To Be Really Awake

Lingering doubt about the time this soul really awakens Is it the morning that I can look at leisurely At a time when a world outside is riddled with unreasonable doubts It takes time and patience to recognize my presence After a hiatus, ensconced in  a comfortable darkness I think of escaping the suffering emanating from the chaos Searching for a nothingness, comforting emotions, and … Continue reading To Be Really Awake

A Cautionary Tale

Rare chants of sanity amongst the qualms of humanity Widening fault lines; a deeper malaise that worries life Insensitive choices, tired consciousness, the antagonism Patterns of intolerance etched clearly through the ages Today, the past is dissected and interpreted in vicious words Lifting up the burden on fragile shoulders The frail constitution can barely withstand the stress Yet, stressing on the unsettling ideologies- a disaster … Continue reading A Cautionary Tale

Other Time

Consulting a watch interrupted by an evil time Once upon a time, the world resonated with it On arrival of darkness or light, it worked fine Shadows mesmerised by the sound of used time Oblivious of another reality that lurks around Some unknown age inches toward the world Transformation of an invisible reality happens On the deliberate chronology of eternal dreams Is it another world, … Continue reading Other Time

Brief, But True Moments

Ignoring The Relevance

Do we ignore life so much that the truth in writings feels uninteresting? Sometimes a piece of writing has to be hollowed out and filled with mundanity to appeal to the taste- as acquired over a period of time. It could be that life feels so burdened with everyday repetitiveness. Yes, mostly the routine, the lifecycle of thought, and the remnants of consequences stay longer … Continue reading Ignoring The Relevance

The Contradictions

While I decide to go the other way Something pulls me, interrupts my decision There I wish to live and find a purpose Here, I have comprehended the futility Whether I am being pushed or pulled, I know not On who is behind the contradictions Above restlessness, it is a continuous struggle Difficult distancing myself from both realities While I sit here exasperated and tired … Continue reading The Contradictions

Unreliable Words

The words are not safe anymore Looks fragile; the ink dries hurriedly Smudged, and sometimes crumbly Tossed away casually towards edges Pages reveal the unfeeling lines Even before time can consume feelings Stories are forgotten- vulnerable Inability to narrate the feelings Could not have emerged naturally From struggles of daily confabulations Comparisons and ersatz versions Of many cultural upheavals The pages will not be cleaner … Continue reading Unreliable Words
