Canvas

Blues and hues
with yellow intact
In pools of black
That often turned red

Saw the rainbows and greys
All splashes of shades,
Aye dyed home in brown
when purple dreams beckoned,

A little orange mixed
In palette of green
Brushes and rushes
To repaint recolor

Still pink held the background
Loud and strong;
This is SHE
Her canvas said it all;


I always wanted to write a poem with a unified theme of metaphors, and this happened as a happy accident while describing a picture. You can see that picture on my IG here.

Rainbow

I was searching something
Of interest
In this room full of
Black and white
And here you come
With all shades of
Rainbow in your eyes.

A black out!

I had always heard people saying,” I just blacked out, I don’t remember anything” I always wondered how a body can go unconscious suddenly and mind doesn’t know anything.

When I was in 8th grade ,singing praise and worship songs in the morning assembly,there was one of my classmates right next to me . She was smiling ,we all were. And suddenly I feel a movement strange from the previous, I turn briskly and see her body collapsing . Like a building collapses if you attack its base, she was collapsing , falling on the ground with utter velocity .I catched her in my arms, teachers came to help, her eyes were half open. I remember asking her if she remembered a bit . She just said,”I remember dancing and I couldn’t see then and the next is I was in this room.” That was strange for me.

Now I know what a complete blackout is, maybe I’m sharing this because I want people to know if they ever in life deal with it. They know the strangeness you feel at that time is completely normal. Or maybe just because I want to share. It’s a reason good enough right? Best thing is you never need a reason to right , you feel it , you do it!

So I was walking towards the rest room from my chair which was 25 meters away. I felt strange numbness in my ears as if they weren’t here. I couldn’t concentrate on what others were saying. Then I felt very light like I’m a feather which could just fly . This was too much so I settled down on a chair. After 1 minute, I felt better so I headed again for the washroom.

The distance left was just 10 metres, I was about to touch the door of the washroom ,when the numbness returned. I couldn’t again hear the sounds of outside, I tried shaking my ears to feel something. I couldn’t. I felt my body weighing too much to handle for me so I catched the railing which was near. And the next I know my hands are shivering like nuts, they were just giving up ,they couldn’t hold me more. I again tries to reach someone or that door. In that moment it just felt I need to reach my destination,I took a step and I couldn’t see anything, faint sounds could be heard. I was falling down but I was resisting ,I was willing to stand up but I couldn’t order my body, it was not under my control. So I was falling down in slow motion or at least I felt so. It was like I was floating in space throughout the fall, I stretched my hands for something to grasp ,to feel something real, there was nothing, I craved the ground. When I finally touched it, a person came rushing towards me to pick me up. It was just her might that she made me stand up as my body wasn’t responding to her much . But when I stood up on my legs ,all the senses returned gradually. And I realised that I blacked out for few seconds. And I also became conscious in a fewer.

*These were all the details of about 25 seconds as I couldn’t grasp the time accurately.
