The vignettes of then and now

Most of the time we have to remember the past to reconcile and have better understanding of what happening today. This poem shows paradox, how a writer struggle for himself.

The vignettes of then and now

Dear comrade,
I invite you to reminisce;
The blank paper you used to write onto
The smoke from a cigar
Casting ideas, creating pictures
How you filled those blank spaces
With memories of ideals.

Dear friend,
It's been a while then.
Now your like don't exist no more
Despodently I pick your pen
But my veins don't remember
Like a flimsy child strayed.
I need your courage.
I need your strength.

Vividly thoughts came-

It's not you but me who forgot
All this time of wondering
I didn't realized,
I should not have wanted.
Now I'm clinging on past.

Holding this pen,
I write you a letter.

I love being a writer, it gives us the opportunity to tell stories, to create a character, to design a situation and be God of our own writing.
