PAST, PAIN & FUTURE (part 1)

(Here is only a part of the poem)

As the thought comes across
my pensive mind; intuition fails me
Sliding down to blindness; a sense of loss;
Deary isolation kills me.
Grabbed by a real challenge.
Is recollection of the past
a real help? When winds of change
wanting in life so to blow away the dust?
Life hard upon me this moment
Thoughts are measureless, but
reality is not, I understand:
From the world I not shut.
I see a new day coming.
Then why do I crave still
for the bygone? Trying
to cover the only journey impossible
(retreat to yesterday?)
Vainly trying to clasp water
in my fist; cherished fond memories:
Aim at holding on to them forever?
And hover around reality and dreams?
Reconciliation possible no more
Though my feelings are extant even today.

to be contd..

    "Reconciliation 'is' possible no more
    Though my feelings are extant even today".
    This one much improved n really nice written bt u must use words like, is,are,was,can, have.
    it's nt only the flow or u trying to write like old poets whose wordings r so deep dat they wont require these.
    I appreciate u for dis bt being poetical n correct in english is more imp.

    Like the Restless Poet said, this one's much improved. And much easier to understand. Your previous one's took me 3-4 careful reads to understand. Nice structuring. I liked the last part of the poem a lot. "Trying to cover the only journey impossible...." onwards. Great creativity and language.
    Keep writing!!!
