A secret rendezvous…!!!

A secret rendezvous…!!!

 Doled out is my heart by peoples Impetuousness, needs to be integrated, glued with Love

Aristophane says, once man & woman were one, God split them in half

Not to fight or blame one another but to find eachother again in natural Love

Avant grade love can only solve this anachronic riddle

Sublimity in your ambivalence words filled with satirism is perniciously haunting

Huckster am I not? Offering my life for your’s

Raging, facetiously are your talks covering timidity beneath

Eros:the God of Love have sent you to me for eternal love or it’s just an serendipity

Eloquence in your rejection what makes me penchant to explore your dialect

Jest in my inverterate disparage makes you defiantly rhetoric

Wantonly are we not spending our precious lives in bourgeoisie virtue

Aporetic is my status, know no what to do? How to make you understand my poignant Love

Lamenting about the past agony, let’s not huckster it to posterity, otherwise

Agathon may come down from heaven to weave tapestry of our tragedy

Smitten by your grand ingress is like a fortune in my life

Misanthropist was I, felt the oeuvre of Shakesphere

Injustice bestowed to me seems to be a blessing in disguise

Tantaliser must be the Eros in connotative gadfly mood now,

Hush should be my stoutly earnest

Anecodotist is the Zeus in his best have rhetorically decorated our lives forever.

A brief Preface:

It happened to me one day while I was passing by Majestic’s, footpath my eye fell on this one particular book “The Dialogues of Plato”, one of the Bantam Classics. I had heard story of Socrates in my school days, which had an impact on me which made me think for a very long period ‘why the hell did he choose to die?,  While he had a fair chance to accept to go under exile and he could have continued his teachings there?’. To me Socrates seem to be a Fool not a Philosopher. I always wanted to explore this.

 Early exposure to philosophy has attracted me to study different dialects about the subject. Whenever I find an opportunity with chandrashekar uncle, to ignite a conversation about theater & dramas ‘Greek Tragedies’ are one of his favorite topics. This made me more curious about Greek philosophy and its contribution to the world.

4 times prior to this I tried reading “The Dialogues of Plato” but could not because I was not able to follow its lyrically ornamented difficult words. It was painful to look for meanings every time in that fat Oxford Dictionary. Thanks to my iphone and ‘World web’ app making it possible to read and understand it now. I was so engrossed with those beautifully constructed and ornamented conversations. It kept me aloof from the world and took me to that era of Greek where it was enacted in front of my eyes. I was so thrilled in the literati, that it inspired me to write this piece using that rhetoric language.
