Once again, for the last time

Another moment
Another time
His boundary
Is just a line

Another meeting
Another glance
She said
It was romance

Another instant
Another journey
They set off
On a new discovery

Wow, you write so well.I've been trying to catch up with your entire blog for some time now.Each one of your posts, there is some thing I can identify with.It makes sense at some level.
Its amazing how you manage to write,some that seems quite personal and yet has such universal appeal.
Well will be looking out for more.Cheers!

Shankari said...

Thanks, it is beautiful!

Reminds me of the Sahil song (poem?)- "Chalo ek bar phir se..." as each time one meets, it is as strangers- another journey, a new discovery.

soulitaryreaper said...

I like the way you end this poem-
quite on a positive note, I wish I could do so too!
But then I don't know, whether what you write is life or just pregnant moments of creativity...

Cecilia said...

Do they set off TOGETHER, A?

Merry Christmas to you! Wishing you all the warmth, love and the best.

"Another moment

Casablanca said...

How simple and beautiful! Loved it!

GEL said...

I also liked the line "his boundary is just a line."
I wonder if this is a continuation of a past journey, not a new beginning, as some have speculated in the comments? When embarking on romance or trying to recapture or maintain it, often it feels like "for the last time", as in a last ditch effort. (I'm probably way off base and thinking or analyzing too much!)

I just cannot shake the sadness I still feel when reading this, as I have felt in reading your other recent pieces, so poignant in their simplicity and honesty. You're quite enigmatic and I respect that privacy.
Best 2006 wishes to you!

Anne said...

Happy holidays!
I love this piece. I continue to adore your writing and think you should be published any minute now. Don't forget the little people will you....:)
