What to Settle For

It is a dilemma- whether to remain sleepless in a busy world Or, be drowned in a celestial sleep and disconnect from time’s torment The kind of desperation cannot be fathomed I cannot be in a conflicting duality; a reality split by erroneous calculations Abandon the soul and venture out to a wild chase of inferior dreams Contribute to the conspiracies woven around to prove … Continue reading What to Settle For

Down That Difficult Path

The thoughts that are led across a difficult path Waiting for darkness to descend, for lights expose Those deeds of rapscallions to spin a sinister deal Wrapped in a suspiciously garish disguise of lies Handed down to propagate a dishonourable theory A curse that has sunk deeper and flows effortlessly Dragged along difficulties in rushed fascination A heart leaps out of reasons- a known betrayal … Continue reading Down That Difficult Path

Across the lengthy passageways and dark caverns The premise through which you are guided A feeling of dispiritedness creeps … Continue reading The Guides

Retreat

Wisdom retreats at the hint of the setting sun Unhallowed time trickles down at a steady pace Through space and reality offended by darkness Not the archetypes, but an alternate manifestation Some magician’s interesting twist to the moment Now there is time to interpret the phobic gloom Whence flows time from the conduit of fear The course of time derides remnants of wisdom Apparitions speak … Continue reading Retreat
