Poetry… but why ?

What inspires my poetry..?

What does it mean to me.. ?

“It is the humming of a soul

a soul full of emotions 

emotions, often hidden

hidden like desires with deeper longing

longings that have been swept away

away into deep hearts, deeper than the ocean.

Poetry is someone’s feelings, 

feelings which are covert.

Covert like the heartbeats,

heartbeats full of a thousand stories.

Stories full of memories,

memories of love, sadness and euphoria.

Poetry is an incomplete song

a song for the world to comprehend.

It may evoke an experience 

sometimes notional sometimes semantic.

Yet , it is not everyone’s cup of tea

It is the rhythm of the misunderstood.

It is the calling of the introverts. 

It is the pulse of a dreamer.

a metaphor through a mirror.

a silent prayer to the divine.”
