A Quest on Overdrive … :)

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

Waiting in the Wings


I’ve been understudy too long
Even though you assure me
I’m leading lady, for you, always…

Do I take you at face-value?
Or perhaps read between the lines
Of your facetious compliment?

Compliment, it is, I presume.
I’ve lived the role, you know;
Once too often.

Messed up, sure, sometimes
But never the scripted ones.
Only when I tried to improvise.

That should, perhaps, tell us a story.
Are we too written in?
Ready to be written off?

Or shall I ever, but always
Watch her rule the hearts
Of those who hang on her every nuance?

While I am waiting in the wings?

  1. This resounds somewhere inside me.


  2. Such a complex state of thoughts. Very well put across.

    “Are we too written in?
    Ready to be written off?”


  3. Well-framed words giving rise to hundreds of questions in the short span you read it…. Gives an insight into the mind of the “leading lady”….


    • David… insight is what you have too 🙂 and patience and … 🙂
      Thank you for the enormous amount of time you spent, gifting the writes here your warmth and words 🙂 Thank YOU.


  4. Please tell me on whose behest
    do you decide who’s best;
    you are stealing all my zest
    by not putting me to test
    in my own house I don’t want to be a guest
    relieve me that i might take a much needed rest

    To me it sounded like the laments of the other woman. 🙂


Thank you for reading. Do stop a while and write in too... :)
