Illustration by Vikram Roy © 2012.

You were at the main entrance of the university,

Standing in front of me into the crowd,

Chemistry books in your hand!


You tweet a well-known look at me,

I asked “Are you new?”

With a smile, you answered ‘yes!’


Surprisingly we met again!

Waiting at the same row,

She was your friend or sister?


You talk very little in an outlandish tone!

Wearing pasty shirt and stretched blue jeans,

Calm, fair, beautiful, white at noon!


I wanted to talk to you more, suddenly

A clerk came and announced, “students of science separate into different row!”

Giving no chance to ask your name!


*** This poem is for all those people, we meet at road, college, university and work-place. We meet and talk to them for a little time. We share, then forget them one day! Blur memory remains quite strong, we spend!



With Love!

Vikram Roy.

    Wow, There is something really special about this poem. It takes me to a place I remember…

    I absolutely love the painting! Are you the artist? It is beautiful. Goes with the poem so well, a fleeting image and eventually a blur of a memory.

    Your recent poem describes “what could have been” but alas was not.


  30. flowerpoet says:

    Thanks so much for sharing this! Your words ‘blur memory’ jump out of the text and would also make a great title for your poem and digital art. I look forward to seeing your other creative and interesting posts.
