The sky is yours ,
So is the wind.
On all those treaded paths where
Uniqueness recycles ,
A very common man awaits you.
Who never let the icicles melt,
never let the chimes to stop humming
And never robbed words from his pen
For you made him grow .

Scars were all I got .
But did you ever notice a tinge of red?

Today don't let those wounds heal ,
Because at my funeral , in your presence
I will dip the white roses with blood.
If for once you accept ...

...The Eucalyptus will convey my glee.
The roots reach where I lie , deep within
Where you couldn't ,ever.

and from there it will whisper ,

Would you ?

Careful with those fragile leaves dear,
Its always been winter.

I cannot express truly what i feel here. I read this, re read this. Touched my screen, for the feelings you poured out here, touched me!

I am, very very strangely, for me, at a loss as to how to articulate how much this means to me. I shall let Sash's comment speak, for the moment.

The roots reach where I lie , deep within
Where you couldn't ,ever.

Goosebumps here. And the awesome closing lines.

I do not want to drop a word more, and break the pool of magic here, into ripples; I shall simply soak in the vulnerable feeling I have, right now.

Thank you Soumya. I know why I did not read this till now. And I am glad I did, finally!!

Delightful poetry, albeit complicated... Takes time, and I believe a bit of understanding of who you are to fathom the emotion in your lines.

Time, the great means to every end, shall lend me the wings I need to soar through your work.

Nevertheless, this poem made me think:

"Tread softly, for you tread on my dreams..."
