Contrary Perceptions

It’s difficult to focus away from the lament and appreciate the verses Whether it is dislike, disenchantment, and delusional aversion, is debated in every age Truth is unbearable; chronicling the temperamental world’s deviations Not all of them have the same background, but the prevalent contempt cannot be erased Symmetrical, ungainly, and even preposterous sometimes can still speak the truth Drafts of a craft, when it … Continue reading Contrary Perceptions

Fatal Obsession

Feelings aren’t expurgated; they do not carry the same innocence once it gets caught in that act Conditions of the heart become feeble when harsh conditions are dictated by an oppressor World’s obsession with curbing the natural enthusiasm has distorted the meaning of love With all those frozen emotions losing their charm flow aimlessly like a forgotten brook through a dark forest Taut nerves form … Continue reading Fatal Obsession

Washed Away

There is no discord, but probably being ignored for a while upped the annoyance Who shall intervene for a reconciliation between the aggrieved day and brooding feelings?

It’s Time

Some memories at odd hours come back again, knocking rather impatiently At the time when darkness is about to engulf the day which has been unsatisfactory Even some unwanted guests are here at the door; to seek an audience, or just disturb the silence with some banter In times of dilemma, no one wants to listen patiently or be there to share the burden of … Continue reading It’s Time

Evil Eye

Jealousy, the bellicose resident offers an alternative narrative Suggesting departure from the norm From a life of compassion to a more tumultuous one, monitored by the hawkish eyes Provoke fire and fury, burn peace within, and play with the cinders Sinking into the soul with a vengeance The fury of jealousy burns brighter than the harshest summers  Impaled by the severe predicament, it’s just an … Continue reading Evil Eye
