a peep into my feverish mind










boundless hope
unbridled desires
untamed passion
fervent prayers

primal needs
basic wants
ardent longings
urgent cravings

sharp pangs of hunger
parched throat thirst
and then this great urge
a deep inexplicable yearning

so many thoughts
swirl around in my mind
but i ride an ocean of calm.

normally i have no taste in poems..but i like a limerick or two...probably becoz of my lack of class...but this one was really cool...

Thats a whole set of emotions and wants put in one beautiful verse..

Suma said...

this was real good..


the last stanza touched a chord soemwhere...amidst the chaos of house hunting and school shopping and myriad thoughts driving me, i certainly look too calm to be believed!

hmm..that was unbridled for sure!! ;) and 'riding an ocean of calm' is what all of us strive so hard to do, but fail and then resort to poetry! dont you agree??!
