Between Reflections

Walled by the mirrors Reflections hate each other Tediousness creeps in Feelings claustrophobic Due to lack of air Freshness of variety Eyes feel dull Absorbing the images Oh! They are shrewd Won’t allow anyone To interpret- Except for those reflections Carefully attired By the same ideologies One addiction is enough They speak too much A comforting language Of self-praise and hatred Depending on the temper … Continue reading Between Reflections

Something Superficial

The acts of superficiality become a formidable cage after some time Tightly wound in a convoluted pattern The wired patterns strangle the real essence Immense effort of the toiling minds behind the deeds Time, twisted and forced to a grotesque meaning, crooks reality Delicate senses just evaporate like the fine fragrance Unable to bear the cunning dilemma between life and utter vanity Split images, reflections … Continue reading Something Superficial

Where it Leads

The straggling words pull the mind through a maze Unsuspecting mind wandering there was among the crowd Pulled along the damp ground for the desires to be scattered  No, there are no eager hands to nurture them For convenience, the comparisons are laid to rest A world that is embraced by the darkness feels pleasing Sometimes, sprinkled with stars, the only reason to hope Perspectives … Continue reading Where it Leads

Uneasy Patterns

Vibrant thought cannot merely compress their enthusiasm Through narrowness of an unaesthetic route of literal senselessness Trepidation while following the naivety of those strewn characterisation Masks, masked, and unmasked; stony glares from paradise lost Merriment of masquerading while advancing to besmirch the emotions Strangulating the last garden where philosophies could have blossomed What unfolds from misunderstanding their nature is ghastly At the backdrop of sleazy … Continue reading Uneasy Patterns

Vanity

Vain selection of time to wait in patience to breed impatience What possesses a soul after the mysterious caress of the night Striving in silence to suppress the tranquility; it’s an orthodox moment So many unwanted thoughts crawl all over like slithering vines Caged by them, but now vanity speaks of a different passion Dreaming of giving an artificial splendour to the crumbly walls While … Continue reading Vanity

It’s Vain

It’s vain to nourish the soul with jealousy and pride The self-traitorous one wants to snatch away someone else’s morsels Innermost greed weakens life’s forces and consumes the soul like ravenous termites Vainglorious wisdom set-off the unfortunate events of destruction Insalubrious mind wouldn’t mind unleashing a tirade against freedom and love Ignorance is unrepentant; a hardened heart and crumbly soul is perfidious Avaricious dreams devour … Continue reading It’s Vain

Beyond Symbolism

The words do not become a symbolism of an escapist Neither a pacifist nor a radical activist They merely do not appear from somewhere, but carefully contemplated Speculations can go wrong, as thoughts depraved invade simultaneously All contradictions aren’t indications of well thought of a plot Words are those messenger who can become rebellious Always prudent to take that pen to craft the words carefully There … Continue reading Beyond Symbolism

Poetic Compassion

A poem looking compassionately through someone else’s eyes  Somone who trusts the poet unwaveringly with all the feelings The task of translating them is a responsibility To create an uncontroversial canvas with the same genuineness A poet’s selfless gesture to listen, listen honestly from the heart and soul The poem may not be about the poet’s ‘I’ But it does have eyes to feel someone’s … Continue reading Poetic Compassion

Healing

No one knows how long the lies have been preserved All the storytellers had decided to leave cryptic messages  Here and there, scattered and visibly camouflaged Identifying them is a task; while unearthing some narcissistic treasures Strange incidents have been occurring under the awakened universe Maybe times are inimical for the truth to remain unapproachable Lost languages and wayward wanderings took a different journey A … Continue reading Healing
