the broken Wings of a Butterfly

no happiness holds me high
like that of the eternal light
none other do I seek as I fly
when there's hinderance in the flight

do i near the light emerging
i can feel the smell of fire
seductive appear'd the flame flickering
as i flew into the unsuspecting ire

unawares was i caught
as i smelt the burning wings
my life has gone wrought
as i let go of it without any strings

(song am thinking of ....
Baadalon Se Kaat Kaatke,
Kaagazon Pe Naam Jodna
Yeh Mujhe Kya Ho Gaya?)

If you keep writing the poems I'll keep reading them. Poetry is something I've never been able to write, and I admire your ability to bring images to life in such succinct prose.

Keep it up!

All the best,

Avik

Well Swathi,
Its good to write about some songs that are close to ur heart. Thats why i wrote about 'tujhse naaraaz nahi'.
Btw, the hindi para is too good. U penned it ?
Since when did u start writing so good. I never knew this when u were here...or is this the Blore effect ?

Swathi said...

@Avik

@shyo
