A Voiceless Scribe

A few pages of unanchored memories,  A few crushed petals of life,  An unfeigned friend’s gift of love,  Leaves of reminiscences on the earth!   A  life unabridged on tattered pages,  In ink, with a delicate hand, A long journey - of bliss, and woe,  Precious times with beloved souls.  Nights beside the lonely flicker of a lantern , Unworldly feelings of a damsel, pouring heart,  Visioned life as surreal, and flawless,  Her love as unreal armoured knight.   The pages remained silent as a noiseless night,  Life went on like a meandering stream,  Feelings unsaid, promises hushed,  The voiceless scribe remained unvoiced. Written on June 25, 2020 For An Old Scribe Contest
