That’s not the age to be in love!

Moving like lost ship in the ocean

Moving like lost ship in the ocean

You appear in memories
And I cry again
The age in which love crossed our hearts
Murmured the dragon called society
That’s not the age to be in love!
You didn’t protest
Nor I came to chain the dragon
And as it breathed fire
Our dreams got burnt
Time changed its cover
And arrived the age to love
Prevailed now the glorious illusion
Called glories of the skin
By which hanged the misery
In form of earthly fame.

Around me moved sea of people
Competing with chameleon
Burning in the flame of fame
Filling the episodes of life
With strange amalgam of black and white.

I searched for you in these new shades
Even in the isolation filling these shades
And I realized you were now a gentle breeze
Flowing in some unknown distant land
With you love remained like love
With all its mysteries and foggy depth.

When you changed I realized
That world does change
Sometimes to beat the time
Sometimes to be beaten by the time
I too tried to change my skin
Punctured the self within
To let it imbibe the law of change
Yet it remained the ancient self
Those who changed now wear some crown
And I the unchanged
Moving like lost ship in the ocean.

  1. Thanks Cynthia for liking the poem….

  2. Thanks Dharmendra Sharmaji, United Arab Emirates, ..I hope you found the poem appealing..You know as a writer writing poem and short story is a most satisfying gesture…The only problem is that you cannot write them voluntarily in a willful way…That’s why I write only when I am in certain mood..After a long time a poem came to manifest inside me and found its expression in form of words.. Thanks for reading..

  3. Thanks Lalita Jhaji, New Delhi,..I treat myself more as a writer trapped in world of journalism ..I began my writing journey as contributor for leading anthologies. Also wrote short stories. Later involvement in news and views took its toll.. I hope you enjoyed reading it..

  4. Thanks Pankaj Bhoolaji, United States, for reading the poem. ..
