Lamentation: Writing

Updated on January 7, 2016
Lamentation can happen even when you're surrounded by myriads of people.

As I scrawl in my notebook
and type in my phone
or in my computer,
I lament my inability to locate my thoughts
creating assumptions instead of pinpointing them
laying it in abstract form - almost meaningless.

Writing is everyone's business nowadays
I'm not special, knowing how to hit 'Enter' every few words
the world has changed and it may
or may not have been for the better

And
I am
nothing but a body composed of bones
filled with the blood of unfinished poems
and tissues of unwritten fantasies
not put down on paper
because of lack of a talent that can sustain
this dream in me
put down in air
like all my hope that will be gone
without even blinking an eye
for it simply wasn't there

But
I'm going to try still
For my words, letters, verses
which may or may not be special
are all I have.

      Beautiful.

      I too started with this dilemma of being accepted or not. But the passion and urge are two force majeure that drives us irrespective of acceptance. That shows and then there is no looking back.
