Why do I write?


Why do I write?

A question much like advice

Whose answer I do know and don’t

Hidden in my veins, heart and eyes.


Do I need to know why I write?


I write because I must

I can’t handle it, it’s like a lust

But more than that, let’s say

It’s my one and only true lover in sight.


This is why I write.


It’s the fountain that quinces my thirst

Gives my dying soul a re-birth

It makes me take my breath

When the world seems to end my life.


This is why I write.


It’s a vent to give out my pain

To stop my mind from being lame

To close the pores that may

Slash my heart like a knife,


This is why I write.


I write because I can,

Because it doesn’t desert me, does not ban

My feelings, my words, my thoughts

And always supports me in my plight.


This is why I write.


I write because its free

And is just like planting a tree

For changes, revolutions, notions,

To bring back the freedom out of sight.


This is why I write.


These are all explanations to the quest,

Enough to pass a test,

But there’s a secret again in my heart that:

It’s my soul’s god’s advice!


And it is not in my own hands not to write…


I cant live without it, my friend!

Can’t think of doing so with all the world’s wealth in hand

You think I m wasted? I love being so….

For it heals my burnt soul like ice.

(and tell you, it’s my life)


I can’t think to live without my life,

This is why I write.





The piece of poetry I had been longing to sculpture since ages.  It came out when I read the daily prompt at “http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2012/11/21/daily-prompt-last-words/?like=1&_wpnonce=53d959a0ec

ie, your last post!!! (no, this isn’t, but I want it to be the one if ever)

I wanted to tell people about myself in it, but then I thought; I always express myself in poetry or prose or any other form of writing, so why not write why I do write?



Yes, this is the reason. Because I love to write.

 And love may have thousands of reason, but then, it is reasonless too.

It’s a part of my paradox, enjoy it!


Loves to all my readers,

      its almost the same for everyone Trisha, we love it like anything…its life, so we cant live without it!

      like being addicted, but atleast not with drugs or smoke or fb even! 😀

      • Sharmishtha says:

          Yes, I amnt. I like it at times, but mostly its a time waste.
          I mean, virtual friends, virtual life…wow! unbelievable! I hate it at times how people forget the birthdays of their near and dear ones and wish a “virtual” and unknown one heartily….and many other things too.

          its good for wasting ones time…

          I used to be a bit in it, but since I started blogging, I got even better virtual friends like you all, who, at least have some decent topics to talk on….
          I mean, its lot better…a but of fb and stuffs is OK, but being addicted…nope! I can be addicted of only 3 things, reading, writing and music. A bit art work is worthy too. Nature is worthy of our time…friends and family are there.
          But not other than that. I mean…wooo! this is going long!
          I think we should have a discussion on this topic! shouldn’t we?

Wanna pay me back? Sorry, no cash or credit allowed, we only except words here.... :P
