Words on the Blank Page

Blank Page of the diary
usually reflects the condition
of a writer’s mental psyche.
Thoughts are brought into existence,
and they reach for the pen.blank_page

Mesmerized by ink, as it flows with ease,
letters take their place
in the endless empty space,
with deliberate design.
Quickly, parchment is occupied by words.

A behemoth, skepticism, is unleashed.
Will the soliloquy be appreciated?
Or is it a mindless monologue,
a churlish catharsis of the soul?

Whatever the answers may be,
those words are owned by me.
A responsibility not taken lightly,
since oft quoted, “The pen is mightier than the sword.”

    A strong ending, Bhaskar.
    I found this to be a very clever and well thought-out verse 🙂
    To me writing is true freemdom at it’s best, I so love to create something new!

  2. This rocked in every way. Words so true.
    What we write and display can never be taken back, we need to take full responsibility.
