Where are you?

By Neha Khanna

I saw you standing over there,

As I just turned around,

but then I saw none,

And heard no sound

 

I saw a stranger at your place,

The rock if you ask me

To describe the state

 

Promised to never lose me,

And you yourself got lost,

What a strange scenario it is,

I tried my best to search you within the frost

 

Got to tell you so many things,

Got to know from you

That why a stranger holding your place,

Where are you?

 

Distances broadened,

Communication narrowed,

But I lost the gem,

The pain I swallowed

 

Is it too far where you went?

Can’t you come just for a while?

I will not let you go again, I will

Not let that smile to fade

 

Light years away are you?

Or the stars are your curtains?

Never knew I felt so strong

About you, where are you?

 

Accusations,allegations,mistrust,

Hopelessness,

These are the words I use for the stranger,

The stranger is frozen from inside,

Not at all like you,

Why you made him to act like you?

 

Come out with your sword,

And with a knot.

To cut the loose ends,

To tighten the knot

 

But all this can happen

If its you,

Even though I don’t know,

Where are you?

  • very nicely written.

  • I got transfixed reading your poem. Reader could relate easily as you have used simple rhyming verses.
