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! They are shrewd Won’t allow anyone To interpret- Except for those reflections Carefully attired By the same ideologies One addiction is enough They speak too much A comforting language Of self-praise and hatred Depending on the temper … Continue reading Between Reflections

The Purpose of Purposelessness

People rarely find their real voice when it really matters! The protests of the moment are of retrospective thoughts and judgements thereafter. Complicit or not, the muddled times and heady ideas seem to be more alluring; sometimes, the vacuous feeling of being left behind is also a stimulating factor. Time is perceived to be a nemesis, the obnoxious judge, and it becomes essential to join … Continue reading The Purpose of Purposelessness

Revoked Reality

The reality has been recalled  Its fate is unknown; may be in peril Vainglorious ones have bluffed While speaking about the intentions Looking elsewhere to distract While the feet trampled the roots Definitions, theories, and experiments Pile of numbers once meant something Infinity is not good enough Perpetual trepidations and conflicts Oozes out of the fractious minds Lame chicanery for forced success Even numbers are … Continue reading Revoked Reality

Of being Stuck Somewhere

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

Silenced Silence

Licentious silence; irresolute words wave through these phases Sometimes, never anxious, the uncomfortable calm troubles the garrulous Anticipating the over-anxious tongue to slur through the speeches Asking man to bear the troubles ignited by the unthoughtful elements Tested by the choleric world- an unsettled being choosing many characters Durable chaos, an antithesis to the sublime dreams that are now forgotten folklore Avaricious time, tyrant hearts, … Continue reading Silenced Silence

The Way Ahead- In a Mirror

Does the patience of the past become invalid due to presses of time Dissatisfaction marches on through the tyrannical and leaden paths Wraths of insensitivity, ignorance, and inconvenience develop many faces  The hunger for sympathy grumbles and churns the stomach  Stubborn steps lead to the oppressed territories where knowledge hangs in shame The courage of imbecility detonates inimical time; seeks devastation Where some still fast … Continue reading The Way Ahead- In a Mirror

Alienating Nature

When was nature requested to bloom and reveal all the hues  If it was not from love, but an inconsiderate expectation Probably, nature has deliberately forgotten to satisfy the demands With some fanciful clamour of vulgarity resonating persistently There cannot be a peaceful existence when there’s wantonness Time hoodwinks the onlookers with a mysterious transformation Never has a rude destiny brought satisfaction, abundance, and glory … Continue reading Alienating Nature

Painful Reality

It is sorely tormenting to witness the speechlessness  Thought of to be of some noble dreams the persistent contentions In fairness, the arrogant diktats have settled deeper Eyes never look for anything but the strange occurrences  Compassion suffers silently amidst the fuelled parochial pride  Sinewy thoughts strangulate the consciousness; it’s suffocating Love clings for clemency from the unsolicitous assemblies So mightily the fear has struck … Continue reading Painful Reality
