Rejecting Creativity

It is incredible, and in fact, magical that creativity is not disheartened by rejections so easily. The true essence of creativity finds its way, despite the vanishing channels. One has to channelise the inner resilience and creative passion to rise above temporary misunderstandings (it may not be entirely correct to assume that creativity will communicate with the right audience) and skillfully find the course it … Continue reading Rejecting Creativity

The Intense Light

Looking intensely at the sage light of eternity It’s not the poet’s eyes that runs the course today Clearly, the spirit did not enter unwillingly The dense savageness looks fatigued and defeated It is not about recalling the dreams during sleep Memories fade from the deepest layers of the mind Sometimes it feels like an unintentional push From the valley of false tranquillity towards a … Continue reading The Intense Light

The Purpose of Purposelessness

People rarely find their real voice when it really matters! The protests of the moment are of retrospective thoughts and judgements thereafter. Complicit or not, the muddled times and heady ideas seem to be more alluring; sometimes, the vacuous feeling of being left behind is also a stimulating factor. Time is perceived to be a nemesis, the obnoxious judge, and it becomes essential to join … Continue reading The Purpose of Purposelessness

As They Cave In

Thoughts cave in; it’s futile to pull them back With taut muscles and wrecked brains Fragments of disillusioned emotions also surrender Once, only a flicker of a path was available Now the lights are dull; the temper of existence, tense The hope of crawling towards freedom with all might Something is not right in the fight for control Everything falls apart; they do and permeates … Continue reading As They Cave In

The Messages

The messages disguised as sympathisers turn brigands Prey on the mind; every possible thought thereafter is poisoned Some of them are welcomed consciously, others follow stealthily There’s that age when life seems to be a joke The perception of cages and unbridled freedom burn hungrily When an entire world seems to be an exaggerated distortion Vulnerable times fall for the high-spirited demands of life’s extortion … Continue reading The Messages

The Birds

The birds seem to have gathered innocuously One called the other, then in unison, then everyone responded They know how to create a rhythm Their wings have brought them here for a purpose Winds must have written some messages on them As scripts, they reveal the messages Their stare, sometimes unnerving They may be speculating over my curious expressions Probably, peering through my subliminal thoughts … Continue reading The Birds

Sceptical Morning and Detours

Some mornings are not morning enough! The dichotomy, whether it is in the thoughts or in the perception, splits the character of a morning into two conflicting characters. The characteristic of a man, who has not dreamt well and had ogres visiting them with odd signs, can become tipsy with the potent chaos. Staring at the morning for more than its promised stay will drag … Continue reading Sceptical Morning and Detours

Judgement is Inevitable

The judgements can be alienated, ostracised, and inhumed They pierce the conscience- the good, bad, and ugly Traces everywhere; the naked eyes cannot see, but the heart feels Judgements become a constant phantasm Unnecessary? Ok, let’s sift through them; the human ones can be inhumane What about the truth that is denied a hearing? Circumstances become curiously shaped cauldrons- but the magic is gone Saying … Continue reading Judgement is Inevitable
