An Ethereal Spirit

One night I heard a knock at my door
Who could it be I wasn’t so sure.
I opened the door and was filled with glee
The visitors ahead were no strangers to me.

I welcomed the guests with a fake smile
For I knew- might not I get any respite.
An air of suspicion crammed the space
My home was now a mysterious place.

Have you any clue who these visitors were?
My long lost desires- all who refused to blur
Travelled they long- from dawn to dusk
At last were here to brush off my mind laden with dust

Some desires filled me with great zest
For I knew they may soon manifest.
Some were buried deep in my heart
Since I nipped them in bud with a feeble dart.

For some desires I had, my heart still repents
Why I had them ever, I forever lament.
Some had grown in layers manifold
They cry in silence while I suffer and behold.

Died the few- their painful death
Left were only the memories and wreckage.
Some bygone desires resurfaced and floated in the heart
I smiled morbidly as I knew they soon will depart

Ready To Depart When they were,night turned into ethreal hours
I wrapped them in celstial coffin,on top of that sprinkled some flowers
Again they promised to visit my heart,when i refused to make them my integral part
In vain they pleaded on their knees,but it was time for them to rest in graveyard.

p.s. i am highly thankful to preety(tweenu) for designing this beautiful template for my blog,though it is still under construction,but i know she will modify n make it exactly as i want it to be :) Love ya tweeny :)

Wonderful! I can connect to this entirely. So many desires that have died a painful death. So many wishes that may never come true. So many destinations I never might seek. Every word of this poem goes deep down and touches the soul. I am sure many of us will be able to connect to these words. I guess I am going to sit and replay life in retrospective, dig all of my dreams, aspirations and see if I can do any service to them.

heavealie said...

i think you are fascinated with the dark side!!how the desires influences the mind as well as the heart was very well used in this piece of poetry!!darkness was required and darkness was felt!!i liked the ending where you buried your desires!!ohh i thought the ending would be 'rest in peace' it was like really the word which was hitting the nail on the head!!i would like to know that why the usage of the word graveyard!!i know you would have thought of peace but then why graveyard!!well written and keep writing!!!
