How Can

An old piece recovered from the old blog .... and a little editing to go with the times..

Over a cup of coffee
How can
We
Decide to spend the entire span
Of our conscious and unconscious lives together
In pleasure and pain
Through fair and foul weather

Making silly small talk
How can
We
Conclude from what today we speak
Tomorrow our words shall liven our lives
Or turn them bleak.

In our actions and gestures
How can
We
Try to normal be
When the act of sitting here itself
Is a deviation from normalcy

Post a lifetime spent together
How can
We
So surely tell
That we'd know each other well
When past half our lives we're ignorant of
All the people we're made up of.

So let’s begin
The compromise
And honestly
Try to surmise
All that we adore
And things that we
Just can't ignore.

Its been ages

Its been ages and the yearning to get back has got the better of me but sadly I find that words don't follow the mind's desires.. maybe they will have to pulled out with tongs, if need be..

Then maybe a gentler approach would be far more acceptable to the tenuous thoughts that seem to shy away from such signs of violence. Maybe some coaxing and cajoling should help, maybe ....

Or maybe the trick is to let them feel they aren't required any more...

'Hah'.. they scorn at me... "Why'd you abandon us so long then.. Do you think you're our master and we answer to your beck and call..."

I distance myself from this pointed criticism.. "It wasn't me.. It was the ideas... They betrayed me.. Its they who betrayed you.. I had no control.."

"Why didn't you use the approaches you now discuss long ago... with them instead of us?? why?"

Sometimes its best to stay silent.. to let the anger vent itself out!!
