Abstract Emotions




When I go to bed, I may not be tired
When I wake up, I may not feel rested
When I take a break, I may not be rejuvenated
When I feel tired, I may not feel wasted

When I am smiling, I maybe smirking
When I cry, I may not be sad
When I am angry, I may be de-stressing
When I am happy, it may not be out of pleasure

When I am thinking, I may be wandering
When I am talking, I may not make sense
When I am quiet, I maybe more dynamic
When I am excited, I may be serene, inside

When I am romantic, I may worry over a plumber
When I am practical, I may plan a holiday
When I show my true self, I maybe enacting
When I am acting, I may be real

When I am searching, maybe I look for none
When I find you, I may look some more
When no one cares, maybe I am ‘no one’
When care is all I get, I may prefer being alone

When I am confused, maybe I am clearer
When I am clear, maybe I am lost: a little
When I am confident, maybe I am pretending
When I am nervous, I maybe at my best

When I am playing games, maybe I am serious
When I am critical, my sense of humor may show
When I am afraid, maybe I am at my brave-best
When I am weak, maybe I am strong

When I am teasing, I may not be flirting
When I indulge, maybe it is out of habit
When I say, I love you; I may not always mean it
When my heart breaks, maybe I plan it.

    3. Okay, let me guess, your name is Amit Agarwal :)
      Sorry, AmitA is out of respect. A is short form
      of your title. I did not want to address you just
      by your first name.

      But from now on, it is Amit :)

  9. firt "Aha" stuck when i reached
    --When I show my true self, I maybe enacting
    When I am acting, I may be real --

    the the second;
    --When I say, I love you; I may not always mean it
    When my heart breaks, maybe I plan it.--

    lovely lovely lovely....

    and when i reread it I thought how would it sound if i put a "O la la" at every line and sing this :)

  21. Reality is very confusing. And one can't predict the mind of the other person. Yes, one who understands the emotions of other person is a true friend!
