Memories Overwhelm

A mist of dreams always follow,
Filling up my heart so hollow,
Traversing across unknown realms,
While I lay in a peaceful trance,
Wishing upon that one lost chance,
Should I let the memories helm?
Westerly winds take me away,
And disperse all the sobriquet,
Should I hide when time overwhelms?

Poetry Type - Nove Otto

  3. Wow! Got to learn a new type of poems and a beautiful creation in that mode. Each line is very deep :-).

  4. What a beautiful read... Love that last line..:-)

  5. It is so beautiful and romantic and sad. My mind went to a romance that did not work but one can interpret it in so many ways-so etherial. I love it

  6. This is a beautiful and unfamiliar form. Well done!

  7. Beautifully penned poem. The last line is essentially a question many of us will ask ourselves, at one point of time or the other - "Should I hide when time overwhelms?" Classy line :)
