Adieu, My friend!




Treading on this road, there’s a curve approaching,
Unsteady gaze, pensive and unwilling, we give in,
As the world flashes by in front of my eyes,
I wonder, What becomes of us?
                        Why should I cry now, when we drift apart,
                        When there was no tear, when we once met?
                        Those moments shared, that uphill walk,
                        Our hearts seemed to be strung into the single thread;
How can I forget, that childish banter,
Those mocking scuffles, your chirpy chatter?
Over are those times when fighting was leisure,
And confiding little secrets, derived eternal pleasure;
Why should I cry now, when we drift apart,
                        When there was no tear, when we once met?
                        We fought, we got upset, but still held together,
                        There is no fight now, then what did happen?
Our paths, are entwined like a stranded helix,
No matter how much we twist,
No matter how hard we turn,
Our paths will cross, but never be one;
Why should I cry now, when we drift apart,
                        When there was no tear, when we once met?
                        Our roads diverge here, the curve’s been taken,
                        So till we next meet, Adieu, my friend!!

simply excellent! i think this is one of your best poems ever...i loved the emotions and could really relate to it. especially like the lines about the helix and the repeated lines: "Why should I cry now, when we drift apart,When there was no tear, when we once met?" - so true! :)

thanks MEHAK. I have a problem with poetry. Rather I have a problem with writing anything non-technical. in poetry, in virtually every poem, only 4 or 8 lines are the real lines that came altogether. The rest, I feel, merely complete them like a prologue and epilogue. BUT its the motivation from these comments that help me finish them.
@KISH
thank you for appreciating.

Clear and well-written. A very
wise poem. Instead of bemoaning
that there is a separation, know
that certain people are always
connected.

Those two little lines spoke to me.

And, like Raj up there, I found it OUCH. :'(
