What's in a pseudonym?


Call a lady by any name,
I am sure she'll remain the same,
But as I have never seen you,
Your pseudonym is my only view.

I am apologizing in a way formal,
As I intrude into issues personal,
I just wanted you to be in my view,
As your poems refreshes me anew!

My request to you is humble,
And as I ask my voice fumble,
To maintain a pseudonym consistent,
With which I can reach you in an instant.

    Nice! The multiple identities that change and vanish is practical...for those who want to vanish. (Report) Reply

    @ Ms. Indira Babbellapati:
    A poet changed her pseudonym & I almost lost track of her. I was just requesting her to maintain a single pseudonym so that I can keep track of her poetry. The digital world facilitates innumerable changes to be done on our profiles & we lose track after sometime. That's why. (Report) Reply
