A letter with no words

What can I give you more
But a letter with no words
a blank sheet of memories!

I thought of infusing the page with some notes
some notes of music
that my heart cries
But what can I give you more
but a silence of my sound!

I thought of enclosing some moonlight on it
some shy reflection of my dreams
that I once dreamt with you
But what can I give you now
but a darkness of miseries

I thought of giving you a fresh page
with newly gathered hopes
that I endeavoured to have without you
But what can I give you now
but a crumbled folio with creases of agonies

What can I give you more
But a letter with no words
a wasted sheet of memories!

  3. Some feelings don't need words. Some cannot be expressed verbally.

    1. Indeed. Some feelings can never be expressed through structured language, which brings more agitations to the soul!

    1. Thanks a lot Prakash for being here :)
      Some memories, some pain needs a passage to get out of the chamber of heart. But words betray those pains and feelings to get expressed

    2. I had thought this was a fiction.

      Since the day I have started writing, Whenever I feel low, I sit to write. That is the best way to overcome them (atleast, that i feel so).

      And yes, I know. I understand. Words, that say and come out as words, are actually and might be a lot different ones as seen by the writer! The interpretations! They differ.

    3. Interpretation makes everything more beautiful. I always seek personal interpretation rather than meanings defined by some on a platter.

      I also feel the same when it come to writing, Prakash. It is a dose to uplift the emotional lows and troughs. Thanks for writing back :)

    1. Thanks Shraddha :) It has been indeed a long time since you visited here. The poem that you have written recently has such similar sentiment that I could not help but point you to this piece. The "but" is a pathway to the silence of unsaid words.
