Sudden Retreat

Sullen retreat from the celebrations A spectre of impending reality Dreamers are aware Of sudden changes in feelings Drunken revelry over widening chasms It feels so mundane to remain quiet Away from crowded opinions Shattered languages Half-hearted communications A kind of distress everywhere Irregular sighs and complaints Lonely contemplations are rare Hounded by intemperate thoughts Whirlwind adventures Excesses of impulsive decisions ~Amitav Continue reading Sudden Retreat

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

Finding Yourself

Ever get tired of finding yourself? When they insist that you are hiding something If you say, “Nothing”, they look at you compassionately With disbelief within; for they are reflecting on their perception To create a persona they wish to visualise For it to be the final version, in their eyes Plenty of erosions and aberrations, cliches and tightfisted comments Where the hell are you … Continue reading Finding Yourself

Chaotic Order

The justifications of unjustifiable, the absurdity of lies Speaking at inappropriate moments in a debased language Cringe-worthy exaggerations of body language Like the magician’s distractionary tricks to pull off a show The urgency of deception crafts many masks skillfully Who are they? Whom to believe? Is there no one to whom one can speak without being ridiculed Silent, but that scathing judgemental eyes grabbing the … Continue reading Chaotic Order

Contrasting Reality

Curtains lifeless, the bed indifferent and less caring to the supine body Eyes startled, and maybe a little lost too, survey the sharp corners of the room Contrasts bring out the disproportionateness of a life that is yet to come out of a reverie At times like this, the senses are half-awakened, but the mind is quite frantic Searching for that meaning beyond the discrepancies … Continue reading Contrasting Reality
