Often Repeated

You can steal the colours from a painting Mastery cannot be imitated Ideas can be stolen and propagated The interpretations will be flawed Sarcasm is always original From emaciated minds, they ooze Language slips through the perforated tongue Just to be heard and taken seriously Or jealous about pure reasons Those who spend their life comprehending A life with the deepest compassion Highlight the flaws … Continue reading Often Repeated

Down That Difficult Path

The thoughts that are led across a difficult path Waiting for darkness to descend, for lights expose Those deeds of rapscallions to spin a sinister deal Wrapped in a suspiciously garish disguise of lies Handed down to propagate a dishonourable theory A curse that has sunk deeper and flows effortlessly Dragged along difficulties in rushed fascination A heart leaps out of reasons- a known betrayal … Continue reading Down That Difficult Path

Muted, But Heard Everywhere

A silence of shame, on being confronted by the truth Guilt measured in a muted breath Murmurs give away a disarrayed narrative So many words have been stolen and placed erroneously To structure definitions conveniently Allaying failures with lies- diagnosing some fatal maladies Of which there are no remedies, but more woes In silence, there is complicity too Most of what life could have gathered … Continue reading Muted, But Heard Everywhere

The Identity Struggles

I don’t know if anything lengthy is relevant anymore. The paucity of time, lack of interest, and some inevitable changes have shifted the consciousness.

Forgotten

The peaceful thoughts, tired and failed, slumps resignedly Cannot complain about the effort to suppress them It was the daily reminders of how too much romanticism fails A world corners them repeatedly They bury themselves in the soul Peacefully, away from the accusations and suspicions No one would have understood them Only the magnanimous soul who understood their language The delicate moments unable to weather … Continue reading Forgotten

What There Is

Mostly that has been gnawed by the ignorance Dull images of barren branches Parched territories still breathe for existence Waiting for a miracle- apprehensions are real Time has been deserted due to the confusion Consciousness dangles precariously The ferocity of the intense wind blunts contours Ages have gone by without remorse There is only stifling narrowness and flailing echoes Scripted chaos turns into an eerie … Continue reading What There Is

Distant They Are-The Eyes Dream

Does that darkness have a special glue to stick the dreams in a collage Only to be seen from a distance like the sparkling stars At the backdrop of a heavy background that seems to be mysterious Unfortunately, there are no steps that will take you up there Dreams give a distant pleasure to the eyes- like an ephemeral moment They exist, but cannot be … Continue reading Distant They Are-The Eyes Dream
