No Kite Runner

Heart has a mind of its own
Located at the tail end…
Just follows mindlessly and
Accompanies it in its tryst with dare-devilry
Works only when enough
Irreversible irreparable damage is done…

Winged, it leaps upward
Elated by embracing the wind…
A moment of stormy rendezvous
The moment!
Heights reached and conquered…

…Leave a desire for more
More such heights…
Zipping through mazes
Competition stifling the flight
Cut-throat …
Strings snapped. Flights cut short.

Unfortunately no kite runner…

i think you have read Khaled Hossieni's book...but a nice poem.. i like the comparison as to the kite with its string so the heart is with its mind. and when the kite is cut loose there is a kite runner to bring it back but not for your heart, cut loose from its mind. isn't that what it means? i liked it a lot.

check out my blog too...just posted another poem. and critically analyse it. thats your literature assignment. lol.
