Elegy To A Memory

I forgave her a long time ago actually.

I realized, she wasn’t at fault anyway;

She just chose wrong, and walked away

On realizing it. I guess, I was kinda silly,

Too emotional, and not really good

At anything, except to dream and brood.


And her instinct kicked in to save her.

The book says: a female needs a mate

Who can provide as well as procreate.

I hadn’t material inclinations to persuade her.

And he listened well, but judged it right

When her dad said my prospects weren’t bright.


And with what could I tilt the scales of fate?

Reminding her of her first tender kiss laid

On my unshaven chin; or our first date

In the ice-cream shop, for which she paid;

The card I drew, which she said was totally mad?

Against her instinct, and wisdom of her dad.



I have always been a great believer. I've flitted from one belief to another, from religion to atheism and from one philosophy to another, until I finally settled on J. Krishnamurti whose philosophy is that there is no philosophy. So now I firmly believe that there is nothing to believe. Now such a belief would, I believe, have been considered dangerous to society if the authorities had believed me to be of any consequence. No man of consequence they believe would waste his time on the pursuit of blogging!

    I have read the story in your tweets. Still a poetry is a totally different expression. Simple yet complicated. Nice.

    Well I don’t need to say you are awesome… 😉 but this was quite touching. Will keep it remember, who knows I would be reciting it someday. 🙂
