"Beauty is truth,
truth beauty,
that is all Ye know on Earth,
that is all Ye need to know..." - John Keats

Placid Hearts...

Placid hearts travel through the valleys,
Cold and numb our limbs take us through this darkness..
Nocturnal chill, and placid hearts, I travel with the bards,
I travel through this world of sadness and sorrow,
I travel through all that smiles, and all that waves its beauty along…

You know when you love,
You know when you pray,
You know when you laugh,
And when you believe, and with faith utter
that whisper which says,
All that is there to believe, is truth,
Eternity is down, down in the darkest of alleys,
Where your tears flow away,
And those moments capture the colours divine,
When truth and love lets you cry…

You know the story of phoenix says,
You can never give up,
your fall is your birth,
You can never belong in despair…

Long yet beautiful journey,
it is still to come…
Failures won’t stop him,
who knows that mountains are like
Small humps of those roads,
that lead to home…
We who love that which gives us pain,
We who think of that which hurt us,
We who just know to be plain humans,
We know that there is nothing to be confounded about,
‘cos all our smiles lie across the oceans,
Like those waves infinite,
and those waves tell me that,
When your heart is open,
the voyage shall reach home…
And placid, the hearts shall rest...

Hey, Hi

Buddy, when i read this post, all i drew was a blank. i read it again, tried to go slow and understand, let it sink in. but all i could feel is turbulence. Not in the post, but in you while writing it. i just feel you have tried to put in effort in this one. doesnt seem natural.. doesnt seem "You". I would say, this isnt the best of you. as much as i have read your posts, you are much better at this.

Best Regards,
The Silhouette...

p.s.- sorry if i sound too preachy or if i offend you in any way.

I thank you for your honest comment...:) Like I mentioned elsewhere,this was written in between moments of turbulence,in a brief moment of respite... I was welling in too many thoughts and emotions while I tried to put in myself into it,and I think I find myself in agreement with your comment...:)
Like I said,thanks...:)
