Frosty Lover

By Shubhi

A trickle of sound

A streak of light

A single word

Then an ageless night

A haunting silence

And wide-awake eyes

As tears of vehemence

Dropping from the skies

Air, that stands still

Moon, that mourns tonight

Why those stars glimmer so bright

When my cold lover, stays quiet

I shut my eyes with despise

And try to lure the sleep

But it treats me with a strange figure

Who’s sound gives me shivers down the spine

“A soul wanders

Leaving his host behind

Into space and time

As it all rewinds

To dusk or to dawn

Before you know..

It's all gone...”

My shreak, jitters all that there is

Yet nothing could wake my daunting lover

I stare and wait, wait to be curled

And no, he doesn't bother to even hurl

Has sun, forgotten to rise

Does river, no more know the flow

How long ago, has clock last ticked

What is it, the spirit done to you?

“Oh my frosty lover, why thou not behold me?”

“Souls that transcend

Mute shall they be..

As uknown was never known

Who’s known has never been”

  • Very emotional deeply touching poem.Nature and human emotions are beautifully connected.

  • Soul searching question about life beyond life, numbness about loss of beloved, difficulty in acceptance of reality – flow of such emotions ? More so when it comes from a young person ?

    OP Shrivastava
  • The flood of emotions and the agony when you are helplessly at a the brink of no return situation, have been subtly treated and beautifully captured.

  • Lover, leave me a memory
    A gaze distilled with all the secrecy
    Lover, lean against the wall
    I too have a message to cross the veil

  • Wonderful
