Intend to see

A ran hard worked heart taking rest
before freezing; it takes rest as wearing
simplicity…. antiquity hiding the eyes
where compassion gone, banding its eyes.

Understand relations stand in distance watching
some mysterious hearts lives in some intend
when a distress visits, worries comes admit
uninterested relation this or that it seeks.

Unable to hide the truth
it came here and fell
to wake up and answer
though the world hesitates.

Eyes stain in imagination
what happened is true,
to remember wetness in heart
I glance to forget but my intend not conceal

Nice one. When did you write this? You seem to be having a great talent. Why can't you pursue your skills in writing poems like this. By the way your font alignment has still not been corrected. Did you have a look at it?

Hey Jeevan, good to see that you are keeping on writing poetry! Keep writing more. Thanks for the Engish translation. Eventhough I can read Tamil, it will take time to read and understand. :-)
