A Droplet

There are zillions of sparkling dots in the mighty sky,

Blinking at me, Reminding me of hopes and dreams floating in the immortal minds of mortal beings

But you,You are meant to clutch the star of your dream,

Blow at it and let the world view the enormity of the universe,

compelling them look in, see their reflections against that star,

Awaken their inner voices, the voice that makes the choice,

Choice that redeems the value of free will, a life which existence bestowed upon us,

Your feet have left the pavement on which I stood taking in your view,

You passed by a couple of times, strings that strummed each time I saw you,

Your eyes, your smile, Your laughter, Your light touch,

Each time you let me peek into that brilliant mind,

Beautiful soul, Basked in your savage yet soft sultry aura,

I try to learn the language of your book still, alas I have been too slow,

You are taking off, Not an ounce of inkling you have of my heart’s humming on you,

But its better that way, you are meant to traverse an all encompassing world, a simpleton I am with a zillion dreams,

And this simpleton will not drive you away, will not let her ruptured poise fall in your line of sight,

Yet I wish to give you moments to remember me by,

Before you fly, my heart craves for a final touch, my soul for a final view,

I wish to fill your lips with mine, let you inside lightly, to savour those lips and remember my scent,

I know you belong to yourself, I refuse to claim a being as brazenly free as you,

But I, this droplet amidst the drizzle you walk through desires to capture your reflection,

And trickle to a forsaken space in your soul and be absorbed at the spot.

  1. You’re anything but a simpleton. Nice poem, though it’s a little sad in that it seems you’re giving up.


  2. Crumbs from the table do not make an adequate meal but the unrestrained generosity in this piece makes it an emotional feast. An excellent work.
