Reclining

The woolly patterns warm the sky It is a chilly morning unwilling to wake up Wrapped in a comfortable darkness This warm feeling of anonymity and timelessness Labouring through the day feels annoying After a sudden resurgence of worldly emotions Breathing peacefully looking in a mellow home Time feels abundant, assuring, and friendly The images collapse against each other A new marvel of hazy colours … Continue reading Reclining

To Be Really Awake

Lingering doubt about the time this soul really awakens Is it the morning that I can look at leisurely At a time when a world outside is riddled with unreasonable doubts It takes time and patience to recognize my presence After a hiatus, ensconced in  a comfortable darkness I think of escaping the suffering emanating from the chaos Searching for a nothingness, comforting emotions, and … Continue reading To Be Really Awake

Beyond Structures

From where they emerge is an enigma- uncontrolled dilemma Blind spots, psychological delirium, and unresponsive behaviour If the world of introspection is under duress, thoughts dictate Incapable of imagining beyond the usual consciousness Every structure is thought to have a shape- warped they may be A contrived pattern of thoughts densify reality- perceptions matter Strident opinions do not have the depth and conscious articulation Languages … Continue reading Beyond Structures

Ambiguity

Darkness isn’t enough to hide the misdeeds anymore Light has become feebler, compromised… nothing is sacrosanct Touching the most intimate thoughts imprudently Hope has a harrowing definition… defeat is not appalling Befriending the enemies, chasing away the benevolent ones Nature’s become scarily silent in the morning Love has lost that passion… hearts flee because of comparisons Trying to cope with these unnatural changes Doubt has … Continue reading Ambiguity

The Night’s Wishes

Night wishes to be pardoned for the follies Difficult eulogising it as the moon wanes Keeping sleep away, and lovely dreams too Secrets won’t be revealed by the busy time Trying to decipher the confusion and settle Dimmed lights, arrival of gloomy thoughts There are no simple hymns to mollify life It feels vacant, even the echoes fade away Fear of vices creeping into this … Continue reading The Night’s Wishes

Agreeing Reluctantly

Begrudgingly agreeing to the sudden spurt of conversations The night could have gone wrong- the rancour still lingers in the breath Juvenile reactions, maybe, but the day does not carry a friendly sentiment Still churning within, after having fallen asleep after a long battle With questions from the incautious world- replies stifle the tongue A careless body, tired from the conventional emotions; feels strange Somewhere, … Continue reading Agreeing Reluctantly

Letters

Letters are difficult to find nowadays When everything was poured into those words They were not authors or poets Only simple words in cursive held hands Entrusted with delivering the most intimate speeches They meant so much to the reader The eyes would reflect on the sentences Sometimes, more than once, even for a lifetime Will be kept away as precious jewels in a handmade … Continue reading Letters

Feelings About Poetry

Poetry is being written in large numbers, but scarcely discussed. I feel poetry is not read carefully, but literally. The flaws in the nature of reading a poetic piece turn into the general discourse that leaves the poet aside. The words are no doubt important, the essence of poetry is in the poet’s nature of artistic craft which transforms the words into important notes; just … Continue reading Feelings About Poetry

Unhealed

Misdeeds stare like unhealed wounds There isn’t a cure yet, the heart is unwilling to seek Nothing can stop the curve from turning away from light Night foams menacingly; it’s a sinister sign Forfeited all that was offered Trepid breath speaks to the darkness  Soon, the light will fizzle, and the paths blurry Faint reflections too will turn away in hatred Those responsible for muddling … Continue reading Unhealed
