For Better Times

The barrenness of darkness due to lack of decent metaphors Shadows feel vulnerable too in the midst of the inelegant drama Conceiving beauty from melancholy is the work of masterpiece Words like little finely cut jewels- intricately chiseled to shape the facets The world will reflect on the sheer beauty and resilience of a poet Surviving the adversity with dignity; creativity, a gift to mankind … Continue reading For Better Times

Night’s Stillness

Stay still, for the loopholes are the nooses waiting to trap the careless one The world may be fit for the slowness of change Transformations that emerge in tranquil amidst the slowly waning day A moonless night’s mysterious glow echoes the sentiments of a forgotten epoch Walk closer to destiny, the paths that are arranged for the lonely feet  That does not lead to the … Continue reading Night’s Stillness

Fate of Emotions

Predatory words took away the best emotions  During some unfanciful moments that allowed them in The sanctified world of a soul’s reverie Malicious eyes already put them in a vile hypnotic state Abandoned reasons along the way Losing faith in the emotions that nurtured the heart  In troubled times, when the world becomes uncaring Cajoled by the ferocity; masked in some otherworldly charm Misguiding the … Continue reading Fate of Emotions

Stubborn Images

Trust the eyes, after all, they have to see throughout the days conflicting images Of human manipulations; still, seeing is believing, has become an insubstantial saying Distractions direct them to look here and there- unsincere, uncertain, unimpressed Yet, they absorb the images ravenously, almost as if trying to hide its deep incredulity It’s a delight to dance with the light and rhythmically reconcile with the … Continue reading Stubborn Images

Estranged Times

Estranged times have been documented with details Interspersed with little details of lovely time that struggled then Manuscripts were meant to be read and lessons not repeated Oft, the inspiration to enact the similar plots adapted to present times Engineering the similar characters with newer, more volatile dialogues Natural scenes draped in miserable sentiments- the spirits smile strenuously Power of worldly destruction through fiends from … Continue reading Estranged Times

Cannot Rest

I cannot rest my mind on this tumultuous earth Softer dreams have been pulled away  Present inconveniences were slipped through the yawning door Judgemental errors lead to confiscations of preciousness Of life that is tranquil and sprinkled with golden moments  Unrevealed abysses have opened up  Must be the persistent orders from the ruler of the darkened world Frozen ogres have woken up hastily Years of … Continue reading Cannot Rest

Who Blinks

Who blinks first? One who mocks nature or when nature upturns all the dreams Where that bitterness has time to mingle with the multitude Withering love and eroding elegance; fate mocks the mysterious attitude Of cursing the silence and solitude; dar’st everyone challenges the universe Speaking in wretched language, the sentiments of meanest nature Bearing the dull load through the journey There’s no time to … Continue reading Who Blinks
