Conversation Returns

The conversation returns to mark its third edition on this blog; and this time, its Beauty and the Beast

B:

A puppet silent, in the dusty stall
The only life at the carnival
The only noise; the winds of change
Everything is mute since the day they came

The laughter echoes now in memory
Emptiness a reminder of what had been
On wooden legs the puppet wakes
In forlorn hopes of another day

G:

Buried under the webs of time
Choked of life by hands of fate
In the dusty stalls of fare
Still glimmers a ray of hope

B:

Of hopes and dreams and crystal balls
I dare not speak, lest a curse befall
Turning me into a heap of dust
Much before I have time to rust

G:

You die every minute
to live with this pain
Shadow of fear
is the devil's gain
Have faith as
sun will shine again

Dekho Bhai, ab ya to main bhi very good very good bol ke kat loon, ya apne style mein ekdum sach sach bata doon.. To chalo sach hi bol dete hain..Unlike aapke baaki blog readers, mere bheje mein thoda chemical locha hai.. bole to mujhe itni poetry woetry samajh nahi aati hai.. matlab shayad aati ho, magar main itne patience se poetry padhti hi nahi :( bura mat maanna, meri galti hai..bachpan mein nursery rhymes yaad karne mein bhi bahut problem hoti thi! Ek baar shayad twinkle twinkle have you any wool bola tha, to class se bahar nikal diya tha teacher ne.. kasam udaan jhalle ki, uske baad se poems padhni chhod di thi maine!

Hahah lame comment.. New place, I think.. and I am not getting my daily dose of bollywood here! This HAD to happen!Stay cheers!

Gonecase said...

Macadamia:
