Conveying what cannot be expressed by speaking is POETRY!!

For me - POETRY is 

A word building,
A brain-vita,
A snake and ladders 
and a cross puzzle too.
sometimes you cannot speak 
what you want to. 
you cannot convey 
what is hidden in you. 
You cannot pull out 
what you feel deep inside. 
You want to take-off the toughness, 
You want to bring down the stress, 
You want to let go the troubling thoughts, 
you just want to cleanse up your mind. 
you then search for a weapon and 
you find a rolling pencil on the ground, 
a rough book in a messy cupboard. 
you start building the words 
to form an array of sentences. 
you read and re-read 
what you had just squiggled. 
it feels so amazing
that what you had scribbled 
turned out to be a POEM now!!!
