My Mind (reblogging an updated version)

Let me give you a ride
And take you inside to this site
To give you some insight
Into the arena of my simple mind

It’s been a while since I found sleep by my side
It’s just this one little thing with me
Too many thoughts are nesting inside
Questioning me day & night, the meaning of life

I feel like detonating my thoughts at times
To simply blow up my own mind
To make some space during the sleepless nights
To change those formless kinds into this form of rhymes

My mind often wears no armor under roaring skies
Unlike that strong dark knight in olden times
Covered in steel & gold in those bloodthirsty fights
That used to kill to conquer for ego & pride

My mind phrases these words & scatter them on this dark page
Just like the shining stars sprinkled all over the dark space
The constellation of burning stars you see far far away
Where the unknown finally meets its ace, the card of spades

  1. Navin, you know, the words flow beautifully, but I’m also struck by how the stanzas somehow get longer and longer, one after the other… it really captures the imagination and draws one attention to each subsequent stanza and then back again to the beginning with curiosity 🙂

  3. This was a wonderful ride..and to echo David’s comment, I see your stanzas elongating…and ..that happens to me too..As you enter the word flow..it takes you downstream and little details like word count… mean nothing..I loved that flow in this poem, but Navin, please don’t blow up all those words:) Dance with them, ride them down your ingenious rapids…I just did:)
