The Knowing and Comprehending

Let’s say, “Do we really know ourselves?” Apart from our name, religion, beliefs, culture, educational degrees et al, can we really describe ourselves in as many words? Words aren’t sufficient, as they can be used to distort the meanings. We give meaning to so many things, yet, we fail to elaborate on them or speak convincingly. We postulate and then build on the possibilities. That … Continue reading The Knowing and Comprehending

Nebulous

Slithering through the crookedness Feeling the rapacious curves; inches away from guilt Quivering timbre bereft of consciousness Consequences get knotted in a charlatan’s design Appearances fail to deceive any more Crumbling mask; the fallen pieces dissolve Nebulous swims the desires of a misguided soul Repeat, repeat, repeat the similar venomous speak Clouded perceptions over the morose eyes Swollen from the fluid of pernicious existence ~Amitav Continue reading Nebulous

Enough Reason

Thinking is an audacious act! When I say this, I do not refer to the mundane thoughts or thinking about what others narrate to you or overhear. Our daily communication is either disrupted or disrupted by blaring useless information. We pick up the portions which we want to hear (selective hearing), as our highly skeptical mind would allow. Somewhere, there is fear of being identified … Continue reading Enough Reason

The Awkwardness

The awkward silence, furtive glances, uneasy shifting, and contorted feelings “Once upon a time…” is a vague introduction, quite common for a fairytale Whose denouement is a contrived happy feeling- language-legerdemain A creative way of colouring the similarities in all ages, but there’s no jubilant triumph The continual disparity, depravity of few, like a chain that locks itself around the next episodes Temerity erupts from … Continue reading The Awkwardness

Disquieting Times

Dissatisfaction cannot be confined for too long from the world. The windows may be closed, but those curious ears pressed against them cannot be reprimanded for their behaviour. The stormy eyes perceive the beautiful landscapes and morning sun to be too bright. The pacifying languages are all generalisations. Nostalgia becomes that strong nauseating aroma lingering around the house in a stubborn manner. The walls and … Continue reading Disquieting Times

Before Interpretations

The letters may have been re-written,  Constructed from the deconstructed realities- Of dogmatism, that has been given wings, Prepared from arcane alphabets, Stolen perspectives cordon off the premise; Structured on a foundation of lies, Visions bowed before coercion, Many empty rooms echo but are unheard, While crowded ones are bustling futility. Midnight extends its stay, And morning light reflects the dark sentiments. Fertile thoughts have … Continue reading Before Interpretations

Trapped Light

Light feels claustrophobic Trapped by the lascivious eyes Eyes that have devoured ominous images Their gaze is disturbing  A predatory relationship with light Collaborating with the unfriendly Chilling flow of life; visible disturbances Endangering the children born Of turmoil that is blood-curdling Love ripped apart savagely Goosebumps reveal the intense fear Acidic tears burn the cheek Many dark rituals to propitiate evil For slandered existence … Continue reading Trapped Light

Archaic Relevance

Words that have been spoken by vintage hearts are completely forgotten Tides of emotions surged ahead and drowned them; dreaming of new bridges They knew the secrets! Fear of man of such cryptic chastisement urges them to take drastic steps Excavating and exposing is an effort in disparaging the silent spirits of forgotten times Yet, they needle the narratives of today; such perforated facts fail … Continue reading Archaic Relevance
