English Poetry

I found him in the stark loneliness,
Shying away into the complete darkness..
A long lost friend he was, to my surprise;
At the first glance, I didn’t recognize..

A friend, old enough to be forgotten;
Confused him with a school friend, someone
Too shrivelled to stand on his own,
With baggy eyes and clothes all torn.

With a wry smile, he asked, if I remember..
I shrugged and began to ponder.
Was taken aback by the thought that fluttered,
“You are me!!” I involuntarily uttered.

What was going on, I tried to figure..
“How could I be you and me together?”
Replied, “You are an amorphous, and I am the pure”
“You were me ,but, for good, aren’t me anymore..”

-Vijesh Bhute

    Very beautiful poem
    Liked immensely
    So very true, Yes; but that me
    wants expression, often anonymous
    In spite of all this metamorphosis

      @swathi salin,
      Unusual style of self- reflection. Well handled with a surprise twist at the end.
      ‘too shrivel’ needs correction as ‘too shrivelled’.
      ‘began a thorough ponder’
      could be correctly written as ‘ began to ponder’.
      Hope you don’t mind.
      Kusum
