    .. bout a piece of paper (lol) that takes in everything we say, lies, sadness, without complaining.. i just ask it to give a message.. actully, it gets blown away for the same purpose.. i must say its wretched, due not to its, but my own, fault..
    \m/


    It was blank, dry and silken white;
    blew away with the slightest gust of wind,
    and with the solitary thought that makes our day,
    it tries to grab on, to hold on, to stay.

    So it said whatever was told to it,
    shown the thoughts that others behold.
    And still written away with undue anger,
    and the visions of the dark foretold.

    I lift my quill and place a thought,
    a sulking sigh in a well of noughts.
    And try to laugh, I know I spent
    my darkness onto you, and I lied.
    I lied again, but you remained,
    a lively joy, a worthy friend,
    a mirror, that cast the truer face,
    and never cared, if ever I offend.

    And all my thoughts lead to my ways,
    even those I ventured long before.
    Some lay replete, some stay incomplete,
    and still I long for more.
    And I hope this wretched piece of paper,
    repeats the words it speaks of you.
    Ever it finds you downed in your path,
    I know it'll always see you through.

    Its amazing how we often neglect something as small and unsignificant as "a piece of paper" and yet how much importance it holds in doing what we desire the most at certain time, be it passing a message, be it saving our memories.

    Very well expressed horsesmouth (right this time). Poems like these potraits the depth of undestanding and presenting the simplest of things in artistic form.

    @ monica ... you are not dumb, but I guess just not into it. Wait for sometime, you will get it. (wasn't rude this time, sachi)

    How are you mad...er...mon...hehe :p
    I am alive...right now I'm a supply chain engineer working my way up the american dream, ergo, filling corporate pockets with the money they need.
    But here, barely. I visit sometimes, flying over this barren landscape, sometimes wondering if the damage to the forums have been total.
    This place is a graveyard for forgotten emotions and I prefer to leave the dead buried. If you read all my poems in order of which I wrote them, they are basically my autobiography, which I'm not really proud of. This one was meant for a girl I liked long long long back, who didn't even care. Most of them are for girls anyway... ;) You know how they evoke the poet in you...:D
