The blues…

It happens to all of us. You suddenly feel gloomy and would just want to sit and brood. It is just another flavour of what the mind and the heart can sometimes put you through. Just sit back, relax and let those moments pass. ________________________________________________________________

There are these days

When I feel sullen and blue

As if simmered in a stew;

The mind is wavering

Unsure what it is savouring;

There is a thorn in the heart

I don’t know why

Nor realize what is short;

The world seems murky

Everyone appears crazy;

I don’t like the food

And find every reason to brood;

The air seems a bit too warm

And the sweat eats away

Any leftover charm;

I know it takes just a little while

To get back to normalcy again;

I want it to pass away

And feel gay in the bargain;

Wonder if it is the hormones play

Or just a mere mind sway;

I write, to blind it out of my way

So I can get back to my world,

Without restrain!

  1. Yep – Those days come and go. As long there aren’t too many of them, I suppose its OK. In one of those moods, I now know to seek out this poem and read it !

    • Guess what, I have been stuck in Chennai this whole week! Returning only tomorrow.That sort of sets the mood…:-(

  2. Apart from the message and theme, the poem is excellent in its construction and rhyme. It gives coherency to each succeeding lines and makes it a good read. Great work.
