feather ...

I see you flying..
towards the horizon ...
I want to touch you..
but I fear ...
O my dear !
you are soft ...
just as cream ..
I have a dream ...
to mingle ..
but a fearsome jingle ...
and I stop !
I stop by a spot ...
bit familiar ..
yet strange ...
so deep ..
that I sleep ..
It's peace ..
divine symphony ...
I hear ..something ..
I can't bear !
a fraud in the heart ...
purity with dirt ..
Please don't do this ...
it's poison ..it's kiss...
I will fly ...
to another world ..
very far ..
from u !!
or from me ...
I don't know ..But..
O wind ! blow me ...
I am just a feather ...

I like your style of writing :) Its simple and so smooth, in flow.

But I do not think I have got the poem correctly.. Here is what I think. It depicts the feelings of a feather of a bird which has fallen down.
But I did not understand the thoughts behind the lines :

but a fearsome jingle ...
and I stop !
I stop by a spot ...
bit familiar ..
yet strange ...
so deep ..
that I sleep ..
It's peace ..
divine symphony ...
I hear ..something ..
I can't bear !


Help me out, please!

But indeed, it felt so soothing to read this write.

Thanks for the encouragement ..

You got it correct :)

Lines specified by u depicts a clash inside feather's mind to stay near the heart of bird ...

it stops for a second near the heart ..which is so divine so smooth so peaceful that feather decides to stay there ... BUT ....

suddenly it hears the voice of bird's heart which is not so pleasant ..Bird has abandoned the feather not only from it's body but also from it's heart..

this is unbearable for the feather ....and it requests the wind to blow it off the bird ..so that it could rest in peace !!!

I hope I made it clear ..
