silent SCREAM

i lie asleep curled up in my bed
comfortably numb

no worries
no problems
no apprehensions
the embodiment of life
a symbol of love

i eat
i breathe
i dream
lost in a reverie

SUDDENLY
something jabs at my side
i scream in pain
SILENTLY
a rude awakening
needles poking at me
a knife cuts through my soul
BLEEDING ME
i send up a sigh to the skies

people say that an unborn child goes straight to heaven

hey manoj,
poetry is supposed to be read with your legs up, a cuppa fluid and your backside resting happily on terra firma... maybe that would help... so sunil please go ahead and write and don't let creatively challenged folks b(l)og you down

Home
(by The Poet)

It was not dark
It was not bright
I sat alone in wonder

All that I saw was new
Not a sight warm to my eye
Not a speck igniting my mind
All around me strangers
I felt alone

And when I felt that
I felt scared

I made not a change to all this
Not a word i spoke
A thought I thought
would ever touch that around me
I did not matter
And that scared me

This is not home
Yes, my home had the mountains,
The river, the trees, the chirps
But back at home
They were somehow warm
More real

Here they seem an illusion
Lifeless, devoid of thought

Not a sight warm to my eye
Not a speck igniting my mind

And when i felt that
I felt I wanted to write

The poet I am, i began
I looked around me, and i smiled

The mountain
The river, the trees, the chirps
Are alien to me, I wrote
I, a stranger
Out of place, out of home

And when i wrote this
I suddenly felt
warm

I stopped to look around
At the strangers

Only now, every sight warm to my eye
every speck burning my mind

And i laughed
Like a child

For I was home.

I, a poet
The poem, my home!

Impressive Jimmy!
Never knew you've such a creative streak on the Literary side too..


Empty Spaces

In my mind,
If i go far enough
I can see

Empty spaces...

No wires or cables,
To cut across my thoughts.
No dug up roads with signboards,
Offer me directions and choices.


In my mind,
If i stay long enough
I can feel

The empty spaces...

No promises reverberate against ceilings.
No doors that keep closing.
Making me lose all hope in life.


In my mind
All i have, are
Empty spaces...

For,
I am not lost..............
