Fading Somewhere

A sulking evening is held feebly by the fading light Stories of a day frivolously spent narrate only spite Always a trembling insincerity while visiting a place Celebrations everywhere, but the heart has a grimace Azure skies have been less hopeful earlier in the day Distressed feel from a journey of travellers who stray Slanting light flows into a tremulous and loosened earth Traveller’s memories … Continue reading Fading Somewhere

Dispel the Darkness

Lights have been long gone Glitches of time or modernity struck by lightning Complete darkness; an evening flinches Used to flashiness and bytes of noisy media Candles that have been forgotten Kept away in a dark corner- just a fancy buying Now, it becomes essential To rush towards that nondescript place Nervous fingers tackle the forgotten items Once lit, they seem magical; medieval too It … Continue reading Dispel the Darkness

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

Silent Contemplations

Silent brooding turns into an uncomfortable tradition of creating a situation With words first, then the emotions start articulating discomfort with language Words drag the mind from the gloomy silence to the centre of conflict and speculations When silence become hard as a rock, it weighs on the soul with its troublesome attitude Deep indentations blemish the once pristine environment of solitary dwelling Every day, the unravelling … Continue reading Silent Contemplations

Worries

Stroking the obstacles etched on the forehead Trying to familiarise with the lines and worries between them A vague journey with huddled fingers Shrinking thinking, while indolence grips the mind Swirling eyes narrate bewilderment; fingers clasped awkwardly A strange gathering of worries and a confused gaze Two distinctly different entities- life and worries; an odd mix It’s a journey of unawareness and surprises ~Amitav Continue reading Worries

Let that be the Course

Not sure, if my contemplations went on for too long Missed the youth to express myself with adequate sentiments Searching for the right words and times of sincere commitments Or, maybe the right moments never occurred that early Is it poetic justice for those times which tried to consume the soul With apparitions luring away the heart towards conclusions They were in cahoots while attempting … Continue reading Let that be the Course

New Reasoning

It takes a while before the mind can grasp morning’s contemplations Languorous eyes are teased by dancing lights of the East First calling of the soul attends to wake up the drowsy mind Gesticulating winds narrate an interesting story of the Earth Setting into motion a new journey that has been pondered upon Answering those questions when they wake up in earnest Senses reconcile with the … Continue reading New Reasoning

Murmurs

Murmurs encircle the bodies  Palms come closer in a bind Contemplations are within Stifled slowly in a friction Hoarse voices scuffle Soul embraces monster Cradled in the bosom Desires die within Rebellion of new lust Devours the bodies Loneliness is deviant For the uninitiated Murmurs buzz louder Lascivious senses arise Minds collide destructively Dreams die in arms Apparitions of life Ebullient demonic eyes  Rejoice the destruction … Continue reading Murmurs
