You’ll never walk alone

We’ll walk down a cold damp road
shaded with red, blue & green
of the neon billboards on the rooftops
streetlights fogged with vapor
rising from a grey bakery’s chimney
smoke seeps through cracked metal pipes
old & rusted, seeking a repair

The scent of east Indian tea
float from a Darjeeling tea shop
arousing my nostrils
an old woman lighting the gas stove
placing copper pans
roasted coffee beans on racks
springs a concoction bitter & sweet

On a yellow brick wall
spray-painted graffiti
weaves a silk space
subway station, bridges over the Brooke
pulls me to the time & space
when I strummed my guitar
near the golden bonfire
for all looked, but you saw
winter in me
the fall

As ships dock in the harbor
so do me & you
we’ll drink scotch whiskey on a full moon night
If you shiver, I’ll coat you with a woolen blazer
my mother gifted, when I turned 21
monsoon rains sweep your feet
In the midst of the lightning & Tempest
blossoms my love
for broken thorns
& you

  1. The poem is short but carries a lot of meaning if scrutinized properly.

    Such a profound way of writing. Love the beginning part of it( We’ll walk down a cold damp road)
    and the end part of the poem just made it look real again( In the midst of the lightning & Tempest blossoms my love for broken thorns
    & you)

    Thanks for giving me that mindset about emotion as you said in your poem explanation.

    I still remain  the simple blogger…..
