What should I call this state of mine?
I’m neither dead nor do I feel alive.
Can’t keep this feeling
Buried deep in my heart
Nor can I reveal it to you
As I know, it’ll throw us apart
My heart and my mind
Both entangled in this confusion
Can’t find a way out of this illusion
I’m in such a diabolic situation
No longer can I lie to you , my dear
This is the worst thing I’d feared
It’s becoming so intolerable
To me, all of this sounds so so unfair
To have you, besides me
All the time, all the day
Me, thinking of you
You, thinking of her….

    Here’s a solution, a fren of mine provided…

    You call this state, a state of dilemma.
    Neither dead nor alive, you must be in coma.
    Throw away the feelings if you cannot keep
    You entangled feelings in your heart buried deep.
    Don’t reveal it, just say it to me
    If you won’t throw it, it might make us weep.
    Your heart and your mind, I hadn’t thought
    Were so close to each other.
    You are in such a diabolic condition.
    Why don’t you catalyze your damn situation?
    Don’t lie to me, oh my love!
    Lie on my arms and bent your curve.
    If it’s unbearable,
    Burst and cry your heart out, my dear.
    If it sounds unfair,
    Put the damn cotton on your ears.
    I always run away from thee,
    So how can you be always with me?
    This shows you were with someone else.
    But please think of me,
    This is certainly unfair,
    I , thinking of you
    When He thinks of her…

    Hey guys,

    Just wanted to share few poetic lines….
    Nothing to do with my past, present or future at all…

    P.S. I was happy then, I am happy now! :wink:

  3. Reply to these days what

    Sorry to bother you these days. It is good for her that she forgot the past. He was the one who dumped her. So what is there in still remembering him. We should move on in our life rather than regretting about the past. Good job jane that u forgot abt it. And all the best for future. :smile:

    “Me, thinking of you
    You, thinking of her….”

    It was one of the things that had put in a fix, back in those days. :oops:

  5. Awsiv

    Yup, very nice lines… in a sense that that they are very few and yet lets the reader know what the poet is going through.. plain torture.. and “Love” or “Hate” – neither is under his control. A similar situation, ie. helpless.

    “No longer can I lie to you , my dear” – it is the pivotal line in your poem.. (No offence Mr. Sensible)

    Keep writing

    “I hate and I love. Why should I do that, perhaps you ask?
    I don’t know. But I feel it is happening and I am tortured.”

    The translated version of
    “Odi et amo. quare id faciam, fortasse requiris.
    nescio, sed fieri sentio et excrucior.”

    Really nice lines…

    Btw, once a dilemma, always remains a dilemma :lol:

  7. dilemma

    Nice one..

    i guess the reason u are in dilemma is :-
    “Me, thinking of you
    You, thinking of her….”

    He is really thinking of her or not you’re not sure that might have created the dilemma…

    just my interpretation .. i don’t mean to provoke the author

  8. Past memory

    Pheri kaha timilai past ko kura haru samjhana ayo? Purano jhakm haru pheri taja ta bhayeko haina ni ta? Anyways hope that this situation will never come again in your life. Last ma chahi ali laya bigryo jasto cha. But overall a good one.

    Dear Mr.Sensible,

    Thanks for your suggestion. As you commented yourself, feelings come at times only… but if such ‘times’ happen to occur again, i’ll remind myself to be more aesthetic and evocative while sketching them down.

    P.S. this one was written long time back!

  10. Mr Sensible

    The message is loud and clear. Nice!!

    Just an observation (plz don’t mind :smile: ):
    From the line “No longer can I lie to you…..” till the end, it seemed to me that choice of some words are a bit less illuminating and I think choice of words can be made more aesthetic and evocative.

    I know that feelings come at times only, and we just sketch it down.
