Contemplating L.i.f.e
Author: SweetVenom


As I sit staring at my desktop,
Thinking where do I belong,
I feel cold breeze swooping me,
And I find myself on a hill top.

The creative brain never rests,
Accomplishments are never credited,
Unsatisfied eyes search for contentment,
And they never close until the heart stops.

With the wild ocean roaring beneath,
While dew drops sail in the wind,
Trying to reassure the dying roses,
That they would not be a part of the heath.

Easy to fall in love with an unknown angel,
But it is hard to know that she is already taken,
Injured heart never rests in peace,
‘Will she be mine’, is what it pleads.

Counting days to see the loved ones,
Am I imprisoned in my own strong heart?
Procrastinating the homecoming,
I led myself to miss all the fun.

As I turn around, I see the green grass,
With black clouds covering the land,
And the bees buzzing around my ears,
I walk back the way I had come,
Still contemplating L.I.F.E.

------- Author's Notes -------

This could be yet another jumble of desultory lines but this is what went on my mind when I wrote this. I could never hide my feelings when it comes to writing.After all, it is where you write your mind. May feel obscure to many but it envelops me and each lines mean a lot than written. If you could get something out of this then I do communicate well :-).
At times, we do find ourselves in a standstill situation, not knowning what we intend to do further in life,where are we heading and what we need and want. I am caught up in that kind of a situation and just wanted to capture my past and present.Thanks for reading!

I can find a deep meaning in each line, albeit my interpretation may not be exactly wht u intend to communicate. Maybe I understand becos I have "been there and done that"...infact it is an ongoing process...cheers mate, well expressed!
