Canvas

canvas

I don't know 
whether I am there or not 
in your canvas,
I never got tired 
drawing the past 
with the crayons of our memories
moving on,never meant
looking back is a crime!
the years gone by 
may not come again
still the indelible imprints
they left behind
are enough to lubricate
the helpless heart machine
the charcoal
who knows
may be recycled 
to reproduce a flame
even now! 
if reading again the glossary   
of our conversations
and
re-reading the notation of love
are nothing but foolishness
then let they be!
looking at the peephole
with fortitude 
for a gleamer of self-made solace
is not at all to blame!

  2. “I don’t know
    whether I am there or not
    in your canvas,
    I never got tired
    drawing the past
    with the crayons oF our memories” “s till the indelible imprints
    they left behind
    are enough to lubricate
    the helpless heart machine” “if reading again the glossary
    of our conversations
    and
    re-reading the notation of love
    are nothing but foolishness”- these are my favorite parts of the poem and the most smoothly written as well! Nicely done.

    not looking back helps you forget. but who can stop! when i don’t i know its better, when i do it opens the wound. don’t need those people anyway and they sure don’t need me.

    • Yes you are right in your prospective..but sometimes we do look back whether we have moved on completely or partially .. the heart somehow fails to console itself ! The wounds hurt but the memories provide solace & hope! Emotional fools we are! Though the poem is a work of poet’s imagination, I appreciate your views . Thank you for reading & the feedback . Love.
