Sense and Meaning

Shadows of the mind

Are real or dreams

What does it matter

When it seems real to me?

What is reality,

Why quibble over semantics,

When the fear and joy is real

That they instil in me.

Truth and fact

Don’t matter for me,

Context and


Are what get me across the path

Every moment

Has it been an hour or ages ago

My heart and mind do not know

Earlier poems:

The Rains

Another Day, Same Place

Where were you?

  1. Dear Gautam,

    What a soft and sensitive side you have.This soft side has led you to write poetry.

    This soft side is dangerous.First your face had no goatee and you looked like Tusshar Kapoor.

    Now you have a goatee as seen on Facebook and you look like Bhiku Matre from Satya.

    Is this what your soft side has achieved?

    Sometimes even I have a soft side which leads me to write poetry.

    Read my poem ‘Because Of Kasab’

    Damn that Goatee,it scares me!
