Sometimes the simplest of gestures puzzles usTruth feels disgustingly surprisingCoarse words without emotional rhymes feel sweeterWithout the knowledge of nurturing lifeIt’s common to release the passionate embraceNature seems unnatural; finding solace between fragile timeSways that bridge, it won’t allow them to passProbably there resides Shangri-La, the mystical clouds are secretiveLike the Mother who is angry on the child, a punishment Till they mend their behavior, … Continue reading Common

Waiting Longer- Hope Etched in Horizon

Longer nights with uncomfortable dreamsAppear those apparitions, looking at unconscious soulSurprisingly, the mornings swiftly enter with another chapterAn emptiness so flushed, an irritated soul, tired, still fumbles Fewer birds to greet nowadays, forlorn trees reminisces the past There is a disconnect; an urge to retrieve the truth diedProbably, an early winter can hibernate life- hoping to transformOnly if Springs were beautiful again, unblemished and vibrantThose … Continue reading Waiting Longer- Hope Etched in Horizon

Rare Moments of Beauty

Some flowers bud and withers before bloom Never to dream again, withered, before fallen again Drooping branches, sign of resignation of nature Tired enough; no passersby, or even some who could caress the beautyToo much to bear, the early boon given away easilySleep, some souls never dream of waking amidst the untimely interruptionRare notes of beauty and it’s fragrance visits the quietest nightWhen moon settles … Continue reading Rare Moments of Beauty

Above and Beyond the Walls

As many walls stood between territoriesOf foundations dug deeper than the misunderstandingMended, when they bent or broke, even been conquered throughVisions walled, dreams that never grew taller than the hatredEnthusiasm of masons, the firm resolve to protect mythsThose scaled by adventurous pacifists were pushed on the other side”You don’t belong”, unaware, that the roots have weakened the foundationSome portions scooped out, to watch a cinema … Continue reading Above and Beyond the Walls

Ignore

Carelessly bypassing reality As if time has no hold on the truth A desperate rush, resembles a tornado Threatening the core of existence Nothing is memorable anymore Truths are mere experiments In a controlled environment Suspicious ingredients of warped world Like a double helix being fixed With new information, a cautionary tale Of being taught to ignore the signs Many, many more to arrive, devious … Continue reading Ignore

Pitter-patter

On the deserted land, barren and shamed, hoping for the return of pulsation Ears on the ground sometimes, looking East, days collapse on the West’s tired cradle Hopeful of the night, fewer stars, a confused and tired soul wishes a clearer sky Dense consciousness, lonelier stillness, closed eyes and prayers in the heart Waiting to reconnect, retrace the paths forgotten over time, historical blunders Passages … Continue reading Pitter-patter
