Poem - Time to move on

Time to Move On - Anup R

It's time to put things in order
It's time to put people in their place
It's time for a new beginning
It's time to move on

Eyes - "don't cast a look a around
lest fond memories weaken my resolve"

Ears - "hear, but don't listen to goodbyes
lest tears flood my eyes"

Tongue - "don't say a word today
lest my voice betray the sorrow within"

Heart - "look only to the future that beckons
lest I'm swayed by the love I've known so far"

Its time to confront what I've known all along
Down here, nothing lasts forever

Not friendship ...
... Not even love

Dreams are pleasant ...
... but one can't live in a fantasy forever

So I'll heed the call of life,
Pack up my stuff...
.... and move on ....

This is the first time that I've not paid any attention to rhyme ... thanks for the inspiration ... C Addict! .... :)

this 1 was qyt an optimistic in a pessimistic kinda way actually...i mean u r hurt and disillusioned bt u r strong enuf to stand up agen and determined to move on,move ahead...and trying to rhyme,i think,puts constraints...there's a freedom in poems that dont rhyme and the free flow of thoughts become evident...good work;-)

both r different...there's a different beauty in both kinds of poems...I used to write rhyming poems qyt smtm back bt then my sis advised me to write without concentrating on rhyming and since then i luv writing like that...its not necessary to rhyme bt there must b a rythm...even wen words dt rhyme...thats wot makes a poem beautiful...thats wot i feel anyway!!!

I agree with the first comment, this is like an omptimistic poem in a pessimistic point of view. Very nice! It sounds like there's hope, but there's still a battle going on.

Hope you're doing great. Take care and God bless!

Very creative. I would describe the poem as bittersweet. And yes, that is a compliment. ;o)

@Amu
Hi Amu, I missed u here ... :)

@CAddict
Right u are ... and there's no way I can despise u for that ... :)

@Elaine
Yup, will take ur advice ... I'll definitely try to take it easy next time ... but the problem is that I love falling in love ... guess I love the feeling of being in love too much .... so, even if I get hurt, in a crazy way, I feel it was worth it ... :)

@Roshomon
Hiya... thanks a lot! .. I'll be checking out ur blog soon ... thanks for dropping by ...

@Puneet
