Outcome

A melancholic stare needles the innocence of early morning beauty Everything is yet to wake up, gather the feelings after darkness departs Coming of the cautious weather through the mist of mysterious events Heart struggles with a slow pace of arrival of feelings that are inspiring Misplaced anguish over little delays- the errant world likes to rush As if running away from the questions and … Continue reading Outcome

The Rare Moments

An open-air theatre; the sounds of a poetic rendition would travel the farthest Such freedom of rhythm born in the heart Today, it will be an extravagant moment for them to seek with sincerity Let it be the unrestrained melody with a rare control over eternity Everything will disappear- the fear, anguish, and city’s laborious movement There will be no measured breath, but only rejoices … Continue reading The Rare Moments

Hope

Eyes have lost their gleam When there’s perpetual twilight in life Feelings are on the ebb Merriment is a rarity in dwindling hope Soul has taken a hiatus from life Trace the shadows to meet an anguished heart Fragile frame unable to fathom unfair competition Not everyone is a born athlete Conversations ricochet from cold lifeless world Fair-minded thoughts never get credence Many bottled feelings are swept … Continue reading Hope

Of Memories and the Present

Memories are locked in the secret vault Present predicament anchored in past Heart still lives in the yesteryear experiences Regales, revels, and some heartbroken tales The immature heart never knew how to choose Memories still come visiting in everyday dreams It takes effort and to pull off the heavy anchor Free the heart from all the memories that debilitate Present becomes an anguishing daily existence … Continue reading Of Memories and the Present
