Today

Something is different today

The music is louder. The train is gliding, instead of running. And, the people around you are more sleepy than usual. You get out of the train and you climb the stairs. It’s really dull outside. Something is different today. Today, it’s raining. But, there is something more.

The road is all muddy. And, there is a strange bokeh in the air, which can be felt and not seen. There are fewer cars than most days and you can almost imagine a train arrive in the middle of the road. Something is different today. Today, you’re in a dream. But, there’s something more.

Everything is falling apart: everything is melting. Everything is melting into darkness and whatever light there was is slowly fading into oblivion. And, someone is walking towards you, through the darkness and through the melting buildings and cars to save you. But, today there is something more. Today, you know that she is walking too slow. Today, you’ve embraced it, you’ve imagined yourself as the hero of a story and you know that heroes fall. Today, you’ve escaped.

As I promised earlier this week, the first poem of  “This is Not a Poem” Poetry series will be published today as a part of today’s NaPoWriMo poem.  The title of the series, however quirky, has a concrete meaning. The best thing: it can be interpreted by everyone in different ways! There are as many meanings as the number of people reading it!
On the contrary, the poems are really simple, easy to understand and have a definite meaning. All of them are based on themes of social injustice, prevailing old-school systems and other social topics.  Hope you like them!

My exams are over and so, I will be spending a lot of time entertaining you with my poems and stories via Abysmal Heights. Here is a sneak peek to all that is gonna happen in the next few days:
