Scorned

In measure of time, a tiny scar.
Scares me with the "staring abyss", away from which I want to Walk.
Walk I would, but my memory cements those dark velvety churns..
Churns control me, I float, drift or perhaps, walk in a quicksand..

Sandwhiched between self loathe and rage.
Raging for retribution, as I am roasted by a fury from within,
Within also flickers a flame of hope,that I would respond and not react.
Act only because I want. Prove its just I won't, not I can't.

Can't yet climb back on the pedestal, without a final kick..
Kicking hard to get the slush off, from my mind and feet.

  1. Really nice! I'd not got it the first time around. Was going to leave it at that. Glad, gave it a second attempt.

    I understand the predicament here of choosing between inaction/indifference as dictated by our moral virtue and rational reasoning, v/s the reaction guided by the fear of considering oneself as powerless. Brilliant! I think this struggle forms the basis of a vast majority of our decisions - right from something as trivial as whether to leave that sarcastic remark in response to someone's comment on blog to whether nuke a 'weaker' country or not! ;) TC.

  3. It's not only about highlighting. Genuine understanding of poetry usually takes a lot of hardwork. Many people praise especially poetry without understanding the central idea. Of course, many people WRITE it without a central idea! :)

  6. hmmm isn't there a contradiction
    "understanding of poetry usually takes a lot of hardwork" vs "many people WRITE it without a central idea!" :)
    and sometimes the purpose might be to not reveal the central idea..
    its fun to paint for the pleasure of painting, even if it results in a technically poor painting..

  7. When I said 'understanding "poetry"', I implicitly meant one with an idea to it. ;)

    And I was talking of that kind of poetry without central idea, which would've not even given pleasure to the writer, except for pleasure of getting too many highly praising comments! ;)
