Malaise?

25 Comments

If a cell is a unit of memory
Surrounded by matter…
I must be a memory map
Unforgiving
Insensate and eternal!

If a cell, then, dies
Does that part of me
Get lost forever?

Are you and your
Thoughts
In me

A

Cancer?

An
Unpredictable
Mutation?

Dear Me!

For, do I lose..

In that Carcinoma
When you overwhelm?

Or find myself
Fairly inundated
Terminally
As you seep into
Every nook and
Cranny of my
Consciousness?

Tell me
Dear One,

How will I ever
Cure myself

Of you?

Just posted this last night on the Ah Poetry comm., after an AGE, on Orkut, and so I had to share it here, as I usually do 🙂

Read this one? For you especially, Dhiren 🙂

  12. The poetic profundity of it all. Take a bow, ma’am! :)Loved the parallelism you drew in the end. The inner self, which – unknowing to us – can be so open to change (unpredictable mutation, as u beautifully put it!). The cure – Purity of thought, clarity in outlook, brevity in speech. A health, free from influence. :)Message beautifully conveyed.Peace. Have a nice weekend.
