#13 Ignorance - ain't a bliss

Hatred is accepted with a bow,
But not the way thou overlook,

Of all the things that mean to thou,
Mine exsistance ain't worth a mention,

Useless, unworthy and trashed
Avoided, ignored and smashed,

I die, I die, I die every moment,
Knowing I ain't needed anymore,

I behold, keep intact, still a hope,
One day will rise, when thou,

Might notice my absence,
Might need me the way I do,

I'll wait, I'll wait,
As long as I can behold,

Despise, dislike even make me cry,
But never ignore till I die...

Hey, Hi
You have portrayed a beautiful thought here...And the style of writing is quite different too...
What takes away the charm from it is the repetition...other than that, only one flaw i would say, but like your previous post, not so important...many would fail to notice it too...
good read..beautiful read i would say...

Ignorance is bliss but being ignored isn't. May be, right? :)

Hope you had a good holiday!


And somtimes, it is like in this song:

I don't wanna know it's over
So save your goodbye kiss
I don't wanna know it's over
Cause ignorance is bliss
I can hardly see
What's in front of me
Cause the vodka's running on empty
I can't stay sober
If it's over
(I don't wanna know)

Blasphemous Aesthete


Hatred no doubt is
a bitter pill to swallow...
Indifference is a bottomless pit
where darkness is might
and no holds to clutch in sight.

True words were never written
than what thou has penned...


Or maybe it's time to move on???


hey.. first of all lovely words that starts with your blog intro. Seems M.L.K is your favorite one. Keep it up. !


Ignorance has never yielded anything


You shouldn't wait if someone keeps ignoring.


"Do not worry about the people in your past,there is a reason why they did not make it to your future"...isn't this easier said than living with the feeling of being ignored...but I believe the worst of all is ignoring yourself:)...it is all a matter of time...God has given everybody his/her share of pie:)


I hope the person realizes the worth soon.
Beautifully written.

Agreed to this poem quite well...Ignorance ain't a bliss all the time...it's better to move on rather than wait the endless wait....

And I guess this is my last comment from this account as I'm deleting my account...2-3 times plagiarism in a row and now I'm scared of publishing my work on my blog..hence deleting it...

Keep Writing,


Deeps,its BEAUTIFUL...and heart -wrenching too...
keep 'em coming girl..


I loved the subtle tweaking of the title, that one doesn't truly understand until the last line is read. Cleverly done.

I loved the composition of the first line, very eloquent. The manner we grant even hate a certain amount of propriety that isn't granted to manners in ignoring a person, thereby making it all the more demeaning. Very acute insight.

I loved how you group, useless, unworthy both inward feelings, personal and end them with trashed, something done to the person. Then in the second verse you use avoid and ignore, those things done to the person, and end with smashed, that resultant feeling found within the person. This grouping made me focus on your construction and thereby elevated above a mere list of sentiments. Skillfully done.

I loved the rhythm of I die, I die, I die, like days, moments passing by, a life being diminished and quietly lost. Very poetic.

I loved that fact you use behold, to see something, in terms of her hope. As long as she can perceive it, despite others around her not being able to do so, she will keep it lit. It could be seen as sad, that she holds on to delusions, but then again it can be seen as courageous, holding on when most would have let go. Truly it is worse when hope gains less.

I loved the echo of I'll wait, that resilient, impulsive nature that fights on despite that thud of heartache found within her life affirming heartbeat. Finely done.

Wonderful composition, insightful and well thought out. With love, Sabah
