Nice to see you.



''They are not long, the days of wine and roses:
Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for a while, then closes,
Within a dream.''

Poem - A Missing Link




A Missing Link

Please help us with our enquiries
We are curious
We are fearful
We are keeping an open mind

Was never quite active enough
Yet still missing in action
And has been for some time
(elusive time)

Have you seen anything out of the ordinary?
In the vicinity?
Anything at all?
We are taking our mind for a fast walk
In order to jog our memory.
  
Yet the search goes on
We must continue to investigate
And we must always hope
God forbid
It is too horrible
To think the worst.



There is only us
There is only our voices
So we can never allow the trail
To turn cold

If you pray
Include us
Something like this
Should never happen again
Again.
Though we know it will.
What is the media campaign after all
But just another story.

The circumstances were terrible
Tsk tsk,
I know you’re glad it’s not you
All we are asking
Is to Never be forgotten

Now, where were we?



Next post,
The last video poem for 2011, Deliberate Strangers.
followed by
the last Greatest Written Film Review for 2011.

I hope to see you then.

  1. "We are taking our mind for a fast walk

    This is wonderfully powerful and thought-provoking, Anthony. I keep re-reading it; it says so much. Excellent work, my friend.

  2. Even if it didn't rhyme..haha...wonderful verse, truly sucked me in from start to finish and thought provoking does describe it well.

  3. Those are powerful words. My God, those are powerful words! I have to ask... since you write like this, why on earth were you trying to fight the fact that you're a writer?

    It's okay if you take that question as a rhetorical one... :)

  4. Thanks Robyn, for your support..always.. xo

    Cheers Pat for dropping by. I know it doesn't rhyme, but I can't explain why. ;)

    That's a nice thing to hear Arnab.. and nice to see you here. For a long time I wanted to be a film director. I made quite a few short films (I'm putting one up here in a few weeks, so I hope you'll stick around), but as I got older, I've realised that I'm a writer and I really can't be anything else. If I can't make a success out of it, I'll be a bum.. lol.. who still writes.

    Hope to see you here again. And I'll be checking out your work too.

    Cheers.

  6. This seems to be a poem with a lot of personal attachments and references. It was difficult for me to understand some of it, but it makes me want to get to know you more so I can know the meanings behind your poetic words.

  7. Cheers Pat and Nadeemalim... the great thing about poetry is that it's all open to interpretation.. it's whatever you want it to be.
