Bitter Sweet

to the sweetness in the bitterness of life

(This poem is posted at 12.00 a.m. midnight as the new year is born (January 01.01.2008) Indian Standard Time

The bitterness
In this sweet sour relationship
Flows unhindered
As tormented waves in succession
Invisible to you that see
For I smile with you
Through my brimming tears

The sweetness
In this make believe companionship
Reeks unchecked
As smoothened out creases
Visible in that you see
My pain in the happiness
Through my infectious smile

Yes, we bear the burden
Of this mighty togetherness
Merrily through the sands of time
Hatred spanning few inconsistencies
For bitterness and sweetness
Intermix in the subdued conscience
Forgiveness smiles
- The power of love reigning

Reigning past the year that was spent
To the new year that blossoms
In the sweetness of our love that flowers
