Cannot Be

Cannot reduce the glowing sun Hold it in greedy hands Stare at it with lusty eyes Glower at the bright morning Whilst feeling gloomy within Alas! Feel helpless? Become aware of human frailty Glory and gratitude is truth Insignificant facade across the earth Cannot obliterate the truth Embrace eternity? The mirage of lies will vanish Myriad desires like shifting sands Erase all the untruths ~Amitav Continue reading Cannot Be

A Cautionary Tale

Rare chants of sanity amongst the qualms of humanity Widening fault lines; a deeper malaise that worries life Insensitive choices, tired consciousness, the antagonism Patterns of intolerance etched clearly through the ages Today, the past is dissected and interpreted in vicious words Lifting up the burden on fragile shoulders The frail constitution can barely withstand the stress Yet, stressing on the unsettling ideologies- a disaster … Continue reading A Cautionary Tale

Lost Moments

Sometimes you forget too easily… it can be an inevitable circumstance Losing track of all the necessary feelings; some sinister magical spell, maybe There are other urgent thoughts to attend to, even if they are ordinary Rare occasions when the sky is tinged with blood orange hues… it’s another sign Of approaching darkness, without the ostentatious display of emotions Quiet changes are misunderstood- it is … Continue reading Lost Moments

The Unfortunate Surrender

With vile force, you overthrow the chances; the broken promises won’t be mended Breathing laboriously to remain active in the midst of the traditional strife Rising every day with a taste of bitterness- an aftertaste of the poisonous drinks Breaking down the relationships, and burning down the dwellings of hope Standing on the undulating ground… a strong vengeance of the earth’s stirrings Deep down the … Continue reading The Unfortunate Surrender

A Restless State

The subliminal stirrings arise from a darkness While lying down in the deepest recess Light becomes meaningless- from an unknown world they come Long before darkness held the hand lead the way Towards a lonely world, not fond of the tireless talking Difficult being closer to a soul at during faint times Busied with other unnecessary conversations Forlorn love has the longest shadow over the … Continue reading A Restless State

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

Upon What They Rest

Upon what the paths rest, we know not for sure Always the hurried feet may not heed the undercurrent Sometimes looking behind or looking ahead, way too far Carrying the precariously balanced vessel of worries Time pushes the journey; the skirmishes from resisting time If there was any reality of engaging with a fallacy Cagey eyes vision the world with a hostile intent Seeking a … Continue reading Upon What They Rest

Sinister Darkness

The thoughts cling to the dispiriting darkness One soul cannot escape and pulls others into that environment Cunningly looking at each applaud, gauging their sentiments Darkness may be evil, but the one who lures revels in sinful pleasures Treasures from darkness scraped off by the talons Spirits transformed by the one who rules over the dead Weaning the weaklings towards the weaknesses of evil ~Amitav Continue reading Sinister Darkness
