Irruption

Disappeared in an instant There was no time for lamentations Arguing with the silence Short-lived tremors go deeper Settle down in haste Waiting for the arrival of a future Fraught with distorted dreams Meddling with the darkness Alert! Its sinister character Altered by the vulgar actions Like the fall of Icarus Dreams too suffer the fate Sky reflected across turbulence Shattered landscapes spill rage Fear … Continue reading Irruption

Trust

It is impossible defining trust from a distance, from the words spelt put carefully, but still cannot be distinctly understood by the thorough intuition. Perhaps, that precious feeling is delirious under the circumstances it has to endure. What if trust is simulated in a grand way? There are shrewd ways to script the perfect emotions to fit the expectations. The longing for feelings can take … Continue reading Trust

Stare

You cannot breathe through glass But feel the breathing of another world Separated by unfair feelings In hues of contradictions, they reflect illusory dreams One can be tempted to chase them Fantasy cannot be held with mortal hands The Spirit of the mind is different Residing in a parallel world Receiving directions from a mirage Across vast landscapes of elusive nature Reality in a flash, … Continue reading Stare

Deception

Imprudent night, the dreams are hollow too Inappropriate feelings drape the unlit reality There are no spare sparks from the waning flame Curious faces speak hurriedly, only to blame The dismal moments are surprisingly stubborn Unaware of the repercussions of such proclivity Blind towards the misdeeds- fatal repetitions Lesser senses run amok to wrongfully woo Mischievous chances of diabolical times Speaking the untruths through a … Continue reading Deception

Arriving

Brief moments of respite Sidestepping the tumult Growing protests and chaos Tranquillity is necessary If, still fond of life Time to entwine Emotions and patience Facing the stiff challenges The soul may be weary Dreams are necessary To steal from the darkness Some sanity, stealthily Temporarily overshadowed Light will be there If one has to walk Tirelessly through uncertainty Courageously, seeking answers From the ancient … Continue reading Arriving

Unreliable

No, these are not grandiose times Everything happens according to the time A habit, controlled by a powerful world Exaltation of a different reality here It burns; the body cannot bear the heat Dehydrated minds unable to nurture feelings Heartbeats echo the scared moments Very few precious things to possess Lamentations of unholy transformations Worldly possessions disintegrate Before they appeared like an apparition Killed the … Continue reading Unreliable

Enfeebled

No one can be compelled to interpret the meanings Sometimes, there are none, only beautifully crafted Lengthy composition with a hint of elitist utterances Plucked from the esoteric world, dampened with gloom A strange attraction, splashes of unfathomable ink Of whose composition and chemical nature is unknown Toxic, from the dormant days, it spoils the fragile pages Conquering feelings that are precious, with a venom … Continue reading Enfeebled

Misdirected

Looking in the wrong direction Some mysterious events are distracting Considering you are inattentive Even naive; the reality was not a good tutor Like an early arrival A new destination for an uninitiated traveller Who wished to move around Untrained eyes always look elsewhere Unsolved riddles become trickier Restless soul plans to leave Without planning for the next journey Carrying a troublesome fortune ~Amitav Continue reading Misdirected
