Feeble Images

Not the diminishing darkness Persistent shades of it’s rusty feelings stays Avows its decisions to smear the brightness Day starts with a sense of feebleness Dreams intruded the sleep with grim images Where every event pulls you down The fierceness of the visions Periodic paralysis of the vibrant thoughts Hopes flailing against the deluge Time behaves like quicksand There’s no way one can flee the … Continue reading Feeble Images

The Prolonged Winter

When thoughts are feverish and the winter melancholic All the emotions curl up within, a rare display of trust Everything is touched by lies and stories unsuitable for the fainthearted Without fair warning, the deep covers of lamentations hide feelings Trickled down, whilst went unheard for a long time Someone authorizes the forceful surrender of the pure emotions Taking over the consciousness, as if it … Continue reading The Prolonged Winter

The Thoughts Arise

The thoughts ariseBut man cannot think themselves out of themDefective patterns, daily trials, by an unknown forceNothing can be discussed anymore without the volatile responsesEager eyes, not anymore, lascivious visionsLooking for the darkest hours to evoke unsettling dreamsThe thoughts ariseMan cannot rein in the urge to imagineProvocative and out of controlTypical replies, a culture that has been numbingTo each other they lie, disguise in the … Continue reading The Thoughts Arise

After It Paused

Time has paused and retired, so it feels from the unchangeable situations Every day the same illustrations, even the reflections fail the reality test The eyes must be looking at some emerging banter orchestrated by life Prime emotions are missing and precious conversations are misplaced Some are erased by time, others are struggling to prove their identity Thrust upon us the heavy objects with unkindest … Continue reading After It Paused

Not Vacant Anymore

Vacant spaces, feels weird, when there are plenty of hopeless thoughts Waiting to occupy the serenity and tranquility in a rapid movement Initiated by that chaos; imagined by restless minds, during antithetical time Feels ordinary at first glance, but their baneful desires are undercurrents Flowing dangerously through the underground passages, creating deep fissures Grinding against the silence, the indiscriminate decay is a premonition No one … Continue reading Not Vacant Anymore

Gasping

A world gasping for the plight of human troubles Everyone unsettled, every dream affected by turmoil In solitude, I realise my deep connection with the world Not defined by my boundaries, my ideologies Also, shunning those unethical commentaries Beliefs surviving on rhetorical speeches Superstitiously stepping on the principles of the Universe Only by man alone, the course of humanity undermined Affected by indifference, intolerance, discrimination … Continue reading Gasping

Choosing a Way

Is it only a faint faith in life that can give clarity? Placing yourself in the most difficult turns to a blurry road While you cannot stand sincere criticism Surrendering to the untruthful stories; a greater manipulation You assume life to be only that is being whispered Senses lured by the guile of a misdirected crowd Fear of standing alone, seeking peacefully- not fearless enough … Continue reading Choosing a Way

The Unreasonable

That intense euphoria may not be what it seems to be Consisting of extreme sadness, exaggerated by a faulty reflection It becomes difficult visualising the entire canvas… the unreasonable fusion of colours Alone, it dawns with a gloomy truthfulness- the stark reality of grief Upending an entire life with a mere push of impulsiveness Everything that once had splendour is covered with an incoherent sheet … Continue reading The Unreasonable

From the Contradictions

As you think of contradictions to be an excuse There are only new definitions to defend Only after abandoning the primaeval reasons A grandiloquent misdemeanour at someone’s behest The ink was compromised during the transitions Upheavals, wars, conflicts, and cultural turmoil Unrepentant activities of maligning each other Smeared with the once-revered ink- a travesty While uprisings, the destructive ones, were unabated Everyone took the bait … Continue reading From the Contradictions
