[494] The Middle of Extremes

Perhaps you will find me when I am lost⁣⁣⁣
Perhaps you will lose yourself in the process⁣⁣⁣
Maybe the quiet will deafen your senses⁣⁣⁣
Maybe the rhymes will give you the peace you require⁣⁣⁣
This exile of feeling feelings has gone on for too long⁣⁣⁣
You live, perhaps, in all the maybe’s of your head⁣⁣⁣
The vague anxiety halts time in a way you didn’t seek⁣⁣⁣
The warm hurt feels too good to be true in a twisted sense⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
All my experiments with truth end up in a failure of lies⁣⁣⁣
The others end up mocking me in dreams ⁣⁣⁣
Their lies are forgotten but the mocking carries over⁣⁣⁣
The rites and mysteries of our tribal instincts ⁣⁣⁣
help us live on and dream on again ⁣⁣⁣
The perseverance of words & images offer a sense of solace ⁣⁣⁣
not found anywhere but here, not really found but not yet lost⁣⁣⁣
not lost but not really found, secrets of the verse in its lost feelings⁣⁣⁣
secrets of the image in its fading⁣
secrets of the peace in our merging

  1. Rahul, this is truly stunning. Yet again, I feel like your words are simply a reflection of my thoughts. This deeply resonates in so many ways, amazingly done 🖤🤗

  2. An intriguing poem. It gives me satisfaction that I’m taking interest in life and not just rushing. Thank you.😊

    I haven’t watched your short film. Will do it. Can you please give me – channel name?

      1. Doesn’t come for me. Are you logged in on youtube? Try mobile data if it still persists. It is categorised as mature content for drug use so that can be an issue as well 😅
