POETRY : Eternity by Rekha Varanasi

Hold on to my hand,
Lest the wind, or the rain unclasp the band
To tear me, away from you,
Like in the dream, last night, that brew.
Tears, hapless sighs escape from my grasp
Unhindered from the tight clasp.
A heart that flutters seeking the unknowingly grown
But Oh! The agony ceaseless, unmercifully shown.
Sleep no more! No more! Lie suppressed
Dreams! Bountiful hauntingly depressed.

A journey begun, a castle built,
Hand in hand, dream we did to the hilt.
Many a song escaped the lips soothingly,
Fortune’s favourite pair we were seemingly.
Until like the dainty cobweb dangling,
Our dreams do lie like a fish angling.
The pain, the misery, the affliction, the torment,
Replaces the joy, the pleasure, with the lament.
These dreams! Oh! my dreams of tonight
Will continue till I wake up with all my might.
