Sudden Retreat

Sullen retreat from the celebrations

A spectre of impending reality

Dreamers are aware

Of sudden changes in feelings

Drunken revelry over widening chasms

It feels so mundane to remain quiet

Away from crowded opinions

Shattered languages

Half-hearted communications

A kind of distress everywhere

Irregular sighs and complaints

Lonely contemplations are rare

Hounded by intemperate thoughts

Whirlwind adventures

Excesses of impulsive decisions

~Amitav
