Prelude to a Start


Limn a smile upon my face

Catch my breath as I run your pace

Suddenly cold, cursory distant

Mordant at a blink’s instant

Effacing the ideologies past

Not even charm exculpates doubts cast

Unaware of your thoughts, nescient of your heart

All this ballyhoo – just ‘coz of a fresh start

Side Note: This is poem #4 in a series of poems that I wrote in 2006 – a year that left me broken so I could recreate myself. Retrospect helps me appreciate how great love and life can be; how each heartbreak is just as important as each triumph.


Help me find my way.
