Contradiction




Wherever I go
I find you staring
Back at me
My own reflection

The eyes- effeminate,
moist, but sparkling,
Accusing nonetheless
Of crimes unnerving.

It's not easy
To hold it all in
The emotions that are
All bottled within

A trifle too good
I am, I'm sure
At concealing it all
Pretending I don't care.

Lest you say
I forgot you, my dear
Do understand-
I'm not what I appear

Lovely... lovely poem.

Awesomeness. We are all pretenders.

'A man always lies when he is his true self. Give him a mask, and he'll tell you the truth'.

We totally are. And I certainly am... no qualms about it either. :-)

@ Amith

Mahesh Sindbandge said...

First of all that picture is vry nice...

You must have given credits tot eh person who created it :-P

I liked the poem and morely the flow of thoughts from this end to that end.
We many times copntradict with our selves, but we do take it very rarely.

Cheers
Mahesh

Contradiction / Kontradiction
Another marvel Kreation form Kriti

Creation said...

@ Amith

Sahi hai.. Mr. muh-miyan-mitthu! :P

Creation said...

@ Mahesh

Welcome!!

I've had that picture for a long time and I don't know where I got it from. Lest I would've definitely credited the creator/owner.

Well, it was one of those rare times where the contradiction is too apparent to go unnoticed.

Thanks for visiting
Cheers!

Creation said...

@ Isha

You didn't write AwSM?
Lolz!! Guess it's not contagious.. yet!!

Thank you for liking the poem!!

ShantanuDas said...

The poem must be good... cannot comment as I am not a poet.. but was thinking do ghosts have reflections??

Creation said...

@ Ani

The irony is that we are are what we pretend to be. So we must be careful what we pretend to be.

:-)

Creation said...

@ Tabitha

Wowieee...
Glad to be of servie, ma'am.

I still have to read your post. Sheyt!!

Loved the template, btw! :-D

Creation said...

@ Abhijeet

Thank you!
You always praise me. Mind being a critic once? Just once, please?
:-)

C R D said...

awesome poem

When you're forced to behave like someone tht's not really you, even your mirror deceives you

Creation said...

@ Chris
Thanks!

I beg to differ. What can a poor mirror do when it is you who's hell bent on decieveing everyone. It just shows you what it sees.

As Sylvia Plath's mirror spoke-
"I am silver and exact. I have no preconceptions.
Whatever I see I swallow immediately
Just as it is, unmisted by love or dislike.
I am not cruel, only truthful ‚
The eye of a little god, four-cornered."

:-)

Raunaq said...

hey....hey....hey

whoa....its amazing yaar!!!

(2:14 a.m.)

Creation said...

@ Raunaq

Thanks! A lot of people failed to get eidolon, you weren't the only one. But I'm glad you understood this one.:-)

You remembered that bit of information about my school Surprising!
Hope your exams went well. Have a great time. Enjoy your vacations. :-D

ani_aset said...

My point is life would be simple if stop pretending and show our good inner self..because then we will not have to make any effort to pretend..and we will just BE. :)

Creation said...

@ Ani

Ah, yes! Now that is one ideal state, I'm sure, one tries hard to achieve.

Raunaq said...

Thanks a lot!!Actually i really possesses an extraordinary memory power....hahaha :-)

Vacation is finally overs.Today i will land in Kochi n from tomorrow as usual boring colez classes. :(

Have a great sunday!!
Enjoy. :-)

Prakhar said...

Mysteriously beautiful!

It felt like everything is not revealed yet..there is more to it..still concealing :)

Creation said...

@ Prakhar

Wow! Thanks!

I guess the next post might reveal all that or perhaps reduce the beauty of this one.

Keep watching !:P
