Through the eyes of a puppet


The sprawling campus stares at him; the sight trapped between the pendulum of his corona and the glass of his building. Cool breeze dies hitting the colder wall. The vastness engulfs him and suddenly he realizes how minute he is. The whole universe is looking at him as if he has been brought to this stage to be laughed upon. He can see his own reflection making a mockery of him.

The puppeteer has broken the threads but what is left is something non-existing instead of freedom what he has been yearning for. What is he without those threads when the lifeline of a puppet is the blood flowing through the veins of those fingers. And how hard it is to know that those fingers aren’t your extensions.

Is this soothing quiet or sooting lull that stands here ?

The puppeteer has broken the threads but what is left is something non-existing instead of freedom what he has been yearning for.

true indeed.. freedom is often a lot more constricting than it is supposed to be...

above all, what intrigues me is the question woven in the last line...

awesome expression and fab imagery...just the right ingredients for that perfect recipe...oops...i mean prose!

i guess we all find our reflections mocking us at times.. the trick is in laughing back in the face of mockery and just living life the way you want to no matter what the world says
great work

That was a joke Crazy ji, I didn't mean to be rude. And for the second part, some things are not meant to be discussed in public ;-)

crasiezt said...

Alright no discussions then..let our actions do all the talking eh? LOL

Gonecase said...

Yep :P

freesherry said...

yes it is no easy, but do we have a choice?
if life finds its pleasure in mocking us, then the only way we can have revenge is by making a mockery out of life itself
