WITHOUT U

Written by: DEBASISH MISHRA

Like a poem without the poetic touch
Like a novel without a story as such...
Like a dish deprived of salt,I guess...
Such is the state of my distress !

Like a book without a single page...
Like a wrestler without an ounce of rage;
Like a song bereft of words any...
Such is the effect of your absence in me...!

Like a boat in water without a rudder;
Like a motivated mob without a leader:
Like the pen of a poet sans any ink...
This is how I suffer & think....
Why was I so careless about U?
Not knowing how I would live without U!

My heartbeats utter your name quietly...
& my eyes burn in your memories brightly...
As if my moments spent with you...
Descend to my heart like morning dew!

The painful absence hurts within...
As though I had perpetrated a ghastly sin...
Why did I ever doubt U?
Not knowing how I would live without U...!
