Away from the Crowd

What’s the feeling of walking away from the crowd? Withdrawing all of the identity that had been dispersed  It was difficult identifying them after unnatural transformation Walking into the crowd was never a decision It happens in the rush of life; urged to leave the freedom of solitude You take all of you, remember, the duality of the opposing voice Someone within had been constantly … Continue reading Away from the Crowd

The Voyage

World in your eyes, a universe resides in the soul The Voyage across places of wonder mapped in celestial maps Turmoil from apprehensions follow; that’s a test of resilience How far a voyager will go navigating across turbulent times It’s tyrannical to anchor the free-spirited desires early in life Where every sparkling dream is chastised and doomed Beasts appear in fairy tales and folklores of … Continue reading The Voyage

Discordant

If trust is designed by the not so trustworthy Mislaid arrangements are adorned with common motifs Perpetual mistrust, as the perceptions are askew Calcified thoughts suffer in silence; the mind feels heavy From the explanations of an irreverent designer Emotions take a devious turn across misleading labyrinths It’s an ancient fallacy and walls bear some chilling chronicles Melancholic tones reverberate through the bones The calcified … Continue reading Discordant

Stiff Words

When the words are stiff, they feel discomforted by the offered space Missing nostalgia, also devoid of sentiments that wait outside forever Yearnings on their faces; the sighs mist the window, obscuring the weather Even the lucid understanding transforms into a cloudy apparition of thoughts Unnecessary gossips act like a sharp scissor eager to shred the feelings A stillness of life, wary of any more … Continue reading Stiff Words

Vacuity

The world is crumpled enough It’s difficult reading the silence from choked feelings An unwelcome transformation of the insignificance  This silence isn’t neutral- indignant and chants insolence Words inflamed while being stripped of meanings The uncomfortably folded sentiments  Being scolded by the inherently affected minds Naked words haunt the pristine feelings every day Pages leaden with incriminating notes  There is no chance of turning over … Continue reading Vacuity

It’s Night

Night’s unruffled, not like the day that is pestered with incoherent thoughts Even adventurous, while venturing out to explore unknown landmarks Darkness isn’t blind; for those naysayers who paint it otherwise Maybe an escape for some, but also liberating for those who abhor the day Long tresses of the night combed with love by the soft hands of rays Tranquil soul with a radiant heart … Continue reading It’s Night

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

Confounded

Probably, stuck somewhere amidst the chaotic perspectives Feels reassuring?  Or, just the comfort of being mollified constantly determines everything There is an aspiration to advance, but the cause isn’t so powerful Enduring the repetitiveness numbs the consciousness Why be so aggrieved from the unfolding events that can alleviate? It’s just that the fire of jealousy burns bright, albeit for a brief moment Askant eyes reflect … Continue reading Confounded

The Hum

Unfluctuating hum drowns most of the conflicting decibels Sparse narratives make a splash into the usual ripples Anguished ears pick up the waves, but seek unfettered sounds As the drama unfolds, there is an unexplainable silence Before deliverance from an unmeaningful communiqué An unknown sailor oars the narratives through safe channels Birds perched on the unreachable boughs monitor the change Probably, the keen eyes visions … Continue reading The Hum
