Eternity

My skepticism for the eternity of the word ‘eternal’,

May be it’s a mere perception, or for that matter a repercussion.

Eternal assurance, eternal promise, eternal invitation,

I have only discovered hollowness and futility to hear these

For I’ve witnessed the culmination, beginning leading to an end

Everything dwindling and disappearing in the air

Never ever to be uttered or to happen again

A feeling of eternity that was just momentary

Anything that is born does die, so nothing tangible can be eternal,,but emotions are eternal, so are dreams, and so is love, for these do not die with the person.

Very true Sujata. Dreams, emotions and love are truly truly eternal. Though I didn't say this but somehow my intention was directed in that direction only.

BTW how did you find the poem.

The problem is not with the word, but with our understanding of the word. When I say, " I will love you eternally", it is quite possible that I do feel so at the moment I say it, but hell, nobody can stop me if i feel different the next moment. The point is, when I promised eternal love, did I mean it in all conviction, in all truthfulness, in all sincerity.
You see, Kalpana, in that moment, there is eternity. Do not confuse eternity with period in time....

But then, we have to have our certainties, don't we, our reassurances, to keep our faith in life? Breaking out of such limitations is freedom; to realise that life is a garland made of such moments, such flowers with eternal fragrance...

There is a harsh, wild beauty about your lines... a kind of defiance, bitterness... as you write more, you will sense that you are gradually moving away... away to bright sunshine...

Thanks Balaji for this lovely comment. Actually that is the truth, the feeling of eternity for that moment. I was in a way trying to hold it in a time bound manner. Believe me. when I wrote it I was in a different state of mind, but now when I am reading, I am myself deriving meanings similar to what you've described, the beyoondness of eternity .....
poetry is magical!
