A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)

Found, then Lost!


Found, I am.
By you.
Lost, I am.
To myself.

And that, perhaps,
Is why
I shall have to
search till Eternity-

If I so wish.
If I ever wanted
to meet Me again.

Happily enough,
I don’t really want to.

I’d rather keep you.

A re-post from Writer’s Lounge, where I had posted it a while ago. Waiting for the muse to reach out again! And also trying out the Scheduled Post Options to see if it works. Just discovered it with the previous post:)

  8. Praveen, I guess I can be a boor with all that complexity sometimes.. :D! Glad you could enjoy this one!:)Devika 🙂 Indeed a mass of contradiction the blog appears, isn’t it? Still, the quest is on… for all that yet has to be shared, in words, to find resonance in, to discover, be enthralled, and ever enrich oneself… 🙂 in spaces other than here, and all those who share of themselves here 🙂 Thank you for the kind words!Leo..:)Thanks, so very much!Balwinder [I hope I may do away with the title, Mr. :-)], thank you; that is such a lovely note too!Indyeah, 🙂 complex and simple? I guess I do try a bit and make it somewhat outlandish, each time, though I do not always succeed as often as I would like to :D!!
