Rescued

Rescued

A Story by Jyoti_Ablaze
"

trapped, suicidal, melancholy & coming out of it..

"

Silence surrounding me, is deafening,

Every word has a little less meaning

Now, when it comes out a little too late,

Is it al-right, to give up to fate?

 

Was it just fate that I fell of the cuff?

Or my own deeds were the leash, in my ruffs.

Is it just me or the world has stopped,

And time and again my days are robbed?

 

I feel the body but not the soul,

Is it out somewhere or not at all?

Will I always wait here at the shore,

Or someday sail away in a voyage to soar?

 

I had once dreamt, of riding a saddled horse

On the meadow, taking me wherever it wants,

Or to fly above the clouds like a bird of Jove,

To glide inadvertently and sail through the cove

 

Just when the despair was about to consume me

I felt something shifting and my world tilting

I turned around to fill it in my sight

And saw the bright shimmering, white light

 

It took sometime, for my eyes to adjust,

Air whispering to me of peace and just

Low hums of divinity filling all my senses

Holding me in the trance of warmth and benevolence

 

My soul and body felt revived and alive,

The divine figure bestowed me with her kind vibe.

Happiness filled me, to finally meet the Almighty.

But the arrival may mean to return to my vanity.

 

She held her hand out, for me to take

It was the time; I had a decision to make.

Both the choices seemed equally enigmatic

Anything I’ll choose would result big.

 

Taking death, getting rid of worldly strife

Would mean to disrespect, God’s gift of life

But embracing life would mean the same

Change in the game would just be for name.

 

At that moment, the only thing I sought

Was a piece of advice, more than a nought

I looked expectantly at the divine figure,

Those beaming eyes made a helping gesture.

 

She took my hands and clasped between hers

Then beckoned me to close my eyes in a whisper,

With complete trust I did, as she said

I saw something in the blankness spread.

 

Slowly the shapes and colors came forth

I recognized my parents, walking towards north.

They reached our backyard and halted there,

Appeared emptied of emotion, nothing to share

 

I noticed the void hanging in their eyes,

The heavy air looked gloomy and vice.

Alone my parents walked towards a grave,

Then fell to their knees as if to crave.

 

I wanted to reach out and console them,

Tears ran down my eyes, heart went to them.

I peered at the tombstone and choked abruptly,

Because the name on the grave was mine only

 

I spang opened my eyes, I can’t bear anymore

It is too much to take in, I wanted to roar.

With misty eyes I looked at the almighty,

Her eyes bore into mine with rationality.

 

She saved me from making a big mistake,

Which I would have regretted for life’s sake

Now, I profoundly knew what I had to do:

Choose life with a purpose and start anew.

 

Without delay, I thanked the Almighty there

And ran away straight, to my house somewhere.

I ran as fast as my legs would take,

So many reversals were there to make.

 

By now, the bells had started to chime,

My heart drumming and singing the hymn

It felt like an eternity has passed

When I met and hugged my parents at last.

 

As soon as I saw them, I closed my eyes,

To thank the Almighty for all our lives:

Tears swept my cheeks and spilled down

My heart filled up with enduring sound.

 

Slowly when I, opened my eyes to look,

I found myself on the bed, at the nook

With my soul afresh and blood racing,

I embraced my life as Almighty’s Blessing!

A emotional journey in your words. You took readers to places and thoughts.
"As soon as I saw them, I closed my eyes,
To thank the Almighty for all our lives:
Tears swept my cheeks and spilled down
My heart filled up with enduring sound."
Life teaches us many lessons. Sometime we must read a dead-end to know we had traveled down the wrong path. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

Ohh this is epic. It surely is. I can't even imagine the thought process that took you to create this beautiful jewel. Short of words but will include these lines from your poem to show my appreciation :-
"At that moment, the only thing I sought
Was a piece of advice, more than a nought
I looked expectantly at the divine figure,
Those beaming eyes made a helping gesture"

Ah.. I remember reading this three months ago, and I barely dropped a few words as a review... Sometimes i get lazy...lol.

Okay, now I don't really see anything to change here.
However, some advice about creating poetry, that will accurately mirror some feeling, or state of mind, and will feel authentic to the reader, you only need one thing... Experience. Of course, if that experience is still fresh, you will get a better result. Obviously, nobody can write depressing poetry (or anything else for that matter.) while they are swimming in joy. It is possible, to "fake" it, but anyone reading, and paying attention, will know it, or have that funny feeling, about it.

It's not the case here, as the beginning lines describe the darkness, and the pain living in it, almost perfectly.
Nice work, as always :)

(the review might be new, but the rating will stay the same.) 100 points :)
