I want to shatter
Hit the floor hard
Breaking into a thousand pieces
The trivials I'm made of
Let loose...

A shrill loud
In dampened silence around
A flash strong
In dull skies.

Walking out of the crowd
Reach at a point
Where identities warp;

Strike the strings.

@ Nalini ma'm:
Thank you so much. Really encouraging for me. :)

@ Divya:
Ya I do write abt my inspiration from time to time. The debut poem, Versifying my Life, Brat, Daughter, Me verses You are some of the poetries abt my muses who've inspired me-the driving forces. I guess that is what you meant. Isn't it?

@ Thousif:
Thank you So Muchh.!! :)

@ Tulsyan:
Are u practising hyperbole these days? You are immensely kind wen it comes to praising me. Thanks a lot! :)

@ The West Wind:

Your desire to breakaway from the bondage is clearly portrayed in your words.Just make sure you choose the right kind of freedom! Kidding, excellent poem, Tulika.

PRIYALA said...

Long time! Finally I'm catching up. I love these lines the most-

"Walking out of the crowd
Reach at a point
Where identities warp..."

^This shows how much of an 'individual' you are. I think the purpose of out little lives lies only in this concept of being 'individual' and unique. This can't be taught but only discovered... by being self-aware.
It's good to see you heading in the right direction. :)
