Contradiction- construed.



There's no escaping it. There's no escaping you. No matter what I do, where I go, you always seem to find a way in.

Wherever I go
I find you staring
Back at me
My own reflection
The mocking smile, plastered all over your face. More like a Mona Lisa than a Cheshire cat. The spark in your eyes- alarming, intimidating.

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

You wanted me to shut up. I did that. So, why are forcing me to do this? Why do you want me to open the Pandora's box of emotions welled up inside me?
It is not easy
To hold it all in
The emotions, they are
All bottled within.
I don't know why you feel I ridicule you. True, my words sound malicious multiple times. But are you not intelligent enough to understand that I do not intend to hurt you?? But perhaps, it is not your fault at all. I'm a leettle too good at concealing it and concealing it well.
A trifle too good
I am, I'm aware,
At concealing it all
Pretending I don't care
And in the process of hiding from everyone, I seem to have lost myself. Completely. But,
Lest you say
I forgot you, my dear
Do understand-
I'm not what I appear.
The reason I ridicule you (for if that's what you still think) is to avoid the hushed whispers, the wiggle-waggle. 
Does that clear anything, Mr. Distorted Tube-lights?

Author's note: The poem posted earlier- Contradiction- was not a poem at all. It was all part of a small write-up, addressed to a certain someone. I had written it, yes... but I had never intended to actually post the entire thing here and I never intended to show it to anyone, either. Ironically, I have just done exactly that. Why? I don't know.

ermm...m i venturing into personal territory? coz this is sth that evades my underastanding...but nice poem to convey a message :)

I still love the poem so much so that it grabs all my attention.

One should seek inspiration in anything and everything. Often, people dont understand or dont want to, when we write something for someone. Same was the case with my 'lost in life'.

So be proud for you have written an awesome poem. And those who don't appreciate can___________

I guess, you are better at filling the blanks. :D :D

@ Ayushman

Well, now you know! :-)

@ Aniket

I sure am!

Certain people (Okay. It was just one person. No people.) had issues with classifying the poem. They wondered about the genre of the poem and well, they also felt that it cannot really be classified as poetry.

Now, my question to such people is just this- Why do you have to classify everything? Can't they just read it for what it is- a creation!

Well, I guess I've cleared their confusion by posting the entire thing.

'Lost in Life' wasn't appreciated?
Don't tell me!! I feel sad for the one who didn't like it.

P.S.: Love the new site... but feel sad for Melody of Dissonance. Don't abandon it, please.

The poem is truly beautiful, the lines in between are then a mere repetition

Creation said...

@ PHoenix

Which is why I had omitted the prose earlier. But 'somebody' did not quite understand it.

Aw.S.M said...

Oh..i m glad u clarified things. With the prose in tow, the poem seems much better now ( not that it wasnt good earlier :P)

I hope the someone this message was intended for, got it loud and clear.

Oye dont get too serious be..not kool

:D

luv
amith

Prakhar said...

ahh...now everything is revealed (it appears so)

"Mr. Distorted Tube-lights"...lol...can't blame him ...if he is tube-lights :D

It was this mystery that made the prose beautiful (I know m repeating my comments :) )...very well written!!

Creation said...

@ His Highness, The one and only- AwSM


Lol!! I guess after that address I don't really have to say anything now, do I? :P


I don't know if the someone got it or not.. I've been getting vague reactions wahan se.

Won't get serious.. pakka..
Kabhi kabhi ho jata hai.. cut me some slack! :P
