The joke's on me...

The joke's on me...

A Poem by Sanjh
"

A thought from the past.

"

They are laughing,
Fussing in other's ear.
Full of life,
But they are not clear...

All eyes on me,
I'm trying to be sincere.
Why are they laughing?
It's still unclear...

 

I can hear their voice,
Maybe they are telling some joke.
I've a bad feeling,
and I want them to revoke...
Anywhere I go,
I can hear them stroke.
I'm sensing fear,
But all I see is smoke...

 

Then suddenly I realised,
It's neither him nor she.
It's my ugly past,
That's laughing at me...
Sharp as hell,
Stinging like a bee.
My past is laughing,
And the joke's on me...

This composition is very well written. It totally highlights the confusion in the victim's mind in the beginning, the mocking gaze of his fellow acquaintances, and in the end the final realisation.
I like this part the most: " My past is laughing,
And the joke's on me..." and also
"I'm sensing fear,
But all I see is smoke.."
Amazing job! Keep writing.

This is a poam About people's past and what had happened is what made them sad. This poam is saying that someone had a past event that is haunting them and they can't let it go. Great poam.

It's a very clever to piece, pretty creative with the past. The has a way of trying to catch up to those who try to out ran it. But when it catches up to them, it hits them like a ton of bricks. Nicely penned poem.

Kaze~

The past is something that always tries to come back and bring us down. As we go through life we learn from our past mistakes which makes our future brighter.

Nice jumble of words there!! Best thing about it is that it actually stays in sync with the central thought and doesn't drift around. Nice rhyme here...good work!
