The Inheritance of Pain


Living life in a screen of irony, its strange sometimes to wonder ... have I become mechanical?

I crave the touch, but not the heart - please keep the throbbing for someone else

I seduce all senses, but not emotions - please I could do without the drama

I can be with you, but not wholly - please lets cut the bull shit and just make love

I love to talk about my (un)exciting life and what cosummates my whole; but all vacant conversations - please don't get personal and keep things simple

I love to listen about poetry, music, drama and action - please don't make me the muse, I'd rather the inspiration stem from other sources

I love to be a part of the play, but not the lead - please don't put me in the spotlight...

And then you ask me why am I dead.... Its the inheritance of pain - but please lets not stake claim to what is universal to my existence... I just wanna party and leave all the tears for another day!

It's nice, harsh and brutal, it is really how you feel like these days or is there a bit of dramatic content too.

A bit of both. Life is kind and unkind and lil drama too...

Since July, you've been writin a lot less, but it seems more sadness brings more conviction. Don't know how long you'll put it off, but I wish you'd tell me what it is that's really in your mind.
Very discordant and real, keep it up, pain can bring out the best in us sometimes.

Not really, I keep leaving stuff on other people's blogs cus I usually come up with stuff when I come across something I relate to. I fear that I'd be a plagiarist if I put all the stuff up on a blog.
I find it easier for people to understand the intention of what I write if they have no depiction of me in their heads.

I see...well words thrown randomly, not sometimes but always, make the most sense...and we are all plagiarists of emotions, words and life as such... youre right...the no depiction intention helps... some uses of the world wide web... :-))

And Nikhil...discordant words are always what Ive had and fed on the darkness more... thought you knew that...when life becomes bigger, net becomes smaller... doesnt necessarily mean Im sad...its sadness I romance

There you go again.. doing that.. that.. aargghh..
..
.. there i go doing that.. that thing when i know exactly what i want to say, but dont know what word(s) to use. Its funny how everything i read that's come from your mind brings a smile to me, uncontrolable, yet delectable. Anyone around me stares and wonders what i'm smiling at, coz it lingers till much later. Dont know what i'm smiling at though, maybe the little part of you that you put in every work of yours.

I used to 'think' i never really got to know you, now i 'know' that i didn't. Thank you for sharing..

my third comment....
i am a fan already....
this post was the best so far.

being mechanical is one of the easier options in life. this is my one-liner.
but then our sole pinches us from with, calling the ethics of nature.
we feel bad at times, but then one fine day the sole twitches and gets mechanical too.

amazing....
