The Abandoned Lakeside

The Abandoned Lakeside

written by: Nitin Suresh


Sun drifts along
a moss covered
dark steps unkempt for
abandoned where no
one cared and trod

The lovers once with
souls and hands entwined
tiptoed on the steps.
Thoughts wandered so
did their feelings

The little book of poems
read on the footsteps
Chatter of the busy birds
that frolicking bite of nasty insects
a theatre of sublime

The heritage of the village
laid barren on that piece
of earth waiting forever
to be reclaimed
before it fades away forever
