When Paused

Frayed time looks pugnaciously over an extended gloominess Smudged smiles, furrows run deep across the eccentric actions of mankind Sways of time, indifferent weather and an impatient excitement runs deep Across scrambling feelings; even the little pauses jolt them out of a reverie For those who have pushed back and withdrawn from the incessant chaos Might have discovered another world of unlit passion with ancient … Continue reading When Paused

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

The Unreasonable

That intense euphoria may not be what it seems to be Consisting of extreme sadness, exaggerated by a faulty reflection It becomes difficult visualising the entire canvas… the unreasonable fusion of colours Alone, it dawns with a gloomy truthfulness- the stark reality of grief Upending an entire life with a mere push of impulsiveness Everything that once had splendour is covered with an incoherent sheet … Continue reading The Unreasonable

Being Enabled

After enabling the dismantling of life amidst blurry times Hostage feelings, dreadful moments travel surreptitiously Through the troubled veins, the jarred existence, and frailties Painting a wonderful lie with the artificial colours is an artistic disdain Climbing against the clamour, the hostile climes, bruise the body Unhealed heart and tremulous mind dreams of insufferable moments Where one goes wrong, and others follow like a delusional … Continue reading Being Enabled

Impractical Reasons

Staring at the clock with feigned seriousness You have already decided on the reality Thorough planning to create more disorderliness It is offending to witness the ascending pain Wrong analogies spoil the stories The distorted clocks are a reminder Growing insanity, while being clueless about time Keeping track of life like a stalker Spiral of lies are commonly occurring motifs Your senses are befooled The … Continue reading Impractical Reasons

Unnecessary Ridicule

Absolve the soul of unnecessary ridicule Unable to yield to the conspiracies Through numerous unplanned journeys Out of desperation and restlessness Whose fault is it to venture? None of those dreams troubled thee It was the rush to possess something else An affinity to roam the darkness Erasing the directions and guidance Befouled languages crush communications Life on an uncontrollable flame Struggles of a soul … Continue reading Unnecessary Ridicule

Down That Difficult Path

The thoughts that are led across a difficult path Waiting for darkness to descend, for lights expose Those deeds of rapscallions to spin a sinister deal Wrapped in a suspiciously garish disguise of lies Handed down to propagate a dishonourable theory A curse that has sunk deeper and flows effortlessly Dragged along difficulties in rushed fascination A heart leaps out of reasons- a known betrayal … Continue reading Down That Difficult Path

Muted, But Heard Everywhere

A silence of shame, on being confronted by the truth Guilt measured in a muted breath Murmurs give away a disarrayed narrative So many words have been stolen and placed erroneously To structure definitions conveniently Allaying failures with lies- diagnosing some fatal maladies Of which there are no remedies, but more woes In silence, there is complicity too Most of what life could have gathered … Continue reading Muted, But Heard Everywhere

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
