The Enigma of My Mind


The subtle loneliness that hath,
Built its walls were crumbling,
As I ventured into that path
Of needs and belonging.
Those harsh realities were
Mellowed by sparks of care,
And those unspoken fears
Doused by happy tears.
But now the question that troubles me is
Will this be a long lived bliss?

    A fine poem that discusses a state of mind inevitably arising out of a strategic outlook.. The rendering too is fine. I feel that you may better replace 'hath' by 'has' as a lone odd word has nothing to do with the ensuing lines.. It is up to you Avinash.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
