The Unseen Downfall

Simple emotions appear to be bland under the dispirited sky

When the weather is influenced by the multitude of sighs

Like menacing clouds blanketing the earlier euphoria of life

Curtailing time slyly from the daily allowance; stealing dreams too

Unaware, until they are long gone and a sense of despair settle down

Like a heavy bowl displacing water, but unwilling to drown

Stirring restlessness audaciously affects the temper of daily thoughts

Fighting off the clouds of melancholy like a struggling warrior

With inadequate defense from the unseen forces, time collapses

~Amitav
