Passive Voices

Passive voices earnestly chooses a time to speak urgently About that moment, when everything was dark, and sounds faint An unrest became too much to bear silently; abrasive feelings Hurt even more, when that time chose to stir up a controversy While facing the mirror, the enduring faces and expressions revisited Your expressions had no meaning and became feeble When the other contours became sterner, … Continue reading Passive Voices

Waiting for them to return

Staring curiously at the white spaces, a little twist by the restful fingers, trying to wake up the imaginations in the mind; urge them to wander, transcend the illusions.

Feeble Intensity

If the intensity of this universe is conspired to be neutralized Its radiance being eclipsed deliberately and passion abhorred Why fear its ferocity when you face uncouth repercussions? No!

Where Words Go

So many words squandered away on triviality Many feelings of importance relegated to the edges Which find their way to the creepiest corners Of layers of suppression and inimical principles From there repulsive tales grow stronger Their roots claw the gigantic feet of a monster What Spring will bring no one can anticipate Forecasts of overcast moments are frequent While trading the desires of the … Continue reading Where Words Go
