Find A Way

The pain, an architect, a construct where I have had to lose myself Looking for a way when reason fades and seasons vulnerable to the times There are no wrongs, I have not chosen left or right, a diversion that I created through the facade Being on a journey, but dragged back by memories Every single moment, starting early isn’t enough; wish I find the … Continue reading Find A Way

There is No Pure Light

The era is quite dry, humid sometimes, but sudden deluge of nature’s rage Dampened moods, there is no other way out of this conundrum Light, not bright enough, clouded by the tired industries, demands, more demands Not simple dreams, it’s said, “you’re a failure, when you lose the urge to possess more Like a surrender to the persistent distractions, corners of life crowded Devoured spaces … Continue reading There is No Pure Light

Incentives

Nought! Utter those words, feel those emotions, they’re purely yours, takes courage to spill them over Already too much turmoil, spaces encroached with trivialities, a trick to lure, away from reality Whence do you gather that courage, a timely intervention to escape the prolonged drought Lines and passages do not have a promised contract, literary journeys are lonely; face your own chaos Not the best … Continue reading Incentives

Why write?

Write when the creative juices flow, struck by a passionate creative angst to carve out our own stories, nurture them, praise them or put them on a pedestal, with ink, carving out their space, before presenting them to the world for some sincere scrutiny and sometimes harsh critiques.

Hope Is Alive

One never sleeps over the whiteness Mute feelings seem to quiver…strange moments Unfamiliar warmth fills the room, a new energy Daring to wander and imagine an alternate world A future may have been lying idle for so long Neither the dreams nor the silent contemplations yielded Here I was looking at the expected paleness Yet, dreaming of a brilliant path through the old passage Supreme … Continue reading Hope Is Alive

Where Imaginations Lead

Delicate scenes born from the tranquil emotions Travel as far as you can imagine, create new destinations Between you and the Universe, the precious conversations Guides life through the undulating journey of new visions It may be seen as a betrayal by the indignant world Self-indulgent, monotonously didactic in a stern tone Easier falling into the etched out patterns, a deeper trauma Carved into them … Continue reading Where Imaginations Lead
