Transitory Bliss


While searching something

I scrolled up a chat

I came across a conversation

That had been long forgotten

A dramatic narration

To an old friend

Of a critical discussion

I once had with my father

We had laughed our lungs out

At my talent

Of the humourous representation

Of my story and its characters

I didn’t know then

That the bliss was transitory

That it would vanish

Into thin air someday

I never knew that I would

Take his remark seriously

To write about

My conversations with him


In response to Let it Bleed 23

  1. Isn’t it interesting how we can see the same thing in different light, depending on where we are in life/ our mood, etc? That’s why, before people get offended, I encourage them to take a step back and re-evaluate if they are hearing what is being said, or what they THINK is being said.

    1. Yes, you are right. I’ve seen my perception on one thing change over time. Or I may say that as I grow mature as an individual, my perception on the same thing evolves.
