Insanely sane… Surviving qualmless.

Insanely sane… Surviving qualmless.
I'm not a perfect person, But I never meant to do those things; And so I have to say before I go, That I just want myself to know. I've found out a reason for me,; To change who I used to be A reason to start over new, and the reason is you. I've found a reason to show, A side of me you didn't know; A reason for all that I do, Before I let you go...

Is it my You?

Twisting and turning

Sleepless in bed

As the night mocks past

The haunting hours

You creep by me

As I fight over darkness


Sweet memories undaunted linger

As molten dreams rain unhindered

Solace had your return been

When I rejoiced unseen

But you… was it you?

“My same you?”


You laughed, you talked

But my caresses, you recognized them not.

You were immersed in yourself

Me but some anonymous creature

You cared not to care

But you… was it you?

“My same you?”


The same eyes

The same lips, your brows

As they rose in frown

The large hands, the mole

Everything is you

But you… was it you?

“My same you?”


I am sore, I am through

Through with identifying you

It is you, my same you

The one before I lost you

I missed you

Now… it is you?

“My same you?”


But you are hers

How can you be my you?

You are you

But you are hers

You forsook me

You are hers

You are ‘you’

“But… you are not my “You”!”


  Sorry for sounding so low of late. I was not well for a few days contineously, guess that took a toll on my thoughts. Thanks for staying by me. I dint know that I had so many good friends by me! Thank you very much. :)

Please do read and comment on my efforts if you find this post popping up anywhere near you :P

Well written!

The YOU that we hold on to so tightly in others is sometimes not the real THEM. We paint a picture of someone the way we want, and then we get disappointed. Im speaking with experience :)

hello, Diya!

Thank you so much for the prayers!

I am feeling way better now and can do much more things now than earlier.

Though I am still recuperating, I guess it won't harm my recovery if I resume writing poems.

I like this poetry of yours, and at some points in my life I've been through those times you've depicted here.

Thats very true, too very you made me realize that! Itz in our world of dreams that our YOU is their and not in THEM! We just try to idealize them and get hurt.
