Ask him not,

The one who chooses,


Out of his own will,

A number of reasons he’d give,

Talk-a-phobia, serenity,

Scorn towards fellow beings,

Varied others,

Ask him,

The one who wasn’t considered,

Worthy enough by a friend to be a close confidant,

Worthy of friendship,

Worthy for a friendly outing,



Would slowly teach,

Stronger than self,

None is,



Would only weaken thy resolve,

Pain of belonging,

He’d wisely tell.

The flowers of the fiction plant rooted in my brain, the voice of the inexpressible feelings hidden in my heart and the eruption of the theories burning in my mind– I made a ball out of the three, threw it high into the sky and it landed right at my blog.
