Into the Night

When nights aren’t dizzy because of the unreal silence Oppressed days give a new meaning to life… not a pleasant one Believing that we can outrun the natural occurrences Wearisome communications lessen the interest in the stories It is a perpetual descent from an exalted position Comforting with the delusional facts, and falling into a delirium Vague understanding- all that leads to the forbidden Worrisome … Continue reading Into the Night

When Darkness Has Clarity

Correspondences at night have more clarity As the crowds disperse There is a kind of transparency when masks fall off The discomfort eases a little Little scope to fool around with the darkness Persuasively pulls the real character out Glorified struggles take shelter somewhere Leaving the character bare- unnecessary liabilities So many feelings escape the commotion A cumbersome day misdirects the soul Night returns every … Continue reading When Darkness Has Clarity

Some Clarity

Some days appear cleaner- washed away by the overnight rain All the debris and worries; human misapprehensions and mistrusts Disappear, as the rains dream of a new beginning It may be gloomier and quieter, but how peaceful in stillness A difficult night washed by Providential rains looks like a child praying Even for a brief moment, the vagaries of humanity feels distant Now the innocent … Continue reading Some Clarity

Distant They Are-The Eyes Dream

Does that darkness have a special glue to stick the dreams in a collage Only to be seen from a distance like the sparkling stars At the backdrop of a heavy background that seems to be mysterious Unfortunately, there are no steps that will take you up there Dreams give a distant pleasure to the eyes- like an ephemeral moment They exist, but cannot be … Continue reading Distant They Are-The Eyes Dream

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. Darkness can be mysterious, nebulous, and intriguing too. Sometimes, one adopts the mood, not out of choice, but compulsion; the coercion of such darknesses is inevitable. Darkness is magical; it finds its way with clarity, to be at the right … Continue reading It’s the Darkness

Transparency and Illusions

Frail transparency of time veils this reality in a contradictory wall Eager eyes witness the world flooded with different shades of images Light, not light on the eyes, haunts the dreamy visions of the night Deferred truth rests like a burden on the unwilling shoulders Some days crawl rapidly towards the chaotic nucleus of time A coarse touch of error weaken the will to look … Continue reading Transparency and Illusions
