Romantic apprehension on selection

Romantic apprehension on selection

A Poem by M P Ramesh

On seeing the door closed,
there surface,about the insiders,
many notions and stands.


But,
how could she know?
there awaits,
behind the door,the timeless fathomless ocean
with love straits, unforeseen treasures.


She might have reserved ears
for a mere call
to pull apart the door.
But,
how a mute ocean call whistle?

Unless the hive of silence
dismantles on its own
a decision may live unborn.


But even if ship wrecks
and no rudder left,
got degenerated in to nothing
at least the rhymes of my cells
will attain her shore
struggling against
the cold, depth and the waves

Riveting poem. You've creatively stimulated the portrait of an ocean behind the door.i think you probably tried to struggle through waves to reach "her"..
"behind the door,the timeless fathomless ocean
with love straits, unforeseen treasures."

Excellent poetry!

Beautiful poem! My favourite lines were:
"Unless the hive of silence
dismantles on its own
a decision may live unborn."

Smartly expressed piece. The metaphor beautifully consistent. Second to last stanza resonates and 'the rhymes of my cells' poetic! I enjoyed this. Regards Ray xo

Beautiful, gracious and sublime! The depth of thought is titillating, the sentiment in backdrop screams out aloud and the framing of thoughts in words is soul-touching.

To be frank, i became nostalgic. I remembered the moment when the smart Alec in me fooled me into thinking that going up to that person for whom your heart has started beating, is an easy thing. Oh! God! My nerves had never betrayed me in such spectacularly embarrassing fashion! That trembling of the feet, that twitching of the fingers, that lump of tension stuck in your throat... uff! Love is a wicked tormentor!

Unfortunately, when 'the rhymes of my cells attained her shore', she was cruel enough to mercilessly kick them back into the ocean 'to struggle against the cold, depth and the waves'

Sorry for being comical in reviewing such a soul-touching poem, but i believe when a piece of writing transcends the book/screen to send the reader back into some forgotten journeys of his life, that work acquires an added significance.

Nevertheless, thumbs up to you sir. Brilliant!!

(I don't believe in ratings and points. So, i excuse myself from those things)
