A Self Pat! Poem by sreelekha premjit

A Self Pat!

Rating: 4.5

I walk the skies
sip in the air
jump the roads
pluck hopes.

I thrive on sorrows
enjoy despair
chuckle at challenges
gather broken hearts.

I wallow in ignorance
swallow pride easily
wink away hurt
weave purple coated dreams.

I feign polite indifference
when scorned
smile secretly at such foolhardy
hope to charm in time.

I relish myself
treat me to pleasures of love
send secret sms to my heart
search joy in dark secrets.

Read these eyes
watch out for joy
If you look for sorrow
beware of being fooled.

liked the crispiness of this one. the short sentences and the pace were fun. but why the question mark at the end of your title 'self pat? '.
