All in a game.

For once,
let us just pretend,
everything to be all right.

And while we pretend to forget,
the pain lets for once, forget,
to pretend.

Take Care.

you are amazing!! writing something like that - writing hundreds of lines is easier.. fitting hundreds of lines worth of stuff in THREE is a talent. :)

Purba said...

From what I see from the mile long comments, someone's aesthetic blasphemy has earned him a legion of female fans...And I know why :)

Wings of Harmony said...

Just few lines and so thoughtful. The first pic of the Happy/sad apple made me go "Awwww". :):D Lovely Post Blasphemous Asthetic! :D

Blessed Be!

Asma Khan said...

A secret for happiness :)

Jyoti Mishra said...

Pretend everything is all right and then forget ... this can become a fantastic talisman.

Blasphemous Aesthete said...

If someone kept them the way they have been kept here, and not eaten, they'd rot. Now that would be injustice. So, it isn't mean :)

Thank You.

Enlighten us please. There are but a few good men. :)

Thank You :)


Carry it along then :)

Nice msg and apt pics.

Giribala said...

The lines reminded me of this poem by Emily Dickinson:

Heart, we will forget him!
You an I, tonight!
You may forget the warmth he gave,
I will forget the light.
When you have done, pray tell me
That I my thoughts may dim;
Haste! lest while you're lagging.
I may remember him!

Snow Leopard said...

Hmmmm..... (in a thoughtful way). Interesting word play.

Blasphemous Aesthete said...

I ain't complaining :D

Thank You.

Beautiful, frail, and always convincingly unconvincing reason from a mind to the heart.
Thank You for sharing.

A Restless Mind With A Sensitive Heart! said...

That was an occean of comments :)

Really nice one! Pretence is good at times :)

It is said that if you change ur physical posture, and do something playful, your mind adjusts to that activity and u can forget about ur pain for the time being.

btw, ever played with a balloon.. hitting it up like a ball?!!!!



Sonshu said...

Brilliant! Seriously. :) I love the pic too, its so cute.
