That Cut of a Blade !

Best Blog Tips
An accidental cut,
a momentary gush of blood
Reassured me that,
color of my blood,
Is still red !

Somewhere beneath my skin,
its flowing effortlessly, smoothly,
Without me caring or knowing.
running all over inside,
Reaching, where it needs to be.

Am no selfless warrior,
or caring doctor.
I'm merely,
a morbid mortal.
A thankless cynical.
living heedlessly,
Still surviving on
several umbilical.

I'm in pain,
but, happy this time.
After a long time,
somehow, I realized
Am Alive !
grateful to,
That Cut of a blade.

    1. thanks a lot for visiting again Yuppie! I keep relying on my several old sources/habits to seek solace/shelter..I guess we all do hold our own umbilical chords, sometimes which makes us weak and fragile...hope to read you more often !

    2. USP is right--there is pain embedded in this poem that even in the moment of happiness still hovers around--I can almost see that moment, through your verse, when that sense of being alive comes into consciousness. You have written a lovely poem..very well-written buddy!

  13. There are situations when the world around becomes almost silent and we become numb. The problem arises when the numbness stays for a very long time. It is only such instances that can bring us back to reality. Lovely post!
