As I Walk On..

As I Walk On..

A Poem by Arabdha

  Every sound fades to silence...
  life fading into voiceless stupor..
  all that remains are the memories of a day spent...
  and the silence that resonates within..
  the world seems at peace as the darkness takes over..

 But that can't put to rest the voice in my head
 that continues to ponder...
 where I was,am and would be..
 none but the one who made it all knows..
 my purpose i can't discern..
                         
 As I wander along the untreaded roads..
 the world changes with the ticking seconds..
 colors merging into the blankness of canvas..
 transience taking over the fixed present..
 and as I move on..
 things change as if they never were...
 colorful hues bringing into life a new creation..
 as I walk on..

Absolutely love the power and the tenderness of this write Arabdha. The imagery was colorful and crystal clear. Change is not always easy, in fact may times it is excruciatingly difficult...but so very often, change is necessary for the completeness of our souls and our being. I must admit I read this a few times for no other reason then it felt and sounded good flowing from my mouth. I love when poetry makes me feel that way. Very heartfelt and honest. Beautifully written.

I think that many of us has taken this walk, my friend...lost and lonely save the voice in our head. Sublime sentiment, though bittersweet and starkly poignant. I enjoyed the concept quite alot and the wording was also nicely done. You show emotional honesty here, and that is beautiful in and of itself.

My only suggestion would be on your punctuation...the elispses used at the end of every line throws off the flow a little, as they are meant to make the reader pause before moving on. Perhaps, you could use them in a different way:

Every sound fades to silence -
life fading into voiceless stupor,
all that remains are the memories of a day spent
and the silence that resonates within -
the world seems at peace as the darkness takes over...

Only a suggestion, of course; taking nothing away from your words, which were beautiful and honest.

And you need eyes of understanding and wisdom to see that ! So thank you for reading :-)
Seems your route alters from the start of the poem to the ending .. like an exploration. And the whole is like reading the echoes of something distinct yet, wonder at softeness and fragility, the need for peace and beauty in spite of all clutter of life. You see, you feel, and, its wonderful and so is this poem!!

You have taken words and painted a heartfelt portrait. One thing that is a constant in this world is change. You show this show exquisitely with the vivid imagery imparted!
I enjoyed this throughout, especially the ending stanza, which shows hope for new beginnings! ~ :-)
