I share with you
prosaic summer evenings
cicadas in sycamores
a nostalgia for
the life never led

you, simply by the virtue of
continuing presence, enthrall me
as would any phantasm of life
enrapture a woman slumped
irrevocably into sleep

this may be purgatory
I take it as a long coveted
entirely unexpected reverie
the dream of a dream come true
and at the end of
this dream awaits
not an awakening, but …
an abysmal dream
or an elongated -
Silence, perhaps.

Air pockets...
from dream to dream..
"the dream of a dream come true"
dream always dream beyond a dream..and true..
it is elongated silence..
polar whiteness..
words die like fire flies...
wondering when will we all reach that polar area?

Your words always take us beyond the obvious & make the situations more a way they portray our real emotions when we feel those moments ourselves...the words have so much depth & force in them...Wonderful lines!

sometimes i think your vocab is a two-edged sword -- like here, where words start taking the limelight.

i liked the idea ... and i loved the second half much much more...

nitpick (which could well be wrong): should it be "continual" instead of continuing?


aria August 4, 2008 at 3:02 AM  

Kalyan .. thank you for dropping by and your lovely comment.

Asuph.. sometimes I wonder if I like words more or thoughts.. ergo yes it happens.. but I am not sure about continual/continuing .. both 'sound' okay and my grammar is quite pathetic. I'll try taking a third opinion.. if thats continual.. I'll change .. thank you :)

asuph August 4, 2008 at 8:58 AM  

i take back the continual. my grammar isn't fabulous either. definitely take a third opinion. in fact while channel flipping, i heard exactly similar use of continuing. so i guess it's quite okay. in fact now i've doubts about continual.

and yes, you're more in love with the words, while thoughts come naturally to you. you're like a magician who treats magic like goat-herding - with the same nonchalant indifference. sigh!

the wait of my wait to get over is over,
i am happy that i finally am happy,
but something is missing as i sense i miss something,
its the silence which no longer is silent.

too good Aria (Hats Off) !! :)
