autobiography of a pen..

i am a pen.red and shiny i am, but i have always written in blue..royally. she used to fondle me, kiss me, take me on her sojourns, through people, places and events...i have travelled so much...through pages and pages of her writing...her lucky pen she used to call me...

i remember her crying when she put me down accidentally one day, and dented my nib...(i still have a dented nib..and she reckons i write better that way..)and i so wanted to console her,write 'am OK. really!' on the white sheet of paper she had before her. but alas i couldn't. coz even though they call us mightier than the sword,we don't have a stand on our own. we cant stand up. nor can we express what we feel. we can write what our owners feel, what they want us to...nothing else...

i enjoyed running over pages, telling about all that she felt. ..made me cry sometimes,reading what she wrote. that's when i bled...and she went berserk at that coz bleed is what good pens are not supposed to do...if only she understood why i bled

i loved being with her. lucky pen she used to call me...and proud i was of that status...

i am on the wait now...for her to pick me up...and give me some exercise. i miss reading into her mind. i miss being the first person to know what she felt. i miss her. she never comes to me these days..i see her fingers flying over black and white keys, her eyes fixed on a flickering white screen...they are her friends now..and i am neglected. they print what she says...but they will never smell her hand, nor see her beautiful writing...they will never bleed for her...nor will they think for her...

i stay in her pen stand...waiting to taken in her arms again...drink in ink once more and spill it all out for her...but i guess i wait in vain...

pen!

hmm i damned technology for a long while. i still do in a way, but resisting the blogs and emails (as opposed to diaries and letters) is beyond me. (Reminds one of how Gandhi damned the trains etc.)

Its such a shame though, isnt it?
well, atleast the trees get a break (from this 'minimal' usage of paper) :D

I love the way you've described the pen...I love that it's red and shiny. That part about the pen never being able to follow its own will..wow! Never thought of it that way.
P.S...thanks for your comment too...:)

@thanks a lot dears for ur comments...and yes i do feel am ignoring my pen a lot these days thanks to internet...

harish said...

right vrinda....pen was a lot more happier than the keyboard...and absolutely "awesome romanticism" as rishi so aptly said...but then the irony is that it required a keyboard to pen about the pen..it required the keystrokes to tell the tragedy...a bit cruel maybe :-)

vrinda said...

@harishettan
i am aware of the irony..it did not escape me when i was keyin this down...
