I Would Not Write A Sonnet

September 28, 2015 | By

A poetic journey of writing a sonnet inspired by a muse.


When all you wanted was a night lamp and your favourite slim volume

It is like wearing a corset for three thousand years.

And shoving  crumpled pieces of paper down the throat,

When all you wanted was a night lamp and your favourite slim volume.

‘Dark lady’ and “Stella’ s are figments of imagination.

A muse for the sake of a muse –

And under the moon light, beneath your balcony, the serenades and trinkets;

Seemed so passé.

No flowing white gowns or stifling hyperboles.

Shakespeare can take a life long break.

Metres, feet and syllables dissolve.

Till only a thought is left.

A thought that burns and asks the shadow to dance.

Poetry- they call it.
