Starting over...yet again

Yesterday i found something that i had written long time back...

Sometimes...

Sometimes i wish i can wipe my slate clean and start over...Tabula Rasa
but will i be able to go through life again? who knows...

Sometimes i just want to run away from it all...
but there is nowhere to run...

Sometimes i just want to shut out the world...
but the quiet scares me...

Sometimes i want to turn back the clock...
but to what time? i dont know...

Sometimes...
what u think and what happens is not the same...
Sometimes...
what happens is not what u thought about...
Sometimes...
u wish...but dont want ur wish to be granted....
Sometimes...
u dont know wat u want...
Sometimes...
it's just so difficult to say the most simple things...
Sometimes...
the memories just dont go away...they keep coming back to haunt you...
Sometimes...
u dont want the memories to fade...
Sometimes...
i wish u would come back...
Sometimes...
i wish that u would never look back...
Sometimes...
time moves so fast that everything seems a blur and
Sometimes...
it drags on and on and on...

It is funny, that when i wrote this poem (if we can call it that) i was upset, which is quite evident from the tone, but now those very reasons that made me (someone who for the life of her cant write anything resembling poetry) write a poem ceased to exist... they are not even a part of my life anymore or rather they dont occupy an important place so as to effect me tragically. i read somewhere that matters which seem like life and death at a particular time are not even part of our life equation five years down the line... How strange, but does that hold true always?

  1. i think so yes..this does happen most of the times..but it happens only with "factors"..factors change every few months or years but people who come come in our life to stay can never be called factors right? they become a reason for us being us..but LIFE for us..its what role peole choose to play in our life..if they want to be a factor which will eventually be replaced by a new one..or they want to become one of those reasons because of which we find life lively!!!

  2. yup i do believe that holds true, things which we thought would never go away at times just go away and its years down the line that we realise that they are no longer there!

  5. it is called experience. when u are facing any situation first time it seems to be difficult to come out of this (even departing from someone you really love or u think u cant live without, but when u once go through this u become experienced and after that similar incidents goes with less pain and more ease. one more thing when you are going through this you just think about that factor only, but after some time you just move forward to some other things which with passage of time becomes more important and that factor less important.

  7. Hi Meg

    Here is my feedback for ur bloger

    U shld seriously consider becoming a full fledge writer. I think you have the skill to deliver the Goods.

    I love the way u empower the reader through ur words:)

    Now the Negatives:

    I can see ur a passionate writer, one who writes what she feels but in the professional world ur words would be scrutinised. So need to keep a check on that.

    In what little I have read on ur blog, U seem to loose ur grip on the audience in the middle segment of write ups.

    All writers either have great begnings or great ends, but you have both. But ur mid segment needs to be worked upon as I think it can be much better.

    Last but not the least Vocab:

    Use of heavy words is quite gud and it does add impact to ur writing but you have to remeber that ur content is read by an average indvidual as well. So next time you write keep this in mind.

    Finshing off All I would say is I expect to read lot of Books who have ur name as the Author on them Coz I know it is within you to achive this.

    All the best.
