Poet Lady Katz (new forum post): Hollow

Poetry Talk

New post from Being_oasis


Clouds up above my head,

As I walk down the moonlit lane,

Gentle wind carrying on its back,

Squeaks, chirps and silent laughs


Hands tucked deep inside,

Eyes bowed down, saddened mind

Mundane thoughts in my head

Stupid emotional distress

Feelings I hid from the world,

Came barging in, no answers learned.

Some questions they did propose,

Answers were two drops alone.


Friends I had quite a few,

Left now none, it’s just me and you,

Who is the other, you might wonder?

Mind and heart blown asunder

Being clumsy to cure the gloom inside,


Behind that smile is a crying child,

Why so sad? Can’t really tell!

You might relate, if you knew well


Didn’t grow from the kid I was,

Making paper planes and paper boats,

Still, dance under the thunder clouds

And jump on puddles,

 wherever I found

Still watch squirrels, and their merry play,

And peep at sparrows from far away.

Dazzled by the starry sky,

Listened to the sounds of night


No idea, why am I still

Whether is it a curse, or is it chill

To be a child in an adult build

To be a child in an adult build


Walked past some passerby

Smiles exchanged, no replies

Eyes conversed what lips could not

Forgot the gloom, happy thoughts

Strangers we were all along

Travelers having tea at dawn


Fall of night is taking place

Walking under the good moon’s gaze

Lost am I In this world?

Or All of it is a just a blur


Life and its complexities

I cannot really comprehend

Pray to be anything else

Just not a zombie of the adult realm

Just not a zombie of the adult realm
