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.”
