Drift


cry,hurt,lonely
It just hurts


                                                      Lovers of yesterday
                                               Drift away , no love  no smile.
                                                        sit like strangers..




                                                          The music of love
                                                    no more a manna for him
                                                       notes turn discordant.




                                                           Why this drift
                                                   between the love birds,both
                                                         are now world apart.


                                                 

                                                      The stars and moon
                                               Witness to their sweet nothings ,
                                                        silently see her tears.

  7. Love just does not last. It has permutations and changes into something you can live with or cannot. Human beings are complicated individuals,unpredictable and cannot be ever be fully understood.

  10. The anguish of love turned sour is beautifully expressed in each of your Haiku Ushaji... I find it it difficult to choose a favorite among these 4, each one is exquisite.
