The Red Couch!

Magpie 93 – Photo provided by Magpie Tales

I walk a lonely road,
Everyday too and fro,
I work whole day and night,
With less Sleep,food,
While I walk,i see
An imaginary red couch,
That wants me to sit on it
I look at it and walk away,
I see behind ,it invites me
I toil hard in front of Computer
Writing codes and making  Sheets,
I sit on the chair,
My back aches,migraine,
Work pressure,Stress.
When I go back home,
I see the same red couch,
That wants me to sit on it,
I ignore and walk away.
This Cycle repeats and goes on,
Everyday I disappoint it,
But today I accepted it,
And sat on it with a smile,
Realized what life was like,
The first time in my life,
And it feels so great,
I look around the world,
I feel so amazed.
It teaches me to make time,
During the busy hours,
take some rest,breaks,
thats all what I desire,
Now everyday I look at it,
The Red Couch Smiles at me.

PS - I seldom write poems and I guess it was just another attempt at writing a poetry. Feedbacks are appreciated

  6. Time out is always a good idea...

  7. This one reminds me of Henry Davis Leisure poem" we have no time to stand and stare".
    Now you made me go look for a couch to rest.

  8. I walk a lonely road,
    And I wish someone out there,
    Just once just in case,
    Would find me again,
    And guide me home....

    Till then I walk a lonely road,
    Shadows are the only ones,
    Beside me :)

    I loved the lines of your poem and this made write the above ones..reminded me of the song Boulevard of Broken dreams :)
