C'est la vie...

"O those sensual kisses from you!
Each one seemed like a dream come true.
My fondness and care but exponentially grew;
Alas, reality set in only when time flew."

Those disconsolate, bleary eyes...
Scouring her heart, all in vain,
She turns to Him that resides in the skies.
Momentary respite from a raging pain...

"I know not what I try to say...
I miss and love you more with each passing day!
Why... O why do you still keep me so at bay?!?
Nay... This is more than just an unpretentious lay!"

Her mind, as always - curious - flows,
In a quest for His forgiveness, yet untold.
A passionate refulgence within her glows.
Having failed in love, she had to be bold.

"Know that I adored you right from the start...
Fate may well take aim my dreaded dart.
We may be physically a whole world apart,
But you will forever be enshrined in my heart..."

*a cringe* Her angst never really ends...
She hopes the Omnipotent Being forgives;
For 'tis He who hath bless'd her with wonderful friends,
And 'tis His will that her love still lives...

"O my heart, whenst shalt thou be set free?
I fear to think what the Heavens would decree!
Yet I will stare you right down - O reality!
Amen. As the French say : C'est la vie..."

My first post of the year 2009 also happens to be a guest-post at Ms. Qureshi's blog - Simply Me Gratias, Mehreen! 

Now that I am done with my forced hiatus (due to reasons mentioned in the previous post), I look forward to catching up on posts that I have missed. A heartfelt "thank you" is all I have to offer, populi, for your warm words.

And oh yes, I have been generously showered with awards. Christmas, New Year and in general! Boy am I lagging behind. Winners will be announced soon. ;)

Peace. Be well.

I have been mourning of the fact that i lack the ability to rhyme poems.

I want to envy you.

Our pleasure is but mutual. :)

verbivorehere said...

its so damn beautiful! thnk ill use it as 'quotable quotes' in such a heart - missing you situation

Keshi said...

WB and Happy New Year Kartz! :)

So did u go to Romance School during the holiday season! ;-)


Karthik said...

I dunno French buddy!!! My frnd who usually translates while reading your blog isn't here... Loved the 3rd stanza.... As usual Beautiful.... And i've posted my 2nd on Fedex series....

Kartz said...

Gee, thanks. :)

Kartz said...

Ah! How I wish I had. :) But you know why I couldn't have, remember?

And ummm, this is a feminine recital. ;)

Kartz said...

Well, "C'est la vie." is loosely translated as "It is life." It is meant to imply, "Such is the way of life." Hope the explanation helped.

You need someone to translate what I write...?? O_O

Yes, will check it out soon!


Lena said...

lol i never said i dont :D
just poems are never on my priority basis, i am more a "story" person :D
poems are rare on my blogs.. only when i feel like :)

rampantheart said...

I had to read this poem two, three times to get the central idea. While girls are portrayed as fragile and emotional, they obviously aren't. Girls have the amazing art of forgetting things and moving on with life. This is reality. I am not being sardonic. I am not generalising but mostly girls aren't emotional idiots. Not that I mean the other gender is but it often works that way.

I liked the way you portrayed the girl's emotions. Way to go!

jayu said...

Kartz-loved your love poem.

It is mystical in its longings,hopes and ultimately,resignation.

C'est la vie.

Kartz said...

Yeah, I understand. To each his/her metiér, right? :)

Kartz said...

Hmmm... I am sure *someone* would be interested in the point you made.

Thanks! :)

Kartz said...

##Jayu Auntie
Life can drum the harshest of realities down our heads... Or can it...

Thanks! :)

Gauri Mathur said...

Whoa! Wow! Blown over! A beauty, beautiful words strung together to create a magical symphony! So purely romantic, more than being was all about the real pure love, the most beautiful emotion! I think I really am blessed to read great poetry! Very blessed, in fact. :)

Kartz said...

Merci beaucoup, madamoiselle... :) You're too kind.

Towards reclamation said...

he he .. you call this simple ???
he he no probs i think reading your posts will refurnish my vocab ;)

more importantly .. ummm .. nice poem .. but well .. I dunno am nt going to comment on whyming or the poem .. i somehow don understand why ppl do that .. a poem is for interpretation not comments ..

and this poem talks of acceptance .. and something i tall ppl and hv told my dear ones ..
"it's not that it wont pain or that if i loose you I wont be sad .. I will be .. its the fact that i love you that will never make me REGRET the pain and sorrow in endure/ will endure"


Kartz said...

##Towards reclamation

Well, thoda bahut to simple ha, bhai! ;P And pl, don't you undermine your vocabulary!

Your words there pretty much summed it up... People have to realize that. But I guess therein lies the innate beauty. Not many are able to realize it!

Thanks for the read, bro'... Sent you the next link.
