Strange Feeling


A strange feeling comes in a strange way in a strange package
In a strange color in a strange structure with a strange feature
With a strange nature with a strange behavior
Inside me which I can feel but can't express
As it stands at a distance far away making me helpless.

It breaks in,
Before holding to mold
It goes out

I put a tricky trap
To catch but it tactfully traps the trap
And very fast catches me up.

But it never becomes my very own
Or leaves me to live peacefully alone

It has been doing what it does and doesn't change.
It does always derange me, what a strange?

    Yup sometimes we feel joyous other time are bound to nervous. We lament and act as demented fellows. Nevertheless, human-beings are made that way........ Truth glitters in the poem. Wahbji, well said....... (Report) Reply

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
