The Fault

The Fault short poem

Uploaded by Prajvi Mandhani

This poem is On the basis of the thought written by Shakespeare in Julius Caesar , ” the fault dear brutus is not in our stars but in ourselves ”

They searched and searched
Their entire life
For a fault across the line
For a fault in their fate
For a fault in their stars
They argued for where the fault would be
They cried tears
So they can search the oceans too
The papers were signed
And they were lawfully drifted apart
The fault was yet to be found
While their hearts slowly got lost
They blamed it on destiny
For god made a fault in their life
For the tales were written wrong
For the souls in their fate were diverging
For they were never parallel
For they could never meet
They applied maths
They applied science
But they never applied what never has to be applied
As the fault was never in their fate
Was never in their destiny
Was never in their vows
The fault was never in their stars
But was in themselves

My Fault

My Fault short poem

Your genome was climbing down. I hate to count the steps. Feathers hurt sometimes after the end of flying. How far was the moment of dust? You were still swimming in saline water. A collective guilt will pay the price.

Its Not My Fault

Its Not My Fault short poem

Don’t blame it on me if I have fallen for you Your eyes are so intense and kills me too, This feeling is love and after ages I felt I am free from so many cages It’s your look that
