The Lonely Traveler

August 16, 2008

Alone I walk through these lonely roads,
The woods beckon me in their autumn leaves,

I walk on through ,without stop

Till the darkness hid the woods from me

I whisper to the darkness, hoping for a reply

To the black velvet surrounding me

Seconds passed, to minutes, minutes to hours

No answer! Nothing! Just plain darkness

Desolation surrounded me for the umpteenth time,

For the umpteenth time I suffered

But I hoped, I hoped for an helping hand

A support, I wanted to have.

The wall was there big and sturdy',

Like a tall edifice in the dark,

The walls i tried to break hurt me,

The more I tried the more i Failed

I must walk now cause the road is long,

The longer it becomes, the lonelier you are

Hopes not diminished ,I walk through these roads

just like the lonely traveler i was before

Unnikrishnaa, i was transported 30 years back when I was regularly cursing the Woods (as you did), Nature and the general nature of things, for the slow rotation of the earth as the distance between lunch and dinner appeared unreasonably long. You definitely have succeded in creating the mood :)
