2. The Good Ol’ Ink

That first splash of colors on the crisp white sheet,
Childhood rejoicing in the effortless drill,
Innocence driving the ambitious & pretty quill,
Let’s draw something we could simply write,
Let’s write what we could simply sketch,
The plain pleasure of owning a piece of art,
Oh! you thing of a past…

Pair of eyes which inspire you,
Set of palms which bless you endlessly,
A warm embrace found in a cup,
The night which lit up the lust in you
through the moon across the sky,
How the small pleasures touch us inevitably,
How we not fear of them being stolen,
The amicable joy of being in our skin,
Oh! you thing of a past…


Your love for stationery, don’t let it be stationary,
Let the imagination walk its way on the paper ramp,
A minute of fame, a decade to stay,
That feeling of being closer yet away,
The bittersweet experience which paves your day,
Oh! you thing of a past,
Oh! you thing of a present,
Oh! you thing of my very own future…

Writing my way this entire month of November with #NaBloPoMo. Are you? πŸ™‚

    Oh, you thing of the past
    Such sheer brilliance in words that lay still
    Moving and a heart felt embrace
    Oh, you thing of a poet.

    P.S. This is stupid, I know. But I guess you got the gist.

    You have taken that feeling of the joy of creating something and put it in words. Also the feeling of watching it grow and shine.

    A warm embrace found in a cup, really love this line.
    You’re moody, like your space and are extremely sensitive, is what your handwriting tells me:)

      The sensitive bit, bang on, moody might be but flexible. πŸ™‚ Thanks for reading and commenting, Mayuri.
