The test

Flustered, irate, confused.
Love it isn't, too obtuse.
Heartstopping? Not.
More of an excuse..
Confounded, I stand
Try and seek you in stars
Then turn back
To desolate, ignored yards.

Winding roads before me
Too big a quest.
Praying as I walk
I will not
Should not
Pass this test..

I remember these lines:
'I will not
Should not
Pass this test'.

Again, still pondering over it.

Merin Mandanna said...

Yes,yes!! :) Now I remember! :) :) Found the lines(then, in a different context I think) just as fascinating, even now.

@ Merin:
Thanks. Doesn't this template make the blog look more 'readable' than the green template? Had to strain my eyes on that..or maybe it was just my monitor. :|

@ Vinay:
I grew up, that's all. :))

Nice piece.

Prakash said...

Niache piece.
Still funny, I had been bored watching out for people praying to pass the test, feels good to see a change. :)

Purab said...

Do you remember me telling you this was your best ever when you wrote it? I see changes..Why did you decide to put it up two years after it was written?
