faceless yet concrete

I have missed the interaction-
the love that we share over the net
faceless to each other yet so concrete
I thought I would survive
yet there was this emptiness-
kind of a vacuum I never anticipated

now it seems I was away from home-
the place where I am myself,
my random musings tied in thread
unravelled only by creativity of others-
the ones, who understand the insanity
of unprocessed writings

here on this space I can speak my mind-
read yours too, none being judgemental


I have not been interacting with my fellow poets and/writers lately. It was more due to work, that is, census duty, which finished yesterday. After I submitted my reports, I feel so light. It was one huge work and I was in a lot of stress. I did like being a part of the exercise though.

I did post poems but restricted visiting others, due to time constraints. I have missed reading my fellow poets' works. My poem comes out of that. I have tried writing it line by line. Now that I am free, I will go back to commenting.

I can relate to this, because I quit blogging about 4 years ago and am JUST returning to it myself. Expresses just what I'm feeling at this moment. :)

Iknow exactly what you mean! This poetry community does feel like home and I miss it when I'm busy.

You expressed it perfectly!

I, too, have been absent from blogging for quite a while due to an illness that left me too weak to do ANYTHING. Welcome back to both of us!

Isn't it curious that fellow bloggers become friends through their posts yet in normal circumstances their paths would never cross.

I do find we are very kind to each other. However I do think we are judgemental though, as we tend not to post a comment to a piece we do not care for or do not understand.

Having posted I do appreciate your work!

Blogging is a little like a home where minds settle together connecting with ideas! We are faceless and yet we found our identity here! An interesting piece of writing!
