Playful Shadow of Reality!



Revealing the truth
In shreds and bits
Some sprinkled here
Some scattered over there;
Revealing the truth
Wearing a mask
So that the readers
Cannot connect all the dots.
Fiction is a playful shadow
Of reality and truth;
Following it loyally
Imitating it in parts.
If the fiction is touching,
Trust that the reality is heart shattering.

  9. We all wear masks to hide the truth for reality is not read about but felt deeply.
    When fiction touches you deeply you have found a great writer.

  25. What beautiful lines, Purba.

  26. Living in Fiction may look sweet and soothing for the present, but the ultimate is truly a pain.. Sticking to Truth forever takes out this end misery.. Very rightly said, Purba.. Hats off to your Poetical Expression Skills!
