Shadows



parallel worlds
though ours appear,
you are not me
and I am not you -
insurmountable walls,
mysterious boundaries
separate our lives
where beating hearts
find no returns.

don’t you see?
what divides us
is our thoughts -
separation is a myth
built in the far recesses
of our subconscious.


underneath we are one
our souls are one and
my heart bounce to the
rhythm of yours-
look deep and you will know,
there’s no such thing as
parallel worlds.

Thanks Pia for the inspiration, I was scratching my head for inspiration on the second day of National Poetry Month, and looks like 3WW came to the rescue. I do hope Bone's father feels much better soon. This is the second poem, twenty eight more to go.

Hey UL; saw your comments in two places; I couldn’t believe it; WOW! A comment from UL, it just made my day! Rather it made my “year”:) I have been following your blog for a while, came over from Anamika’s and Lakshmusings; I really really admire your work and am in awe of your talents; you make it seem so easy – poetry, prose or any other literary work. So, you can imagine my excitement when I saw your comment; thank you for taking the time… I have been a lurker, but I really admire your blog – both actually and love them both; I can’t stop gushing! Will continue to follow yours (hope you don’t mind) and once again you are awesome! And thank you :):) you are my inspiration for my poem blog and the attempt at NaPoWriMo is also inspired by none other than you; And, did I tel you how talented you are? thanks,

I've read this several times UL and I feel like I am swimming and towing two different ideas, both not true by themselves. But when joined, are the truth and one.

The whole piece is like a thought process going on in your mind. A lovely piece.

I'm so glad I agreed to take part. I've just posted my piece for the third. Thanks for suggesting it.

it makes a lot of sense to me... i am wondering how long it will take for the rest of the world to catch on.......

Whitesnake said...

I did it last year.
I wrote 33 if my memory is still functioning.

You'll do fine........
Inspiration comes from stopping every once in awhile and smelling the roses.

insurmountable walls,
mysterious boundaries
separate our lives


That made me so sad. I think because I've been there, wanted to do away with those walls and boundaries... and failed. Thus, lives stay separated.

beautiful side of love where there truly is no division...

Noah the Great said...

Oh wow. I totally understand this.

Thinking aloud said...

how do you do this day after day? absolutely wonderfully worded...

*what divides us is our thoughts* this is so true...
