Each time I put a full stop
She comes and puts a comma below
And the sentence continues….

I don't mean what I say!

A:  How are you?
B:  I am fine, thank you, and how about you?
A:  I am fine, too!

You, like me, must have heard this dialogue or been A or B more than a thousand times till now. Each time someone asks me how I am, I say ‘I am fine!’ even if I am suffering from severe stomach-ache and need medication. Why? I don’t want to show my pain to others? Oh come on…it’s not that sublime…I am not a saint! Am I merely following manners…. a mere formality? Probably yes and don’t know why! Am I trying to avoid any further questions? Quite possible! Don’t I mean what I say?  That is the point! I don’t mean what I say!

I am Responsible!

I am responsible for what I say....
And somewhere I am also responsible for what you understand!
Aren't I?

Formals and Casuals

You will hardly see me in casuals
I don’t want you to take me casually
You will mostly find me in formals
Yes, life is a mere formality for me

I may look shabby and shoddy to you...!
But whatever I am going to do
Is handsome!

Truth and God

God is truth for me...
For her truth is God...
She is my truth!
I her God!

Sun and Sin

The sun sets
For yet another time
To let
The sinful night  
Set in

I see the sun set                                                                                                      
For yet another time
And get set
To pen down the world
Sunk in sin!
