It is a Mad, Mad, Mad World.........

Moon is gone
but moonlight
shining silver in the night

youth is gone
but painted in the air
the pictures appear fair

tears are errors
mistakes of lesser understanding
fears are faithless mortals

life is a cycle
meetings are mere miracles
memories are pages revisited

identity is a false certificate
into thin air ends up the life
into one nothingness we go up

truth is beautifull
all beautifull things are ugly
when bared naked, they are not sweet and smiling

life is a lesson
ageing is the teacher
pains of physic are beatings
for forgetting home works
pains of heart are poor grades
in the exams where concentration fails

where do infinite parallells meet
everything is fine when meeting is not cheating
meeting to meet again
parting to part again
then meet we part
part we meet
life is going on and on
we are nothing, but dots of semi-gods.....

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
