The Uncomfortable Questions

What was so terrifying about the empty spaces The apprehensions about someone who never thought like everyone A sudden change of direction was necessary to deviate Why the exaggerations were preferred over the simple explanations Then wrapped in harshness and a language of extreme nature That altered the tongue, not in a favourable manner Why were the verdant areas filled with hot desert sands The … Continue reading The Uncomfortable Questions

The Chances and Choices

Although afraid of the destructions, and the demons associated with it It is often we have to face them for those who invoke them during a trance of stupidity For them who are not a part of it, they are initiated into that environment in a devious manner Some cabal working tirelessly to make existence difficult for everyone They seek satisfaction by pushing in their … Continue reading The Chances and Choices

Between Reflections

Walled by the mirrors Reflections hate each other Tediousness creeps in Feelings claustrophobic Due to lack of air Freshness of variety Eyes feel dull Absorbing the images Oh! They are shrewd Won’t allow anyone To interpret- Except for those reflections Carefully attired By the same ideologies One addiction is enough They speak too much A comforting language Of self-praise and hatred Depending on the temper … Continue reading Between Reflections

The Dryness

Swaddled with meagre feelings Dryness settles between the creases Like stubborn tenants The dwelling feels dehydrated Robbed of all the precious emotions Through the cunningness and deals Broken promises and evil ambitions From youthful scenes to dreariness The stinging winds become lethal Depraved darkness comes along Masked in a monotonous colour Barren patio stares at desolate roads Comparing the promises and reality As life feels … Continue reading The Dryness

Periodic Frenzy

Feelings of dizziness perpetually hover over the climate unreal When life seems to be full even if the heart feels the void become bigger Days stirrings bring the palpitations to a frenzy; feeds the poor soul Pollens of noxious flowers permeate the air with complicity Becoming forgetful is normal, for there are other worries to care about Embracing the frightening emotions- there is only an … Continue reading Periodic Frenzy

The Persistent Struggle

There are plenty of odd spaces filled with absurdities All that have assembled here reflected the discrepancies Modern times confined to the labels with outrageous price tags The tumultuous times brush against them to change them into rags Difficult, persistently concentrating on the battered narratives Lamenting at the difficulties of arriving at places with alternatives Ignorance wields immense power to diminish the commonsense Effortless adoption … Continue reading The Persistent Struggle

Transparency and Illusions

Frail transparency of time veils this reality in a contradictory wall Eager eyes witness the world flooded with different shades of images Light, not light on the eyes, haunts the dreamy visions of the night Deferred truth rests like a burden on the unwilling shoulders Some days crawl rapidly towards the chaotic nucleus of time A coarse touch of error weaken the will to look … Continue reading Transparency and Illusions

Uneven Circumference

The uneven circumference of a roughly carved crucible What it holds is not much of a concern It barely balances itself; more spills over, creating a disorder Of spilt chances, thoughts, feelings, and love The small craters around the body hold some evidence Collected dust, mistrust, life’s contrast and pastiches Fingerprints coalesced to form some surreal patterns Relationships of convenience, rather than a choice Now, … Continue reading Uneven Circumference

Roots of Dreams

Frazzled dreams fall through the wily chaos Extracted easily; the fragile roots, with subtle remainder of hope Traces of survival clings to them- the fear of being placed in insecurity Of an unconnected fear grips the reality The precariousness is real What about those dreams and their inability to understand their language? The friendly gestures aren’t translated well Imposed constraints of the enemies form a … Continue reading Roots of Dreams
