Not even a whistle as the wind blows through the idlenessShadows have been playful, they play hide n seekNot really a daydream, but a slice of another realityWithin, everything is quiet, now less curious about tomorrowIt comes…wish, silence was more meaningfulQuaint reflections, only glimpses, nothing substantialNothingness being amplified, but consciousness is enjoying a recessWorried about those stories- they may vanish without a traceStoryteller’s fear is … Continue reading Radio Silence

The Struggle is Real

Living yourself, only with your dreams can be a lonely strugglePressured into adopting an image, a character defined by societyPeople complain if masks when rarely they get an honest replyLove damaged by vagueness until all the layered disguises wear off Not in a lifetime, may be luckier if you probe deeperStrange, when eccentricities turn into a diabolical game While born, the soul begins its struggle … Continue reading The Struggle is Real

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

To Dream Again

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
