with this storm raging up above
standing here all alone
wishing an ocean of down pour
dreaming to get LOST in the abyss unknown

the unknown mystifies me tonight
coz its the only place where i can HIDE
don't know from what
don't even know why

HIDE to get LOST
LOST just to HIDE
LOST in darkness
HIDDEN in light
where light and darkness cease to fight

HIDE from myself and from thee
HIDE from the people and the things we see
HIDE from the usual and the decree
HIDE from the hatred in the love
HIDE from the darkness in the light
HIDE from the lies in the truth
HIDE where winners win and losers lose
HIDE where the one who strives gets the fruit
HIDE in a place where i can get lost

wish getting LOST was so easy
as easy as feeling sad may be
but how the hell do i get LOST ?
in a place where i know all the directions already

then again getting LOST is so easy
as easy as losing yourself in the crowd may be
but how the hell do i get LOST ?
around people who are LOST already

LOST in darkness and in grief
LOST in despair and in disease
LOST in lust and in creed
LOST in winning and in greed
LOST in freedom and in speed
LOST in restriction and in weed
LOST in strife and even in peace
LOST in life without any heed...



hmm....good one!! nicely depicting the emotions of a person who doesn't fit in the crowd!!!!

hmmm...poem is doubt...

lekin..dunno why ..i feel somewhat similarity between ur last two posts aur us convicted to conviction wale mein.pata nahi...i feel...dey depict...somewhat the same emotion.

i think.....iam getting a clear picture now.

hey! have u read my poem -the land unknown. i think this holds quite a similar msg to that one. but nice attempt:)


@nirvan:one is abt hope (convicted to conviction)
other is abt despairity (HIDDEN n LOST)
but they do deal wid emotions which r of same nature......
but this poem has no sign of hope in it......its jus abt getting LOST n BE HIDDEN coz of the crowd around u...although tht is cleary not the soln :)

@abhu:no i havnt read ur poem the land unknown or mayb i hav n i dont rememebr but i vl check it again...n yes they might deal wid the same things....after all our GENERATION X is so LOST !!!! is so MANY THINGS......i cant really blame ne1.....coz m equally a part of it....circumstantial or otherwise.......:)
