Ageless Darkness

The ageless darkness brings life closer to sleepAnother leap in time, where morning mirrors the changeMultitudes of eternity, soul searching in tired clothesCrumbled dreams like paper, when poor poems are written Darkness conceives light, but the dream of eternity eludesJust like the trees become barren in winterSpring may wake up elsewhere, a forgotten soul will search-Amitav Chowdhury Continue reading Ageless Darkness

Curves of Darkness

Darkness does not feel repetitive…dull morning, detachedDays, like addiction, influence the course of lifeSome force dents the vague boundaries Blunt words kill emotions; yet, passions uncontrolled spurs lifeSeeds of discontent, wild desires tamed transform withinArrested between the roots and their sinister wayward waysToday, if I ask someone, “what’s life?”, I find myself mired in minority complex There are no truthful replies, various modifications of liesDamned … Continue reading Curves of Darkness

Pitter-patter

On the deserted land, barren and shamed, hoping for the return of pulsation Ears on the ground sometimes, looking East, days collapse on the West’s tired cradle Hopeful of the night, fewer stars, a confused and tired soul wishes a clearer sky Dense consciousness, lonelier stillness, closed eyes and prayers in the heart Waiting to reconnect, retrace the paths forgotten over time, historical blunders Passages … Continue reading Pitter-patter

Entropy

Mere pawns between the collision of time, the constant side-effects, persistent lethargy Low-cost extravagance, the inferior, the magnified complexes on a highly reflective and reactive mirror There is no bonhomie, jealousy, the degrees of it, sets apart personalities- the inner demons reveal the aberrations Accepting the distortions of a truth loyally has had a long lasting impressions of vigorous contradictions Stubbing out the latent rage, … Continue reading Entropy

Approaching Darkness-Another Journey

Eventide returning to the darkness again, another surrender, lonely soul sighs Time takes a pause before hiding the shadows; a quiet existence takes over Repetitive goodbye’s, tired soul reminisces the vanishing memories Darkness reverberates through the altered existence, a coexistence of reflections and contradictions Forced dreams are boring, better still, to stroll the deserted paths No hurried movements there, not even a whisper of influence … Continue reading Approaching Darkness-Another Journey

Sanguine

Equilibrium; the light feels warm today, there is no inertia, fallen dreams wake up Flickering horizon, one isolated viewer with his back resting on a flaky wall Overstretched horizon looks like a spent comet, trails of time bygone Eras making a comeback, riding on new hopes, like a chariot from a mythical world Once upon a time wolfed down time by a black hole, finds … Continue reading Sanguine

Undisguised Insincerity

Feigned love, failed love, the masked appearances, behind the scenes a scripted chronological deception An exhilarating addiction and euphoria, the quiet hysteria of dark force Orchestrated lust, the trampled trust, like a warfare of counterfeit love; losing a portion of the soul with each crescendo of unhinged emotions All naked, bare emotions, stripped innocence, but a dramatized passion of a struggling soul, the rise of … Continue reading Undisguised Insincerity

Reluctant Waking Up

Why not relinquish the consciousness to the darkness, a burden, an unwilling heaviness amidst morning A sharp contradiction of brightness and dormant emotions, enjoying the gloomy moments Pushing back sleep, the healthy desires, the space to dream of beautiful moments, even if they cannot fructify Defying the odds of them revisiting me, again and again, I fail to shut the door on them, knowing they … Continue reading Reluctant Waking Up
