Silence

Poem By Santhosh Vijayakumar

Quarrels rose like waves,
Between a dearly couple.
Words after words spilt,
From a boneless tongue,
Even after complete knowledge,
That, words can’t be taken back.

She only had time to curse,
And grumble on her problems,
Where he took every opportunity to fault her.
Worried disturbed and confused,
They remained in silence,
From dawn to dusk.

They uttered not a word.
In that silence, there came a change,
And they spoke,
Not with words, but tears.
They quarreled no more,
For silence had taught them the truth.

Marriage & Love

Love spoke to marriage,
“It is I who come first.”
For which marriage replied,
“It is for me you come.”

Woman

Woman she is, great woman she is.
Mistress of young,
Companion of middle-aged,
And nurses of old.

Flowing

Then, there I was, sitting,
By the banks of a river,
With my feet in flowing water,
And my mind in deep thoughts.

I Will Always Love You

Tell me,
How do I live,
If it was time to say goodbye?
I can feel a kiss from the rose.

All Of Heart

Today a son, tomorrow a father,
And a day after, a grand old man.
Is it only by blood?
No, it shall never be.

Baseless Feelings

Blind with anger,
He drew his dagger.
Full of bloody eager,
To turn so meager.
