Did your shoulders fail to hold the sky? Or the weight of your caliginous dreams were too high? Was it lack of daily hunt Or the tired heart brunt?
What made you die? How did you die?
Media reported of cold weather Was it the heart that turned cold seeing your starved kids eye Or was it after your dying wife? Or was it the cold feet that turned down the rope thinking about the possible bright sky?
The endless battles you fought For a piece of bread, The battles you fought To keep the head high in the room of men The battles you fought With an uncomplaining heart
The battles you fought waiting for A Lily to bloom in a sticky mud bath
Until the trees turn leafless And hearts turn bare Until the art stiffened Until you were dead!
Yet, the question remains how did you die, oh poor man?
the_speccy_outsiderThe rhetoric in the end is powerful. A scintillating piece that speaks about a critical issue and how it is often ignored. Something that should get the much needed sympathy and sensitivity.
forestbornYou're being missed. Words tell to hold onto hope. January reminds of a lost poet. Summer is one feet away. Pathetic rhymes are dying. Don't bring me plastic smiles. Rain is all that need, an autumn of poetry to end the drought.
raghavendran@sou_scribbles_ Love is a strange emotion and feeling that at once tortures and pleases one struck by Cupid's dart. Pain and pleasure remains intermingled in the heart of Cupid's victim. Well written.
_create_23My goodness!! This is sachmein waala sachmein a masterpiece. I can't tell you how much I loved it. I mean putting the birth of dawn into words like THIS..wow!! I wasn't able to catch up at first so I read it again and what a beautiful piece it is. When I see each of us growing with our works, it makes me so happy.

_create_23@sou_scribbles_ I think they were my true feelings and instant reactions, that is why. I type things which I actually would have said most of the times just the tone is missing, baaki all is here with no filter.
