If Pages Could Scribble Stories



how easy it would be
if pages could scribble stories
on pristine parchments
without humane interference

but
can pages emulate tears
and smiles and sorrows
love and the art
that men so expertly devise

fictions we read
are nothing but the writer's tryst
with reality
adapted to suit the curvatures
of our word thirsty souls


This Poem is shared with The Mag.
