Awaiting rebirth...


I want to cry... but my tear glands are way too tired.
I want to sing... but my vocal chords just resigned.

I want to run... but the signs on this crossroad are all messed up.
I want to scream ... but the voices in my head wouldnt shut up.

I want to smile... but someone harvested all my smiles crop.
I want to jump.... but i am stuck with my feet glued to the hilltop.

I want to drink... but the trip i am in, no drink seems good enough
I want to eat... but it just seems a little too tough.

I do want to live... but as of now i am just too dead to try that!

Hmmm I know what all this means. Its a never ending feeling for me.

I hope its nothing more than PMS.
Cheer up!
OK. Just how many point did I lose here?

Ok let me lose some more points in a misguided attempt to cheer you up:

//I want to cry... but my tear glands are way too tired.

Drink some water, vitamins and gatorade. Your tear glands will become as perky as ever, thats if a 'perky' 'tear gland' is not an impossible paradox in itself ;) But it just might work for a paradox philic!

//I want to sing... but my vocal chords just resigned.

Believe me nobody else is gonna hire them. You is the only place where they fit. Take adavntage of recession and offer to magnanimously hire them back, though cheaper!

//I want to run... but the signs on this crossroad are all messed up.

I always run around in circles, especially around sign posts of life. Come join me. Wheeee!

//I want to scream ... but the voices in my head wouldnt shut up.

Cool. Voices in the head! Classic signs of creativity. Steer them and write it all down. Beat JK Rowling!

//I want to smile... but someone harvested all my smiles crop.

Err it doesn't make sense. Look here:
"Someone harvested all my wheat. Now I can't wheat, though I want to!"
The grammar as well as logic is weird isn't it!

Anyways, smiles are for giving aren't they! Now that they are harvested and all safe from locust, grow the next crop of wheat...erm smiles I mean ;)
(I hope this comment serves as a seed!)

//I want to jump.... but i am stuck with my feet glued to the hilltop.

Aha thats good! Maybe in all this melancholy, you failed to notice the trifling detail that you aren't wearing a hang glider!

O Great Glue, I thank thee, you have saved me from losing a friend to a strange case of unintentional suicide!

//I want to drink... but the trip i am in, no drink seems good enough

Aha see! Just like I told you! Basically your tear glands are dehydrated. Drink something hydrating you stupid girl!

//I want to eat... but it just seems a little too tough.

Err I think people have long since found the remedy for tough food. Tried boiling, roasting, baking, etc? Or wait, lets make it more fun!. Order in a pizza or something, claim its tough and have it for free ;)

//I do want to live... but as of now i am just too dead to try that!

Get over it. All you need is some sleep. I know. It happens to me all the time :P

Or maybe just blog!

Err if I am not intruding, may I know what, if anything, is wrong?

Or is this poem just an intellectual excercise ;)!

Please join the ReParty so that we do not worry about the Great Glue unnecessarily ;)

unforgiven said...

Awesome, except for the second and third last lines, they're fit in a bit awkwardly.

Good post.

Sue said...

wow, stupidosaur has immense patience :)

love it! you feel my pain

i want to hug, but you are in a different country!

Pesto Sauce said...

We all want to be so much

Stupidosaur said...

I was just wondering. Are you and 'I walk alone' one and the same person? Or just live/work in the same place?

(Cos a comment from your IP address showed uo with his name.
I guess 'his' name indicates a different person eh ;) )

Stupidosaur said...

Whats the gestation period?
(Since you are supposed to be reborn, which involves being born, though again.)

The Listener said...

I can accompany u for all...these wud make a good weekend :)

Paradox Philic said...

I walk alone - I think its becoming never ending for me too!

Stupidosaur - Thanks buddy for trying to wake me up from my semi dead state. I am still working on it! And no me & "I walk alone" are not the same person. In fact we are not even in the same country.

Unforgiven - Thanks man! Glad u liked some part, if not all.

Sue - Even the idea of a hug helps me these days. I am holding on to any possible shred of positivity around me. So thanks!

Pesto Sauce - My problem is that i dont want to be anything as of now.

The Listener - I so agree...and i am so in need of at this very moment!
