Uneven Circumference

The uneven circumference of a roughly carved crucible What it holds is not much of a concern It barely balances itself; more spills over, creating a disorder Of spilt chances, thoughts, feelings, and love The small craters around the body hold some evidence Collected dust, mistrust, life’s contrast and pastiches Fingerprints coalesced to form some surreal patterns Relationships of convenience, rather than a choice Now, … Continue reading Uneven Circumference

Realisation of Time

Daguerreotype realities, set aside by the ages and fervent time Suddenly fall off the stack of feelings that was forgotten under covers of dust Time slips in again as a glitch in the present moment Uncanny reminders spoken by the staring eyes Notice the background too for the presence of any societal motifs Plain truths are rarely comprehended- until these sudden awakening  Frail memories never … Continue reading Realisation of Time

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

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

Cessation of Dreams

The day sags during its peak, disappointing for the enthusiastic hearts Wilting dreams appear pale; they eyes droop due to the unresponsive images Standstill! Tedious as it may feel, one has to endure the unwelcome silence Language lacks the emotions and unsure feelings search for a safer place to hide There are no legitimate questions that can really awaken the true principles Dare not visit … Continue reading Cessation of Dreams

Of Nothing

When nothing stirs and it feels the time has deserted the world  Borders are blurred, eyes feel lazy to vision any fruitful dreams There are no more stories for now; the mind babbles still Speaking of new adventures with the birth of a sober morning This orb is not made of glass for it to be shattered by foolishness Mundane work anaesthetise the mind, one … Continue reading Of Nothing

Testing Time

It was the test of times and the restive moments were conspiring against the docile feelings that were just trying to survive. As if time were plaited uncomfortably with two distinctly opposite sentiments. There isn’t any reason for life to become restless when there are silence and harmony. Still moments always seem to stir the worst possible emotions; as if the mind is caught between … Continue reading Testing Time

The Soul of Darkness

Interpretation of darkness with clarity is laborious Shadows become an obstacle; the mystery loiters to spread gossips Simply finding the faces is a challenge and voices speak of vices Feet move unheeded and the ground feels aloof The disconcerting disconnect, a lure of uncanny feelings  All the doors are shut- of all the uninviting houses with gloomy lights It’s a pity one cannot reach the … Continue reading The Soul of Darkness
