Goblet of Glass

Pre-Script : YES, you are right IF you think this is dedicated to you :)

I have this goblet of glass,
Of it falling, I'm scared. 
Day in and out, I'm worried, 
that this will drop
and break into a hundred pieces.

I have this goblet of glass.
Crystal and clear.
Untainted. Of it I'm worried
That I will spoil it all
for now and forever.

I have this goblet of glass
filled with fluid ruby, precious
Nectar of life. I'm worried
That this will spill
all over my life and his.

I have this goblet of glass.
And it is mine, all mine.
Let it break, I wont.
That this will fall
Only when I drop down.

I have this goblet of glass
Filled with precious ruby of mine
Tainted but gave it all I got.
No more scared I'm.
Fear replaced by hope and love.

P.s:  I have to tell you the history or rather the story of the picture above. This picture if of a $1000 ice cream available at a place called Serendipity. It has 23 karat gold all over it. And yes, I hate frivolous spending but this is my dream. I want to have it !! SOON!! Ok, my rant is now over. 


  1. lol awesome. nectar of life. i liked that

    read By the river piedra I sat down and wept?

    how the narrator makes her lover to break the glass... break the ego! fall in love? or acknowledge your falling!

    I would have done the same if it was worth of 5 cents!

    no, i like local icecream ;)

    (grapes are sour?) hehe

  2. You know the people who have the describe life as before they had it and after it!!

    I tried to symbolise the glass as the heart! His heart! This is one of my poems I'm most nervous about!

  3. Nervous!!!

    Anyways ... ;)


    Hope your dream come true ... soon!

    I always admire your poetry ... the sense of it ... I find similarity between your and Priyanka's writing ... I dont know, may be wrong!

    Cheers ... keep on writing :)

    I read that novel, as I told you before ... the similarity is striking here ... the Goblet, the glass, the pieces - the ego, the love, the impression and the echo!

    Thanks for making me remember the time when I was reading the book ... there was so much of changes in my life that time ... I would never go back to that stage again!

  5. WHAT? 1000 $ ice cream ?:O
    Paris hilton edition ? lol ..:P

    Life is a goblet of glasses,
    Harry potter with his jaadu,
    Life is a goblet of glasses,
    Aila re ladki mast mast tu aila re

    Fear replaced by hope and love.
