A Quest on Overdrive … :)

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



As with Kundera’s

Unbearable lightness of being
So with the openness

That begets such heaviness
I face blankness

The vastness of a suddenly vacant consciousness
The vanished vanquished vanity
Of an arrogant artful me
All knowing I was
Oh How I Was

Till this dot of time
A Period
To punctuate a life that flowed
Unhesitatingly, unbeknown to lightness
Of heart, Of feeling, Of being.

Lighter of my excess emotional baggage
I sag. Not lift.
I lag. And drift.

Seeking closure. That which
Will never be, seeing that
I could never
Never let you go.

  1. It has that rawness, that unedited, the not too perfectly polished reality in it.Has the endearing passion. Keep this for it shows you as a mirror. 🙂


  2. Soumya… raw, uedited, unpolished… are keys to writes here anyway… and this one more than most. Lol! Thanks for finding something even in this absurdity :D! Thanks a ton!


  3. Memories like a foot in the door,makes letting go a difficult chore.Buried thoughts from the times of yore, germinate from within as if from a spore. Beautiful. Just loved it, especially the pun with “Period”


  4. Govind, thank you. To be honest, I did not realize that figure of speech till you pointed it out in your note! So double thank you 🙂 🙂
