-Not as easy as you think!
For those of us who write may be, by now, expression and the art of expressing is not something we very closely reflect on. ( or some of you, like me have thought about it?)
This time via me and myself I stepped onto something, which I’m glad, I did.
You know as much as this life of ours is intriguing and mysterious, so are the people whom we come across in our lives. Lets leave aside those whom we just know on a single basis (like through mails/ chats/ as bloggers) for in reality a lot gets revealed! People are very mysterious beings, and this for me is as inviting as it is repulsive.
And here I come upon people, mostly who don’t talk much in their life! Reserved people are very intelligent! Yes, that’s what I feel. You may think that they don’t express much and don’t even talk, but they have ideas bursting in their minds!
NO, I’m not trying to picture them darkly, but I feel that’s true. Gibran’s words as always speak beautifully:
“You talk when you cease to be at peace with your thoughts”.
I just feel, at the same time, and think, if people who express and express decently well, whether in spoken or in written words, ever feel lack of expression coming at their end?
In simpler words, do they miss people around them not expressing? Not sharing with them what they think about them or even feel?
As much as this world is filled with writers, it is also filled with readers. So in a way we can perhaps talk about a balance. Yes writers also read. And those who read if they write? Not true always.
But where do the expressions go when they are not shared? When they are not told?
Yes, there are art forms other than writing like singing, painting, dancing. But it only takes a true appreciator of that art form to acknowledge that, so to understand that language one needs to know that language too!
How does silence works in their life?
Sure, love can understand through silence as well, but you don’t actually love everyone that way, that they can interpret your silence?
I’ll end with these words…….
Now that I know you won’t say,
Now that I know you’ll keep it,
In your keepsake,
I’ll create a cocoon of my own,
Where all my thoughts shall reside…….
