Not Amusing

Amusements are not amusing anymore Slightest hope to escape the revelry thwarted By the unknown hands that surround like apparitions Outlandish illusions form a kind of reality Beliefs based on their premises The rock-hard pillows, heavy mind, interrupted sleep Dreams and their fragments- only a few scattered Abandoned here and there and trampled Unapologetic feet desecrate the coveted territories Dug up, the terrible times, regenerate … Continue reading Not Amusing

Uneven Circumference

The uneven circumference of a roughly carved crucible What it holds is not much of a concern It barely balances itself; more spills over, creating a disorder Of spilt chances, thoughts, feelings, and love The small craters around the body hold some evidence Collected dust, mistrust, life’s contrast and pastiches Fingerprints coalesced to form some surreal patterns Relationships of convenience, rather than a choice Now, … Continue reading Uneven Circumference

How Long? Enough to Think

How long can you slouch over the morning and try to repress the lights Sitting erect may become an arduous task due to the immense burden Of the unseen worries, the imagined times of turmoil, and scant hope Dreams that were seeded never had enough opportunity to germinate Feels, like the flickering horizon, is trying to communicate frantically There’s never enough room for the contradictory … Continue reading How Long?

The day contorts due to uncomfortable questions Propositions of scandalous desires Let it all settle down; they will sink deeper and taint Still, this stillness will rescue the advance of such … Continue reading As The Curtains Come Down

Realisation of Time

Daguerreotype realities, set aside by the ages and fervent time Suddenly fall off the stack of feelings that was forgotten under covers of dust Time slips in again as a glitch in the present moment Uncanny reminders spoken by the staring eyes Notice the background too for the presence of any societal motifs Plain truths are rarely comprehended- until these sudden awakening  Frail memories never … Continue reading Realisation of Time

From Evening to Dawn

Crimson worries, rhythmical silence notes down secretly The calligraphic notes brushed finely by the excellent winds Language divine, pacify them- the heart feels assured for now Dusk covers everything like the loving concern of a mother Says, “sit here as long as you wish, but settle the worries” Tonight, before the long walk back home, feel confident Tired legs must walk towards the bed with … Continue reading From Evening to Dawn
