My lips once unsettled,
Forming words and emitting sounds,
Now quite quiet.

For some, I have faded
With fading talks.
While some longs,
To hear me ramble.

Now that I’ve distanced myself,
From everything and everyone,
I am walking back to my real self.
Now that I’ve embraced the silence,
I am hearing myself more.

  1. Indeed, Mr Positive. We find ourselves when we spend some time with our own selves. But I know you won’t forget your friends and well wishers. Go embrace your real self, but come back to us after that. 😼 This was really Beautifully written. 💙

    1. It’s awesome + engineers (and inspired by “avengers”)
      I started this blog to write about engineering-related topics but somehow WordPress brought a poet out of me 😁


      1. I’m preparing for civil services, so, the placement isn’t my top priority rn. But my institution has good placement, I was waiting for a job opportunity where I can get time for studies while earning fair income but lockdown happened 😅

      1. I can’t recall who has written this but whoever s/he is, s/he is right –
