This one is like a crazy top that spinned out of this nutcase's head some time back when I was in Switzerland, on top of the tallest accessible point in Europe (a place called Jungfrau Joch), somehow the theme of the 'snowy-icy' scene melted due to some loss I felt in my heart, and some questions popped out.......

I don't know if this is even worth posting, but I do it anyway after waiting for many a month before doing this....mind not the babbling of this fool...


!!!   I know not   !!!
----------

~Scenarioscope~

Standing on a mountain top,
With arms raised in a V
Wind curling up to stop,
My strides locked in the V.

My jaws hurt, my teeth chatters,
Yet I scream your name aloud,
Death becomes of me that shatters
but the mirror holding your face aboard.

~~~

~Questions~

Do you love me or hate me?
Do you trust me or not?
Do you like me or dislike me?
Do you want me or not?

Am I ever gonna change
My evil ways to please you?
Am I ever gonna change
My stupid ways to impress you?

~~~

I know not! I know not!!

~~~

~Epilogue for the Questions~

Since I was to see the world,
Since I had to feel the love,
Since I was to read your mind,
Canít you make it easy for me?

Canít you say you love me?
Canít you say you need me?
Canít you make me feel good?
Canít you just tell me so?

~~~

~Non-stop rattle and hum~

Am I ever gonna change?
Am I gonna stop feeling the same?
Am I gonna get lost in the rain?
Am I gonna feel only the pain?

~~~~~~~~~


†Hey you, out there in the cold,
Getting lonely, getting old, can you feel me?
Hey you, standing in the aisle,
With itchy feet and fading smile, can you feel me?
Hey you, don't help them to bury the light.
Don't give in without a fight.
Hey you, out there on your own,
Sitting naked by the phone, would you touch me?
Hey you, with your ear against the wall,
Waiting for someone to call out, would you touch me?
Hey you, would you help me to carry the stone?
Open your heart, I'm coming home....

by Roger Waters (Pink Floyd) - The Wall

Hummm...I've done my fair amount of yelling...on the plains...and mountains...

and only you know if the questions have been answered.

Never doubt what you post...only doubt that you should not...

Sudhir I have thought these same mad thoughts on the lowest possible point in Hawaii...a place called Waikiki Beach...in fact very recently...and I think perhaps you are in love and you would lose all your doubts and fears and become the happiest man in the world if she would tell you that you are the man.   And she will...I can only hope for you that it will be the one who holds the most special place in your tender heart.  Good luck.   James

I agree with what James said. He put it better than I ever could. not much left for me to say except yes it was worth posting, I think it is good to post poems that you are not 100 % in love with. anyway I liked it. I hope you found the answers and that they were the ones you wanted to hear.

There is never a better feeling than
to shout out how you feel and questions
to the sky.  I post all kinds  of strange
things that go around in my head.

Am glad you are not going to change, that
is something that you should do only for
yourself, and never on the demands of someone else.

I like it Sudhir  - thanks for sharing,

I enjoyed this Sudhir ... I wish I had a mountain top to shout out my questions (the neighbours are getting tired of me ... LOL)  Thanks for posting this one, well done!

Best wishes,

Karilea, James, Brian, netswan, Kit,

So this one clicked, and I was so tentative...

Thanks a lot for reading and saying that this one is worth posting...my doubts lay to rest for now, thanks to all of you...

regards, sudhir
