After the Shadows

The world blinks, it’s momentary, even evades our consciousness

Shadows slink and move towards an oblivious horizon

Skipping a beat, the heart beckons the mind, a timid response from an hyperbolic instance

Without realizing the shift in instincts from the overburdened reality

Nothing is realistic, noting down some variety of deviance

Rising degrees of conflicts, a perpetual delusion off the hazy landscape

Feels unreal, but how they have made us believe in the unrealistic truth

Blushes of embarrassed days soon turns into pallid moments, for us to carry on, follow the shadows
