Adventure of Confused Mind

I want to write something
But words fail me to express
My sweet emotions
Full of bitter experience
I want to make a comparison
Between the two, but……
I don’t know
Which comes first?
Are these sweet emotions
That come out of bitter experience
Or vice versa
I can’t say
I am eager to find
But can never mind
Though it troubles me
Offers also a reason
To think of something
Which I had long forgotten
I want to think
I wish to drink
The pleasure of pain
Or the pain of pleasure
I dream but I can not sleep
I scream but I can not weep
I have a deep reason to cry
I desire but I can not fly
I want to write everything
But the feeling which comes is nothing.

    I have read some of your work with great interest.
    You have good ideas and express yourself well in this prose form.

    All writers go through a phase of confusion. I think, if you add a little discipline, in time you will write good poetry.

    Nothing is a stillness where the beauty exist.
    Confusion is a fun phase in a poetic life.
    keep going with good work. (Report) Reply

    this is typical of a passing stage each of us experience at some point of time but to give voice to it...well is simply great... (Report) Reply

    I'm sure every writer has felt that way before.
    I understand completely and sympathize.

    I dream but I can not sleep
    I scream but I can not weep
    this poem is very good, interesting and pleasure to read. you have wonderfully stated the inner state of mind, it is a true poetic venture.......

    one wants to do so much but fail in the endeavour terribly because of utter confusion...
    you have managed to arrange the confusion in order and expressed what we all feel time to time.
    well done keep it up...your lovely poem has driven away the confusion. (Report) Reply
