Box Of Memories- Poem

Published January 26, 2017 by tapasmi

He tucked his child in bed to sleep

In the still of the silent night

He yawned, but he had work to do

Office chores by the night lamp’s light

When from the corner of his weary eyes

A stowed away box he spied

He inched his way towards it

Swept decades of dust off its side

In mild curiosity it was opened

And these were the box’s contains:

Picture albums in black and white

Snippets of past, childhood’s remains.

The 40 year old gazed at himself

Locked in mother’s embrace

Twelve years old, young, carefree

Now a tear rolled down his face

He turn the page and stared

His heart heavier as he went on

The days with his own family

Those beautiful days were gone.

He close his eyes; before him flashed

The day which held the most regret

At 19, he had left his parents

Whom he had sworn to forget.

From a distance came a voice

“Daddy?” he heard his princess say

He yearned she’d never leave her papa

Like he abandoned his one day.

“I’m coming my love,” he smiled

Giving her soft hand a little squeeze

The lights came off and he slept,

Remembering that box of memories.

The House

Published May 14, 2014 by tapasmi

I used to be a strong bricked house
With families laughing inside
A fireplace once flamed before
And happiness didn’t hide.
But the grave story that occurred
And the master living in died
And tears and coughs filled the floor
Swept over like a tide
The mother cried and wept
The children screamed and flailed
Until it became to much to bare
And to oblivion they had sailed.
Then the orange heart of fire
That once gleamed the chimney down
Never glowed ever again
Just soot remained with a frown.
The flower-patterned curtains
That once had been drawn
Now had fell with neglect
All happiness had gone.
The door which had once
Greeted eager friends and guests
Now was closed for eternity
Creaking with blackened crests.
The planked floor that once had shone
Was now layered with grime and hurt
No love penetrated any of the thick
And unvanishing, evil dirt.
So the family had left me!
I was left all alone!
I was now just the ignored servant
No longer the house of the throne.
At first the sorrow came to me
But then the bitter thoughts in me
Flashed by the ceiling that be my mind
How to please a lovely family
Would be so hard to find.
WAS…IT…MY…FAULT…
THAT…DEATH…HAD…OVERCOME?
THAT GOD’S SPITE HAD KILLED MY MASTER
THAT I HAD TO WEEP AND REMAIN GLUM?
I BEG YOU LORD! BRING ME BACK >em<
THOSE DAY LOVE AND CARE

OF FLAMING CANDLELIGHT ON THE TABLE

INSTEAD OF CUPBOARDS BARE?
<
MUST I SUFFER ALL THIS PAIN?
<
CAN YOU NOT PLEASE REFRAIN?
</
DONT MAKE ME MAD, OH, GOD!>
Em
DONT MAKE ME GO INSANE!
Let humans live inside me
Let one water the flowers on

The ivy and the dying trees
<
clasping against the lawn!
Now that you have decided
To not return my family dear
I shall change…. I will cause no happiness
Just DREAD AND SPITE AND FEAR!
I STAND ALONE! I DEFEND MYSELF!
NO MORE MEMORIES
DIG FOR AND TO DELVE!
I NOW TAKE MY SAD REVENGE
AND GHOSTS SHALL NOW LIVE IN
THE SORRY BROKEN TILES OF ME
I DONT BELIEVE IT A SIN!
THEY FEED OF THE GLOOM AND
THEY FEED OF MY DREAD!
BUT THAT IS ALL THAT IS LEFT FOR
MY SPIRIT IS DEAD.
I now live for ever all alone
The sun rays signs of doom
I know for fact that flowers
In the gardens wont ever bloom.
Oh I give up! It is the last straw!
I throw my hand up in the air.
I am closing, dying at my will
DYING IN DESPAIR.

 

 

 

 

Summer Has Taken Leave….

Published July 25, 2013 by tapasmi

Summer Has Taken Leave....

The beautiful, hot, and sunny summer has been replaced by a truly beautiful monsoon in India. Even though the summers here are too hot for some people’s liking, they have their own kind of charm. I got inspired by re-reading Charlotte’s Web, an old classic, to write about the summer taking leave.

The summer has taken leave
The sad truth we have to heave
Watching the birds snuggle and nest
Not a minute to take rest
The flower dancing in joy and class
Bugs and beetles peeking through grass
There’s happiness everywhere
AND SUDDENLY- it isn’t there
The summer has taken leave
The sad truth we have to heave
Chirrup, chirrup, chirrup, we crickets sing.
*
It has left the maples red
The sunshine-eaters quite unfed
Gloom has settled in every nook
Our summer happiness summer has took
We begged her to return for a prize
The cheeky reply- wait for me to arise
She’ll not come, perhaps, now
But summer wished in this way, that’s how
The summer has taken leave
The sad truth we have to heave
Chirrup, chirrup, chirrup we crickets sing
*
Chirrr—-Chirrup—Chirr—-Chirrup
We crickets sing…….
