3 lines of life



I made a mistake this morning.
Yet again,
I woke up alive.


I am charlatan.
I peddle false emotions.
Mine which I am too scared to call my own.


It happened to me.
But when I write, it only maybe happened.
I can be everything I am in my writing.


I can only laugh at my foolishness.
And yours.
But mostly at my own. Ha.


I am a feminist when in other people’s rights.
In my own,
I am a coward.

You tug at the heart with every line written. Poetry becomes you.

I too made a mistake this morning,
Yet again, I woke up too early.

I live a scared existence, I peddle emotions,
But they are always thine, seldom mine.

My writing is the only occasional book of my life that most may get to read.

I dont dare laugh at my own foolishness, lest I cease to be so.

I am the bravest soul my vain self ever encountered.

Hmmm...the differences... :-)

Neat and nice Poornima.

How abt?.......

I made a mistake this morning.
Yet again, only an alarm could wake me.

I'm charlatan.
I peddle false emotions.
Good enough to convince, I'm not wrong!

It happened to me.
It definitely did happen.
But I don't laugh at my foolishness.
For I know everyone is a fool sometimes.

Perhaps, without an incorrigible sense of inadequacy, a writer doesnt exist.

Will there be singing in darkness??

Ofcourse, there will be, about darkness.

Darkness is a fallacy, it creeps and destroys some. Some Die of it, singing about it.. on and on!

There are people being butchered around, are they engulfed by the same darkness? Funny though!

your blog and all the people who comment in it is just the kind of soul-stirrer I need by mid-day! :D

I've always thought the best part about your blog was its audience. No taking away credit from what beckoned them in, though!

Clash: One can always sing. If there is a shadow, it means there is a light shining not far off.

Sri: Its the mirror that not looks back confidently at us! :)

Lazy Strokes: Diplomatic eh? :)

Its a beautiful rainy night,
As the thunder masks all the noises,
As the drops pour in total gaiety,
The wet breeze,
Silently instilling a new lease of passion in everyone's heart,
The heart longs for whom it beats.

how u been. :) m back in blr.
