Lost and Found

Lost during the frantic rush of an anxious day Waiting for the night to rescue the uncomfortable situation Curious eyes, condescending looks, and antiquated behavior won’t be there Sincere manipulations devoured by the extreme darkness Surprisingly, the night provides clarity, even some pure light The evils disappear; there must be some purity in the lightless world A darkness born with the honest soul, in time, … Continue reading Lost and Found

Sound of Night

The night’s dead, but the thumping heartbeats reverberate As if trying to wake up and connect to another sleeping reality Somewhere they were pushed back, defeated, and treated poorly Skirmishes are frequent, disruptions and obfuscation of emotions Poisoned with unreal expectations; evil starts spawning in the heart Foul spirits descend during the surreptitious times, fear lurks near A kind of destiny raises its several heads, … Continue reading Sound of Night

Uneasy Vision

The world is still free to test those feelings Huddled in the darkness, escaped from trials Through many challenges and broken resolve Simply defeated by the crawling fear Sleep enters life with ominous signs Humiliated emotions suffer from weary conscience No time to mend relationships Any remorse settles in a grave pit Diminished rays take away the ability to dream Indigent soul stares at crumbling … Continue reading Uneasy Vision

Unkind Hours

The night, extremely nervous, trembles at the first appearance of light Rolls up like an unclean curtain that obfuscated the dreams for too long In all this, the little events, like unkind apparitions, hovered around A world feels distressingly silent on the circumstances of man’s trouble Feeble supporting voices vanish like mysterious smoke, stifled breathing Scarlet skies are not the reflections of untroubled radiance or … Continue reading Unkind Hours

Overshadowed

Occasional congregation of the clouds Grumbling at the despairing landscapes Thirsty eyes frequently stares at the sky Time has etched a difficult pattern One cannot revisit the earlier moments Aching hearts unburden fine feelings Shallow craters do not hold much woes Escapes maddeningly towards oblivion Not that rainy days have arrived yet Only the horizon looks threathening Angry lightning annihilate unseen places Long before one … Continue reading Overshadowed

Cheerless

A plaintive day sits on the pinnacle like an unpolished stone Woebegone feelings, a steady stream of unkind afterthoughts Placid darkness is the most dangerous at complicated moments Feels idyllic to the temporary journeyers after cursory glances Rare chances of looking beyond the thick veil of stoic images A poniard fails to cut thick reins of desolation around the area Tumultuous undercurrents snatch the early … Continue reading Cheerless

Restless

Tired warriors try to conquer everything Warring over the imaginary possessions Created and destroyed, a stuggle against survival Will to exist through troubled passages There was always a better fate to find harmony Time vanquished by heartless spirits, when light dwindles Over so many dreams, of souls tirelessly waiting In darkness, for the light to be more kindhearted Woken up by barbaric advances, so many … Continue reading Restless

A Storm

No one to quieten the storm Restriction on imagining a form Assure the dreams of a tomorrow Plans etched out for deeper sorrow Of peaceful dreams in pure sleep Only broken promises to keep Little fire kindled once now dwindle The darkness out there swindle Attached to the fibrous reality Deluged by a fast-paced calamity On Earth exists incessant rage Truth trapped in a demonic … Continue reading A Storm

Forecast

Paleness fades away Apprehensive time welcomes the uncomfortable brightness Exposing unsettled ways of life Nothing green about life Ashed colours are used to camouflage Anguish of so many lost travellers Breeze gyrates in a trance Erasing the signs from the surfaces Created by the fumbling hands Some cryptic messages Night will be intense Mornings will be graceless Less benevolent and hopeful ~Amitav Continue reading Forecast
