Alas! He was the one!

On the Facebook page of this blog, on 15th March, I started a fun venture, asking the poets who liked my poetry page to respond to a topic that I gave. The two best poems, I would post it here. Only two poems were there in the first topic. Janhvi and Ellecee tried, and here, I share what they wrote.


Alas! he was the one! – by Ellecee

Alas! he was the one
Who came when loss had just begun
He filled the gaps with sweet refrains
Made flowers out of dead remains
We laughed and cried and sang of love
I the hand and he the glove
I sprouted wings and flew so high
There was nothing I wouldn’t try
And then one day he went away
Leaving me in disarray
I was crippled, I fell to earth,
Questioned daily what it was worth
I settled for memories as the prize
That only he could realize
Alas! he was the one
My helpless heart could not outrun.


Alas! He was the one! – by Janhvi

He swooped me off my feet at once,
showed me what it meant to dance.
The feeling was magical while it was,
for my smile, he was the cause.
He mastered the art of speaking with eyes,
I wish I had known, they were but lies.
He made me know the charm of life,
the excitement was at the tip of the knife.
Then a lady came to the mike,
She said someone’s wife was waiting by their bike.
It seemed someone had shot me with a gun,
when I did realize, alas! he was the one!


Hope to see you both, and more of you at the next fortnight! I’ll put the topic on 30th March, and it’ll end on 12th April! Cheers!

Poetry & writing 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.
