Cut Off!


A cut off I feel from everyone.
May be I don't want to listen.
May be I don't want to see.
May be I don't want to hear.
May be I don't want to face the world again!

A fear struck in me,
Don't know when a bow,
Will pierce my heart.
A fear gripped me,
Today, I fear everyone.
All my boldness drained away from me along with the flow of water.
May be I don't want to face the world again!

A blanket of darkness gripped me from all sides,
I feel like to be silenced as my brain stopped thinking,
It stopped moving further.

I am silent as my,
Brain on strike,
My mind on strike,
Heart stopped speaking to, well its on strike too,

All singing in chorus...
A cut off or a silence is required from everything and everyone.
A slight cut off from speaking to all, that's all!

    Our moods cannot be steady all the time! Sometimes, there comes an urge to withdraw form eveything and everyone! I feel this is only a fleeting phase! This dullness is not cosistent with your boisterous spirits, Geetha! A poignant write! (Report) Reply

    It sounds like a bad hair day to me. We all have to withdraw from life from time to time. Good poem though. (Report) Reply

    Sometimes it is good to be a cut off
    Live briefly in darkness and silence
    Then rebound at critics to scoff
    With greater creativity's essence........


    Good poem and keep writing............ (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
