Shhhh...

It's quiet. Very quiet
I breathe in the silence
No one speaks
There's no one here
Just my thoughts
And me, bored
In my fishbowl existence

I speak up - Let's talk
They all join in
Turn up the volume please
Everyone has to be heard
My solitary fishbowl
Now my populated ocean
And my cacophonic claustrophobia

Rewind.

Stop.

Play.

Fail.

Cry.

Sangitha said...

I enjoy reading abstract poems.. and this one joins the list..!!
It reminds me one of a poem i wrote in office out of boredom.. Ha..sometimes boredom brings out the best in ppl.. :-D

Count Sneaky said...

Nice writing here.You might think of it this way. Awareness is pure consciousness. It is the fishbowl into which the goldfish of thought is dropped into at birth. Thought seems,unfortunately, have some determinism built in.We must be taught to fear and hate, but we all will kill and make war collectively and individually when we feel threatened These thoughts in our head come from a place unknown and we do not have to follow them except to do good to another.The thoughts that embarrass and amaze us can only be assumed to be a connection to that vast sea of the unconscious mind. You have a very interesting blog

Shanu said...

Wonders how she missed reading something as awesome as this

Anyhoo, better late than never.

V V deep I must say. So unlike you Mindey. You somehow come across as a happy go lucky kinda guy(uncle??) but posts like these..make me wonder!
