melancholy

My mind lies mumbling
Entrapped by a dream
Lost to burning failure
All days drag long
Nights seem much dearer
Can hope ever penetrate
Heart and dream again
Or will mind remain
Languishing under a cloud
Yearning for silver linings

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. An Acrostic after ages for your favorite topic 'Melancholy' nicely done!! Hope to see you more often there 🙂 I hope that, that hope, makes a happier appearance soon!! 🙂

  2. My Acrostics tend to be more simplistic and sillier….this evoked some strong memories in me….the silver lining is just at a hand's reach…all we need is to see. Really enjoyed it. (wonder if can I say that for a sad piece)

  3. Melancholy ain't my favorite topic, Nanka. Just a mood I find myself in often. Will be trying to write more acrostics too, and happier ones as well. This was the only non-happy theme at AO this time na.

  4. Thank you, Rekha. I am glad you enjoyed the poem. Yes, the silver lining is there for all to see.. but we see it very rarely when melancholy is covering us..
