Burden of Surprises

Smothering the surprises and waiting for the stars to dim Making the night different and preparing to hide from the lovely dreams Snatched away and retired to an indiscriminate world Impermanent time embedded in the soul to transform it permanently So resilient! The altered reality is happy to suppress the emotions It’s a vigorous labour to carry the megalithic burdens on frail shoulders Waiting for … Continue reading Burden of Surprises

The City Holds its Breath

The strenuous relationship between the archaic and contemporary When the city was created and everything was fresh and jovial Entire populace immersed themselves in the revelry of witnessing a change Dwellings of dreams, marketplaces, brimming with gossips and local fare There’s a smell of freshness in the undulating air- enthusiasm everywhere Crowds from far look like bright embroidery that embraces the city New avenues, and … Continue reading The City Holds its Breath

The Insanity Rules

Poetic fervour revolves around an esoteric world It is difficult not to be intrigued by the flashes of words Like comets, they rush across the unknown universe Prodigious philosophies seem to be distant  From afar, it is quite a task for the eyes to decipher Silly feelings surround this reality in a misdirected stupor So many nights spent in sleeplessness and solicitude The decrepitude of … Continue reading The Insanity Rules

From Evening to Dawn

Crimson worries, rhythmical silence notes down secretly The calligraphic notes brushed finely by the excellent winds Language divine, pacify them- the heart feels assured for now Dusk covers everything like the loving concern of a mother Says, “sit here as long as you wish, but settle the worries” Tonight, before the long walk back home, feel confident Tired legs must walk towards the bed with … Continue reading From Evening to Dawn

Frazzled dreams fall through the wily chaos Extracted easily; the fragile roots, with subtle remainder of hope Traces of survival clings to them- the fear of being placed in insecurity Of an unconnected fear grips the reality The precariousness is real What about those dreams and their inability to understand their language? The friendly gestures aren’t translated well Imposed constraints of the enemies form a … Continue reading Roots of Dreams

The Flow

The lines could stream ahead if you listen to them with intent Where words do not loiter, thus, deciding on the passage ahead They may proceed silently, resilient against the mighty waves Their soul awakened at the moment they are spoken to politely With grace, purpose explained, armour of timeless wisdom Heedless following through the gloomy passages of time Cherished dreams become frail; eyes grief, … Continue reading The Flow

Narrow Passage

That was very narrow, yet, the feelings were squeezed inconveniently To gain passage, to the meadows of some inconspicuous imaginations  Looking for freshness, brilliance, and cheerfulness- but overturned dreams Capsized feelings gasp for air; though, the vitiated air occupies the space Whatsoever was the dream, these are being excruciatingly passed through  They are apparelled in oddly for the occasion- the journey wasn’t thought of Things … Continue reading Narrow Passage

Of Those Imaginations

Imaginations become feeble when you allow them to become strangers Eyes favour the undesirable, the barren thoughts seat themselves comfortably Discussing the impulsive change in routes that are unkindly and difficult to traverse Palpitations of the wind, tremulous feelings of the valleys, and widespread neglect No hallowed mornings, lights appear and then melt into some unknown reality Nursing negativity in the bosom; it sighs and … Continue reading Of Those Imaginations
