Not Every Day

Early morning, smoky screens, filtered light Indifferent time, but irritates the sanity of life Half-awakened posture, not a masterpiece Is it laziness or perfect apathy towards busyness Difficult to know from a reticent fellow One positive outcome is that voices are mellow Filtered the baloney, but some swearing is heard Still preferable, the laid back  observations They are quite keen, incisive, and critical It’s still … Continue reading Not Every Day

What to Settle For

It is a dilemma- whether to remain sleepless in a busy world Or, be drowned in a celestial sleep and disconnect from time’s torment The kind of desperation cannot be fathomed I cannot be in a conflicting duality; a reality split by erroneous calculations Abandon the soul and venture out to a wild chase of inferior dreams Contribute to the conspiracies woven around to prove … Continue reading What to Settle For

Different Expectations

Untrammelled journeys lead to surprising destinations A whispering of silence reveal many secrets Time leaves a soul alone; almost forgotten by a busy world Feels unfamiliar after a lengthy disconnect Past sacrifices itself in the present tranquillity Future dreams appear with cryptic messages Nothing startling after freeing the soul from obstinate time Unburdening opinions of mistaken identities A persistent battle of perceptions and avaricious deals … Continue reading Different Expectations

Down That Difficult Path

The thoughts that are led across a difficult path Waiting for darkness to descend, for lights expose Those deeds of rapscallions to spin a sinister deal Wrapped in a suspiciously garish disguise of lies Handed down to propagate a dishonourable theory A curse that has sunk deeper and flows effortlessly Dragged along difficulties in rushed fascination A heart leaps out of reasons- a known betrayal … Continue reading Down That Difficult Path

Some Clarity

Some days appear cleaner- washed away by the overnight rain All the debris and worries; human misapprehensions and mistrusts Disappear, as the rains dream of a new beginning It may be gloomier and quieter, but how peaceful in stillness A difficult night washed by Providential rains looks like a child praying Even for a brief moment, the vagaries of humanity feels distant Now the innocent … Continue reading Some Clarity

Muted, But Heard Everywhere

A silence of shame, on being confronted by the truth Guilt measured in a muted breath Murmurs give away a disarrayed narrative So many words have been stolen and placed erroneously To structure definitions conveniently Allaying failures with lies- diagnosing some fatal maladies Of which there are no remedies, but more woes In silence, there is complicity too Most of what life could have gathered … Continue reading Muted, But Heard Everywhere

The Identity Struggles

I don’t know if anything lengthy is relevant anymore. The paucity of time, lack of interest, and some inevitable changes have shifted the consciousness. Our concept of time has become even more vulnerable. Some changes are natural, while the majority of them are thrust upon us. Few think and educate them on how to think! The thinking culture then spreads like a powerful ripple and … Continue reading The Identity Struggles

Another Day

Everything comes to a grinding halt A systematic pattern that runs it all Fall, through the laboured corridors Complicated intersections of society Different roles with matching thoughts Given an identity to live up to them Mornings greet with new tricks Sets the pace of a day, still unnamed Hoping, that today will be different Not of inconvenienced profits and rush The mirror poses a grave … Continue reading Another Day

Forgotten

The peaceful thoughts, tired and failed, slumps resignedly Cannot complain about the effort to suppress them It was the daily reminders of how too much romanticism fails A world corners them repeatedly They bury themselves in the soul Peacefully, away from the accusations and suspicions No one would have understood them Only the magnanimous soul who understood their language The delicate moments unable to weather … Continue reading Forgotten
