Platonic lines


A rough wall
and a harder core.

It ain’t no simple
Still, lots to question

Do you let them in,
How far?.
Do you shed your inhibitions,
How much?.
Do you need to censor yourself,
What for?.

Skeptical “me“.

When it comes to friendship
The question always eludes
Where to draw the line.

The “line”.


The topic over at skittles today is “line” for heads or tails. I generally don’t do poetry for HoT, but todays kind of an exception, could not think anything else but this for the topic. As usual I have limited my expression to 55 words.

  1. Does Platonice line need the question ‘where to draw”?
    So many questions………Today my mind is taking me to minus only! May be my mind is becoming pessimistic. Let my mind wait for some time to ruminate them later!
    Thanks for such a post, I really want to think on this!

    Bless You Always! ~Namaste~

    Neilina..well thats the dilemma..would you share everything with your friend, male or female.. I think we do choose to draw the line..and where is a question 🙂


  2. Wow! That was a great way to interpret the topic. Drawing the line is something I need to practice.

    Thanks Forgetfulone..its something which we need to practice..but then where to draw the line will be my eternal dilemma 🙂

  3. lighten up,, open up,,, and just be…. it seems so hard to breathe inside that shell….

    It seems hard..but sometimes we are also so comfortable in there that we do not want to risk getting out

  4. Yeah unknowingly we do draw lines!
    Yeah I will share ‘everything’ with my friend, if I able to find one! Here the problem doesn’t arise because of the line drawn by us but line drawn by them also. Line drawn by them sometimes doesn’t allow us to cross the limit.

    Neilina…somehow did not get what you mean

  5. Very nice.. there is a thin line, but where is the line??! I love the way you take these topics on a different tangent each time!

    Thanks preethi..I am very happy to see you could make out that tangencys 🙂

  6. That is a very interesting take on the theme. I like to read poetry, or at least some, but I am not good at it at all. Drawing the line is something I have learned as I grow older, unfortunately it is a skill we needed often when we are younger.

    Thanks Grace
