False Alarm

False alarm during the darkest time of the night Dreams fluttered like the caged birds waiting to freed Such anomalies strike at the soul of the consciousness Drowsy visions scan the room like a traveller lost Trudging through the endless swirls of irregular paths Is that really you? A sudden curiosity creeps in The voice does not speak the usual language Loud cries of the … Continue reading False Alarm

Rushing towards a Dawn

Rushing towards the morning without taking off the night’s robe Waiting for the first hint of light after a gruelling debate with worries They were eager to write an epitaph without the flair for that language Unwilling to emend the phrases and pauses; they felt so inappropriate First glances of light erased the sense of gloomy deliberation of night The eyes were waiting to decipher … Continue reading Rushing towards a Dawn

It’s the Darkness

Some darknesses are friendly, some are not, others curious, or maybe not; often they are responsible for not recognising the time and the faces around.

The Soul of Darkness

Interpretation of darkness with clarity is laborious Shadows become an obstacle; the mystery loiters to spread gossips Simply finding the faces is a challenge and voices speak of vices Feet move unheeded and the ground feels aloof The disconcerting disconnect, a lure of uncanny feelings  All the doors are shut- of all the uninviting houses with gloomy lights It’s a pity one cannot reach the … Continue reading The Soul of Darkness

Night’s Stillness

Stay still, for the loopholes are the nooses waiting to trap the careless one The world may be fit for the slowness of change Transformations that emerge in tranquil amidst the slowly waning day A moonless night’s mysterious glow echoes the sentiments of a forgotten epoch Walk closer to destiny, the paths that are arranged for the lonely feet  That does not lead to the … Continue reading Night’s Stillness
