Poems Poetry Writing

Love! Without You by Dr. Ashok Chakravarthy Tholana

Thoughts keep intervening
Illusions keep interweaving;
Betwixt the fleeting pleasures
And the volcanic fire of despair,
Intoxicating memoirs keep ringing
Intolerable pain keeps piercing;
With love, dejection and aversion
The citadel of passion looks broken.
Limitations and apprehension
Incapacitate my wavering vision;
Love! Without you, yes, my dear
Everything looks a vast vacuum
I can neither reveal nor conceal
As memoirs engulf at every dusk fall.
