Perhaps Tonight, We Shall Meet

In my sorrow-laden eyes
The pale moonlight gently streams.
Although in darkness my lost soul cries
But perhaps tonight, we shall meet in my dreams.

This melancholic moment seems depressingly wild,
As voices in my head scream amidst the dark.
Frozen, I stand alone like a lost child
While nightmares carelessly bleed inside my heart.

I wish… my unspoken desires I could convey
When you were the fragrance of my rhyme.
Sadly things weren’t destined to blossom this way
Because like seasons, people too change with time.

We’re not seraphs gliding on a plutonium plane,
You’re not god nor am l a blessing from the sky.
We’re humans, who fail to value each other the same
& our endless lakes of solitude makes me cry.

Tears of blood, stream down my face
As on your path, I frivolously let you go.
Dancing in your oblivion my memories you’ll replace
But about my feelings perhaps you’ll never know.

We’ll be worthy of each other in some other world
As the distance between us is wider than it seems.
That’s a hope that my mind has impearled
But perhaps tonight, we shall meet in my dreams.


Note: “If you love someone, set them free. If they come back they’re yours; if they don’t they never were…”. 2019 was a pretty depressing year for me on the emotional front & what was even more depressing was the fact that some of the people whom I thought were close to me… decided to abandon me at the various traumatic turns of life. Some may think I’m an attention-seeking narcissist, but honestly, I’m the kind of person whom the people easily replace with other stuff. Regardless of the outcome of our bond, the memories that we shared were sweet & I carry them in my heart. Perhaps our paths may converge in this journey called life but till then hopefully, I’ll be worthy enough to meet in my most beautiful dreams. Happy New Year in advance to everyone! πŸ™‚Β Β

  3. As 2019 is ending, it feels strangely fitting for me to come across this poem of yours. It’s beautiful and haunting and reminds me of something I only managed to completely let go of recently, after a long internal struggle. Amazing work.

      1. Yes that’s understandable but as Rumi once said, the wound is the place from where light enters you.

        Always hope for the best Sonali, rather than be a prisoner of the painful past… For every passing moment promises a beautiful blessing in itself. ❀️ Thanks for following me on insta. πŸ™

  4. This is beautifully written Sidharth about the sadness and pain that often comes with love. So sorry this has been a difficult year for your sweet heart. I also know what it feels like when friends seem to disappear during lonely times. They were not real friends to start with my friend. Lovely poem about the struggles of love. Still don’t have that account set up will let you know. Love and hugs Joni πŸ’•πŸ’• Blessings to you Sidharth
