Overwhelming Emotions


via Daily Prompt: Overwhelming

Flipping through an old diary,

glanced upon a dried rose,

buried under the soiled pages.

It opened  floodgates of memories,

overwhelmed by a sea of emotions,

reminiscing the beautiful love story,

of stolen moments spent with each other ,

hidden from the prying eyes.

The long letters exchanged,

promises made for a lifetime together!

Alas, fate dealt a cruel blow,

making you only a beautiful memory!

    mind mood and memory can be shattering,; the only healing factor can be time.

    Emotionally expressed poem by you, again translated into Hindi would be “Gulazaric”

    Araz karta hun” Jo apne inspire kiya…..The time to meet , tweet and part….is the tale of many a broken Heart”……Adab……..
