Ambiguity

Darkness isn’t enough to hide the misdeeds anymore Light has become feebler, compromised… nothing is sacrosanct Touching the most intimate thoughts imprudently Hope has a harrowing definition… defeat is not appalling Befriending the enemies, chasing away the benevolent ones Nature’s become scarily silent in the morning Love has lost that passion… hearts flee because of comparisons Trying to cope with these unnatural changes Doubt has … Continue reading Ambiguity

When The Dreams Leave

While dreaming, I turn away from the earlier ones, feeling saturated and satiated with those experiences. Not that they have been fulfilling! Chances have been squandered for fear of alienating the others. There’s always a feeling of comparison that works against each other. I do not enjoy comparing their uniqueness, but the consciousness rushes in to group them and create an identity to place them … Continue reading When The Dreams Leave

Changes Undesired

Recalcitrant ideas try to wear out the intensity of changes A storm waits patiently, gathering the power to uproot resistance Who would want to be propelled to the future with vagueness?

Somehow, … Continue reading Perceptions of a Performer

Uneasy Confluence

The evenings aren’t content, yesterday, and today too In between, the day plunged due to the diurnal routine Darkness grumbles about the spaces being ceded casually There is no one to allay the fears that gather courage Turbulent shadows hum the sinister subliminal tune Fumes the nature of change- horizon blazes ominously The paths are unsure and life chases across dim alleys Built on so … Continue reading Uneasy Confluence

Ever-Changing

The restrained grey waves crawl towards the oceanic blue Eyes gaze for hours to determine the patterns across a confluence Frankly, the winds have stopped somewhere to playfully steer them It’s not gloominess, but the unhurried moments require patience Time feels like a sedative that numbs the senses to feel that eternity Observe keenly, the shapes advance or magically alter their form As if this … Continue reading Ever-Changing
