About The Bottomless Pitcher

One that never fills but still overflows….

A barrel of water for some

A bucketful of tears for the other

A pocketful of love for one

A volcano of fears for the other

How do I describe this pitcher?

One that never fills but still overflows

No matter how high I brim it

It still overflows….

What fills it up I wish I knew?

my belief of God or my love for you

Joy and smiles or Despair and tears

Peace and strength or anger and fears

I feel it’s like a brain

Sensitive but strong and sane

Maybe it’s a heart

Gullible and fragile but not so smart

It acts like a door

Left ajar to let one know more

One who keeps changing with time

Walks in, walks out not caring a nickel or a dime!!!!

A glass door, Please handle with care

It leads to the pitcher, Thou shalt not dare

Enter at your risk, Leave at your will

It may be locked, you break it until….

Everytime I allow someone

Everytime I let go of one

Everytime one enters and spends the night

Everytime one leaves turning off the light

Everytime one knocks but I never hear

Everytime one intends to enter but doesn’t in fear

Everytime one storms out breaking the door

Everytime one enters, stays; expecting some more

This pitcher again furiously overflowed

Invisible tears poured, poured and poured

Wish I wish it could simply just leak

Chances I go finding a Plumber-Ah so bleak!!!!

The door made of glass,

The door to my heart

My heart- that’s the pitcher

One that never fills but still overflows….

Always short poem

How will you carry the mount of tears in the vally of temples? Kites flowing in sky of beings-egos-denials and repeals. Smiling at pain I unspeak to a keeper of cage, under the shadow of golden roses, walking with blue
