Stuck in life ?

Around me and you
Everyone seems stuck somewhere
Some in lectures
Others in traffic
Some in meetings
Others in cubicle
Some in queues
Others in rain
Doodling, honking, daydreaming, fretting, waiting, drenching
Whiling.
Dying, deteriorating
Stuck in life, forgetting
Life’s still stuck in them.

N.B. : “You don’t have to do what you don’t want to do.

Your messages
Why don’t they arrive!

For the past hour
Every now and then
I have picked the phone
With eagerness.
Unlocked it
Disappointed
Locked it again.
Logged on the computer
Refreshed the page
A hundred times.
Ah.
That ting-tong I heard
Raises me a bit.
I unlock only to see
That stupid promotional thing.
Disappointment hits hard.
I can not stay quiet.
I can not call you even.
I can not do a thing
Except reading
Our history.
Documented word by word, in the logs
Your smileys, how cute they appear
Interspersed between the lines
Here and there.
As if you really loved.
Really cared.
But,
It’s been fifteen minutes
And you have not replied yet.
17 to be precise.
Maybe you don’t care.
But maybe you do.
This is a thin straw of probability
And I cling to it
Dearly.

Then brilliantly I do it again.
Over and over
Locking unlocking
Picking up
Putting down
Refreshing
Re-reading the history.
History has never appealed to me.
History is mostly made up
By powerful people.
But not this one
We are not powerful people.
Atleast I am not.
This one is not made up.
It is true to every word, comma, colon
Asterisk, brace, exclamation mark and those dots..
Which mean nothing but mean so much.
Possibilities period.
I move in my chair
Try to rock it
Try to spin it around
Unlike the pending assignments
I can not shrug you off.
Nor the thoughts of you.
You do have power
Power over me.
Wait!
You are powerful.
Is this history made up too?
Deliberately edited when live?
And its been more than thirty minutes now.
No, this could not be true
XOXO’s were only for me.
That straw might be thin
But it is strong.

As they say history haunts
But this history solaces
If only for a while.
I realise now
Ticks, single or double
Both can pierce with their rather blunt edges.

In all this
Unlocking locking and refreshing
I am trapped.
Stale as the chat history
Locked as if in a time warp
Restless.

Weird : A collection

The following have been written at random times doing random things. Disconnected from each other but perhaps have the same tone.


Working Hard was never a problem.
Working Hard till you bleed, that is something.
How much will you entertain yourself?
How much will be enough?
No Limits sire,
No Limits.
——————————————————————————————————————————-
Love was a motive which brought me here.
Love has brought me down to my knees.
I now know for sure it is not love.
It was something else.
——————————————————————————————————————————-
Cravings how much i have for you
Only i know
Teased and tensed i lie
Tickled by thought at the same time
Trying to trick but mind does not buy
Desires unfulfilled
Restless I lie.
——————————————————————————————————————————–
The other day i saw you watching me
The ever glinting eyes were dull
The sparkle gone, now moist
Parting is tough
You make it tougher.

Easier too i realise
Your warmth and softness
Behind the bars
Imagining I live and die each day.
——————————————————————————————————————————-
Society has hated me
I have hated it back
Mutual relations you know
Both have lost a lot.
——————————————————————————————————————————–
Wasn’t this predetermined
Everything that will be done and that wont be done.
Everything was written.
Vile existence. Insects Animals Humans.
——————————————————————————————————————————–
Wish i could smoke a cigar
How tough it can be
Holding Puffing Lightness
It is thick though.

The Zen of Python, by Tim Peters

Beautiful is better than ugly.
Explicit is better than implicit.
Simple is better than complex.
Complex is better than complicated.
Flat is better than nested.
Sparse is better than dense.
Readability counts.
Special cases aren’t special enough to break the rules.
Although practicality beats purity.
Errors should never pass silently.
Unless explicitly silenced.
In the face of ambiguity, refuse the temptation to guess.
There should be one– and preferably only one –obvious way to do
Although that way may not be obvious at first unless you’re Dutch
Now is better than never.
Although never is often better than *right* now.
If the implementation is hard to explain, it’s a bad idea.
If the implementation is easy to explain, it may be a good idea.

Namespaces are one honking great idea — let’s do more of those!
