A Missing Chord

Of its existence, I am acutely aware
It for sure is - here, there, somewhere
The missing violin from a maestro’s symphony
In its absence, clear thoughts - sheer blasphemy.

How elusive and deceptive you are! !
Door shut – yet seeming ajar
So close, yet you keep your distance
Vivid for a flash, gone in evanescence.

Your unique singularity
Routinely testing sanity
Dyslexic perception, thoughts plagued by confusion
Reality or myth in a plethora of disinformation?

I do know you but, only by definition
A featureless face, without recognition.

“TRUTH”, exploited – yet pristine, is thy name
Your knowledge, the world does claim
What about the wise men who preach in your name?
A grand façade – can’t spot a micron in a macro frame.

You are the missing voice in the choir – ‘The Alto”
Make us believe to be wizards – always “Post Facto”.

Predictably, my predicament is the cause of your mirth
“Yet you make life worth living for – ever since your birth”.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Misconceptions rule our lives having being misled up the garden path by people I call as 'deceivers'. Religion is a most glaring example. 'Do this or if you don't - you'll land up in hell' is the common refrain. I think one must discover his/her own truth & not accept each statement as gospel.

    I love the approach you take to something insubstantial.
    Very deep.
    But truth is not something you throw about like on a dice board.
    Well done

    religion must be like a sun, you believe in it not because its there but because of it you can see everything....a thought provoking piece written by a brilliant poet
