An Empty Mind

The water tinkled down
My memory lane
Sweet was the sound of pain
As I gently remembered her face
Moving along the rim
The angel softly touched 
My heart strings one by one
As emotions danced their 
Rawness away, glowing
In the afterthought of achievement
Weak fountains sprung thru the sinews
Awakening the darkening desires
The flowers sighed and fell
Before her teary grave
As passion held in its arms
An empty mind, an empty body
By Tahera Mannan

    This is very beautiful and telling. I liked the last line "an empty mind, an empty body. That's exactly what I saw. Hard to comprehend. Thanks for your comments on "My Garage."
