Desert Rose

Image Source

I stood alone all this while
Waiting for a mirage to cross my eye
But nothing ever came my way
My own existence felt like a lie

Only the heat kept me company
The sun glared on with all its might
In-spite of the warmth, I felt cold inside
Be it the morning, noon or night

What have I done to deserve this
Is this how my life will always be
Will I find my knight in shining armor
To my locked life who holds the key

Just when I had given up on love
I saw the first glimpse of you
I just prayed my mind was not playing tricks
When you came closer, I knew you were true

Looking at you, my faith was restored
I always knew that God had a plan
When you smiled down upon me
I realized that you were my perfect man

You brought me peace and hope
Hovering above me all the time
You were the perfect companion
I the words, you the rhyme

My life feels so bright now
You sprinkled love in the perfect dose
Finally after years of standing alone
On my parched earth then bloomed a rose

P.S: I had this crazy idea about associating the five elements of nature - fire, water, air, earth and sky to human emotions and love. And in the form of poetry. I already wrote about fire, water and air. This one is the fourth in the series, earth.

  6. That's a nice take on the elements. Creative. At the moment, I have given up on a prince in shining armor. I am just happy enjoying my solitude and freedom.

  10. These are beautiful lines. I liked the way the emotions of deep sadness in the first few stanzas transcends into a peaceful place of happiness towards the end. The reader leaves with a smile feeling happy for the protagonist in the poem.

    Cheers :)
