Peephole

is-10

she wondered
why everything is so burdensome
so mortifying
has she become a nondescript
over the days,she does not know!
a sense of paranoia
why encroaching her body and heart
a shiver she really hates
why the glitter and glitz of gathering,
the presence of known people,old friends
making her feel restless or worthless
a feeling of loneliness
rather than aloneness
the masked people around
fueled by ego scouting
for materialistic richness in everything
to modulate their quantum 
or texture of warmth
peerless they?
snobbish they?
or ignorant they
for not yet 
having moved from
emotional quotient to spiritual quotient!
she whispered..
why can't I change
or why can't they change
who will get them to the peephole
of oneness  and truth
to see the divinity and love
all around!

    So many brilliant lines, so many beautiful lines here!!

    the presence of known people,old friends
    making her feel restless or worthless
    a feeling of loneliness
    rather than aloneness

    for not yet
    having moved from
    emotional quotient to spiritual quotient!

    So much of this suffering is hidden within many who are secretly unhappy.

      Thank you Pragalbha for the inspiring kind words..
      The poem here attempts to portray a phase in life when one feels low , very low & lonely. The situation is compounded by the materialistic people , friends who modulate their warmth based on her richness , successes than who she really is as a person. The connect & warmth people exhibit for other are so painful at times. The vibes of oneness & love are really the keys to beat the ignorance around !
      You are right in summarising the poem in terms of suffering & unhappiness.
      Good times!

        Every truthful individual goes through this turmoil I believe. I agree with you about the oneness and love. My pleasure.
