Overwhelm | Nove Otto | Short Poem on Life

A mist of dreams always follow
filling up my heart so hollow
traversing across unknown realms
while I lay in a peaceful trance
wishing upon that one lost chance
should I let the memories helm?
westerly winds take me away
and disperse all the sobriquet
should I hide when time overwhelms?

  1. Beautifully penned poem. The last line is essentially a question many of us will ask ourselves, at one point of time or the other – "Should I hide when time overwhelms?" Classy line 🙂

  2. It is so beautiful and romantic and sad. My mind went to a romance that did not work but one can interpret it in so many ways-so etherial. I love it
