What to Settle For

It is a dilemma- whether to remain sleepless in a busy world Or, be drowned in a celestial sleep and disconnect from time’s torment The kind of desperation cannot be fathomed I cannot be in a conflicting duality; a reality split by erroneous calculations Abandon the soul and venture out to a wild chase of inferior dreams Contribute to the conspiracies woven around to prove … Continue reading What to Settle For

Dispel the Darkness

Lights have been long gone Glitches of time or modernity struck by lightning Complete darkness; an evening flinches Used to flashiness and bytes of noisy media Candles that have been forgotten Kept away in a dark corner- just a fancy buying Now, it becomes essential To rush towards that nondescript place Nervous fingers tackle the forgotten items Once lit, they seem magical; medieval too It … Continue reading Dispel the Darkness

Different Expectations

Untrammelled journeys lead to surprising destinations A whispering of silence reveal many secrets Time leaves a soul alone; almost forgotten by a busy world Feels unfamiliar after a lengthy disconnect Past sacrifices itself in the present tranquillity Future dreams appear with cryptic messages Nothing startling after freeing the soul from obstinate time Unburdening opinions of mistaken identities A persistent battle of perceptions and avaricious deals … Continue reading Different Expectations

Down That Difficult Path

The thoughts that are led across a difficult path Waiting for darkness to descend, for lights expose Those deeds of rapscallions to spin a sinister deal Wrapped in a suspiciously garish disguise of lies Handed down to propagate a dishonourable theory A curse that has sunk deeper and flows effortlessly Dragged along difficulties in rushed fascination A heart leaps out of reasons- a known betrayal … Continue reading Down That Difficult Path

Some Clarity

Some days appear cleaner- washed away by the overnight rain All the debris and worries; human misapprehensions and mistrusts Disappear, as the rains dream of a new beginning It may be gloomier and quieter, but how peaceful in stillness A difficult night washed by Providential rains looks like a child praying Even for a brief moment, the vagaries of humanity feels distant Now the innocent … Continue reading Some Clarity

Muted, But Heard Everywhere

A silence of shame, on being confronted by the truth Guilt measured in a muted breath Murmurs give away a disarrayed narrative So many words have been stolen and placed erroneously To structure definitions conveniently Allaying failures with lies- diagnosing some fatal maladies Of which there are no remedies, but more woes In silence, there is complicity too Most of what life could have gathered … Continue reading Muted, But Heard Everywhere

The Identity Struggles

I don’t know if anything lengthy is relevant anymore. The paucity of time, lack of interest, and some inevitable changes have shifted the consciousness. Our concept of time has become even more vulnerable. Some changes are natural, while the majority of them are thrust upon us. Few think and educate them on how to think! The thinking culture then spreads like a powerful ripple and … Continue reading The Identity Struggles

Surviving

Ordinary words hastily weave a blanket Invisible becomes those feelings of an eloquent soul It may have had marvellous dreams How inconspicuously they survive among many Failing to fill that precious pen with noble ink Tides of change wipe off the classical concepts There are copious comments about simplicity Oblivious of a tremendous sacrifice The magnificence of simplicity is misread Sudden euphoria and impulsiveness wane … Continue reading Surviving

Another Day

Everything comes to a grinding halt A systematic pattern that runs it all Fall, through the laboured corridors Complicated intersections of society Different roles with matching thoughts Given an identity to live up to them Mornings greet with new tricks Sets the pace of a day, still unnamed Hoping, that today will be different Not of inconvenienced profits and rush The mirror poses a grave … Continue reading Another Day
