Vision

It seems like

The distortions in the sky,

Far beyond my reach

Is trying to lure me.

 

But It’s all hazy and

I’m not sure whether

It’s the atmosphere or

Just my poor imagination.

 

My mind is highly manipulative

And It tries to correct things

Despite the fact that

It’s Perfectly alright.

 

I wish that my eyes would work

Just like the way my mind does

It never works without an aid

It has been dependent, until now.

 

Everyone’s behind the resolution

And all that’s trending

Life isn’t everybody’s piece of cake

But they sell it anyway.

 

This is the end of the road and

There’s nothing beyond this point

Don’t let the shimmering sky

Or whatever that is to fool you.

 

I agree that your vision

Is better than that of mine but

When there’s no light around

You’ll only see what I’m able to see.

  1. Hey Pavan! I hope you are doing well. I get multiple vibes from your poem, somewhere it’s dark, mysterious, confusing, thought-provoking! Your thoughts are very intense. The ending lines are dark. It’s like a challenge to the world to go ahead and try to find the twinkling stars in the blackness. 🤔

    Also, I would like to know why you said that the eyes should work like the mind? That part was a bit confusing to me.

    1. Hey, Chandni! It’s good to see you here. Thank you so much for reading the post; your comment sounded much more like a review! Thank you for all the time you’ve spent here.
      Eyes, yes! They’re my eyes to be specific. My mind is able to think clearly because it has an ability to think (it’s made to do so!).But my eyes don’t do what they’re supposed to do – to see clearly. I have a poor eyesight and I’m obliged to wear spectacles (for short-sightedness). I’m currently running on contact lenses but there it is – the dependency.
      There’s more but I’d like to stop this here because I really don’t think that I’d stop talking about all of this.

    The last few verses speak of the stark reality that’s life. Light may bring differences in our vision but darkness stays just the same for all of us irrespective of what our eyes were used to in the light. We simply need to get accustomed to the common blackness binding us.

    1. I agree! Yes, you’re right there.
      It’s hard to find out what people are up to in the darkness and there’s this fact that nothing can be seen. Well, I wish to stop there. I’m running low on thoughts lately!
      Thank you so much for stopping by and for talking sharing your thoughts too.
