I Want To Be A Common Dumb Man Poem by Hardik Vaidya


I often wonder.
In awe and bewilderment.
Like a child with eyes wide.
What is the method of madness?
The soul is it my mask?
Because it reeks of your perfumed bust.
How do I peel it off me?
How can I rip it off?
And turn into an ordinary toad.

    I like the reverse nature of this poem. With the sense to return to simplicity an interesting concept. Well done. (Report) Reply
