One name


One name spells eternity,

the life of every dream,

swaying with the breeze

of meandering confusion

to survive every nightmare

of ever dwindling sleep.


One name stands tall

as proof

of the heart's longing

to continue beating

despite the everlasting distance

from then to now.


One name spells it all-

the reason for my being,

the existence which defies all meaning.


One name travels through time

in the chariot

of my heart's desires-

to continue the journey with me.

oh! i thought it was a pre-relationship thought.

now i guess it's a post relationship one.

Phoenix said...

and then again, someone said, what's in a name? :)

PoisOn CoAtEd ELiXir said...

acid tongue:
keep guessing ;)

Phoenix:
i believe that every name is its own person.
those who say whats in a name are trying to find their self.isnt it?

Dream Catcher said...

oh ha ha ha...
nice..well everywhere here the name is written n dont knw y ppl asking the name..

name..unknown somewhere
in ashes of eyes they stare
its jst symphony of self being
callous wishes and a golden ring

@ phoenix

beautiful.But what's then and now? :) 'one name' doesn't have an identity.That's about it.

Dream Catcher:
the addict knows the drug-best of all ;)

Purple deepens:
then and now
is what was
and what is
let us leave it at this ;)

pRicky said...

but a single name doesnt ever define you...
but I guess the motion of the house would suggest seconding Phoenix...
So A lawyer... Interesting. So do you tend to read the not so recent posts often???

PoisOn CoAtEd ELiXir said...

Surjit:
Thank you!
Glad u visited :)

Rajeev:
Hope to hold your interest.
Thank you :D

Nothingman:

I did ask myself whether I am my name.
The answer that i got was that i am my name and a hundred million other things. but my name is me along with all those hundred million things.
Thats precisely why its unique.

Also, when i wrote the poem, I didnt intend for it to be about the writer's name ;)
But then again, once my poem has left my mind and my notepad, it becomes as much mine as it is of every reader. And it was only when u pointed out, I re-read it and i agree now-that it could have been taken for the writer's own name.
"to each his own."
:)
Glad u liked it.
Do come back!

PoisOn CoAtEd ELiXir said...

Everything burns:
Thank you for your visit and your comment surely is a compliment ;)
Hope u come back.

Jeya:
Thank you for taking out time for my blog.
Glad u liked the poem :)

Priky:
The poem was not intended to be about the poet's own name.
But then ,"to each his own."
as i said to nothingman, I did ask myself whether I am my name.

Well, i aint a lawyer, not yet.
I dont have any sorts of aversion to old posts or reading them, but once I find a Good one, I always leave a compliment :)

yours was truly amazing!

WHAT'S IN A NAME ? said...

I like you poems too. They always seem to speak in subtle tones such understated agonies. ....Can't thank you enough for that 'heart-ballooning' comment on my officially first story. I hope the blogosphere provided more channels of communication...than just typing cmmnts at each others space.

WHAT'S IN A NAME ? said...

And going by your catalog, I am sure u r one BIG fan of Mistry. I want to read him too...but oddly I can't find any e-books. If you have soem link , could u plz send em one.? I would be very grateful.

PoisOn CoAtEd ELiXir said...

What's in a name:
I'm glad u liked my work-its a compliment on its own. you write amazingly well. and i was serious about the book
well u can communicate via my "shoutbox" in the right column, which is like instant messaging and not quiet so ;)

regarding mistry, well, i have almost completed reading all his works. his best ones would be family matters and a fine balance, you should start with either of the two.
dont miss reading him, he is too good. im sorry i dont have any e-book links :(

Somehow im unable to open your blog :(

The Lass said...

PoisOn CoAtEd ELiXir said...

the lass:
with all the appreciation and encouragement from all of you guys, i'll try to keep writing :)
thank you for stopping by.
by the way whats your name?

oblique-skeptic said...

"...despite the everlasting distance

The one name, it seems to matter so much doesn't it. It seems to be the everything you could ever want to hear.

But, pta nahi. After some time, and after a few bad things hav happened, you start hating the same name.

PoisOn CoAtEd ELiXir said...

Oblique skeptic:
yes, there are names that become "irrelevant" with time. they kind of occupy the back seat of our thoughts and memories, but then they dont become "the" name or more adequately, that "one" name and thats the telling thing!
