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

Being Enabled

After enabling the dismantling of life amidst blurry times Hostage feelings, dreadful moments travel surreptitiously Through the troubled veins, the jarred existence, and frailties Painting a wonderful lie with the artificial colours is an artistic disdain Climbing against the clamour, the hostile climes, bruise the body Unhealed heart and tremulous mind dreams of insufferable moments Where one goes wrong, and others follow like a delusional … Continue reading Being Enabled

Into the Night

When nights aren’t dizzy because of the unreal silence Oppressed days give a new meaning to life… not a pleasant one Believing that we can outrun the natural occurrences Wearisome communications lessen the interest in the stories It is a perpetual descent from an exalted position Comforting with the delusional facts, and falling into a delirium Vague understanding- all that leads to the forbidden Worrisome … Continue reading Into the Night

An Endless Thing

One could have been guided by the instincts, but the pressurising effects took over and swept away everything. It was nature’s influence; not the kind one, but instigated by the events that were agitating the core of its meditative patience. All the visible tracks are snatched away by the terrible reversal in fate. Nothing is linear, and the routes that appear lead to an uncertain … Continue reading An Endless Thing

Contradictions

Contributing to the contradictions in a carefree manner Ceaseless attempts to change the subject is a charade Conflating the other sentiments with this careless rhythm Call of ambiguity echoes the deep voice of the wild Coarseness in the air reverberates a continuous warning Condensed silence emboldens the contradictions even more Careless detours cannot take away the journeyer’s troubles ~Amitav Continue reading Contradictions

Lifeless Beginnings

Some thoughts are dead beginnings! They cannot be revived but stretched laboriously through the untrodden path. You think, you think, but it really entangles you with lifeless thoughts; consider, it is ‘life-less’, but still has enough life to trouble the mind. It will be humiliating to believe that such contradictions do not have the ability to warp your thought process. It is often the case, … Continue reading Lifeless Beginnings

Spelling it Correctly

If you fall in love with the wrong spelling and inscribe it in your mind obstinately, then the entire meaning is not only distorted, but an alternative reality arises from it. An erroneous spelling is also pronounced with the predominant influence of the phonetically distorted word. Pronunciation matters a lot when you come across a new word and try to use it in a piece … Continue reading Spelling it Correctly

Weathered

The weathered impressions emerge to trouble the soul Determinedly tries to penetrate this life just woken up from a dream There were only rumours about their appearances Senses, especially the eyes seem to have visions of contradictions These images aren’t counter reflections of a time gone awry In reality, the moments are twisted at convenient spaces with ferocity A delusional existence cannot be usurped by … Continue reading Weathered
