Today is one more day when the soul
yearns out,
With feelings and thoughts unuttered,
unexpressed, -
Lying without a sound!
Flipping in and out through the conscious
As I try to write it out in verse and rhyme!
I finally pen down a line or two,
But it slowly moves out and slips through!
Leaving a blank page before me and you!
We all come with such a page from the world
of light,
To scribble out our story in prose or rhyme;
And slowly slither out into oblivious time!

    To scribble out our story in prose or rhyme;
    And slowly slither out into oblivious time!
    a creative expression of one's thought, sparkling ideas just comes out and sometimes being lost.....great poetic creation. (Report) Reply
