On the Stage

If the characters are not ready before the curtain is raised They are seen communicating in wild gestures, the last-minute reminder Of the dialogues and positions, one has to take Some of the poseur’s fill-up the gaps to create a distraction What if the curtains were raised a little later Everything would have seemed different The stage will witness the transformation Various stages of a … Continue reading On the Stage

Letters

Letters are difficult to find nowadays When everything was poured into those words They were not authors or poets Only simple words in cursive held hands Entrusted with delivering the most intimate speeches They meant so much to the reader The eyes would reflect on the sentences Sometimes, more than once, even for a lifetime Will be kept away as precious jewels in a handmade … Continue reading Letters

What we Determine

While severing the ties with better things with life, there is also the urgency to cure them with a fierce bitter medicine. It is not about Alchemy, but the foolish concoction of therapies devised from the sinister desire to determine the most potent philosophies to be terminally ill. The said drugs are administered to control the pure energies of thoughts, which, at an initial stage … Continue reading What we Determine

Voices Different

Some voices are true Speaks fluently of life, full of positivity Reflecting the inner light Of courage that erases the grey From the other side of unspoken sentiments There are new realizations Maybe, the long pauses are meaningful To translate the tranquil Voice vibrant says, “Time to rejoice” Crafts the most beautiful conversations From near or afar Time is inessential Moments shine like cosmic stars … Continue reading Voices Different

Judgement is Inevitable

The judgements can be alienated, ostracised, and inhumed They pierce the conscience- the good, bad, and ugly Traces everywhere; the naked eyes cannot see, but the heart feels Judgements become a constant phantasm Unnecessary? Ok, let’s sift through them; the human ones can be inhumane What about the truth that is denied a hearing? Circumstances become curiously shaped cauldrons- but the magic is gone Saying … Continue reading Judgement is Inevitable

Such Thoughts become a Burden

When thoughts have a certain flavour And it is unagreeable to the fine tongue, it becomes difficult speaking them with flair; for those who wish to hear it may disappear. Leaving you with those thoughts, unsavoury, but you have to deal with the effects; the unconvincing taste lingers irritatingly. Once, the truth appeared distant and snobbish; the type of sentiment surrounding it proved to be … Continue reading Such Thoughts become a Burden

Yarns

How the thoughts are arranged in the mind like different coloured yarns Segregated and placed according to their urgency To be woven after a long hiatus within; to be designed and interspersed with white spaces The sizzling sounds distract the mind, even the tongue feel the loss of words For a brief moment; it is impolite to be silent in the world where stories are … Continue reading Yarns

Some Days Linger like an Illusion

Some days are like a phantom image; it is the feeling that cannot be described in words as the muddled mind still tries to tussle with the blend of contrasts. As if the morning is way ahead, and almost about to hand over the reins to the creeping midday. This lagging behind can obviously have its own confabulations. It’s not the desired bias of a … Continue reading Some Days Linger like an Illusion
