Eternity is Painful

the traitor in the ceiling let the sunlight in
lazy, sleepy sunlight which hadnt slept for centuries.

time! i hate time!
it covers all in its blanket of dust
weaving a spell of forgetfulness, making memories invisible
all but pain, for pain weaves its own magic,
time heals nothing.

each smile is a camouflage,
a crack, which lets a tear seep through.
if you look long enough,
then each thing beautiful eventually turns ugly

nothing is eternal but pain.

your poetry is so negative that its depressing ! isn't there enough sadness in this world already ? or is there no happiness in your life ?

Raghav said...

of course there is happiness in my life, its just not in my poems!

on a more serious note, im normally a very cheerful guy, so wen im sad im REALLY troubled, and hence emotions take over and make me write such depressing pieces

Hi :)

The poem does indeed speak of a shady time :)

I do not think it's wrong or depressing to write about being sad. Without sadness we would never know the value of happiness. In your previous reply I can see that you know: Balance is the key :)

May flowers grow in all the corners of our beings :)

from emotions flows creativity...and it is at our darkest hours where art, like writing, serves as an outlet. And its cheaper than a shrink any day!
