Rushing down through the alleys
to the place we had first met,
It’s been years waiting, craving,
But haven’t seen you yet.
No debris would halt my pilgrimage,
no height would tremble my feet,
Not until I have a glimpse of you, yet I fleet
and find myself captivated in a bewitching Bondage.
I make my way through the ledge
And woods so brown,
Despite the weather chill, incompetent bridges,
I pursue further and don’t make a frown.
I try to reminisce the passage,
go as far as I could remember
the breeze seems to be giving me a message,
to cease, ramble and surrender.
Our antecedent convergence wasn’t a graceful one,
She advanced to a barn for some mysterious errands,
in hope to see her again, I’m worn
when I ultimately reached the highlands.
I gaze at the barn with some subtle fascination,
timid of her appearance
the graveled driveway captivated my unstable attention,
And deceived my mind to a better stance.
A million thoughts in my mind prevail,
a million more to say,
See her before the sun sets, I pray
see her before I become frail.
Sun begins to descend, sky begins to drizzle,
Chirping of whitish birds waned
fate ostensibly getting less reliable,
as nothing to be blamed.
Hours passed, zeal seems to falter,
I convince my mind to refrain my hunt
my courage seems to be losing rafter
after I made an attempt so blunt.
I advance to a plateau in vicinity,
Overwhelmed by dismay,
an abrupt breeze brings me in amenity
and I’m left with nothing to say.
Her essence was almost palpable,
capable enough to shallow my breath
with an unexpected grind, I’m again viable,
abandoning my tread, and resemble a sloth.
With no contemplation, I gaze ahead,
serendipitously, she seems to advance
wearing a lustrous half and wings spread,
makes me adamant with my peculiar glance.
She apparently looks at me,
No sign of astonishment appeared
When our emotions failed to agree,
Would she recognize me? I wondered.
Her adorable looks leaves me dazzled,
Scenting the aura that surrounds,
Like a rejuvenated bird, I wobbled,
Out of elation, I may lose my grounds.
Her glistening eyes are so mesmerizing,
Worthy of relentless praise,
Agitation feels to be arising,
Seeing her elegant hair, I wish to embrace.
My heart begins to pound,
As she comes closer,
I wave a hello, regardless of how it may sound
and her reaction enthralls me with seizure
With due affirmation, she smiles in response.
Curious to know her name, I inquire with a sigh
Malika, she answers in elance
Pause for a moment and then just pass by
Nothing else I could say
Nothing else I could do as well
Reckoning a thousand ways to make her stay
her presence elates my profoundly, I dwell
brusque, our meeting might have been
although my adoration was ardent and keen
she wasn’t less than a lovely dream
now let me end up with this, before you scream😛
Ps:- well, this is one of the best gifts I ever got, as someone’s inspiration for his first poem ever. I got this present in july, 2015( I remember vividly) and I still can’t believe that I’m the one described in the paragraphs above. This poem made me feel that maybe I’m special too. I don’t even know what to say.
Anyway, whoever has managed to reach till here and is reading this right now, please let me know what do you think about it?? I’d be glad to know.
