LEAVES OF THE FALL


                                         
                                
                                  Sitting on the bench, you are alone and cold.
                                  You feel weak inside, but you are acting bold.
                                  And I forgot to give you your prettiest shawl.
                                  Still, you ask, why leaves fall in the fall.

                                  You wanted me to hear your untold stories.
                                  A fool I was, looking for instant glories.
                                   I can't remember, what I was trying to recall.
                                  Still, you ask, why leaves fall in the fall.

                                   Every time you see me, I Smile my best.
                                   You don't say much but silently protest.
                                   And, I leave you alone to dance in the hall.
                                   Still, you ask, why leaves fall in the fall.

                                   The gloomy fog between us never clears.
                                   Should we 'accept' after all these years?
                                   Perhaps, We never knew each other at all.
                                   Still, you ask, why leaves fall in the fall.

                                    Big words of mine will shatter on the ground.
                                    Once I am gone, you will never see me around.
                                    For every tormented soul, trapped in the wall.
                                    Slowly, Gracefully, Leaves will fall in the fall.

    1. we can sit and think about the different directions we would have taken and different things our life would have been, but in the end there is only one direction, one destiny and one life...

      Thank you Bikram...

  3. A beautiful poem and picture dear Kunal, such a shame that we fail to communicate our feelings to one another, if we did the fog would clear.
    xoxoxo ♡

    1. Thank You Dianne...I think..even the failure to communicate is with a reason and the fog also serves a purpose...It tests out strength and the willingness to say our true feeling.

  9. Except for the last stanza I said...awwww when I finished reading the last lines of each stanza. There is something poetic about the last line...

    These lines are exceptionally beautiful:

    "Big words of mine will shatter on the ground.
    Once I am gone, you will never see me around.
    For every tormented soul, trapped in the wall.
    Slowly, Gracefully, Leaves will fall in the fall."

    1. Thank You TUIB. :-)

      Yes, I would imagine it is spring time there indeed. But, where I am, winter is at its peak...or rather...when I wrote this..winter was freezing my bones...its getting better now...and I admit I wrote the post few months too late. :D

      Welcome here. :-)

  20. Ohh, how did I miss this one? :( I'm so glad that you directed me towards it because it's definitely a 'do no miss' read! I've read it at least three times now :D

    No disrespect to any of the other commentators here, but this one is worthy of a WoW! I loved it ~ every single line. The last verse and line is brilliant. The poem is sad, beautiful, profound, creative, unique and the picture is perfect!

    Did I mention that I love i ... oh yes, I did ... I will refrain from being redundant :P I hope you never tire of me saying how much I love your poetry ... thank you, Kunal {|:-)


    "Every time you see me, I Smile my best
    You don't say much but silently protest."

    P.S. ~ Awesome :-)

      I just hope..I never disappoint you...I am beginning to feel that the poetic juices are running a bit low..and hence I have to dig deeper in to my reserves...but I am trying my best. :-)

      Thank You Again.

  21. I'm back to share something with you that you may have missed :-) I think it was posted last year when you were on a mini-break from Blogger. Many of my regular readers missed it due to school, etc. Hope you enjoy when you have some free time ~ it's quite lengthy. Oh, why doesn't that surprise you? :D
