A Fistful Of Stars: Alone

Hariharan Balakrishnan's poem reflects the isolated feelings of a sensitive poet.

Poetry wilts
In dessicated emptiness
When thoughts refuse
To come out with light
And emotion floods
The heart, the soul
In sadness

For reason refused
And emotion badgered
A fore-thought kicked
Right on this forehead
Of reason defined
And expressed
In clariy, aloud

A rare day
A strange world
A milieu beyond me
Do I stand up, have my say
Or sit still like the Buddha
Meditating in silence
Or simply walk away
