Long Secluded Alley

Posted May 18, 2019 from United Arab Emirates

 

Me and My Long-Secluded Alley

Lazy and lethargic I walked down the secluded alley,

Free from traffic and unburdened of noise,

Slowly and softly along with my brainwaves,

I caught my gaze at colourful yet secluded villas,

They seemed to like me and I like them but with a difference,

They were colorful, yet alone,

They were alone, but not empty,

However, mine was a different scenario,

I am alone as well empty.

I am empty but not colourful.

The semblance was that we both stood alone along the alley,

Alone, far-off and noise free, as if suffocating within,

Ah! Deep I sighed and wished to be profound,

Cozy and warm like the inside of these secluded villas,

Nay! I felt that is not my fate to be gratified and convivial,

Rather, I was like a protracted isolated alley,

Infinite and serpentine in nature,

Deep I sighed and boarded the bus with a heavy heart & forlorn.

The message you send is clear in your poem.
I like the imagery part of it, where I pause and envision the pictures. You made my morning great.
Thanks for sharing.

Dearest Sister,

Thank you so much for your kind words. I am overwhelmed by your response. I am not a poet but sometimes when I feel bogged down, I jot down my thoughts and emotions.

Regards,
Sumera

Dear Sumera,
I smiled as I read, as I recognized the heart of a poet yearning to write from a deeper part of yourself - and so you did. It is only through letting ourselves feel and stay outside of the edges of what we know, and yearn to grow deeper, that we find our poetic selves. I look forward to more from you.
In sisterhood,
Tam
