Furtive Glances

Silence is maligned, typical of a world that fashions the daily clamour of a life spinning uncontrollably All about time, the finest manipulator, the magical nuisance of unseen characters, powerful in the dark, surrendered to the unenlightened world Suspicious crowds, with furtive glances, trust is designed and defined by convenient expectations, a ritual in dark spaces So, all the faces look blurry, none defined by … Continue reading Furtive Glances

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

Choosing Trust

An unwavering trust on the fickleness of man Not time alone, but a lot of jostling with ideas Undisguised celebrations of mistaken identities Fidgety hands flipping the pages too soon Waiting to glance at the blunt and rude images Frank discussions traded with secret gossips A crude demonstration of intolerant coexistence Spaces marauded by a crowd; onlookers rejoice Models of insincerity standing on flimsy foundations … Continue reading Choosing Trust

Incidents

Incidents are not incidental anymore Somebody accompanies this chaos… uninvited, unheralded Only spoken disbeliefs… there are fewer written proofs Easily, the ink of antiquity has been diluted Demonstrations and outrage over chicanery The entire volume of triviality becomes heavier every day It is not contradictions anymore, but lack of clarity A polarized world pulls the strings of thoughts irksomely ~Amitav Continue reading Incidents

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

At the Epicentre

At the epicentre of belief, there are no veiled shadows  There is only relentless seeking without the conjectures Thinking of the immensity of the conscious echoing Voix céleste, asking me to surrender my senses Saying, “Seek not the unsympathetic words in multitude” If not for the honest reason, it is not possible to be free From excessive jealousy to indifference; it’s vicious Still, the epicentre … Continue reading At the Epicentre

Discordant

If trust is designed by the not so trustworthy Mislaid arrangements are adorned with common motifs Perpetual mistrust, as the perceptions are askew Calcified thoughts suffer in silence; the mind feels heavy From the explanations of an irreverent designer Emotions take a devious turn across misleading labyrinths It’s an ancient fallacy and walls bear some chilling chronicles Melancholic tones reverberate through the bones The calcified … Continue reading Discordant

To Blend

Inadvertently blending with the rush to contribute to the chaos Creating another faint trail to weave a pattern in multitude of designs Memorabilia of already existing ones are either glorified or despised Everyone wishes to choose dreams that comfort the soul Yet, the saturated clouds of ideologies stalk original desires Theoretical predators push aside sentiments to impregnate the mind With alternative thoughts easily identifiable with … Continue reading To Blend
