It is uneasy sitting in a crowd and witnessing a burlesque show The light around dips and flips, and takes the elements of fun away Wide-eyed, useless curiosity in the communications that are mundane No one desires to rush outside; wonder, the freedom the auditorium offers In between, the pantomime also fails to mesmerise the tedious audience Thunderous applause after the failed satire on the … Continue reading Is It an Uneasy Show?
Rarely the morning sound melodious at early hours Drowned in despised air, like a thick cloud of sinister age Who shall wake up to this reality and abandon sleep? Drowsy feelings wish to hold on to the ethereal time Only to transcend above the chaos to feel a real world Mindful of irksome darkness that is yet to go away Thinking of a day passing … Continue reading When Everything Wakes Up
If the characters are not ready before the curtain is raised They are seen communicating in wild gestures, the last-minute reminder Of the dialogues and positions, one has to take Some of the poseur’s fill-up the gaps to create a distraction What if the curtains were raised a little later Everything would have seemed different The stage will witness the transformation Various stages of a … Continue reading On the Stage
The mind develops a swagger Thinks about the jokes it can unleash Out on the streets of consciousness There will be spectators Lots of clapping and enthusiasm too Obstinate breath stifles the air A serenity street becomes a market Those in uniforms keep a watch Others look mismatched as their thoughts Too much of delusional confidence Everyone lured to this attendance Loose talk and curses … Continue reading Being Mislead
Do you pull your eyelids over your eyes deliberately? If you are afraid of exposing your eyes to the truth for long, your mind may be influenced to narrate it. Is it pathological psychological conditioning of the consciousness that makes negativity and acrimonious sentiments alluring? It may be quite awkward walking through life with a mind always leaning towards a chronic perspective. Let’s not manipulate … Continue reading What do you See?
Men strut around with ignorance like a fine plumage Learn some fancy language by repeating and memorising When cities are full of unreal dreams; lights severely truncated Dialogues curated by the adorable and stupid minds Since everyone starts to loiter around the same premises From there starts a synchronised march of the crowded mess Tinkering along the way with individuals like a game of chess … Continue reading Unfolding Drama
The impish importance of the imposter When an entire crowd is mesmerised by the jester Pretty scenes enacted on the wobbly stage Such obeisance and applause is a cause of outrage Commonsense dissipate like the maniacal magic One can only witness the events so utterly tragic The misery of the miserable penetrates deep Tears of woes take away life in a vicious sweep ~Amitav Continue reading The Problems
There can be melodrama in brevity too! Only if one is cognizant of the sensibilities of creativity. Lack of forward-thinking perspectives can make criticism a feeble effort to sabotage a piece of work. Creativity cannot be trifled and stifled with frivolousness! There always have been those voices screaming for attention with scant respect for creativity, and thus, making a diabolical review of it. ~Amitav Continue reading The Depth of Brevity
Do the words breathe or suffocate? Truth be cursed; an antagonist to those who repress it Dialogues deceive without delving into the crafty desires Denial, a lethal sword; the lacerations dig deeper Truth smothered is not truth denied, but an antithetical drama Uninspiring, delinquent, and incorrigible Straightjacketed words are distraught of being oppressed All the diktats are written in ugly ink Drunk, they are dunked … Continue reading Cursed Ink
Love is anaemic, fickle, and loves to reside in the deepest abysses filled with darkness Such plight of fright, from the uncaring world that eulogises love and even writes passionate lines on it Ever wondered, the crimson skies may be a warning for the sinister night that wishes to prowl on love seeking hearts How cleverly the tragic drama has been woven with every strand … Continue reading Tragic Love
