Of being Stuck Somewhere

Sometimes time is like an emollient  Sometimes it is like a furious knife  The places are blotchy from harsh lights Weather is not fair either; clingy mess Curious, jealous, and highly corrosive One has to endure that too Heart feels like a guilty tenant Not able to pay the rent with feelings That can ameliorate some of the pain Life feels stuck like a crude … Continue reading Of being Stuck Somewhere

Stubborn Feelings

Studied stubbornness stands like a sentinel  Guarding the senses against venturing out  The pages that were forcibly torn out, strangulated Fists of fiends empower them for this task Frankenstein feelings claw the soul in a frenzy A desire to witness the pain and life being wrenched Oh! That knot consists of all possible evils The stubbornness stretches the skin so taut ~Amitav Continue reading Stubborn Feelings

Weathered

The weathered impressions emerge to trouble the soul Determinedly tries to penetrate this life just woken up from a dream There were only rumours about their appearances Senses, especially the eyes seem to have visions of contradictions These images aren’t counter reflections of a time gone awry In reality, the moments are twisted at convenient spaces with ferocity A delusional existence cannot be usurped by … Continue reading Weathered

Horrors of a Mirror

The mirror has a mind of its own and the freedom to hold or reveal  Different lights, perspectives reflected in a different light- either light up the eyes or brings shadows of anxiety Gilded or barren contours, the unseen vulnerabilities test the abilities  Of facing them or turning away abruptly from the unrepentant revelations  Suddenly, all the images feel naked; the flimsy covers of unconvincing … Continue reading Horrors of a Mirror

Flawed

Battling the phantom issues; they rise from the land of darkness Enemies were raised from the spiteful imaginations- gone wild, wild, wild The desire to see through the darkness and wishing for a gift for those warriors Messengers with misinterpreted messages and deeply flawed perceptions Waiting for some fiercely breathtaking adventures in the midst of dusty terrains Shrouded in perpetual darkness; closely, the warriors whisper … Continue reading Flawed

Conceived Thoughts

Thoughts conceived and abandoned, without a companion its adrift Pushed by fierce motion, across turbulent areas of ill-disposed ruminations Gnawed at by their incisiveness; a difficult phase for the unprejudiced  They have to navigate still, without disturbing the violent ideas for now Alone, without a worthy companion, they steer themselves through ignominy A jeering audience filled with vitriol spends the last drop of energy fiercely … Continue reading Conceived Thoughts

Fate of Emotions

Predatory words took away the best emotions  During some unfanciful moments that allowed them in The sanctified world of a soul’s reverie Malicious eyes already put them in a vile hypnotic state Abandoned reasons along the way Losing faith in the emotions that nurtured the heart  In troubled times, when the world becomes uncaring Cajoled by the ferocity; masked in some otherworldly charm Misguiding the … Continue reading Fate of Emotions

Cannot Rest

I cannot rest my mind on this tumultuous earth Softer dreams have been pulled away  Present inconveniences were slipped through the yawning door Judgemental errors lead to confiscations of preciousness Of life that is tranquil and sprinkled with golden moments  Unrevealed abysses have opened up  Must be the persistent orders from the ruler of the darkened world Frozen ogres have woken up hastily Years of … Continue reading Cannot Rest

Misadventures

The furore started with the incitement of a rumour Thundering voices gathered somewhere added to the clamour Incendiary remarks, shouting in unison- how rage unites the crowd Unfortunate, that life is disgraced, and bluntly it feels cowed Earthquakes of human unrest unsettle the foundation of life Pride, like stubborn armours, tests the resilience of such strife The daring dream of annihilating civilization to fuel the … Continue reading Misadventures
