Within the depths of my vacant soul

When she walked by my side on a lonely road
And took me to the other side, much more verdant,
Through the barren lands of scorched desert,

Clueless I was about the paradigm of love.

If only had I asked, she would’ve taken me there
Into the sunshine from darkened shadows,
From the juncture of fears and saddened tears.

But I remained silent when it was time to speak
Choosing to not tell her how much I loved her
As I held the distance between bliss and sorrow,
When impulsively I veered in the wrong direction.

And I never saw the pastures beyond the hills 
Or beauty of the terrain past the river bend.

Going where feckless ages have gone before
Embarking upon a path well-traveled
Ignoring pretty flowers in unkempt meadows.

Yet, she came to rescue at the edge of my angst
From caveats of today, cautions of tomorrow,
Standing with me in the midst of winter-storm
Promising spring flowers in colors of fall.

I saw the blossoms that were about to bloom
And blush on horizon hinting of the rising sun

And I heard the tempo of a concert on piano,

While roiled in turmoil of the unsaid, the unwritten,
Hidden within the depths of my vacant soul;

Incapable of voicing what the silence evoked.

    This certainly deserves a WOW Vijay! My favorite lines "And I never saw the pastures beyond the hills Or beauty of the terrain past the river bend." Imagery in this piece is just divine and your poem left me feeling inspired! I loved this amazing poem Vijay, and I am putting it into my Faves! : ) xxoo

    As you turned, somehow, I could feel it, abruptly, and then the disheartened journey afterwards... The circle of life seems to be giving you a second chance ~ a challenging crossroads considering your new vantage point. I love the slow and deliberate cadence of this... adds so much to its beauty <3

    Wow. A clever write on a subject that can have many interpretations. I see a number One plus placement. Great poem.

    Could we have the choice. maybe, the awareness. the courage. to walk paths that at a time seemed dark and mysterious! Should we follow the steps of an intuitive heart. or give in to a mighty mind! Would we uncage a soul craving for a free Be! Or just remain "roiled in turmoil of the unsaid, the unwritten"! So rich is your poem with the complexities and sometimes unfathomable human nature! When things go beyond explanation. the hand of destiny is working! A great work, dear Vijay! A FAV! Regards.
