[Meme] : Untitled – Why should all poems be titled?? This poem does not conform to usual standards…!!

1 Feb

Long long ago, our dear own Megz had tagged this mere mortal to an awesome awesome meme both on the external and corporate blog portals. Both the blog-o-spheres were taken by a storm and everyone fell into the pool of abstraction and title-less poetry.

I am really late in taking up the meme. But, I guess, for Megz, it was a calculated risk that she tagged ME to take it further. And indeed it was with an intention of pumping life into this utterly dead blog. Your efforts have finally paid off Megz. It took me almost a month to be in this state when even Lindor truffles and Tim Horton’s hot chocolate do not seem to be doing a good job of mood elevators and here I am with my reckless bantering in abstraction…

Why does it rain, when it is dry inside?

Why does it pain, when it blossoms outside?

Why do I search for colors in the dark?

Why do my dreams make reality so stark?

Why do I avoid looking at the mirror?

Why do I smile pleasantly in a mysterious fear?

Why do I hum a tune not composed by anyone?

Why is the ruptured divinity of my heart left undone?

Why do I barter my deeds with fate, with a meek hope to win?

Why do I seek solace so soon, despite my self-pitied chagrin?

Why do I have broken walls around, which I try to mend?

Why do I always begin something, of which there is no end?

Why?

I wrote most of these couplets at different times and they mostly made their way into my empty head when I was making a genuine attempt to think about “myself” and the series of polluting agents that revolve around this word.

Well, now that I get a chance to pass on this abstraction bug to someone, I tag Borna to take this meme ahead. The rules are simple:-

> The TITLE of the post should be the same as above

> The tags should include poem-with-no-title

> The poem should preferably be just random thoughts and abstract-ish

      @ Megz
      //finally someone really really bothers to pick this up eh//– 😦 I am sorry for not taking it up earlier pal.The last month has been crazy at work and otherwise.
      //maaf bhi kar diyaa//–Mandal aabhaari ahe.
      // i can make out from the very lines how your stay onsite has been//–It has been an extremely demanding and a profoundly learning experience.Most of the couplets are an outcome of what I have observed about people around me and sometimes about the person within me. I am only thankful to you to have given me an opportunity to put it across in words.. though I dont think I have done a great job at that..
      Thanks once again Megz.
      Cheers!

    “Why do I avoid looking at the mirror” on “Through the looking glass”?? Paradoxical indeed…

    //Why do I barter my deeds with fate, with a meek hope to win?//
    Very profound… Guess, that’s when we ‘live’ and not just ‘survive’…

    //Why?//
    Aaaaaah.. The question that has evaded scientists and philosophers alike for ages, which nevertheless is an endless pursuit…

    Cheers!

      //Paradoxical indeed…//–He He.. 🙂
      //Guess, that’s when we ‘live’ and not just ’survive’//–Intellectual.I think it has also got to do with how we perceive living life at different age and stage.
      //which nevertheless is an endless pursuit…//–True.So true.An endless pursuit to see light at the other end of the tunnel,to see what hidden in the deep oceans,to see how one thinks and how one emotes.. It is all so intriguing and it is only human to be instigated for this quest.
      Your comments have always been encouraging and enriching and so is this one. Thanks a lot Ags. you so rOcK! 🙂

    Why does Himanshu have so many question when we have no answers?
    Why does Himanshu sport this mugshot on his blog when there are so many photos that make him look better?

    Why Why Why???

    Well… Life has a lot of questions. Sometimes it is just better not to find the answers and just go on and enjoy the moments as they come…

    Hey Buddy… Stay warm…
    btw – I am back online. (I hope for long)…

      @ Sai
      Is this for real?? (author pinching himself) The stunning Sai himself has graced this mere mortal’s blog? Am I elated or what!! :rolling eyes:

      //Why does Himanshu have so many question when we have no answers?// — Why does Sai ask questions when he has no answers (to my questions 😀 )
      //mugshot on his blog when there are so many photos that make him look better// — “mugshot”!!???? 👿 Grrrrr… It is an excellent picture and I have received compliments about it from people who rarely say anything good about me.. And now that you have criticized it, I will have to rethink.. :-/

      //not to find the answers and just go on and enjoy the moments as they come…// — Gyaan Sai Gyaan! How I missed the way you put things across so crisply..

      // I am back online. (I hope for long)…// — Yippiiie! I hope so too 🙂

      Thanks a bunch for stopping by Sai. I am truly obliged..
