Early Thoughts

Unhinged dreams meet the morning chorus; the demands to know the answer To a dilemma, a troublesome state of stupor brought upon by the darkness It was yesterday, but continued delirium shamelessly spilt over to this day There is always a constant struggle between personal dreams and collective expectations Happiness from the insanity of a surreal experience has to be kept a secret Art is … Continue reading Early Thoughts

The Expansion

During expansion, many things disappear! Some of them are relegated to the idle corner of the memory, while others, relatively unknown, fade out without a trace. They may not be insignificant, but their fate pulled them towards an early exit. It is difficult linking them to the stored memories because they rarely leave a trail of expectations. I am referring to ‘thoughts’, that have been … Continue reading The Expansion

Between Reflections

Walled by the mirrors Reflections hate each other Tediousness creeps in Feelings claustrophobic Due to lack of air Freshness of variety Eyes feel dull Absorbing the images Oh!

Sometimes time is like an emollient  Sometimes it is like a furious knife  The places are blotchy from harsh lights Weather is not fair either; clingy mess Curious, jealous, and highly corrosive One has to endure that too Heart feels like a guilty tenant Not able to pay the rent with feelings That can ameliorate some of the pain Life feels stuck like a crude … Continue reading Of being Stuck Somewhere

The Dry Phase

The withdrawing sources, the dead arteries  Lifeless- the stranded winds chatter helplessly Perspiring foreheads wipe off the destiny Life’s sudden bend towards an unknown existence Dissipating energies; wasted in arguments This sudden halt leads to an uncanny future So sure, so bold, so arrogant, so sure of everything Challenging the world, even the existence of life Seeds of rage now devour the vibrancy Smudged colours- … Continue reading The Dry Phase
