Is there a silver lining?

By Shilpa C Nangali

When I realized that love was an illusion
My heart got wrenched and the body was trembled

The cold hand holding the mobile started shivering
Awakening a pain within myself that is never easing

Eyes of my mind dart back and forth searching for dangers
Invoked by an over-active imagination of mind

The heart was stroked; words were caught within the throat,
In a battle between vain hopes and false promises

Knowing that the beloved never cares
An anxiety overtakes

In a mourning for my own life,
Betrayal of beloved keeps my heart wounded

Minutes pass, quietness returns,
With peace of mind being an oasis

Sadness settles upon the worn out soul,
Until sleep once again puts me away from haunting dreams

Hope never seizes
But is there a silver lining?


  1. Your poems often make me wonder about what happened in your past, that it still hurts you so badly? All I can do is offering a shoulder to cry on if you want to, ears to listen to your sorrows and a smile to cheer you up again. Still it is up to you to decide when to cry, what to talk about and if you want to smile with me. Please don't bury your pain too deep inside you, for there is more than just things to cry about in this world.

  2. @ Shillu..
    It’s so touchin’!
    It’s a sign of broken heart!!
    All it needs now is Heal!!!
    Love is so strange feeling, no one knows whom it detains..
    May be it’s a matter of days to love, but an entire lifetime to forget.
    Broken heart should try to not to think about it too much and go about their daily routine (which is difficult tho’)
    I know it keeps coming back, flouncing you like a wave..
    Its difficult – But POSSIBLE to come out..
    A journey that begins by exploring your relation with your cared n’ loved ones….
    Enough of this exhausting struggle!
    Enough of this intense emotions for someone who is not worth!!
    Let the transformation begin….
    Hope the broken heart soon recognizes it…
