Similar Differences

(A Free Verse for OctPoWriMo- Day 26)

Art by MDragonwillow

It’s amusing as I ruminate on a past long gone,
As things are almost the same even decades later.
Similarities and differences differentiating pals 
A slight regret that I never pondered much then.
For when they felt my favourites were not theirs,
Didn’t I also feel they were different as they felt I was?
So, why didn’t them or I just accept our differences?
Instead, we drifted apart, far as strangers
Ignoring our similarities, accentuating our differences.
In the struggle to fit into an accepted normalcy
Conditioned and appraised through ages by the choicest;
I, somehow felt that I am an oddity,
Did they feel the same about themselves? I would never know.
Now, as I regretfully contemplate, a thought lingers…
In this normalcy drama engulfing us,
Aren’t we similar in our differences?

Just A Poem

OctPoWriMo – Day 25. For today’s challenge, I attempted creating a new poetry form- a 13 lined poem.

Rhyme Scheme: axa bxb cxc dede

Syllables :9/9/7 9/9/7 9/9/7 7/7/9/9

However, if this form exists in your knowledge, please be kind enough to let me know so that I can credit the creator and form accordingly. (I haven’t named the form for the same reasons!!!) The syllable count was not a planned one. When I phrased the first line, it had 9 syllables, so I decided to continue with it. Also, 7 happens to be my favourite number, not due to numerology reasons but because I was born on a 7th.😎

Would I ever create a new form
Of poems steeped in rhymes and meters?
Whisked with chaos till I’m calm. Continue reading “Just A Poem”

Patting myself on the back for cleaning this cupboard
Riddled with ancient dust and my laziness
I saw one of my favourite books
Desperately calling me to open it to
Enjoy a world of Jane Austen and her words. Continue reading ““Pride And Prejudice””
