Sometimes I feel, I Amaze Myself


Sometimes I feel, 

I amaze myself. 

Baffling? Maybe,

but I do feel sometimes.

I feel thus, especially 

when I happen to have

a look at something

I wrote sometime in the past. 

Was that me, who penned…keyed

the piece or poem?

The very words, diction, 

suddenly seem

so unfamiliar, stranger of me. 

How come I was able

to create thus?

Amazing, truly! 

But create I did, for sure, 

as if the muse

for a while, visited and occupied 

a nook of my inner space,

controlling, virtually

dictating my whole being. 

Under the trance,

I merely played her steno’,

taking dictation, scribbling verbatim,

and with a few touches…

editing, here and there,

looking at the script in wonder.

I just put my name tag

and push it on.

Wasn’t that amazing? Baffling?

At least to me,

it was!

It shall always be!

  1. Wow sir this is so real. Even I have felt what you are trying to say here, whenever I have seen my previous works, I use to wonder how can a mediocre guy like me write so much interesting, no sir I am not exaggerating it but this is genuine.
    Nice post sir .
