Manuscript


I keep...
Some idle words,
Few hollow lines,
By my bed side.
Half past midnight,
I write some more...
While few smile at me,
Standing on my door...
Puzzled with this random rush,
I search for the meaning within.
I adopt the simple versions,
The ones which touch my skin.
I flip the chapters of my life,
My life looks like an ash- tray.
I puffed every bit out of it,
But, I sing it as a ballet.
I write...I will continue to...
Everyday shaping my endeavour.
With my words I'm immortal,
In them...I will live forever and ever...

Pin It Now!

  2. Our words are truly immortal ~ they live on even when it is time for our souls to depart from this earth. I've always been enamored with that aspect of writing :-)

    " I search for the meaning within.

    Favorite lines! ~ nice read, Saru :-)

  18. Truly, writing is something which can give you peace when in distress, it can be your strongest empathizing force when everyone fails to understands. You can shout, you can roar, you can express it in your most diaphanous form.

    Writing surely is the best medium for 'expression', just as it is beautifully indicated by your finely written poem. :)

    1. Yeah, you can use the word 'photographs' instead of 'words'. And, what you said about writing is true for photography as well. I can't even hold a camera, forget about taking meaningful shots. You are truly blessed in that field.

  83. "With my words I'm immortal" -- That'll stay with me. I once heard that an artist is akin God for he creates, no matter what he does the one who dreams, alone makes the life move on. Evolution some may call it, but it starts with a dreaming mind.
