The Sighs

Sighs saunter along the garden streaked with melancholic colours When dreams are difficult to attain at the peak of evolving turmoil A garden loses touch with the beauty of life and colours fade too soon Languorous season lean against the grey sky to signal early slumber Frantic ripples now settle down deep into the hidden vortex of the stream The growing restlessness reflected intermittently in … Continue reading The Sighs

Another Reality

With the personification of pain, there isn’t any clarity On the innate desire to breathe life into lifeless things It’s not the soul’s command to paint a dreary colour Time is not faithful; it’s corrosive nature disintegrates The thought of recovering barely stitched to the heart Is pulled away by the persistent gusts of a chaotic world Impulsive personification, a distortion between parallels That floats … Continue reading Another Reality

Chaotic Order

The justifications of unjustifiable, the absurdity of lies Speaking at inappropriate moments in a debased language Cringe-worthy exaggerations of body language Like the magician’s distractionary tricks to pull off a show The urgency of deception crafts many masks skillfully Who are they? Whom to believe? Is there no one to whom one can speak without being ridiculed Silent, but that scathing judgemental eyes grabbing the … Continue reading Chaotic Order

Unknown Visitor

A pleasant knock on the door Early morning visitor guided by the night Here, at the doorstep waiting for a response The startled eyes and unprepared soul Dreaming of a distant time deluged by falsehoods Who arrived here isn’t trusted Ignoring the gentle reminder from a visitor Woken up from the bed by two realities Ears pressed between the pillows To soften the cacophony of … Continue reading Unknown Visitor

Poetic Chaos and Acceptance

I am not talking about the measure of poetic expression, but a unique way of reciting poetry as it enables one to recite them from memory. It’s like similar solidified particles move around in a rhythm … Continue reading Poetic Chaos and Acceptance

Studied Silence

Today it is a studied silence, not really sure of the sulking appearance at twilight hours Melancholy decided to be an accomplice to stir the already palpable restlessness Thoughts are like wolves loping on unsuspecting predators anticipating a feast Nature’s mechanisms seem to have rusted and thoughts have become obstinate cogs A workman has journeyed through the troubles and stumbled on the way home Here, … Continue reading Studied Silence

Vacuity

The world is crumpled enough It’s difficult reading the silence from choked feelings An unwelcome transformation of the insignificance  This silence isn’t neutral- indignant and chants insolence Words inflamed while being stripped of meanings The uncomfortably folded sentiments  Being scolded by the inherently affected minds Naked words haunt the pristine feelings every day Pages leaden with incriminating notes  There is no chance of turning over … Continue reading Vacuity
