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

When Darkness Has Clarity

Correspondences at night have more clarity As the crowds disperse There is a kind of transparency when masks fall off The discomfort eases a little Little scope to fool around with the darkness Persuasively pulls the real character out Glorified struggles take shelter somewhere Leaving the character bare- unnecessary liabilities So many feelings escape the commotion A cumbersome day misdirects the soul Night returns every … Continue reading When Darkness Has Clarity

Uncalm

Unsettling calm stubbornly clings to reality Some mysterious stirrings are felt Unfathomable desires conspire against the day Ripples of uneasiness push away radiance A chase against an unwilling soul Cannot decide on light and darkness Sepia background changes the colour of life It hurts after trampling over despair Soundlessness is often mistranslated Sleep comes with rueful dreams ~Amitav Continue reading Uncalm

Eulogy of Lamentations

Lamentations of the poet take shape in the heart It is sincere and private; of all the experiences and observations Only the deliberations in solitude can reveal their intentions They are here to stay for they have found a suitable cave This is an endless world, the poet’s world, where darkness loses its way Why elucidate their concerns or even daily occurrences of being disoriented? … Continue reading Eulogy of Lamentations
