Cut Off! - Poem by Geetha Jayakumar

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
