wise-foolery : 2

set in a corner, a cot..that creaks
with each move..of the imperfect spine
- silent, curved –
kept away sleep,
to grab and seal..each passing second.
some wish woven into sleeplessness,
and the view from the side,
still waiting – for perfection.

It doesn’t come by easy.

to sit with pain,
without moving to hide it,
or wanting to fix it,
in the smaller part of a room..adorned
- a make-shift curtain -
by which, feelings that made living with oneself
difficult..were felt.

Almost lived.

the music that surges past emotion
– endearing in its strangeness –
still plays on.
the same cot, new sheets..creaks still.
even the stars that show up in the sky
every other night aren’t the same..twice.

But at least they seem so. Once in a while, they do.

    and it’s difficult to keep the frail curtain from falling..every spell of breeze tugs at it – alluring with its pleasant touch, almost touch-and-go…

    how can one ignore for long that there’s never anyone on the other side :)

    curtains…iron or satin,
    sketches of one that lives within
    as the gentle breeze laps, the satin sways & melts…
    like the tide, on the clayed bank…
    Some holds & some let it go…
    some still lives & some just learn to flow…

    would be a pleasure indeed to be in some sort of a loop..

    Its amazing that we all want individual space and unchained existence… And when we do get it we yearn to be tied again..
    Its one of those ironies that breath longer than life
