a doubtful interrogation of an uncertain problem

how
did your life
change

why
are you
now

where
i was
then

who
haunts you
today

what
do you
think of

when
she looks
at you

To meet the love of your life and to lose that love in some way or the other, is the greatest sorrow that one can experience...

First Rain said...

Life
stopped, and
turned around

Questions
answered
themselves to me

I
tried then
to breathe her in

Still
unable to
catch my breath

Now
I search
for life in vain

The format of this poem is perfect. I especially love the lines:

why
are you
now

where
i was
then

Crypic, indeed. An interrogation stemming from jealousy or simple curiosity? hmm.

Beautiful. Lovely as always. I have not been by for a while, but your writing is as poignant as it ever was.

Phoenix said...

life
changed
when
she looked

i am
where i
was never
before

i was
where i
was never
before

when she
looks
i just
watch

time stops
life changes
i dont
think.

taking sides.pro and cons.half and half. here and there. this and this. I like how you separated your poem. And keeping it whole.

melancholy and beautiful.

perspective said...

i suppose you wanted to say "Where are you now" and then "where am i"... isnt it?

Ram said...

loved the title to your post.. and it is an uncertain problem indeed.. and not all the how/what/where/why/who/when would really help i guess !
