A Quest on Overdrive … :)

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

Life, Again…


Into the well of silence
Flows our unspoken,
But deeply felt dreams;

The day you stepped
Right into my life-

(And broke down
the defences,
Constructed painfully
Through years and years
Of Banging my head-
Against the Wall of Life)

You left me open
And vulnerable again,
To Emotion-

I was lost.

The suddenness of
A cold cold stinging shower,
And here I am
Awakened to Life.

I find the silence
From the Screaming
Emptiness of Loneliness…

Life sprouted again,
Fed by the dreams,
Infused by your strength,
Your relentless tenderness,
And lifted by your
Buoyant, uplifting
Cloak of Love-

And so,
I find

  1. its so true..every emotion has been lived, and relived…n its utterly beautiful 🙂


  2. :)..Now, this is like really freaky, but I was just thinking on the lines of the first sting of a cold shower, woah! :)..It just bolts you out of your reverie :)..I dunno, I feel like this poem’s been running inside me for a very long time, and you’ve suddenly put it on paper 🙂 :)Love this one 🙂


  3. Bear with you ?? you gotta be kidding your wonderful use of words is inspiring !! Even i started liking poetry thanks to you !!! i m surely gonna bear with you !! 😀


  4. Ah life!So beautifully made alive!


  5. Sash… :)thank you dear one!Aruna, oh my! that is such an echo 🙂 But do put it down on paper, and blog, and let us share in those words which have been running inside… 🙂 And thank you for that sharing :)Dhirubhai 🙂 as everyone has started calling you 🙂 [and I rather like it :)], thank you 🙂 Like I said earlier, I am not sure about it being poetry, but I am glad you like it :)Thanks so much!

  7. Your words always speak to the readers. As always beautiful and as always I ask you to publish it one day 🙂


  8. Dhirubhai the name i love it too… after all its associated with Ambani !! most of my friends call me that… but the male friends … and not the female friends… lol 😀 this isnt poetry than what is ?? Being modest if fine… dont confuse me but ! lol 😛


  9. I find it very odd now, when someone says that his/her life is dependent on someone else…I don’t mean to say, I don’t remember the days when I would spend my days in utter hopelessness….but somehow seem to have outlived it all…and now its become my habit to mock at people who talk of romantic love! …and I get my share for that!! :)nice writing anyway, Usha :)wishes, devika


  10. Could relate to it, a lot. Especially the first part. (till – I was lost.)Beautifully penned. Inimitably you, ma’am.Peace. Have a nice day.


  11. somehow it reminded me of the pink floyd classic ‘coming back to life’…the sense of loneliness, pain…I donnow what it is that struck me


  12. The seed always lies dormantin wait for a suitable agentto make it grow lively & vibrant and bring forth flowers so fragrant

  15. ushaji.. liked the expression”banging my head against the wall of life”..it was excellent..how many times in all our small lives do we all remember that we are really”alive”..”living” seldom happens.. liked it. mip
