Poetry : Solace hidden in a Box

find solace near you - auraofthoughts

U tiptoed in my life quiet and calm

New place to adjust and find warmth

Your shining contour gleamed so bright

Connection with U was a super delight

Me just stared you from afar

A little hesitant with confused altar

I wished a smooth journey with smile

Shared my lonely stories with pride

U always attracted and called many times

Soft and resonating your speech like a chime

U too had much to share and showcase

Colorful stories from past and present instance.

That cupid bow atlast was struck

Channelled me to new woods and husk

Me slowly gathered courage to sit near you

Dwelled in talks that seemed magical hue

Slowly I drifted away from the outside world

Only resonated in my mind were your musicals

I often laughed and cried with U

Found solace that was overdue

U Me U, we make a great pair

My TV you transported me in your glare

to a world that looked so fair

I left all my worries for you to take care.

In life, sometimes what we need a deviation so that when we bounce back to carry on life with greater zeal. And at times, we do not want all the learnings or teachings, we just need a detour so that we can listen to our inner voice, and a piece of entertainment can do that. A TV airs diverse subjects, it gives you answer, sometimes makes you smile or it can happen you watch a show/movie and let all emotions outflow through tears.

At times materialist items can also give you a quantum of comfort to rejuvenate in roller coaster life.
