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

Lost Moments

Sometimes you forget too easily… it can be an inevitable circumstance Losing track of all the necessary feelings; some sinister magical spell, maybe There are other urgent thoughts to attend to, even if they are ordinary Rare occasions when the sky is tinged with blood orange hues… it’s another sign Of approaching darkness, without the ostentatious display of emotions Quiet changes are misunderstood- it is … Continue reading Lost Moments

It Starts With Gloom

There are fewer aureate moments at the waking hours Mysterious reflections take back time into a sinister moment Uprooted and swept away… they never trusted the depths Arise the sorrows during the slightest changes in nature Transformed characters discuss to dispel the mysteries Soon the clouds will form… heavy with dreadful time No other passage seems to be real at the blurry moments While ill-feelings … Continue reading It Starts With Gloom

Solitary

There is a true sense of freedom in solitariness. It is about giving a chance to a soul to strengthen itself to realise a greater purpose of existence. A worthwhile time or moments to discriminate between the useful and unpurposeful thoughts. It is necessary to discriminate and challenge the frivolous thoughts that occupy the mind and drives it towards insanity that disguises itself in vanity. … Continue reading Solitary

Often Repeated

You can steal the colours from a painting Mastery cannot be imitated Ideas can be stolen and propagated The interpretations will be flawed Sarcasm is always original From emaciated minds, they ooze Language slips through the perforated tongue Just to be heard and taken seriously Or jealous about pure reasons Those who spend their life comprehending A life with the deepest compassion Highlight the flaws … Continue reading Often Repeated

Muted, But Heard Everywhere

A silence of shame, on being confronted by the truth Guilt measured in a muted breath Murmurs give away a disarrayed narrative So many words have been stolen and placed erroneously To structure definitions conveniently Allaying failures with lies- diagnosing some fatal maladies Of which there are no remedies, but more woes In silence, there is complicity too Most of what life could have gathered … Continue reading Muted, But Heard Everywhere
