Word Play Wednesday: Tundra! A Poem by Boma

Welcome to Word Play Wednesday!

Word Play Wednesday is a weekly feature of written and spoken word poetry. I will be sharing my written and spoken word poems in addition to poems by other like minds. If you are interested in sharing some of your poetry, feel free to buzz me and we can work something out.

I hope that you enjoy reading and listening to our thoughts, feelings and rants and in many ways relate to some of them.




Your Words have become cold
Just like the Tundra
A vast expanse of emptiness
The Distance appears in your eyes
The distance echoes in your voice
A loud shout in the past
Now it’s barely a whisper
My heart still beats
But these days it’s quiet
For u
It’s been silenced by the frost in your words
Just like the Tundra
I take time out to wonder
I wander aimlessly about this space between us
Is it place or is it time
Like a ship without anchors
We are adrift
North and South
East and West
Yin and Yang
We don’t compliment anymore
I try to escape this reality
But the strong, cold winds keep hitting my face
Teary eyes and running nose
My emotions are getting frozen
This rain is beating my heart
This cold wind is blowing my mind
Quenching the fire in my soul
Even if the flames are rekindled
I will not stoke it
But for anyone who cares
I will smile like the sun
We will melt this ice
Till that moment when I feel like the sun
I will also be the rain
A new reason for living again…
