It will be, without a figment of doubt,
an utter disgrace
If what you mean to me, in words,
I try to trace
And yet words; for these are words indeed,
have been put down
Help me; for I know not what to say, or how,
help me invent a noun

Definition: companion
Synonyms: accompaniment, addition, aggregate, augmentation, balance, capacity, completion, correlate, correlative, counterpart, enhancement, enrichment, entirety, filler, finishing touch, pendant, quota, remainder, rest, rounding-off, supplement, total, totality, wholeness

nice poem that undercuts its own writing!

Neat! You brilliantly saved it from becoming cliched. Nicely put.

your lines reminds of a line from a song... "haath se chu ke ise rishton ka ilzaam na do"

Well written. I liked the use of the word noun to write a poem around.

Gosh, been a while since I viewed your blog. Didn't realize you'd taken to poetry :-)

Well Nish, I have my "poetic" days :-). Am back to prose again.
