The Jack of cards and the Unseen Lady....


There are 2 things i dont know........

There's this card game called 29....i really
hated this game...i saw my friends play it
24X7.. but i really sucked...then addiction took
me over...i observed....n saw...n
understood....it was like this unspoken language
that cud be only comprehended by the masters of
the card game....well,the game went like
this....there was this JACK which had 3
points...the card no 9,2 points...while the ace
n 10 had a solo point each....with the ace hvin
the upper hand....now this is a team game...u
call the points....n if u fail to acheive those
points in the course of the game...ur team
loses..or else u guys win...n there r lotsa
other rules too....so comin back,i really HATED
this game in the beginning...but sumtime back i
heard a chinese proverb saying' if u cant beat
then,join them'....n thts exactly wht happend to
me....before i even came to know of it,i started
playin the game....played it over vodka...over
rum...over a couple of joints...over fags....n
definitely over my roommate's coffee....played
the game for weeks....n still i
sucked...sumtimes i even gave up the thought of
playing it...but then i nevr really let it go... Then i looked at the other side..n
realized,well,this is who i am...the game's
teachin me a lot....i understood human
psychologies....understood who cheated to win,n
who did not..the more observant ones..the
obstinate ones...and definitely the one who
thought himself to be the Jack of all trades.... Jack is a person whom we need in
life...he's the person whom people depend on...
he's not the master but behaves like one...able
to control evrything around him....they made a
nursery rhyme on him....they 'synonymed' his
name to a thing done by males...they made him a
psychopath killer....they named their children
after him....they put him on a flag n they loved
him when he sang...he was true to all socities
never really unfazed by what he did...he's
immortal n evergreen....he's what ive always
wanted to be....he's my alter ego...my
friend,philosopher and guide...but then...its
just tht 3 points which make him up......

There's this girl i hvnt met....she's as dark minded as i am....but then she's wht life is...she's what we all are...we do talk often a lot...a real fun girl to talk too...talks about things i normally wouldnt expect from a girl...after about a year,i have failed in my attempts to understand her....

About the card game,you came out with a positive conclusion.."Jack"..which makes me wonder if being Jack is all that matters. You see people exceling in various fields having that "extra" in them yet..he's not Jack..Jack who's everywhere, involved in everything around him..

And with regards to the unseen lady,mystery always intrigues people and there is always something intriguing in each one of us which someone out there finds intriguing!!
Glad you found someone intriguing!!

@anonymous...well...u cd hv penned down ur name,so tht i mite hv knwn who i was really addressing too....

well...as u see...its not that being "jack" is all that matters... i just happen to like this guy called jack...i guess,we all do hv alter ego's in some form or the other...for me,he's named jack.....proabably for many others too...so wht im tryin to say is tht ...tom,jack,dennis,mya,jan... whoevr we have inside of us...is just who we want to be....in reality or in our subconcious mind.....

and about the mystery lady...well,it is so tht i was akd by this lady to rite something about her in my blog...n hence i did........hope she finds it good...

i havent ever played 29. but i wudnt have stuck on as much as you...i give up far too quicky. You'll get it someday, and you'll be glad you stuck on.
I'm glad you are not Jack. Its tough being Jack and having all those expectations to live upto.
As for the unseen lady, i sure hope she understands how great it feels to be mentioned in someone else's writing.

intense..Liked this post the most. Grass does these things to you baby, it regales you in ways you cannot comprehend and then imbibes you with a plethora of thoughts that seem to make sense all so suddenly. You, We, realise. Isn't that one of the ulterior motives in life?

archetype said...

Thanks for dropping by. And yes. It's the hard truth. I'm going through a patch I can hardly describe. We're all light headed when together. It's the loneliness that intrudes your mind and makes you think about reality.

Well debanuj ur fantasy for the jack reminds me of these lines....

There was a ragged band that followed in our footsteps
Running before time took our dreams away
Leaving the myriad small creatures trying to tie us to the ground
To a life consumed by slow decay


And ur fantasy about the dark minded lady feels like.....

Emily tries but misunderstands, ah ooh
She often inclined to borrow somebody's dreams till tomorrow
There is no other day
Let's try it another way
You'll lose your mind and play
Free games for may
See Emily play
