For Better Times

The barrenness of darkness due to lack of decent metaphors Shadows feel vulnerable too in the midst of the inelegant drama Conceiving beauty from melancholy is the work of masterpiece Words like little finely cut jewels- intricately chiseled to shape the facets The world will reflect on the sheer beauty and resilience of a poet Surviving the adversity with dignity; creativity, a gift to mankind … Continue reading For Better Times

The Wandering Day

The day wanders away aimlessly As if being warned by the stern eyes of an angry world Eternity is boundless and wouldn’t care much Unconfined feelings survive the indifference That unknown uncertainty deluge the masses Misdirected, delirious, and exhausted Angered by the dawn of another day of struggle Inability to persevere with the hastiness Yet, the mind and body is drawn without consent Who blames … Continue reading The Wandering Day

The Silent Night

The forlorn sky, pale sighs, and night of uncomfortable silence Neath the shed a solitary soul rues the missing stars; a bitter feeling Without disturbing the Earth’s slumber, a dreamer embraces coldness Sky summons the wintry feelings and the dull moon’s melancholy echoes Frail winds barely shake the sleeping souls, but this one soul is awake Waiting for the sweet lullaby before the earth wakes … Continue reading The Silent Night

While Wandering

While wandering alone, there’s no one to destroy the name It’s the daring soliloquies that either blame or praise the changing landscapes Sometimes dense, sometimes sparse, there is always some astonishment Of seeing the newness of the good and bad; there’s no vanity or hiding from fear Or, the urge to hide in some deep cavern constructed by the doubtful shadows Their overworked hands and … Continue reading While Wandering

Without the Explanations

Yesterday was inadequately explained I have to carry on with today- the sweet and sour distractions Simply bowing to the persuasion of time; time and again, the incorrigible one There’s no respite from the unflattering moments of rush Simply, there isn’t any simple reason to unfollow the hastening world Roseate moments diluted easily in the harshness of a strict sun Should one forget the happy … Continue reading Without the Explanations

The Facets of Poetry

Apart from composing poetry poets have tried to define poetry. There are myriad explanations, but none could capture the essence of this art in entirety. Just like this universe and our existence, we have always struggled to find purpose and meaning of life. A poet starts composing under different circumstances- sometimes it is euphoric love and passion or intense grief and failure. Nature and spirituality have … Continue reading The Facets of Poetry

Feelings and Dreams

Natural feelings outlive and outshine the inefficient reliance Find their rhyme when daybreak chimes to awaken dreams Streams of feelings uncontrollably desire the allure of morning Rise above the worldliness of trepid feelings, they murmur The songs of brightness, kindness, and limitless joyfulness A course that cleanses the curse of the Chthonic existence Crimson sky, birds fly, feelings try to wake up from slumber Now, … Continue reading Feelings and Dreams

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
