Red and Blue and Green and Pink

All would be just meaningless words

If not for you my precious gifts

Here’s to you, Cheers! A thank you drink!

.

Of Violets and Oranges in the lush Green lawn

Of Silver and Gold ornaments that people adorn

Life is so full of chromatic abundance

Here’s to you, Cheers! For a rustic persistence!

.

But….

.

You made me see all superficially

You made me blind with all the flashy lights

I could see no more of true colors underneath

.

My mind could see though not visually

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.

Hope you liked it!

To Err Is Human – Concrete Poetry / Shape Poetry

To Err Is Human
To Err Is Human

The above piece is a Concrete Poetry Or Shape Poetry where 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

The Modern Tree – Acrostic

The Modern Tree
The Modern Tree

Twenty First century’s tree of life

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! 🙂

Today In Short : #9 Exes – The Blood Sucking Leeches

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.

Exes - The Blood Sucking Leeches
Exes – The Blood Sucking Leeches

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.
