
We will create a new ancestry.

When dreams / desires burn, they leave a trail of tears (which dont come) and indifference (we get hurt but it doesnt hurt anymore) ... Been there many times.

Lovely poem.. or thoughts, as u put them :)



Got your link from your comment. Read all current poems. Very engrossing. One on parents was so heart touching. Be positive is what I always say and that is what you brought in this one.

Take care

<3 dis too


.. and only these imperfections make life worth living. A perfect world will be a disaster... there wont be any dreams.. broken or fulfilled...


@sunny- yupp.. i m fan of twain.

@mayank- u r right, some unfulfilled dreams and some things unknown keep us going.


A beautifully written poem - thank you for writing on this topic - to remind us of those who were lost.



A strong poem of mixed emotions. Sadness and loss together with a desire to arise again.
Fire is well captured in your words!

Best wishes, Eileen


I like that you ended it on an up note~
Sadness n' despair...your poem, had it all~
