Poet In Exile - Poem by Seema Jayaraman

Miserable, wallowing in self pity
I while my few moments of silence
Watching the city lights whisk by
Marvelling at the pangs, reclined
want of a pen, some paper
Or the more familiar keboard
All for the paucity self defined
A twenty four hour day bound
Eighteen waking hours unwind
Chasing life's wants and demands
Six hours to sleep consigned
The writer inside, in exile
Living a life of self denial
Helpless stands by, watching
Tides of thoughts ebb and flow
Erased the faint scrawls
Scratched on sands of mind

    Yes Wes, most of my muse is while commuting, and as these words ebb and flow and fade I watch helplessly wanting a pen or a keyboard to quickly capture..happy you enjoyed.
