Stains

You stepped on my pride and I shot,
your blood would stain my face forever,
you were neither my friend, nor my foe,
then why?..I do not know!

Tried washing the stains,
but they darken with each wash,
to remind me of pain,
the storm over..now its the time for rain.

I haven't slept,
water hasn't quenched my thirst,
.....Your blood makes it red,
since the day,the day I gifted you the death bed.

I orphaned a flower,
I widowed a bride,
I extinguished a flame,
Is it only me?...Only me to blame?

I killed you and I died myself,
Our chests decorated,
Yours with a medal,mine with a burden..a sin,
Why my friend?,why?,why did you step in?

while writing this, the image in my mind was of two soldiers fighting it out on the border.. doing justice to their respective duties..

but yes , can be interpreted like you say,Anand.. :)

terrorism ,now ,seems to be the alias for war anyway

I am not a "pro" at poetry, studied 15 poems in my syllabus only from the paraphrases, but could understand it well when I read your comment.
Keep blogging!
I must tell you that I am not a bard myself, so I appreciate everyone who has this immortal fire in him. :)

you never need to be a pro at poetry.. nobody probably is.
That for me , is the beauty of poetry : interpret the way you like and understand :)

Thanks for chipping in

Hey thanks for your comments on my blog. Really appreciate it!

And what a lovely poem this was. I agree with someone else here. It did remind me of a terrorist. Wish God grants them a conscience like the guy in this poem

Keep Blogging:)

the play on masochism and sadism reminds me of the movie 'kill bill'... i feel it could have been more intense... in terms of imagery, i felt it was pretty good....

thanks for your analysis, Wasp :)

hi ppl. I'm actually into shoes and I have been looking for the sake of that exact model. The prices as regards the sneakers were all over 350 dollars on every site. But finally I base this locate selling them for half price. I exceptionally like those [url=http://www.shoesempire.com]prada sneakers[/url]. I will probably purchase them. what do you think?
