English Poetry

One may be taken aback

while people interject words

such as “I swear”, “to be frank”

“really speaking”, “to be honest” and other assurances

without meaning them , you and I know.


They attach this sort of prefix

or suffix only to impress

the listener with a bit of charm to fix

their exhuberant identities to disperse

the slightest doubts about the credibilities.


Any one may happen

to be subjected to such tantrums

occasionally, though one dares not to condemn

purposely, their silly vows

uprooting true beliefs and ideals.

    really speaking, to be frank,
    This medhini’s poetry bank.
    come & gain , as you can,
    “interest” of charm, money of fame.

    Congrats !!!

  2. U.M.Sahai says:

    Good one, Medhini.

  3. Vishvnand says:

    I swear, to be frank & really speaking as also to be honest with you, it is indeed a very nice & polite take by you on these very & such superfluous phrases always added for no blessed reason but to confuse and more so when the substance in what one wants to covey is often either nothing and/or superfluous too. The idea for writing on the subject as also the way it has been conveyed is commendable. Liked very much.

    Honestly Medhini, what a charmer! “To tell you the truth” you have presented a nice composition on interesting mannerism.
