Helping

Don’t watch. Wait, no, I know you have to count
the minutes so you know how long it lasts,
this seizure with its dynamite that blasts
my brain to temporary shreds. With gaunt

eyes, lost in fog now, I depend on you.
You may not know just what to do, but still,
I beg: Don’t let it drive my avenue.
Please, help to quiet down its voice so shrill.

Palindrome/Mirror Poetry

Beware: It is quite difficult- at least I think so.

Here are the rules-

  1. You must use the same words in the first half of the poem as the second half, but
  2. Reverse the order for the second half, and
  3. Use a word in the middle as a bridge from the first half to the second half of the poem

Here is what I wrote(its a little silly)-

shadow in light,

brain’s light is

slight

is light, brain’s light

in shadow.


5 Liners – A Round

 

Brain.

Thinking machine

Not working today.

Busy week end, tired.

Sleep.

 

Sleep.

Refresh me.

Not working today.

Too much to do.

Work.

 

Work.

Exhibition coming.

Not working today.

Running around in circles.

Stop.

 

Stop.

Do nothing?

Not working today?

Need off switch for

Brain.

Giddy thought

What is the relation of this picture with the giddy thought?- I don’t know. I just felt like posting this picture!

A giddy thought strikes my mind

I know now what to think of

What to think about for another day

And torture myself by thinking about

it again and again till the mind bursts

with pain, for pain is better than confusion

prevailing thoroughly, in an amazing way

within the nerves and the brain.
