Broken Ties


Seas of bottomless blames separates us now,
Words of intimacy sinks without effort,
The unbridged waters keep us apart,
And we glance without a tinge of love.

The towering anxiety hurls my thoughts,
Abrupt hues of blue fill my color pots,
I shall paint your face with my purest hands,
But seldom shall it turn into a masterpiece.

When each ship keeps moving into the port,
I look for your eventual answer,
Often I am left behind with a noisy group
Passing by, and my hands left unheld.

  1. it's such a bittersweet poem, so familiar. I love the second verse.. and I also like the way it's written, how you make sentences.. and how you say that your hand isn't being held..

  2. Remarkable description of love leaving , love "I shall paint your face with my purest hands, but seldom shall it turn into a masterpiece."

  3. "And my hands left unheld" says it all! Some 'masterpieces' are only in the mind and heart.

  4. nice wrap around on the hands....i like the painting of the face...and that last stanza holds the emotion for me....the desire to hear from them and feeling left behind the crowd....
