Bookmarked - The 'Way' and 'Why' I Write



I keep...
Some idle words,
Few hollow lines,
By my bedside.

Half past midnight,
I write some more.
While a few smile at me,
Standing by my door.

Puzzled with this random rush,
I search for meaning within.
I adopt the simple versions,
The ones that touch my skin.

I flip the chapters of my life,
My life looks like an ashtray.
I puffed every bit of it,
But I sing it as a ballet.

I write...I will continue to...
Everyday shaping my endeavor.
With words I'm immortal,
In them...I will live forever and ever.

This is an old poem. Reposting as it reminds me of simpler times. Also, I've been writing daily for over 76 weeks now. I find peace of mind in written words.

  4. शब्द सदा जीवित रहते हैं ... कालजयी होते हैं रह जाते हैं इस भ्रह्मांड में ...
    और शब्द माँ सरस्वती की कृपा से ही मिलते हैं ... बसंत पंचमी की हार्दिक बधाई ...
