In memories of you

In memories of you

A Poem by Abhilash Hegde

On a long autumn evening,
I sat by the bench on the hill,
overlooking the vast pacific coast.

the hustling cars gasped for speed
on an unending free-way,
the breaking winds from the far west
swirled me in a whirlwind of unending thoughts,
washing me in memories of you.

I,
fell back inadvertently,
collecting the pieces of you.
only to leave me shaken up,
upsetting the status quo.

Talk to me,
not in a silent whisper,
but in your good old mellifluous tone.
else I may,
disremember those endearing few words
that swiveled me to pursue you.

The little you forget,
I forget you little more.
The steps you walk away from me,
I walk away those million steps many more.

The world may swing around me,
and fade me in memories of you.
Yet, I choose not to 
betray me of myself,
and be all but, human
and, more humane...

Thank you! Glad you enjoyed it Abhi--have great week ahead!
I like this poem. It has a lot of lines but the one that keeps sticking in my mind is "Silent whisper," because it adds so much to what you're saying, what I'm thinking, hearing, the whisper is really silent. Tyfs

and more humane...wow...this is a deep write and so engaging...

i like your use of imagery...the cars gasping for speed...dis remembering----human is all we can really expect to be...and letting go of emotions is quite normal...

nicely done.

Having once been a sailor, I know the power those mighty oceans have to elevate souls and set minds a'wandering. Sometimes, there are answers there.
