Unnoticed

I hide
Behind my eyes
Visions
Of magnificence

I hide
Behind my thoughts
Feelings
Of freedom

I hide
Behind my dreams
An imagination
Of decadence



My visions, feelings and imagination
Make
The magnificence of freedom almost decadent
That they need to hide
Behind my
Eyes, thoughts and dreams

Agree -- could relate to every word that you've written.

"almost decadent" - wise indeed!

Samudraa said...

Needless to say i liked it...cud absolutely emphatise with the 2nd para!

but the pic and the verse.....if there was a sync and i failed to see it,wud u spoil it by helping me see it?

Aradhita said...

If you (and me) are the most important people in your world, then I am sure it didnt go unnoticed!

AmitKen said...

'The magnificence of freedom almost decadent'

lovely... :)

Akruti said...

I stopped commenting here and became a silent admirer,for whenever i come here,words leave me and silence fills the gaps.
Hats off to you for every bit of writing which i see here:)

jaded said...

wow that was amazing...

the poem is so damn real for me and that line:
'The magnificence of freedom almost decadent'

kudos mate this line is haunting...

Ram said...

the lines are so agreeable.. but as samudraa has mentioned, not able to get the pic connection really..

gulnaz said...

am struck by the beauty and brilliance of your word-play and how you use form to accentuate the feelings! i'm too awestruck to leave a proper comment!

i can relate to hiding.

:..M..: said...

*grin* Interesting. Quite interesting.

rusty said...

Your blog has magic embellished in its every picture.....and your words are reminiscent of old songs....

Paul said...

And what is behind the place they all hide?

Sorry, I was on a Buddhist blog recently...

Jithu said...

transience said...

those chairs bring your words to life.

mermaid said...

You may hide them, but you let small pieces of wisdom escape with the pictures you post and the words you create to accompany them.

Itineranting said...

Upon a couple of readings, one can lift the veil off the school of words, & find an insightful thought, that would perhaps make for an interesting dialogue...but wont encumber your poetry with the sword of analysis on what lies behind..

jawaher said...

that is wounderful ..........u can use words in the way that can't come 2 my mind easily ...u are creative mashallah ...and pls dont 4get 2 tell me about ur secret with augest ok???by the way i love january most cos i was born in 20th of january :)

Pecos Blue said...

I like this very much. It was in itself decadent!

stan laurel said...

It is so easy to hide behind ourselves, or within ourselves. We feel safe.

Hope said...

very beautiful thoughts. Moved my senses. I want to link your blog, I hope you don't mind.

Daniel said...

Hey, A, almost 1 year! Congratulations, and amazing work (as it continues to be amazing!).

I'm particularly partial to August (as it is my birth month), so it is an auspicious name. What are you going to do with your counter now?

By the way, I have been steadily reading (although not commenting every time). I love the photos you've added; it adds a whole new dimension.

Congratulations on great work, and keep it up! You are an inspiration!

exquisite.

Geetanjali said...

Interesting...

luz de la luna said...

great combination of image and words, as always. :-)

This one didn't have the emotional impact of the others, for me, but maybe because I didn't relate to it all that well :-)

Brood Mode said...

a lot of hidden thoughts surfaced when i read this...

awesome!

Wbix said...

and i really liked it too. wonder why... Reminded me of a friend, who says behind her veil is a real woman who dreams and lives her dreams.

Extempore said...

The writing is lovely to say the least but what blew me away was the unbelievable and exquisitely perfect juxtaposition of the image and the poem. :)

J said...

i cant seem to be able to relate to any optimism whatsoever.
Will come back later to comment :(

yvaine said...

Wow.

But why hide?

_Soulless_ said...

Intriguing. ^_^

The title is most apt. To go by "unnoticed"... Hmm. There's a certain species of comfort in that.

Free Spirit said...

Reminds me of my Psychology class long ago, where things are not as simple as they seem to appear.

Anonymous Poet said...

"Visions Of magnificence;" "imaginationof decadence." Great lines!

Have you checked ou "Life as Art" at my site? It has a similar (but less reserved) theme. I imagine you might like it.

Also, I have another post up at my site if you want to stop by. Thanks again for your interest!

Jyotsna said...

These are magical thoughts that you have spun into words that are profound,true and revealing..
Hiding...behind our eyes,thoughts,dreams...yes i have the feeling we all do!

>|' ; '| said...

somehow, i felt like i was the one who was speaking through the verses..

Lorena said...

beautifully written. reading the title helped to understand the photograph. so much can be read here. very nice.

KJ said...

wow as usual:)

have a nice day....

finnegan said...

Paul said: And what is behind the place they all hide?

I believe it's the chicken. Or wait, maybe it's the egg, or was it one hand getting slap-happy?

Where was this photo taken? It looks internationally familiar---like a great place to hide.

livinghigh said...

giggles @ finn's comment to paul's. :)

isnt it funny how some places are internationally anonymous. little spheres of your world in every corner of the world.

Samudraa said...

Seems A is hidding for too long now!;)

Anonymous said...

A poignant poetry pregnant with pearls of wisdom...
I have been a silent spectator of your blog since quite some time; this work truly is impressive!
How in the world do you do it?! But please do keep writing...
