The Open Dosa

Consuming the Ordinary Differently

A requiem for light

I used to see a tunnel of darkness
Engulfing me as I moved by
Treating me like an unholy heathen
Without ever telling why.

Hope I somehow clung to
I know not how and never have
In this cavern of joys and jewels
All I had was a seat in the back.

An ornithologist I was, and continue to be
Studying forms of life that mystify me
I do not know how this road ends
Maybe I’ll catch life’s fleeting glimpse

Estranged from life
Estranged from fear
However strange I may appear
And I march on with my crutches in hand

Scared? Yes.
Petrified? Absolutely.
Confused? You bet.
I know me as I am for sure.

Why is it then that I don’t succumb to it?
Even when I can almost hear the reaper’s call
I don’t know.
Maybe I never will.

I still wander in this maze
In this maze without a torch at hand
I made forth, with a tired soul
To impending doom, come what may.

So what am I supposed to say
Can I ever be at home again?
Back to the times when I knew light
And darkness kept 6 feet apart

I know not my heading
A blind cartographer I am
Making a map of life blindfolded
Cast out to the void for the reaper’s hand.

    I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody
    else encountering issues with your website. It appears like some of the written text on your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please
    provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them
    too? This may be a issue with my internet browser because I’ve had this
    happen before. Thanks

    Aw, this was an incredibly good post. Taking a few minutes and
    actual effort to make a superb article… but what can I say…
    I procrastinate a lot and don’t manage to get anything done.

    My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from
    PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a variety
    of websites for about a year and am nervous about switching
    to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. However imagine if you
    added some great images or video clips to give your
    posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics
    and videos, this site could definitely be one of the most
    beneficial in its field. Very good blog!
