Silence of the Heart

I know I know…I am not sure if this is the first request that I am firing. But, yeah you know well…that this is the time. Now or…’Never’??? Nerds say that answer to all lie hidden in the sub conscious mind…but where’s the key to this much hyped safe? Who cares…I wonder why I’m in a fix when things are clearer than day light. But…no…something’s wrong somewhere…it always is. So are you going to yell out or what? It’s just a word…”Yes” or a “No”. Yeah, I’m used to your silence…but now…It’s deafening me. I’m just a step away from insanity. I used to read your eyes very well. Every gesture…every blink…and true you never spoke. Dumb…you where…but never deaf. I used to get an answer every time, and yeah always in my favour. What else could come out from you?

But mate…or myself….whatever you are…tell me now…a Yes or a No. Lives rest in those letters…Some asked me to follow my heart. Yeah I let my heart drive, ignored the brain for a while. Lucky I was…the trouble I drove into was a sweet one. Apparently the world was good…for a while…and then came in a binge of reality...and Fantasies rushed to places I would never reach…I didn’t want to search for them either.

This is what Life is after all. What is the thrill if everything happens the way I wish…the way I want…the way I dream? Life has to move on…with every second filled with vigour. No…the grapes are not sour…and it’s not always a matter of perception.

Well…you never change…the same old silence…I won’t blame you…But yeah It’ll get darker, and then you disappear…but….but…I don’t want you to return…at least for a while…I’m going to take away your life…

The sound of shattering glass echoed for a while.

He didn’t die, did he glare? No…he’s always calm…from one of those shattered pieces he was smiling… conveying his answer…was that a Yes or a No?

read it again..:-P it aint about love..its a he there...the writer stopped something..the shattered glass shows that..but what?

not the first req..hmm..

mow..why is never in quotes??

you know something..i mean there is this fight the writer is feeling, and he is giving it to his heart..amidst all reasons he is discarding the obvious??? thats wer i got the love part from actually...

yell out-certainly no a verb if he was referring to a girl.nope.

dumb but never we sense an inanimate object here??

"i let my heart drive"..lovely choice of words!!! kudos.

"the trouble i drove into was a sweet one" this certainly means love..but we discarded love. hmm..

he is after something he knows he deserves not...but..what? what could be wrong?#v-guard

but…I don’t want you to return…at least for a while…I’m going to take away your life…


dumb but not deaf...whats that??

i hate you. grr.

Well written. But what on earth was that all about? Seemed like a mystery novel written by a contemporary poet. :P :P

We'll talk about the inspiration behind this, once your exams are done.

You've kept the source of this write-up such a mystery.
I'll contribute my take:
It's about the internal conflicts between the brain & heart, the answers to which are reached by a consensus with the image in the mirror.

Besides the take, It's a indeed a very very good write-up. :)
