“At one magical instant in your early childhood, the page of a book—that string of confused, alien ciphers—shivered into meaning. Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; at that moment, whole universes opened. You became, irrevocably, a reader.” –Alberto Manguel

Losing To You

“You know that place between sleeping and awake, that place where you can still remember dreaming? That's where I'll always think of you.” –J M Barrie

You’re a thought crept in insomnia;
a deep breath of despair,
I always fail not to think of you;
no matter how much I dare.

You’re a joy within;
an ache deep inside,
a scar peeking through the past;
no matter how much I try to hide.

All these thoughts make me feel so blue;
and I’ll always be losing to you.

You’re a dream lost in tears;
strong wish on a shooting star,
someone’s so called world;
out of reach, so far.

You’re a perfume that lingers;
a song that conquers my heart,
an unsolved mystery;
I gotta solve from the start.

All these thoughts make me feel so blue;
and I’ll always be losing to you.

  1. I Like it.. :) that's so sweet :)

  2. Ummmmm,,, tempted to know the lucky one you are losing yourself to. hehe, anyways, emotions are dripping through every letter & that indicates earnestness of thought & integrity . Probably there couldn't have been a better way to vent out one's feelings about someone special. Lovely. Girl, You are amazing.

  3. profound one...people lose to re-identify themselves..very often a side is discovered that was totally unknown...and this isn't philosophy..it psychology of Sigmund Freud-"the sub-consciuous is a repository of thoughts not known to the conscious mind....bcoz painful memories are often repressed ..only to be discovered as a sudden retireival on meeting the aprrpriate stimulus....DREAMS REVEAL THE INNER CORE OF THE HUMAN PERSONA....

    1. Well, I am familiar with Sigmund Freud and Freudism. I agree with every single letter of your comment. :)
