Once Sitting by Ranvijay Rathore

Once sitting, I heard a melancholy string
Which was unfamiliar but still was a part of me;
It seemed that someone who never cared about me
Began to care…

“Is it real or just a show” I thought,
And just then the crystal ball broke which made me understand
That this world is fake;
With selfish people in it.

Here you are cared for when you are at a height,
But forgotten, when you really need them;
You care for those who forget your name,

Often you loved those, who’ve stabbed your heart;
You have friends everywhere, but not a single to call real;
Is this what you deserved? Must be not,
But still you are rewarded with this

Bitterness for love
Tears for care
Hate for kindness,
“A rolling stone for a pure heart”

  1. please don’t be so bitter! I know poets are extra- sensitive (I am one myself), yet, life is many other and wonderful hues! of course I am nobody to ‘preach’ but I felt your angst and couldn’t hold back myself.

  2. Your emotions run deep and you are sensitive which makes it harder when you hurt.  Please be gentle with yourself; remember what Kahlil Gibran said “The deeper sorrow carves its furrows into your soul, the more joy you can contain.”  Just think of all the joy you will be filled with rather than the sorrow.  Blessings and a poem with immediate pain; I can feel it myself.

  3. yes we are such a confused lot! We want to love the person who does not want to love back, turn away from the person who is filled with love, always desire what we don’t have and lose sight of the tens of thousands of blessings that surround us. I guess I have just described the term “humans” there : )

  4. In today’s world, it is so hard to know who we should trust and who we should stay away from.  It is a shame that we have to question one’s gestures to see if there are strings attached.  But, for every selfish person in our life, there is someone who is genuine and real; there is someone who loves us and we can trust them.  They may not be in our life forever, but appreciate them for the time that they are with us.  Then, there are others that come and go according to who we are and where we are in our life.  That is what I call ‘both sides of the coin’, my friend 🙂
    Great writing!  Enjoyed it!
