RIP Robin Williams

Updated on August 14, 2014

Robbie my friend.

Robbie, why?

In misery we trust

In failure we thrive

In desperation we live

In woes we enjoy.

A sad existence we believe

In hopelessness we lose

Everything, everywhere, every essence, every meaning.

We have a face for the world, but the world never knows our inner turmoil,

The daily defeats, the regular nothingness, the greater absurdity of being alive

And striving day in and night out to be something that we are not.

And it will take its toll one day,

The day hopelessness and facade will take over the charade of living

The emptiness will possess the soul and the demons of parting will slowly encompass the being,

Of being the Bicentennial Man or Mrs. Doubtfire and the utopia of being a member of The Dead Poets Society,

Rest in Peace Robbie, wherever you are!

I could always see the pain in your guffaws and the hollowness in your laugh,

The eyes that betrayed your inner self and revealed the pain inside that I could understand,

For I am there and have always been there in your anguish, sorrow, mimicry and empathy.

Be there Robbie, just you wait for me. Rest until then wherever you are.

      Thanks Peach. He was indeed a wonderful guy. The best thing I liked about him was his eyes that held some innocence within.

      Thanks Audrey, thanks gjcody for your appreciation. I loved his movies, but somehow knew something hurt him deeply inside all the time. His smiles and laughs were always hollow. There was something in his eyes as well that made us feel protective of him and reach out.

      Just a very sad loss of a great man. Had his own way about everything he said and did can only know that he did it his way right to the end ...sadly missed ...good tribute.

      Thank you for this beautiful, poignant tribute to a man who gave the world so much laughter while suffering in silence.

      Sometimes people take up a career in comedy to hide their pain behind a mask of mirth. Robin Williams could have been one of these people. Great hub!

      Wonderful writing Dip Mtra. This is a very good tribute to a great but troubled human being. I also wrote a poetic tribute to him "A Clown's Disguise". Voted up.
