saintly mind gets lubricated

brash words on that message board
crash to the ground
like a saint you stand there
listening to the reverberating sound
it is your doing or undoing
(have it your own way,
think what you like)
one by one, everyone walks away
you stand there alienated

if only you had lubricated your mind
you wouldn't put those words out there
and suffered because of it


There has been no end to my PC woes. I desperately need a new one and looking for the best offer. Until then my appearances would be sporadic. What else can you expect, when I am using my nephew's PC! Until I get a new computer, please bear with me.

Well put, I've learned the lesson, there's only you!!! good luck with the comp, I'll check on you every now and then ;)

I like the poem--hope you get your computer woes solved soon--its a pain when the computer doesn't cooperate!

that is woeful. not the poem, the situation. My laptop died a couple of months back and I realized that I'm addicted

There's a lot of truth in this one. I like the message.

Hope your computer problems are solved soon - we miss you when you don't post! Loved the poem - learning to use the brain before opening the mouth is a hard lesson :)

It is a machine afterall and even though they seem "magical", they do wear out.

Phew, Nicely Gautami, this machine is knackered too, but it's better than the one I was using before, hope you can resolve your probs soon.

Congrats on your 100th follower!
