Poetry and Reality – Facts about a Poetic Life Unveiled

 

Reality is all about facts and figures while poetry is all about self gratification, pain, love and surrealism. Reality pulls you back while poetry makes you fly. You keep juggling between your thoughts and your action. There is profoundness, there is hope, there is lust in poetry but there are only truths and lies in the world of reality. You are sandwiched between them and finally you choose one. You love to be in your reality because that gives you everything that you want. Intruding more into imagination can be dangerous. It can make you somewhat an alien in world where everything is so real. Yet, some people love to stay in a world of their own. A self created kingdom where they get everything they desire. They are not insane rather they are the sanest beings because they feel life from within. They smile, they cry and finally they fly. The wings of imagination can take them to place where they see nightingales. They get seduced by their dreams. They are poets, writers, artists and musicians. They are the people who entertains you, makes you smile and cry. They are the creators. They know the art of molding realities into beautiful tales of hope.

Facts about a Poetic Life Unveiled


Oh music! Every time you feel sad, every time you become happy, every time when you feel nothing – music comes to your rescue. It makes you feel better. You get transported to world where everything looks so fine and a poetic life is all about feeling the unseen facets of life through your vivid thoughts. You can choose it anytime.

Broken hearts, unseen existence and loneliness exude poetry. Sometimes you love to stay alone. Sometimes you love to stay disconnected.  Reality keeps knocking your door but you just ignore them. Your silence becomes your weapon and then you write- you scribble, you sing, you dance, you do everything.

Poetic life is not only about loneliness, beauty, dreams, music and heart breaks. It can be a life of extreme passion. It can be so full of introspection. You have nothing to lose. You gain many things including life’s hidden offerings. There is so much love here. You’ll find everybody smiling and caressing each other in a poetic life. You will find bliss. But you can’t stay here throughout your life because there is a life outside your imaginations, there are people outside your house, there are opportunities knocking your door. Poetry is momentary but reality is so very everlasting. Escaping from reality mayn’t be so easy. In an ever changing world, a poet is just like a foolish babbler who keeps blabbering and nobody ever listens to him because he talks crazy, he lives in his insanity, he rejects reality and eventually he becomes a loner. So, in order to live life, we have to drink poetry as well as face reality with equal ease. There is so much love so little time and so much work to do…

Thanks reality and poetry for visiting my life. I am blessed to have you both.


Keep reading…

  2. Wonderful composition!

    Imagine what would it have been without the measure of poetry in our lives?

    We wouldn't have known Blake's Tiger burning, or Miles's stopping by the woods, or Tennyson's Brooke, or Wordsworth's Daffodils.......and so many many more!

  3. Thanks Lazy Pineapple and Rakesh for appreciating my thoughts. Life without poetry is similar to life without a meaning. Keep humming, keep penning, and keep smiling :)

    Writing the day as it should feel
    Writing the day , all poets' zeal
    Writing a life "in other words"
    Writing to fly as high as birds

    This is my daily private challenge.

  11. wonderful post Pallav.. very true that poetry and reality both are necessary in life.. really it's a half life without poetry or say music.
    So beautiful these lines are 'Poetic life is not only about loneliness, beauty, dreams, music and heart breaks. It can be a life of extreme passion. It can be so full of introspection. You have nothing to lose. You gain many things including life’s hidden offerings. There is so much love here. You’ll find everybody smiling and caressing each other in a poetic life. You will find bliss.'

    thanks for such a nice read.
