Where it Leads

The straggling words pull the mind through a maze Unsuspecting mind wandering there was among the crowd Pulled along the damp ground for the desires to be scattered  No, there are no eager hands to nurture them For convenience, the comparisons are laid to rest A world that is embraced by the darkness feels pleasing Sometimes, sprinkled with stars, the only reason to hope Perspectives … Continue reading Where it Leads

Beyond Expectations

Trying to see above and beyond won’t extend the neck any further Desires of fugitive eyes pull the idle mind towards an anticipated mayhem The defunct compass, the shattered integrity, and heavy breaths of fiends All the delinquent reasons to quench the thirst with some unknown potion Dissolving the remaining reasons of morality to completely subjugate  Ruthless desires stretch the neck beyond the boundaries of … Continue reading Beyond Expectations

It’s Vain

It’s vain to nourish the soul with jealousy and pride The self-traitorous one wants to snatch away someone else’s morsels Innermost greed weakens life’s forces and consumes the soul like ravenous termites Vainglorious wisdom set-off the unfortunate events of destruction Insalubrious mind wouldn’t mind unleashing a tirade against freedom and love Ignorance is unrepentant; a hardened heart and crumbly soul is perfidious Avaricious dreams devour … Continue reading It’s Vain

The Echoes

Wonder which language the ancient monuments speak Once grand and glory of an Age they survive the onslaught of time Many mysteries are whispered by the walls, remain still in oblivion Not all the stories have been narrated and those spirits await liberation Narratives remain relevant forever as eternity carries them Listen to the murmurs of the mountains and impatience in surrounding winds Echoes between the … Continue reading The Echoes

As Night Descends

As night descends in the windswept city There is a palpable discomfort in the air Uneasy, the soul resonates with the agony Silhouettes of few trees against the backdrop The branches, like the child’s raised arm In prayer, for reprieve from the stifled air City footsteps have uprooted their dynasty Dwellers, to and fro, across the city roads Rushing through the cityscape in a blur … Continue reading As Night Descends
