Contrasting Reality

Curtains lifeless, the bed indifferent and less caring to the supine body

Eyes startled, and maybe a little lost too, survey the sharp corners of the room

Contrasts bring out the disproportionateness of a life that is yet to come out of a reverie

At times like this, the senses are half-awakened, but the mind is quite frantic

Searching for that meaning beyond the discrepancies of an unequal life

It is difficult to assemble all the doubts of the myriad senses that are distant

Enticed into this dilemma about the reality of a room and world outside

Probably, the unknown intruders sedate the senses before manipulating
