I Cannot Follow the Stories

You speak in haste and voices change tracks without warning My ears are strained while listening to your stories Before my mind can examine, they get entangled with a new theme It irks me that I cannot listen to you in leisure Go away- travel some more, gather some more stories; carry some patience next time As if your tongue is misdirected by the misdirected … Continue reading I Cannot Follow the Stories

In The Rush

While we do not condemn the rush, being pushed around unnecessarily Without permission to speak against the culture of inaccessible freedom There is a feeble definition of freedom that is being painted in a shameless gloss Is there any scope of narrating the desires like the peaceful storyteller Who can reflect on every possible sentiment that human existence could not articulate Much of the emphasis … Continue reading In The Rush

During Those Times

During one of those inattentive times, arcane thoughts settle somewhere Illustrious days are no more, now they are taken over by lethargy and laments It is treachery! It is not even wild purity, but a degraded sentiment Layers the skies and artefacts that are being carved and destroyed by another Is there an attempt to amuse everyone with some kind of nonsense?

It is not the language barrier, but the inability to connect with the sentiment, history, and … Continue reading The Story of Stories

Some Moments of Unrest

Some moments are remembered in the epics, repeatedly We can only understand their fragments from recitations Different voices, rhythm, and the spirits of those passages It is not about mistrust, but the interpretations are different Sometimes elaborate, others believe in brevity, while some are cryptic Narrated in nebulous moments, while others, in daring light Breezy readings, as if the entire epic reveals itself easily Most … Continue reading Some Moments of Unrest

The Esoteric Fonts

The fonts of the earth are esoteric; a language of a more conscious nature rarely resonates with the commonly spoken ones. Such a language does not clamour for space and has the essential rhythm of the universe. The language of such clarity do not congregate at a place for long; they dissipate into the ephemeral reality. Only keen senses have the ability to read and … Continue reading The Esoteric Fonts

If you Consider…

If you consider the process of writing, it may feel pointless, lethargic, and indescribably excruciating. A story never starts with the idea of convincing anyone; not even the writer. The genesis of a plot, be it poetry, fiction, and non-fiction, can surprisingly spring from a forgotten moment. Time slows down, no doubt; there is an overwhelming moment when so many ideas rush towards the seemingly … Continue reading If you Consider…
