This morning, while I was browsing through some old files and folders, I came across this piece of poetry. As I went through reading it, I realized how time flies by. It was way back in 2005 when I worte this.(While attending an extra class in Organic Chemistry). It was my first poem and completing it gave me a sense of immense satisfaction. Inspite of the fact that, now I realize how immature and childish I was, both with my writings and feelings in general, I also could see myself growing through all this time. But then, who cares! I am happy that I attempted to bring out the poetry within me howsoever crude and raw it might be. At the end of the day, this is what makes me happy. Even though, the content within is now redundant, but then just like you do not ever forget the first love of your life, I hold this first poem of mine pretty close. And here after 6 years, I felt like sharing the same.
I still wonder how it all happened
It was all so quick and fast
I being so uncertain about life
And even more about love.
Girls I felt were selfish and mean
Life to me was just to enjoy
There was so many in my life
Yet I seldom had a shoulder to cry.
I could party but not share
I could laugh but not cry
I could dance and sing
But still it was all alone.
Then came a day, a moment
The tide of my thoughts simply changed the direction
Suddenly I felt someone so close to me
Someone so pure so serene so caring.
It was strange for me
Not because I respected her
Not because I was drawn towards her enigmatic beauty
But because I now loved her.
Her voice were the soft petals of a flower
So lovely so charming
Her innocence was what I loved the most
Coz there in laid her beauty.
Dreams- I felt it were
Fantasy –I thought I was in
But soon I realized
It was time to get mesmerized.
Those I believed were real; Inspite of
Emotions and feelings so close to being surreal
It was all about the blind trust
For, she was the one made for me.
I am no more what I was
A changed man is what I am
And suddenly, it occurred,
I too have a life to live now.
I may grow old with her
And live life not just for me
But, for someone special
A life for my life...
