A Silence Speaks

It is not that quiet after all There is a kind of mysterious silence which is enthusiastic About finding something Thoughts flow like the meandering brook Changing landscapes, different realities Myriad echoes, past truths, and sleeping spirits The past is still relevant Everything surrendered to eternity transforms Even the kind of reality that dawns Birthed at a chosen time, life takes a new meaning The … Continue reading A Silence Speaks

The Contemplations of Silence

It could not have been the gloomiest of days, but its silence was restricting the flow. There were unsettled sentiments waiting to be heard. That was not to be! The figures shifted according to some secret plan and the positions were momentarily filled with trepidation. As if everyone was communicating through that silence. A new way to express deep resentment and unfulfilled desires through a … Continue reading The Contemplations of Silence

Time Cannot

Time cannot be translated, but the words can speak of the philosophy The relevance of the pages are weighed by the gravity of those sentiments It is not fate, but closer to the experiences that time can initiate any moment Always relevant- sometimes praiseworthy, while most of the time reproached Figurative djinns perhaps are repeating the magical words across the world Sometimes, the current of … Continue reading Time Cannot

The Pigments

While checking the papers, there were some extra pigments It was not about glancing through the words, but also reading them with intent Carefully, the other hues appear magically Travelling through another dimension of my existence Here, my reality is, but there, my reality was- the memories retained the colours Feeling exposed! As if the entire world has transformed into a glass orb Bright lights … Continue reading The Pigments

Escapes

How many escapes it would take to close the doors on all the escape routes? Feeling like a prankster, who wishes to befuddle the truth by running away Many disguises and excuses, masks and sly speeches, are not enough The self-imposed wall waiting for those hands to puncture them for an escape Each of them unique portals to a dark land of delusion and defeat … Continue reading Escapes

Trapped

Some gain notoriety by speaking the truth Coveted! There are fairy tales woven around it Almost touching the lusciousness in a dream Not being fair about the kind of convenience Distorting truth in a process of transformation The perpetual struggle to be good in their eyes Without spelling the entire truth Somewhere, stuck on a pendulous bridge The uncomfortable creepers hold the feet ~Amitav Continue reading Trapped

Something Superficial

The acts of superficiality become a formidable cage after some time Tightly wound in a convoluted pattern The wired patterns strangle the real essence Immense effort of the toiling minds behind the deeds Time, twisted and forced to a grotesque meaning, crooks reality Delicate senses just evaporate like the fine fragrance Unable to bear the cunning dilemma between life and utter vanity Split images, reflections … Continue reading Something Superficial

Retreat

Wisdom retreats at the hint of the setting sun Unhallowed time trickles down at a steady pace Through space and reality offended by darkness Not the archetypes, but an alternate manifestation Some magician’s interesting twist to the moment Now there is time to interpret the phobic gloom Whence flows time from the conduit of fear The course of time derides remnants of wisdom Apparitions speak … Continue reading Retreat

The Arguments

No one likes the preachy tone, Yet, the minds dither trying to solve the dilemma. Expect the conversations are not pushed further. Against the legitimate arguments; The stars may be aligned wrong, but foibles are unuttered, It becomes an unwritten agreement. The willingness to differ with those cosmic intersections, A feeling of overpowering the darkness world. Impose the diktats on the lit up minds, For … Continue reading The Arguments
