Untitled Poem II


Curtains drawn aside,
Sunlight streaming in the day,
A shard of bright light,
Screaming the dark away.
Coming alive,
Leading the way,
Misty paths, I hope,
They clear before it's too late.

Colours, they start to fade,
Smudging fine lines, traces,
Stabbed & left for dead.
Drained out the life,
Nothing I would trade,
Nothing to last.
Colours, they run,
Stained in a parallel past.

Confused and lost, and then,
An ashen face,
I thought back to when,
I'd betrayed myself.
All the time spent,
In Nothingsville,
My ears I had lent,
Taught myself to lie.

Scissor edged reality,
Cutting through,
A paper thin mirage,
A wish to come true,
Hope nothing gives way,
Thoughts whisked away,
Haunting faces, places,
From my memory erases.

It's time to depart..... To fade away.....


(No! I am not troubled & my heart does not ache... You may now go back to playing with your respective blow-up dolls...)

@ Rini - Haha!
I'm overwhelmed... But to be frank, I just went beserk writing those lines..
& go ahead and copy the pic..
I'll 'SEW' you alright.. I'll 'SEW' you good! :P

@ Just me - Thanks! :)
& well, yes! It does get darker.. But I've unsuccessfully tried so hard to write about the pitter-patter of raindrops on rose petals and something gay like that, but something takes a sharp turn somewhere, the clouds grey & smoeone dies all of a sudden.. :P
I'm just not cut out to write nice sappy stuff I guess..

@ Sow - Food poetry?
Hmmm... As interesting as the thought might seem, I'm doubly sure you just will not understand that either..
So just shush & tell me that you thought it was fantastic even if you didn't understand a shred of poetry.. :P

@ anki -
Oh My!!
Do not blame my 'depressing' poetry if you have personal issues.. :P
Do forward the suicide note to me though.. I would like a draft of the format... Just in case I need it sometime. Lol..
