Saree Patterned Carpet

I was sitting in the back of the room, amused and hiding under the brim of everyone’s noes typing up a journal entry. I was typing away loudly but no one would bat an eye my way. I was swimming in my thoughts when I heard laughter, I looked up and the drunk lovelies were dying at some joke. I liked it this way. Being outside of the circle but close enough to enjoy the warm heat waves. I had grown used to this crevice in the shape, enjoying the ropes by myself, content with sitting in my own thoughts. I had accepted that the next few years of my life would be a season of loneliness on this Earth. My only close companion would be the Lord and my few family members. At this point in my life, I was only earnestly close to my grandmother and six friends I had made in college. Right as I was remembering this thought, he looked up at me. Even with his removed mind, he saw me. I winked at him and he went back to the debauchery in the room.


An Abridged Arrow

to gain substance above all else, but how?

to capture an audience from then until now…

meanwhile I keep myself entertained by my own unraveling,

I’m supposed to find a groove yet my mind keeps traveling.

Do you hear the white noise? Can you distinguish it from the substance?

Do you see the clarity amongst a blurry afternoon…

Sorry, too soon.

walking further from a familiar place I feel more, well, me.

I know it sounds strange but to walk unassumingly is free.

There are no rules except one,

never be plane- always be fun.

to capture an audience, to strike straight from the heart,

is to openly tear yourself apart.

I don’t think we can really achieve any character but our own.

Successfully, at least.

Bang the piano! Scoff at the cat!

Enter the room! Throw on a hat!

Accept that the audience might not find you endearing,

but strive to be graceful, kind, and God-fearing.

Don’t worry much about the how or the then or the now…

but the substance, worry about the substance.

Ask yourself what kind entity you’d like to harvest…

So , what will it be? Poison or elixir?
