The Trail

What prompts one to find the trail of sadnesses Until the day their imprints appear on the heart Upon daily treading, the overgrown grasses perish The nakedness of a forlorn path feels violated Learning from the entrapped patterns day and night Losing sight of any other route amongst the clamour The intoxicating drinks of this world taste annoying A sommelier’s advice sounds jarring at that … Continue reading The Trail

Away from the Crowd

What’s the feeling of walking away from the crowd? Withdrawing all of the identity that had been dispersed  It was difficult identifying them after unnatural transformation Walking into the crowd was never a decision It happens in the rush of life; urged to leave the freedom of solitude You take all of you, remember, the duality of the opposing voice Someone within had been constantly … Continue reading Away from the Crowd

Impassive

Is it not foolish to miss the grimace on everything that has been around? A bitter haziness from the frosty breaths of sinister gatherings makes the heart jittery Whoever would have thought of the disguised hands to go scot-free after the misdeeds Silly communications around debauched companies where senses are mortgaged Look up, look away, look pervertedly; all of them give away the intentions Regrets … Continue reading Impassive

Rectifying the Social Discourse

While a lot of people are trying to interpret the social discourse, it is happening in a haphazard manner. The distortion of language limits the scope of communication, as we still believe it is a mere exchange of words. The intention to listen is lacking most of the time; acting as the ‘black hole’ where words are absorbed, without leaving a trace, or transformed beyond … Continue reading Rectifying the Social Discourse

The Voyage

World in your eyes, a universe resides in the soul The Voyage across places of wonder mapped in celestial maps Turmoil from apprehensions follow; that’s a test of resilience How far a voyager will go navigating across turbulent times It’s tyrannical to anchor the free-spirited desires early in life Where every sparkling dream is chastised and doomed Beasts appear in fairy tales and folklores of … Continue reading The Voyage

Literature and Writing

Literature is not supposed to be devoured. To really appreciate the essence, one has to hold a book with care to listen to an unopened book; it’s the silent appreciation of the sentiment it radiates is the beginning of a long relationship with literature, a culture, characters, and a world of imaginations. Creativity just does not spill over in haste, it flows over eagerly, only … Continue reading Literature and Writing

W. B. Yeats, 1865 – 1939

William Butler Yeats Turning and turning in the widening gyre The falcon cannot hear the falconer; Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere The ceremony of innocence is drowned; The best lack all conviction, while the worst Are full of passionate intensity. Surely some revelation is at hand; Surely the Second … Continue reading W. B. Yeats, 1865 – 1939

Upheaval

When contradictions are buried for eons, there will be a time when upheavals emerge from the mighty displacements Shifts and turmoils create abysses; mysteries fossilised give a glimpse of rare outrage that occurred in times ancient Excavations of greed, compulsive and hedonistic pleasures ferociously try to break the uncomfortable truths It’s a duel of time now and them; unpredictable consequences and rush to retrieve the … Continue reading Upheaval
