scribblings @ 1.30 am

.........

the days i fill with mindless madness
not letting my mind go idle.

but oh!! the cruel nights...
they force the cure
for insanity down my throat
making me long
for the not needed love.


PERSPECTIVES

the eighty year old palm reader
tut-tutted, looking at my hand.
a bad hand, said she.
a late marriage and no kids
was what she said was in store for me,
with her eyes going sad and
her lips mouthing sympathy.

but little did she know
that i wanted nothing more.

two different subjects seemingly connected by one common thread ! the second passage showing the two sides of a coin is neatly written .but when the weight of the first part falls on it , a tone of self-consolation seeps in ....
my instinct s that some day down the line your perspective ll take a turn !
