The dark world camouflaged by all the bright lights
I could see no more; you let my heart seethe.
The poem is a combination of multiple poetic forms and techniques. It is a Sonnet where first half is an Ode(rhyme – ABBA CCDD) , second half is an Elegy (rhyme – ABC ABC) using poetic devices like Apostrophe, Enumeratio, Metaphor,Epistrophe, and Chiasmus.
The above piece is a Concrete Poetry Or Shape Poetrywhere the poem is written in such a way so as to create the shape of the theme of the poem. I tried to make it look like a PENCIL, – Theme of the poem.. but ..am sorry, I could only convince you to believe me, it is! 😀
This is the first time I’ve tried something like this. Pardon me for the poor image. Will try to make a better piece next time! 🙂
I’ve also used the poetry writing technique – Enjambment
Electronics, medicine, architecture, biology and many umpteen branches
Connecting loved ones from every nook and corner
Helping people for a better life
‘New’ is the vital – fundamental characteristic
Opening wide windows of opportunities
Logistics and analytics are the first cousins
Over million years old, with a zillion versions of upgrades
Getting better each day, inscribing a history – carving the future
Yachting its way into other planets and galaxies.
– The Modern Tree
The above piece is my first Acrostic – The first letters of each sentence forms a word – TECHNOLOGY which is also the theme of the poem. Hope you all enjoyed it. Feel free to leave your comments below! 🙂

A few days ago I wrote about The So-Called Best Friends – the ones who stay with you when they are in need and vanish when you are in trouble. Today, I realised I must write about the blood sucking leeches – the ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend or an ex-friend, who won’t let you move on nor let you live the moment.
How many ever times you try to pull them out of your life and throw them away, some how or the other they crawl back into your life and stick to you until you get sick of them and destroy their very existence in your memory completely – just like the blood sucking Leeches!
If you have had a healthy break up, where you both have a clear understanding of why it may not work between the two of you; well you are safe and sound. But most people aren’t matured enough, are they? Being young and confused is only a part of growing up.
Although I thought that talking to the ex is not a bad idea because we broke up 2 years ago, my intuition told me I was wrong. When the ex pinged me (which was totally out of the blue) I was excited, really happy! But the truth is the leech that I threw a long time ago had just crawled back to my doorstep.
Here is why:
The leech-like ex’s don’t want to patch up or re-kindle the relationship. They know it won’t work at all, so do you. Yet, they can’t let you go, and so they text you or call you and do all the sweet talks like : “I thought we could be friends..“or “I don’t want ‘us’ to end in bad terms..without talking or meeting..” and “What we had was special, it means a lot to me..” etc..
When they ping you, your heart goes “aaaawww” but actually, it should be “eeewww yuck”. Especially when the other person is egoistic, self-centered, ____________.
You are not even an entry in their priority list. You are just an option, more like an unused unnecessary back-up for their insecurity.
Talking to them would only make you feel low, sad and insecure. You will be lost in the nostalgic-limbo.
Thanks to my best friend, she made me think twice, see the truth and confront it and put a full stop to it. I believe it is now my turn to help others.
So, the next time your ex pings you, remember all the reasons why you ended it in the first place. If they happen to say the words mentioned here, then ask yourself
“Do I really have to stick to this unnecessary sickening nostalgic limbo of unhealthy thoughts and useless memories?”
Ask all the right and wrong questions. After all it is your life and you deserve to play it the way you like it.
