First Appearance

Who knew the beginning will be an enigma, but here we are still puzzled, complexities wrapped around consciousness Seeking a definite purpose, with codes of morality, ironed out, but the creases are still evident Lack of evidence, exhaustive calculations and hypotheses; but the transformations are subtle and beyond any perceptible change, the one we can control Every period with their own set of problems, a … Continue reading First Appearance

Receding- A Poem

Time recedes, shadow diminishes, lights fickle, I am satisfied when there’s fewer interference Becoming less involved in mere interpretations and interactions; I like the pause, where all the moving images slow down, some grainy memories vanish too Life is less definable, I do not even know the keywords anymore; I do not fill in the lengthy blanks with abbreviated emotions I cannot explain anymore, but … Continue reading Receding- A Poem
