The scorching sun


You are the sun…
Giver of light and life.
Revolving around you is my being
Forever attached to you in an imaginary bond
Yet not deniable.

You tempt… playing games…
Day and night follow…
Now you give hope and now you snatch it…
To remind me that
You cant belong to me…
I am one of those many… who live because of you.
But in me, life is because of you.
Your rays my only hope…

In circles, I move… hopeful…
But sun that you are
You scorch, burn and keep me alive
To die in flames of burning hope…

I have been visiting your blog time and again to read this poem....I understand it as person who believes that one has to be optimistic...'HOPE' ...i that helps to pull along...but at the same time using earth as an image, nice....

hey padma,
its actually a heart craving for love... it lacks rationality and therefore hopes to win a lost battle.
