Modern Literature

I’m rarest of the rare
More like a solar super flare
Leave it you can’t comprehend
I’m blessed with something godsend
With the talent of making words rhyme,
Capable of teleporting readers every goddamn time,
To places in their memory or their fantasy,
Sometimes they cry, sometimes there’s ecstasy.

You will say
there are others too,
Who got the same old cliche
To offer to you.

Authenticity has gone scanty,
Copy of a copy of a copy is becoming trendy.
As a millennial and as a poet,
Can’t stand people calling posers so lit.

Your falling attention span,
Is depriving you,
From what real connection can,
But even several flings can’t do.

World is conceiving wrong notion of poetry,
And even we’re guilty,
For ignoring them just as different,
Labelling fart as a scent.

All they want is your attention to fuel their number,
Turning a single sentence to poetry by pressing enter.
Whereas we cater verses with subliminal thought in it.
Same words give deeper meaning every time you revisit.

  7. so true Mahesh
    just one sentence and lakhs of likes.
    No emotions, no thoughts nothing.While people who actually put in efforts creating verses, rhyming weaving thoughts and emotions in words are often ignored.You have penned it all so beautifully

    1. In today’s world, when you just have to swipe to get new content to consume, most of the people don’t want to spend much time to read and appreciate the poetry, this is the main reason why two-liners are getting more likes.
