A Quest on Overdrive … :)

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



They say, they do

That soulmates are one soul

Split, halved, if you wish,

Lost needles, in the

Haystack of existence.

It might amuse the

Game Changer, to put a few

In close proximity, to never meet,

And others so far apart

Fashioning a fairy tale of their union.

Just so, so you don’t feel entitled,

Even privileged, to find your own.

It’s that Omniscient thing

That these Game Changers have…

Playing cloud croquet, if you please

With them halves that need to meld.

So, don’t you ever think, or say, much less,

That down the corridors of Time,

Through aeons, and past, future, alternate

Lifetimes, you shall stumble upon yours.

Take it from me,

That cliché has a way of working out

When you look the other way

There is no fairy tale

Or a dream come true.

But, when you bump noses

In that existential haystack,

(Think you fooled that Game Changer?!)

Don’t you just take it for granted

That this would happen, all along?

  1. Finding a soul-mate is certainly not a prerogative
    ‘Tis as rare as a regular-boweller taking a purgative
    So if one finds one
    The cloud-croquet game’s won
    Then, and only then, can the question be answered in the affirmative!

  2. Is it design or is it divine?
    With whom will i align?
    For me, who will pine?
    Into the realms of uncertainty these questions will confine.

    Usha you are chugging along at full steam.

    • Chugging along? Nah, being dragged along, but it’s okay 🙂 There are scratch marks on the wall, where I had to be pulled, resisting 😛
      But the good thing is the Procrastinator is actually behaving 🙂
      Thank you Govind 🙂
      And yes, that uncertainty is the one certain thing 🙂
