Magic Box

Rookie - 0 Points (September 3,1992)


Life has moved forward,
Time turned to five seasons,
But I stand here still.

Here in this old attic,
With this half torn,
Yellow page from my diary,
Held in my heart!

Letters scrambled, yet!
Has a shade of a golden ink,
Over the edge of
Old blank inkpen's vomit,
Spread into million dots!
By tears fallen from eyes!

But now I share a laugh,
With that unrealistic,
First ever poem of mine!

The clash of faith,
And unknown reasons to end!
Mistakes are bound to happen
Aren't they?

In the flames of passion,
I am burning it now,
Let it light my thoughts,
Let it show way,
To a new write,
May be a better one!

Yet a blue spark came from it,
And I heard a small cry!
After all, It was alive!

    My dear Honorable Poet Magic Box seems to me that you have worked a miracle
    (no magic) with this brilliantly written poem of optimism. This has really light up
    my life and makes me want to just keeping on making giant steps. You have
    written a very encouraging poem (smile) on Recovery. It can be painful but well
    worth the effort in the end. Inspiring and very well crafted. (Report) Reply

    Aha! great notes of optimism and winged expectations from a poet given to pessimistic over tunes otherwise. Aswath, let this recovery be final and I hope another spell of dejection will not afflict you very soon.

    Poetry becomes a great device for reading human thoughts when you can use it in different ways and your ability to do so is a fine trait of your integrity and originality, Aswath.. (Report) Reply
