Dilemma

Not my usual way of writing. I hope this turns out to be okay.

___________________________________________

In middle of an argument the poet left one day. He was certain that he is better on his own and needs nobody to be content. He left the garden of poppies, went to Amazon, sahara and Everest. He was delighted at the thought of living his life to the fullest and converted his pain into art, wrote a lot of books and was really well liked.

On the other hand when he left, poem was shattered, but she decided to live, as she is the sole reason for a poet to live. She was certain that the poet will come back but after some time she gave up on hope and broke down in abrupt stanzas. She still is beautiful because words never lose their magic, but now she don’t know how to rhythm anymore. Art knew she was fine, as there were no cuts and bruises on her wrist and elbows.

One day poet realized that he can never escape the poem. Where ever he went, she was with him. Poem was his only source of inspiration and the soul of his words. He decided to go back.

When poet came, poem knew the way a poet cannot escape a poem, the poem can never abandon a poet too. Poem was delighted to see him but realized she no more belongs to anyone. She was a barbarian now and have become very dangerous. She still loves the poet but cannot commit to him. What should the poem do now?

  1. What should the poem do?

    Art or Love, everything need to pass through different stages of life and experiences. It evolves and matures the core of everything. Then like a beautiful butterfly out of its cocoon…it mesmerises everyone.

    But …
    If we look at it’s past that it’s an ugly Caterpillar, the joy is lost. If we love to see it fly, it will be beautiful.

    The poem might have turned barbaric, but it is still a poem. A different one, unique, and it will still be beautiful…for the poet.

  2. Very inspirational and introspective. What do we try to leave in life that is such a part of us that we can’t? Nor should we. Because if we do, we try to abandon what makes us – US. The question for everyone in this life. Excellent peace!!!
