In my head



He is
an open book;
but the pages,
are blank.

and I;
I always thought,
that I,
could read them all.

16 smoke wisps:

In that case, you could have tried to fill those pages with your beautiful words, and I am sure you did :)

Meghana Naidu said...

oh.
i did, but that's all they were 'my words'
the pages are still blank.

"I always thought,

Wow! Extremely profound!

Meghana Naidu said...

@unsung: Thank you.

and your pseudonym is so intriguing!

Orange said...

Hmm. I have some difficulty understanding what you're saying.

I was expecting:

He is
an open book,
and the pages
are full
of words
that I cannot read

but I,
I always thought,
that I,
could read them all.

I can't write poetry or comprehend it, for the life of me.

I love this. (as usual?) I love this.
Not sure why.

DPhatsez said...

for an open book there are far too less words. How many marks did you get for this assignment? :D

Meghana Naidu said...

@orange: if there "were" words, one can at least try,

but if the pages are blank,
what then?
what can you do?

its like trying to find meaning in a empty painting.

Meghana Naidu said...

@M
girl i almost dont want you to love it, because to love it you need to understand what it feels like :|
*sigh
this June is turning out to be morose, innit?

Meghana Naidu said...

@DP: i flunked out. :| disgusting, i know.

but i'm thinking of giving him a typewriter for his birthday, so maybe there's still hope for me !!! :D

Meghana. Brilliant.

Meghana Naidu said...

@meandering mind: Thank you. always nice to hear that. :)

Mirrored Minds said...

An empty open book, you have,
which you can still try to reach.
Worse yet, is a filled tome,
that you know you can never read.

Excellent piece of work though :)

I thought I'd left a comment here...
Anyhow, I'll repeat myself

This is a masterpiece. I'm not half qualified to say it, but I'll say it all the same- This is extreme maturity.
The indirect expression (left unuttered) that lies beneath the layer of the more obvious (though equally significant) expression is what makes these lines so priceless.

Much love,
Chinmayee.

@kavya

true ;) i love it when my thoughts trigger a chain reaction!

thank you :)

Meghana Naidu said...

@chinmayee

im surprised at how accurately you caught the essence of it all,
minimalism is never my thing, im as eloquent as they come
but here, nothing more is necessary i felt.

*Thank you*
